There was never a "matching" Daytona engine/chassis correlation. Also not on the very early production.
The early production Daytonas had a "B" followed by a 1 to 2 digit number and then up to a 4 digit number very soon (as mentioned else before). The folio di montaggio actually is the only feature to "prove" the matching correclation between normal chassis number and "special" B ???? number. For those unable to find out about their cars, any classiche certification will relate to the factory internal numbers known and hence rate a engine as "original" or "replaced".
Also, every Daytona has a internal Scaglietti body number. It is sometimes possible to find some interesting stories about damaged or replaced major parts by correlation of those numbers over the chassis and engine number.
Classiche certification will give you a free mind in that case. Much cheaper and faster will be a report from Marcel Massini.
