Hello #%&@pie-- There is a great site that will tell you a whole lot about the 1979 Corvette. They say Corvette engines have the last six digits of the VIN stamped on the block just ahead of the cylinder head on the right-hand side combined with a three-letter engine code suffix. Take a look for yourself and find out what those numbers mean at-- http://www.100megsfree4.com/corvette/1970/vet79.htm. Good luck from Bovan.
