Im going to but 2 new front calipers, should they be single piston or double?

Jim,

The '69 Camaro came from the factory with single-piston disc brake calipers.  The 4-piston disc brake calipers were used only in '67 and '68.

update: Today I changed out the distribution block and bleed the system. Tested car right side still locks up. I switched lines same ting. I ran new lines, Same thing, right side still locks up? The only thing I can see is the right side has a GM  stamped caliper single piston and the left side has no markings , single piston. Maybe the previous owner bought a mismatched set? Im going to but 2 new front calipers, should they be single piston or double? It is the only thing I have not changed. Any ideas or suggestions? Tkx JIm F

Well then, there you go!

327's are GREAT engines! Way unappreciated in my opinion. I've had several 55-57 Chevy's and a few other cars with 327's and they ran very strong. If the internals are good, I'd stay with the 327, but that's just me.

Has an 11C Van Nuys body tag but ad lists a Norwood VIN N521236. Body tag looks undisturbed so the VIN tag and stampings need to be verified.

MC was brand new last yr and was exactly the same as the one that was on and yes it matches factory. I just now changed out the distribution block and will hopefully bleed today.  Tkx jim

Hey Ed, it's actually a short block.  Complete on the inside.  Crank, Rods, pistons etc...  if it's a 327 should I keep and use the internals or source Something else out?! I found some useful information here.

Outstanding car Jim and some great results from it being judged. I have a low mile Rally Green Z/28 that raced Super Stock from 71 onward and is now being restored back to street trim after 45 years off the road. I never thought I'd become envious with green, but it's a color that has definitely grown on me now. That's a great car that you scored...Congrats once again!
