Boss block #13244
« on: September 28, 2018, 03:31:40 pm »
Getting ready to sell my Boss 302, I have stamped number on rear of engine block 13244. I know I am missing the last number but would be glad to swap motors so owner could have original block back in there Boss.

Hi Bret,
 I just checked the latest published Registry. There are no VIN numbers registered within the range 13244. Perhaps 113244 but that is not listed either. What are the date codes cast by the starter or stamped on the left front where the timing cover meets the block? Just curious!

 113246 is listed and shows a build date of 10/69 so 113244 could be the original to 0F02G113244. An inexpensive Marti report could confirm this. The other possibility involves too many possible numbers to warrant going that route. I did this for a block I had and it helped my curiosity but not the vehicle.

Makes perfect sense with the Block date.

Hmm... there IS a possibility that it could also be 513244 (build date would be early Oct '69, so an early Sept casting date would fit).

As mentioned, it would take a Basic Marti Report ($18) to get to the bottom of it.

*Any chance you could post a picture of the VIN stamp?
