Great finding Ed.  Do you or anyone else know if this was also an issue back in 1967?  I have seen at least one more 67 Camaro with this bracket/wire...

Thank you Gary and Ed for your responses. 

This gets even more interesting...  I forgot to tell you that the engine has a security wire attached between the upper control arm shaft and the exhaust manifold on the passenger side of the engine.  From what I was able to research and please correct me if I am wrong, this 3/8" wire securing the engine to the upper control arm prevents the engine mount to break from the result of excessive torque (i.e. sudden acceleration, engine abuse, etc.).  Someone told me this was offered by GM via dealership a few months after the car was introduced to the market (perhaps some sort of recall from the manufacturer) at a cost of $100.  I have seen this hardness in only one other 67 Camaro V8. 

Is this true?  If so, would this be another clue to suggest that indeed, this is the original engine?  As always, I welcome your wisdom in this matter.

Thank you ,

Thanks Ed.  Based on the information that I have, is it OK to call this car a matching #s?

Thank you Ed.  I look forward to sharing/learning early Camaro facts among members of the group.  As for the Protecto-Plate, I don't have it... The number I read of the block where the engine stamp assembly number and the VIN numer should be is T1123MK. No other number present in that area. If I read this number correctly, it is for a Tonawanda factory assembly, 327ci/275HP "L30", with a 3-speed transmission, manufactured on the 23rd day of November 1966.  The car still has the Saginaw 3-speed tranny and the engine's date is a close match to the manufacturing date (11D ) located in the upper left section of the cowl tag.  FYi... The 4th week of November 1966 went from Sunday, November 20 thru Saturday November 26.

I tried to look underneath the seat and under the seats for additional paperwork on the car but there's nothing there...  I also spoke with the second owner (had it for almost 40 years) and he told me that was the original engine.

The car is a true survivor and is in very nice original shape.  It is a convertible with the mountain green color (HH).  An unmolested car which is a joy to drive!

Any help that can lead me to better understand the reason why the VON # is missing would be very appreciated.

Thank you!

Hey guys,  I am new to the group.  Great resource for all of us Camaro lovers!  Quick question:  I have 67 with a 327/275 engine that is missing the VIN number.  it has the manufacturing date code but no serial #.  I was told that many 67 Camaros came w/out this VIN #.  Is this true?  How can I tell the engine is a #s match?  Date and code seem to be correct; however, I don't know where else to look for the engine ID... Any help would be appreciated.
