Engine Suffix Code and Sequence Number in this Engine:
The engine in this Chevelle is stamped with a “CE” suffix code, then the unit sequence number. According to ChevyTalk.org, the CE code was designated by Chevrolet as a Chevrolet Warrantee replacement engine. I have read that these engines were not sold over the counter, and not available to the general public, but instead limited to dealers as replacement warranty short block engines. It is believed that the CE code stands for Chevrolet Exchange, or possibly Chevrolet Engine. Because sequence numbers can not be duplicated, the sequence number on this engine does not match the body VIN. *Actual engine displacement is unknown due to lack of original Chevrolet paperwork
How to Identify a "Real" 1969 Chevelle SS:
Unlike previous years, there is no specific VIN code for a 1969 Chevelle Super Sport. Instead, the Regular Production Option (RPO) Z25 SS Equipment option was offered. And, to make things a little more confusing, a person could order an SS with bucket seats, or a bench seat, manual transmission or automatic, and even a column shifter for the automatic transmission. And, a Super Sport could come with basic Malibu gauges or the premium SS gauge cluster with a tachometer.
Besides having a factory build sheet or a dealer invoice or a matching 396 engine, it is nearly impossible to document a real 1969 Chevelle SS. But, there are a number of other clues to look for. Other than a few COPO 427 Chevelles. COPO stands for "Central Office Production Order, all 1969 Chevelle Super Sports had big block 396 engines and they came in three horsepower ratings; the 325 horse, the 350 horse, and the 375 horse with solid lifters. One of the surest ways of identifying a real SS is to see if the 396 engine has an engine unit number (engine VIN) that matches the body VIN. Here are a few other clues:
I personally think this is a "real" SS, but I can not 100% verify that this Chevelle is a “Real” RPO Code Z25. Maybe it is, maybe it isn’t. Impossible to know for sure. Because of this, I am selling as Unknown.
