Thinking of selling need to know value and is it a 361 or a 350 bored out to a 361?

L360 is a 1958 361:

L - 1958
360 - 361-cid V8
27382 - 26,382nd 1958 361-cid engine built

Standard engine for the 1958 Coronet V8 and Royal was the 325-cid Dodge poly (L325) while the 361-cid B block V8 (L360) was optional. The 350-cid V8 (L350) was standard in the Custom Royal with the 361 optional.

Canadian 1958 Dodge Custom Royals used the Chrysler 354 poly, with engine number prefix "LD3-"

The "2" in the 1958 VIN was for the Coronet V8 or Royal V8. The Custom Royal was "3" while the Coronet Six was "1".

The code for the assembly plant came after the "1". "2" or "3". If the was no letter for the assembly plant, such as in your VIN - LD236525, the car was built at the home plant in Detroit. In the case of Dodge, that was Hamtramck.

Dodges were also built at Los Angeles in 1958 (L), Newark, Delaware (N) and Windsor, Ontario (W).

Some info for 1959 engines:

The "M" is for the 1959 model year

"L" - Not sure what this stands for, but it was used on all Dosge and DeSoto
engines and the B-block engines used in Plymouths.

"361" - 361-cid V8

"21206" - 20,206th engine built (The first one was 1001)

The other numbers are casting numbers. Do not have that enigne number and
I have no transmission casting numbers.

If you check the transmission on the driver's side, toward the rear of the
unit just above the pan rail, you should see some numbers stamped into the
case. That is the transmission part number and I do have listings of those
numbers.
