I agree with Ed.  $750 for a Saginaw is WAY too high.  Normally they are $200 or less around here and if rebuilt and nice maybe $400.

Dean, I will just say this.  If the VIN is a restamp, it really doesn't matter if the assembly date/suffix stamp is real or not.  The block has been messed with, therefore no original.

L89 is an option, but there is a different application suffix code for L89 engine. 

In 1968, the L78 code for Camaro and Nova is MQ.  It is MT for the L89 396/375hp Camaro.

It appears that 12 bolt rear axles with casting number 3969341 started showing up in 69 Camaros sometime around early August of 1969.  Prior to this, only the 3894860 casting number was used.  

What I am looking for are dates (casting date of housing and assembly date stamp - with letter codes - on the axle tube) for early 3969341 axles and late 3894860 axles.  If you know it is original to the car, you can post the body assembly date from the cowl tag too.

Please let me know what you have.  Post pics if possible.  There was probably somewhat of an overlap, but not sure how much.    

Thanks in advance!

I think that I know why there is a 1/2 inch difference in driveshaft lengths between the '67-68 and '69 driveshafts but want info to verify. I believe it is because there is a difference in lengths of the transmission yokes being used for these years. Can anyone measure their transmission yokes from center of u-joint to end of yoke and report their findings. Be sure to include what year yours is. They should measure either 4.875 inches or 5.5 inches.

I don't think that is the reason for the different lengths.  From above...here is what I have been able to find out...

For 67 and 68 cars with the 396, different frame mounts for the engine were used which pulled the engine forward about 1/2 to 3/4 inch.  Also note the holes for the 396 cross member for use with a manual transmission had the transmission mounting holes about 3/4 inch forward.  The PG, TH350, 3 speed manual and 4 speed manual transmissions are all close to 27 5/8 or 27 3/4 inches long (including bellhousing length).  But the TH400 is slightly longer - around 28 1/4 inches.

67 and 68 Camaros used two different lengths.  49.96 inches for all applications except the 396 with manual trans which was 50.46 inches.

69 Camaros all used the same length, 49.56 inches.  This appears to be due to the frame mounts all being the same for the big blocks and small blocks.  Although I can't find anything listed, it seems the TH400 driveshaft should be slightly shorter.

So that is why I am looking for actual measurements, to confirm these numbers.

Something does not seem to be adding up here.

I think the 18N473159 partial VIN suggests the car was assembled in June.  The last VIN listed for June is quite a bit later and is 8N482588.

So how can a V0711MO engine stamp make sense?  The casting date - July 6 - does seem to match up with the stamp.
