Is that the current Picture of the motor after the rebuild or was the rebuild done many years ago

Hi Bill, I see I answered you incorrectly, I thought I had a pic of engine after rebuild in listing, so I stand corrected. That is how it came to me originally.

If the car was built before Chrysler started stamping the partial VIN’s on the block, what is ‘numbers matching’?

You are so correct. Ad should say, numbers matching transmission and original date code correct engine.
I was trying to convey the important part which is the car was born with engine.
Thank you for pointing that out.

Any idea why they would stamp the Vin on the Transmission but not on the Engine?

Can you trace with documentation that the engine was born with that car?
Seems odd the tranny is stamped but not the motor. Not sure why the factory would do that.

No I can't, but reason leads one to believe that. 1968 was the year that engine and trans "were" to be stamped with partial vins, my block is casted in June with a September build date, and it does not have an X in the casting standing for a warranty replacement. My block is not the only unstamped early build out there, Dodge's QC was less than perfect and I am 99% confident my cars engine was born with my car. No one can say 100% because there is no vin. Just another Dodge anomaly.
