1  Orphans - documentation or VIN-stamped drivetrains - in search of the original cars / 1968 - Orphans / 1968 396 325 hp engine 18L324220 on: February 19, 2012, 11:11:04 PM
Pad: T1227MW 18L324220
Block casting number:  3916323
Block casting date:  still looking

Bought this engine out of an 84 Surburban (of all things) that was being scrapped yesterday, was running nice , no smoke, no issues.  Is going in my pace car this spring after I freshen it up unless someone is looking for it.

Yet another machine shop horror story.  I feel for the guy, it literally makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up.  I think I'm going to compile some of these and make a book, something like the old Tales from the Crypt series.

Cancam, is your car an LA built Camaro?

Most people don't have the ASCII code handy for the double tilde, ≈, which in mathematics, reads as "approximately equal to".  So they use the single, ~, which is available on standard keyboards.  In most cases, the single indicates an approximation and can be read the same way as the double.

Really I do!  Finding an L-78 Pace Car would be awesome!

The above engine as been relisted.  The same seller (martha2626) has listed it with a different partial VIN (19N585452) and engine assembly code (V1212DZ)...     Huh

Notice the stats for the bidder for the previous "sale"?

30-Day Summary
Total bids: 2
Items bid on: 1
Bid activity (%) with this seller: 100%

Huh.  Can't tell much from that pad picture.

Someone one put a fake tag on a Pace Car?  GASP!

You're right, there is a lot of strange stuff going on out there these days!

Here's a pic of some seam sealer on a 69 from a thread on .net - might help a little.  Looks like they were very liberal with the stuff!

Jerry's got a tough job.  He's walking a fine line trying to make a living but some of his customers don't really want to hear the truth.

That would still be wrong wouldn't it?  It would have to read "Authentic Camaro Z/28 Trim Tag, VIN plate, and paperwork, with Restoration Drivetrain and Restoration Body"?

I put on a set of 215-60 R15 T/As on last month.  nice ride, no rub issues, and they look "right".   Mine's a driver too.

Open headers are huge, and he's down near sea level, that makes a big difference.  It might do it.

Hmmm.  Interesting question.  I don't think you'll be quite that quick based on what you're saying.  Here's an article from Super Chevy that has a 427 Camaro in it:

Would love to see you run it!

Hope this helps and welcome to the site!
