Nice Car. I had a '66 Impala SS with the 327 4spd. Wish I still had... To answer your question... I've never heard of missing engine code stampings on any Chevy engine. All engines are coded with a prefix and a suffix that identify the motor. The first indication that a motor is a Big Block Chevy is if the codes are stamped above the timing chain cover. All Big Blocks are stamped there Read more: Chevy Big Block Identification | eHow.com http://www.ehow.com/way_5147043_chevy-big-block-identification.html#ixzz1bzsi3dfr

checked every bit of block has casting numbers no stamped numbers ordered car new oct 65 took delivery march 66 someone told me they heard of others with no numbers dont know how it happened

Certainly is odd. Maybe yours is the rarest of the breed. Good Luck

If you are brave, go to your local PD and ask to talk to the auto theft detail. If they are receptive to the donuts you brought them, they will not only tell you where to look for the number, they may even help locate it. MAKE SURE you did not do an engine swap. If you did it may be stolen property. In that case, eat the donuts yourself.
