Default 1966 396 corvette

I looked at a 1966 Corvette that was early built looked to be very original but had 396 flags. Did they ever make a 396 1966 Corvette

Early 66 was a 427 the only difference was it was rated at 450 hp rather than 425 horse power. Many years ago I had a small block 66 that I put a Chevelle 396 in and put the 65 396 emblems on the fenders. It was not uncommon. What is the VIN number?
