T0706EI ~ Tonawanda Engine Plant ~ July 6 - 327/250hp Powerglide - Baltimore assembly plant. Note difference in the location of the Tonawanda engine stamp and the associated assembly plant VIN derivative between the 396 engine and the 327 engine shown here. It's also been found fairly common that Baltimore often stamped the letter "B" for the number "8" in 1968, 1BB225759 instead of 18B225759.
