1966, 04 Feb., the block casting # 3869942 is the original 427/425hp engine that the factory stamped 6115108 T0204IP, which shows the cars VIN number and the Tonawanda, NY Feb 04, 1966 assembly plant and date. The “IP” = Corvette 425hp engine. In 66, only 5,258 Corvettes had this very fast and powerful engine.

1966, 25 Feb., the TRIM TAG shows F25 build date, (Friday Feb. 25, 1966). The St. Louis body number of S4722 means it was the 4,722 nd convertible body made in St. Louis.
