Odd Engine Number On 1957 392 HEMI

Post by ewoky409 » Mon Jun 14, 2010 4:27 am

I have a '57 392 hemi with the serial number instead of beginning with NE57,it begins with 3NE57.(complete engine # is 3NE57-1787).Can anyone tell me the meaning of the 3?I have owned 2 392s with this same 3 beginning to the engine number.Is this maybe the engine for the 300C??
