Mike, there is even a lot of variability in the L35 cars for April of 67 at LOS.  

There are some known cars with early April body assemblies that have late March assembled engines.

Not exactly answering your question, but it is related.

I have seen numerous small block cast on one day and assembled the next (based on casting date and assembly stamp). 

Also saw one assembled the same day it was cast.  I imagine that was cast at the start of the day and assembled at the end.

Too many factors to give a definite answer.  Yes, it depended on the power train combination, number of cars that were being built that week, supply and demand, what was being ordered by the dealers, etc. 

Some dates are tight together, others not so much. Yes, common parts in general had tighter dates, but even that varied.

I am interested in seeing the complete engine pad area without anything blurred out.

I honestly doubt the 3846429 tailhousing on the transmission is original, but that's not a big deal.  Could have been replaced.  

Rest of the transmission sounds original. I did not see the transmission stamped information pic?

Metal tag is correct for 1968 Camaro, M20, 3.07 and 3.31 rear axle.  (AIM says M20 with L34, L35, L48)

Mike, good luck in your search but chances of finding it are very very close to zero without the VIN.

Thanks Clint!

No pics of the pad in the CL ad and if there were any in the ebay auction, they are gone now.  Interesting that starting bid was $5000 with no bids and now the CL price is $5500.

Also, can you post a good clear picture of the stamped numbers on the front pad of the block please?  Thanks

Thanks and will be watching for the update.

It is worth whatever somebody will pay for it. 

Describe it more.  Standard bore?  No issues?  Complete engine?

Just for reference, they made 29,270 SS350 engines in 1967 Camaros.  So it is not overly rare.  I sold a nice bare SS 350 block a while back and I think I got 300 for it.

I received the same email.  Lots of good stuff there...

13  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 1967 Camaro stolen on: October 04, 2014, 06:22:04 PM
Yes, I hope someone does see it and he ends up getting it back soon.

Jon,

Right.  I did not mean I would post it in this thread.  Sorry if that was not clear.  I won't clutter things up with a pic that really is not related.
15  Model Specific Discussions / Trans-Am Camaros / Re: JL8 / J56 4-wheel disc racing brakes on: September 26, 2014, 07:38:49 PM
I agree with you John. 

This is only somewhat related but...

I have single four barrel cast iron intake from a 348 W motor that was cast early in the 1958 model year (can't remember the exact date but it is fall of 1957).  It has an X on it with the casting number.  I will try to post of pic of that sometime.  I have other 348 intakes dated 1958-1960, but none of the others have the X on them.
