I bought my 68 XR7 GT without an engine over 20 years ago. I put in a 428 and it's been there ever since. I was curious what came in it originally and that was why I asked about the GT in the post below. Anyway in the vin number the 5th letter is a S and on the door tag the numbers are 65B T 6U 20A 54 7U above that the number 8R93S510252 (VIN). Anybody able to decode it for me? Thanks
