Another great picture Steve.  Thanks for posting it!

Casting number you posted is correct for 302/327/350 in 1967. 

Is there anything more than V0518HY stamped on the front pad of the block?  And you are sure the letters are H and Y  ?

Post a pic if you can.

Dad and I had a DZ 302 that was from a dirt track sprint car.  Crankshaft thrust was worn when we got it.  It was OK for a while with new bearings and was generally only run 1/4 mile at a time after that after we put it in a 67 Camaro drag car around 1978 or 79.  

We would swap the 302 in and out with an L78.  Both ran similar times by the way with an M21, 4.88 gears and slicks.  Eventually the thrust on the crank got so worn that it needed to be welded up and repaired.  Rather than doing that we dumped it - and ran only the L78 in the car after that. 

Several years later the car got a 406 small block and was sold.  Should have kept that car. We made side exit exhaust for it from 3 inch tubing.

Im shocked you didnt vote for a BB 68..!!..   Grin

That other car was my second choice.  I just looked them over and went with what I thought looked best.  Lots of competition there.  Good luck to everyone.

That car is actually close enough to me where I might go inspect it.

Doing the paint all correct and minor body work won't be cheap for most people, but I could do some of it and get the rest done professionally for a reasonable price.

I looked but I don't see a pic of the POP.  Does someone have it that could send it to me?

Mike, those 302s were the "hot ticket" in certain dirt track stock cars in the 70s.  They saw a lot of abuse.  Usually came from cars that were wrecked.

Parts were parts. If they worked, they were used.  Running on dirt is REALLY hard on engines.

Jerry said it is possible, but when asked at that time we did not know the engine assembly date. I asked him again.

I don't really know.  I would say quite possible in a September assembly, but more doubtful by early October.  

Pistons are standard?  Bearings look original?
