    I am looking to you guys help figuring out what engine I have in my recently traded 1957 Chevy 4 door wagon. The engine code on the front pad is VO424TDJ.
    I am also looking for some parts, I am making a daily driver. I need some interior stuff it could be different colors, Door panels rear flooring Etc.
    Thanks
    Ron.

    Nastyz288 listed it as a 1972 truck 350 or a 1980 van. There are casting numbers on the back of the block that are for block number and the casting date that will clarify what year. Hard to see in a '57.
