Partial vin decoding

I just picked up a "429cj" today and was wondering if anyone can decode the partial vin code on the block. I know the heads arent cj from the cast no but the block could be with D1VE 6015 AA cast. Intake manifold isnt cj either but parts were changed with the previous owner. Number on the block is 1Y126807.

Thanks but I've already researched the casting numbers. I've figured out part of it. 1-1971, Y-Wixom engine plant, 1-Mustang. Thats as far as I can get on it. I guess it could have been a CJ before the previous owner changed heads and intake. Is there anything on the crank that would would identify it other than just 429 vs 460 stroke difference?

I know the crank wouldn't identify the vehicle what i meant is there a difference between a regular 429 crank and CJ crank? Yeah I'm full of questions as this is my first big block build.

Re: Partial vin decoding

Were the blocks used for CJ's different from "regular" 429 blocks? The 26807 could be the production sequence number from the vehicle VIN. That is, only if the CJ engines were stamped with the vehicle VIN. I'd think that if the heads and intake are not there, then it may not be a special engine. The block could have some value to a restorer looking for a correct date code, but they would still need the heads and intake.
