Most of the cars that have sold at Scottsdale this year so far have been overpriced in my opinion.

And that was a welcome addition to the judging John, well for most people anyway.

To really know what you have you will need to take it apart to see what cam it has and which crankshaft it has.  Also take a valve cover off to see which heads it has.

Just courious...my build date is 08A...would this be number on pad be right..V0801 ME ..It is a V8 glide.but has the hump heads....Randy

Randy,

For common drivetrain components, the date can be very close to the build date of the car.  But even this can vary based on the month and year due to supply issues. etc.

So that engine seems fine for that car.

For years and years I heard rumors of a December 66 built 396 Camaro, but never saw any proof.  

Ever piece of data I have seen says the 67 Camaro with the 396 option did not start until sometime in January of 1967.  First L78 I think was March of 1967.

Original braces are easy to find.  Original solenoid clip, not so easy to find.

I agree.  Pics would help.

Here is the VIN tag for that car.
39  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Motor vin stamp vs. transmission vin stamp on: January 05, 2015, 04:37:01 PM
Unlikely that was the reason (at best).  OTHERWISE it would be there for ALL cars....

Probably will never know the reason why the partial VIN derivative stamp on engines moved around in 1969.

Just like we will probably not know the reason why the partial VIN stamp on transmissions on some Chevelles (mainly Kansas City plant in 1968 ) moved around too.

Let me see if I can find any documentation on it.  I will post it if I can find it.
42  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Transmission Date Codes... on: January 02, 2015, 07:02:53 PM
Gary, I am not sure why some of the letters were skipped.  There must have been a reason, but in the big scheme of things, it doesn't really matter.  We do know what they DID use.

F was possibly skipped because it was too close to an E .  G may have looked to close to being a 6.  J, maybe too close to a 3.


43  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Trim tag and engine stamp opinion on: January 01, 2015, 07:03:54 PM
Sixblade,

We can not reveal ever little detail about everything.  Restampers look on this site too, unfortunately.  We don't want to educate them any more so they make better fakes.  Understand?
44  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Motor vin stamp vs. transmission vin stamp on: December 31, 2014, 05:47:13 PM
Pilot bearing would have normally been installed before the engine and transmission were mated together.

If the partial VIN stamp on the engine and transmission do not match, that should raise a yellow flag.  It is possible they are both factory stamps, but it does raise questions and I would have Kurt take a look at both to verify.  But that is your call.

Welcome Umygirlsherry1432.

Unfortunately, it is difficult to determine if a 1968 Camaro is a Z28, unless the original engine is there.  There are other clues, but as was already posted, please tell us more details about the car and post some pics if you can.
