I'm looking at picking up a Caprice Classic and was wondering if from the VIN you can discern what size/engine it has? IE what digit denotes if it's an LT1 or the baby 4.3? Thanks.

8th digit is the engine code. "P" will be an LT1 5.7l, "W" will be a L99 4.3l. This only applies to 94-96 (10th digit would be R,S, or T). You can also check the trunk sticker for the RPO code (LT1 or L99). 1991-1993 B bodies were available with 305 LO3 and 350 LO5's, but not 350 LT1's.
