    If the 6G1001475 matches the VIN of the car it's the original engine & would be an early production #.

    If the 6G1001475 matches the VIN of the car its not an Electra. This number is for a '60 Flint assembly Invicta.

    Vin G4003684 is a '60 Kansas City Built Buick.

    1960 VIN has 9 digits.
    What is the first digit of the VIN ?
