So I Have my new 58 at home and now want to find out what I can about it.
I am thinking I don't have the 261 engine as it is blue and not green. I haven't taken a thorough look but I don't see the captains bars. The numbers I seen on the engine are; on the passenger side is W9 299189. On the drivers side is 3836848. I can't find either of these numbers on any Chevy look up list.
Also is there a site to decode the serial number etc to see what colour the car was and what engine should be in there
body no 744928

Ok so it does have the captains bars, and is therefore thankfully a 261. It is painted blue and not green which is odd, which can be addressed later
now I just want to find out whether the exterior paint and interior are the original colours.
