One way is to contact the Chevrolet Division of General Motors and request a build sheet for your car.

the block casting number just id's the block as 69 396/402 with 265-375 hp meaning that this block was used in several applications.

109 is the date code JE is the engine code, this is a Chevelle high performance engine (HPE) with an automatic tranny T/H turbo hydramatic.

if it is 1969 you can check on the front pade or were the oil filter is to the right get a light verry hard to see

thanks guys just trrying to prove my 396 375 hp is factory
