My new '49 Cadillac has a Gen 2 LT1 engine in it, but it came with what was described to me as the matching numbers original Cadillac 331 engine, complete with the the engine accessories and Hydramatic transmission. Upon Further inspection, I can see that the engine serial doesn't match the frame and title vin for the car, so this isn't the engine that originally came with this car. However, this is a '49 engine and it appears to be in solid shape. My plan over the next few months is to get this engine fired up and running on the stand that it's sitting on!

The serial on the 331 engine (496214688) and the vin from the title (496240485).
