From the GM parts wiki site, in addition to Camaro and Corvette pulley 3927116 shows up under Chevy truck/passenger/Chevelle/Chevy II/Nova, Buick, GMC, and Oldsmobile parts books.

Would the black paint/glosses used on the Chevrolet side necessarily mimic or have to exactly match what was used on the Fisher Body side?  Finish colors obviously must match down to the manufacturer batch number, but were the other paints also required to be standardized across both "sides of the wall", to include gloss levels?

It's in JohnZ's research report article on first gen assembly process, under Fisher Body - Paint Shop Operations section, next to last paragraph.

You might find an answer in the document at this site:

If you google "SAGINAW 7826692" (casting number) it appears that box is minimally used on 77-79 Camaro, Trans Am, etc. and probably even more models and years.

If you can, post up a picture of the engine pad stamp and cowl trim tag.  Do you have any documentation for the car?

Surprising an engine assembled 11/14 was in a car scheduled for 06A.  Especially for an MV application at the LOS plant.  Must have been sitting way back in the corner.

Sort of looks like the firewall AC "suitcase" hole was patched over, then a BBC heater hole cut into the patch?  Kurt said it had a BBC in the past.

How can you tell the trim tag is fake?

It has things wrong with it.  More will chime in, but the issues aren't spelled out so the counterfeiters don't get better.

Trim tag is an obvious fake.

I'd think that they used up all remaining SS350 emblems, as they switched over.

So you're sure the car has a LOS cowl trim tag with an 11E date code, and it's not an 11B?  As mentioned, a picture will help a lot.

Yep, it's in the table/footnotes here.  You often see restored late 67s incorrectly wearing those emblems.

No idea of the differences but the 67 V8 was p/n 6428068.  Looks like the 68-69 and later were in the part number ranges 6428842/43/44 (6 cyl)/45/46 (dual line).  OER seems to make some of the units.
