Different stroke (longer stroke) 454's  ,same  bore. Point being different block 396 (402's) vs 427's/454's. Rotating assemblies non-interchangeable between the two.

Different blocks all together. 427 is a de stroked 454 " the 302's of big blocks"  based on stock crank casting #s.

Upside down H12 and right side up H17 on pass door. BTY car's 04D Norwood built. H172 on driver's. Doors are un-molested in any way. (except for door speakers---ugg !)

Took pics of the doors today, 1# on driver's , 2#s on pass. Will post tomorrow. Fenders are primed, not going to sand for number ( guy painting my car would blow a gasket if I did) Plus he's shooting  as he's stripping( showing no filler) Knows what to look for ,might already have them.

Actually yes ,don't know the exact web address but there are USAFS sites to help track down old military buddies via name. I think there is a charge like ancestry .com ,but minimal ,got to shop. Air Force was easy ,I was in AMMO in the 80's, typed in search which took me right to a "role call" site for USAF . An old buddy from Bitburg found me after 911 (that night).He was living in New York at the time and witnessing the carnage. He knew I was a FF ( in Ohio) and guess he just wanted to talk. Haven't spoke since but always glad we did.

*1 owner told me he ordered Z while he was over sea's, pick up point was in Michigan ,drove back to Ohio where it has been ever since.

Gotta tell you, I like it. Up to you to check for mud ,mechanical  problems etc. .Looks  like he has a nice collection in a clean environment. Personally I love the clean old school look with the few upgrades: serpentine drive, billet alt bracket ,MSD, valve covers .Where's it at ?  Just kidding, mines on the lift and kids in college! Price wise check what's out there on RacingJunk. Check the #s on the block and heads to make sure it's a 427 and not a somewhat low dollar crate 454. If all is true I think price wise it's in the ballpark. How ever as was said, check all numbers out, 12 bolt ,trans---it's all on the site. Buyer beware.

Thanks again, didn't have a chance to get those door pics, will get to it this week.
671  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1967 camaro with 427 on: September 22, 2013, 02:43:58 PM
Adding, I do know of a car where the 427 was installed, instead of the 396 .at the dealer. His father worked there and he was able to have it delivered that way. No special tags or badges.

Depends on the asking price, but who wouldn't want to own a clean 67 with a 427 ? add M22 + 4:88's mmm...
Original or not .

Check the Yenko registry, pretty sure they have them all numbered and accounted per vin. Good place to start.

Mines apart right now so I can check the doors for ( 68) difference ?  I do have a question. While it's apart I'm documenting all the numbers ,taking pics and sending copies to Ed B. Concerning the sheet metal: are all panels/pieces stamped ? Front clip etc...? It's all OE and wonderful shape so somewhere I want it noted. I know doors ,hood---can't find it on fenders ,valiance, etc. My body man is also shooting pics and leaving the undersides untouched. Lots of inspection markings. Anyway I'll get those pics of the doors posted in the near future--Saturday.
