I wonder if this idiot really believes what he is saying ! ??? I have heard some real good stories in my old fart days but the numbers not matching takes the cake. Someone is smoking some real good crap. :)

Take a look at the pulleys and the peanut plugs in it . I can't believe the bid is up too 80k ....

I have a 1968 Camaro SS 396/375 that I bought in 1975 but I have never had the stock wheels and tires on the car.It has power disc brakes, the 4 piston cal on the front. I bought it from the orig owner and he asked me if I wanted the original wheels and tires and I said no. What a idiot! Hey I was 19 and my first car but at least I did take the the original SS hood because he had a glass L88 hood on the car. I know there is a round tag on the inside of the glove box door but the car is in storage and hard to get too. The car is a Feb 4 week date .

 I am also doing a 1969 Z-28 X77 car which needs rims and tires too so what are the sizes for that car too.  Thank you everyone for all the help and infor

I could buy the car for 20k and its a real nice driver. Dark green with white SS strips,327 300 hp from a corvette,12 bolt (not the original}3:73 nice interior super straight body. A friend of mine owns it and he is a body man so if you wanted just a very nice driver only it's a great car but not what I am looking for. Since I am on my old stomping grounds I know where there is tons of stuff here so I will be looking for things. I know where there are a few Camaros here. I was hoping this was a true SS but I knew it was to good to be true lol.

Hi everyone, I am up in mass doing a job and I came across a pretty nice 1967 SS Camaro for some very short money but I am not home with all my notes and a limited computer so any help would be much appreciated. I don't have the vin# but here is the cowl plate. Thank you in advance.

Hi Jim , your right that is not a 67 ! It is a 68 and that is easy to see.

Thank you Shane for the kind words. The original plan was to try and find a body but I have given up on that idea. I could have sold this motor many times over the years but I always wanted to finish it as it came from the factory  to the best of my ability. Its been a long hard road to finish.  I am going to sell the motor so someone can enjoy it. I have a 68 SS 396/375 that I bought in 1975 that I am going to restore plus I have other projects I am doing for other people.

I wasn't sure about the fan because I have seem them both ways.That is the original alt but it was full of rust. How did they stop them from rusting if it was a natural finish ?

A few more pics of the little terror lol   Hi Jon

Thanks everyone . I kinda thought they had someway of lifting the engine in 67. I am just going to use the 2 center bolts to remove it from the stand onto a dolly and wrap it up.

Did anyone notice there is no lift hooks on the engine .All the research I did no engines had any hooks. How did they lift the engine ???

If I had a test stand I would break it in before I sell it. Thank you for the compliment.

I am not sure about the sticker but I know the 67 had them . It's had to find original pics of these motors.
