Any ideas what this 340 may have come out of?

A late 69 Dart or Barracuda

Barry might be able to narrow it done further

Dang, was hoping it was out of an E-body.
Any more info on what the numbers mean?
I'm guessing the 1st digit, "9" is the model year?
What about the rest?

Thx

But the good thing is they made a lot less 340's in 1969.

Ok, so how do you know it's from a Dart?

Found this in the GTS registry, doubtful it's a match.
I picked up my car around 1995 in south Florida, from a guy I knew that had it for awhile before that. Most likely the engine came from another Florida car.

LS27P9B413***: GTS#606: This is a One-of-58 built 1969 GTS 340 4 speed convertible! Located in Michigan, Mike C. is performing a rotisserie restoration on his rare convertible. The body is painted B5 Bright Blue with black convertible top, black interior, and black bumble bee stripe. This was all powered by a 340, 4 speed, and 3.55 gears.

Still looking for the original 340 for my 69 GTS 1 of 58 convertible, but my VIN is 306021 darn it! frown That must have come out of a very rare late 69 car with the orange 340... stirthepot

Yes 9 is the model year of the car it went into

An E body in 70 would have a 0

Could be a 1969 GTS or 340 Swinger block. The 413*** GTS #606 referenced above was built approx. 280-290 after this one. That car would have been built early/mid-June, 1969.
