I recenlty aquired a 396 casting code 3855961 which tells me it is a 65-66. The problem I am having is the stamp pad numbers, specifically the suffix code. The numbers read as follows T122IIVR I could be mistaking an I for a 1 but I can't find any VR suffix codes. I do find IV which would be correct for the 1965 but where is this R coming from??? I have researched the web for days and have the chevrolet book of numbers with no success! Save me from my misery!!!!
Thanks for any help!
