I have a 1970 ZR1 engine and I'm trying to track down the car. The engine code is V0211CTV. If anyone can advise on how to use the engine code to find the VIN and eventually the car I would be very appreciative.

To my  knowledge, as per GM production, only 51 ZR1s were produced in the 70, 71, and 72 years. They are very rare. You might try to contact the ZR1 registry.

February 11th.  No vin number?  Maybe an over the counter engine?  No other numbers?

CTV is the correct engine code for a '70 ZR1. If there is NO VIN stamp on the same pad, then it was never installed into a vehicle, and what you have is possibly an over-the-counter engine, or a service replacement.
