Messages - Bad ass Camaro

So the firewall is the same . Its only the cover that is different between the big and small block . It looks to have the big fuel line too.

There is no motor. It has a 12 bolt with 4 leafs. Its on Ebay auction.

HI, I am looking at a 1968 Camaro which he is claiming to be a big block car. I am looking at the firewall and what I don't know is,do all Camaros have the holes where small block heater core hoses come out from ? My 1968 SS big block car hoses come out from the middle of the heater box but I have never seen underneath what is there . Is there a difference ? Thanks everyone. I am trying to post a pic but I am still very new to the site. I posted a pic of where my hoses come out from . Any help is much appreciated . Thank you

Thank you I really appreciate the help. I am still trying to figure out how to use this site. Another question please. Is it rare to have a engine build date 2 days after the body date ?

I have 2 69 X77 cars that I am trying to sort out for a customer that wants engines for . The first being 9N547247 Nor.182694  Build date 11C    The other being 9N569745 Nor 164288  Build date of 12D. What I can't figure out is why the Nov 3rd week car has a higher number then the Dec 4th week. All help is much appreciated.

 I am guilty of turning a 1967 Camaro 302 into a race car. I don't remember it saying Z-28 back then but it was a original 302 Camaro, no spoiler 4 speed car. Camaros were very cheap to buy back in the day . Only if I knew like so many of us. The only 1 I kept was the 68 SS 396/375 that I bought in 1975 from the original owner. I've owned that car almost 43 years now. Crazy

I don't know. All I can remember my dad saying is the car was made into a race car. I kinda remember that I was in high school like 1970-71 maybe. The number on the block from what I can see is VI220MO  The number are very light, block casting 3892657 K-29-6 heads 3890462 L-13-6 . I am confused about what the balancer is. The balancer is finned. My dad worked for GM for over 30 years and my uncle work in the Tonawanda plant for almost 40 years. I remember them laughing how some cars got the wrong heads ,carburetors and transmissions. Even motors going into the wrong cars. I think you have to take with a grain of salt all these number matching cars when some of them were not made that way to begin with. Dealers back in the days changed many things if the customer wanted it added. I worked for Ford in the 70's and they use to order plain Jane cars and we would add whatever they wanted including interiors . I know there are people that put all there trust in what the NCRS says but personally I think there are way to many variables.

What I believe to be the original balancer on the engine is finned.Build date of 12/20/66. My dad got this engine around 1970. Very confusing .

Does anyone know for sure if the 3817173 balancer was finned on a 67 302 ? I am restoring the engine and I can't seem to find the right answer .  Thank you all.
