The car body was built just before the engine and transmission. The serial number for the engine and transmission is not always exactly the same as the unit number of the body (last 6 digits of the VIN). On very old cars the engine serial number was the VIN. In fact, Cadillac used that system through the 1970 model year run. HTH. -Jim
