Considering how a born with block can add a third to the price of a car, it easy to see why a block would be restamped.

I didnt find any HP number but they said high rpm engine based on the LT1. Probably nothing streetable!!
The orange is called super crush.

The head is when it was still in the car. It was easier to see than what the picture shows. The side of the block, this was after it was hot tanked.
In either the how to Hotrod your small block Chevy or how to rebuild your small block Chevy, there's some pictures of blocks on the assembly line with the engine code written on the side of the block. Mine looked more like ok but I suppose it could have been DZ

Original Cars and Details / Re: Z28 cowl paint (and Z11/Z10)

Here is my original cowl paint. 03D norwood. These are in a thread here somewhere but thought it would be good with the others. The black on the firewall IS NOT original. The original owner did that with a brush. I believe the dum  dum on the driver side is the original also.

Great pictures Gary.

My first and only other Camaro, was a 67 that I bought about 1985 or 6. The guy I bought it from had restored it and let me to believe it was an original ss396 car. I didn't know any better and it was a nice rust free car with about 30,000 miles on it. Along with the car came a traction bar that was pretty pitted up. He said he never got around to reinstalling it. When I went to put it on the dimples under the back seat had never been pierced. This guy messed around with a lot of Camaros in his time and have learned since, dont trust him!. I later found the car that the traction bar came from. It was a plum color pretty rusty but still had the original spark plug wires on it. Missing it's traction bar. 325 hp 396. My car was originally marina blue, and probaably an RS. Later the guy's brother inform me that it had 327 one time if I remember correctly. The engine was supposed to be fresh, and used some oil. Eventually it wiped the camshaft. I took it apart and he had had the rings upside down on four pistons. He tried to blame his wife. I sold that car at a little auction near me and a guy bought it for his 17 year old son that was staying out all night. He thought it would teach him some responsibility. I watched the newspaper ads after that to see if it ever showed up but I never saw anything out of it again. The one picture is from the super Chevy show in Indianapolis
