help to identifying engine
« on: March 26, 2020, 09:28:27 am »
If anyone has any info on this block I would appreciate it. The tranny number is 141667 and the block is stamped GPD.70.BOSS.302.1   https://postimg.cc/LJfCPPVM

More pictures would help.  Boss 302 blocks are stamped with partial vin numbers not descriptions.  Take a look at this website for more information on the VIN block stampings.   It could still be a service Boss 302 block that an owner or machine shop stamped or?  In any event, more pictures and casting number and date code pictures would help.  These numbers are near the starter motor location on the right back bottom of the block.

DOZE6015B  date 9J15  I was told this engine was used as a set up engine for a race team and the race engine would be installed for the actual race, wondering if tranny serial number could help me tract down more info. The thought of it being a service block crossed my mind.

The tranny serial number should match the block and that should match the car if they are all original.
I looked up 141667 in the 2011 Boss Registry and that VIN for a 1969 Boss 302 is not listed.
For a 1970 Boss 302 Dearborn not listed  and for Metuchen also not listed.
It could still be a legitimate VIN, for 1970,just not listed.

Check if there is an assembly date on the drivers side on the front of the block.

   When you say the trany #,  You mean the #s that are on the tag, that is riveted to the passenger side of the gear box ?  That set of #s are totally different than any #s associated with the block.
