can someone help decode these engine numbers?

These are the numbers that are on the chevy 350 engine that is in my 69 chevy truck. My neighbor showed me a site he found that said the motor was a 73 camaro 350. Now I'm trying to track these numbers myself.

It is a RPO-L65 350c.i. small block assembled in Sept of 1972 for a 1973 model Chevelle/ElCamino.

Decode is;
(13B419492)
1 = Chevrolet Division of GM
3 = 1973 'Model' year
B = Baltimore, MA Final Assembly plant
419492 = the sequential VIN numbering

(T0918CKL)
T = Tonawanda, NY Engine plant
09 = Sept. month of assembly
18 = 18th day of the month assembly
CKL = Usage Suffix - RPO-L65 350c.i. with TH400 trans, 145HP, Single 2bbl carb.

The CKL Suffix designator was used in two (2) vehicles for the 1973 model year - the Chevelle/ElCamino and the Impala.
The Baltimore plant only assembled A and A-Special bodied GM vehicles - so it could only be a Chevelle in this case, not an Impala (which were assembled in Arlington, TX and Oshawa, ONT. Canada) ...
