Is there any chance you can check with the dealership that sold the car originally to see if they have any records of it?

Are you trying to buy the car?  Is it still in the family?

I have my doubts too, but I am very interested and would like to know more. 

Check the date code on the block and heads.  Does the partial VIN on the block match the VIN of the car?

EDB30174 is a 4 series carrier for  3.90:1 & up gears.  I don't know what the 260 or 280 means.  Is there anything else on the ring gear like 41 10 which would be for 4.10 gears ???

OK, thanks.  I thought there was a gasket that went between the louver and the hood, but maybe that is just on the "oil cooler" style or maybe I am just wrong altogether.   Thanks.

Are the gaskets black, gray, or what color?  Tamraz says they have them for 8.95 each plus shipping.  Funny that the Goodmark ones did not have the gaskets and did not mention that they were needed.  There was some of the foam on one side of the bezel but on the ones we have I think that was just to go between the louver and the mesh.  I don't think they were on the outside part of the louver.

Just thought I would pass this along.  Also before I do that I have one question.  Is there supposed to be a gasket that goes between the "stack" type ouver and the hood, and if so what is it made and who makes them?  Sorry, one BIG question with multiple parts.

I have a 68 and my father does too.  He ordered a new Goodmark SS hood and the quality is excellent.  Also ordered the Goodmark "stack" type louvers.  They look excellent.  Here is the problem.  The louvers are flat but it looked like the hood has a slight convex curve to it (center part where the louvers go is a bit higher than the front or back).  They don't fit the greatest, and no gaskets were included.  They came with the louver, grill and backing plate.  So should they fit better if we can find the gasket that goes between the hood and the louver?

I am asking this because he wants his to fit better and I might just do the same thing on my SS.  Mine has a cowl hood now.  His had a flat hood.

Thank You.

Sorry, I noticed how old the ebay listing date was and just figured that the current listing was new.  I did not look at the item number.

This engine may be what it says it is, but I would be cautious.  The 3914678 casting number was also used on the 327 and 350, and with the last letter of the application code in question, I would not be 100 percent sure.  There are 327 and 350 codes in 1968 that start with M.

291 heads are common but the 3279 crank is not common.  Just my 2 cents.

If I was looking for a 302 I would buy it.

I picked up a new Goodmark 67-69 Camaro SS hood today that will go on my father's car over the winter. 
I was very impressed with how it looked, but as of right now I can't comment on how it fits, because it
has not been bolted on yet.

I have an OLDER Goodmark cowl hood on my 68.  It fits OK, but not great.  I think the quality has improved
over the years.  The SS hood I put on my 67 Chevelle fit well - with original fenders.

Try to find a local Goodmark dealer and buy from them.  Sometimes you won't have to pay the shipping
charges if they are putting in a big order or if they order on a regular basis.  That can help keep the cost
down.  I paid under 300, including tax.  That price did not include the louvers.

Could the car in question have a 350 in it and not a 327?  I believe they used the same block casting number.

Check the engine code on the block and also check to see if there is a partial VIN on the engine to see if
it is correct for the car.

It could be an SS 350 car.  Note I said COULD BE.

I don't have much info about the Goodmark Camaro SS hoods, but my dad has one on order.  I will update
you once it arrives and we look it over.

I did buy one for my 67 Chevelle SS and I was impressed.  Very good quality on the one I got.
