Reason I say I am speechless is that this was over looked (piston to valve clearance) in the build process..

Since the '68's are so hard to document (unlike the 7's and 9's, no cowl tag coded info to go by), look at rear end numbers (passenger side axle tube, front side), 10 or 12 bolt, number of leaf springs, auto or std. trans, size and number of gas lines, presence or absence of right side tailpipe mounting bracket in the rear wheel opening. Barring original paperwork or documentation, there is no cut and dried (or exact) way to pinpoint what this car is, or was.

Who knows, maybe it's a Yenko, or a Nickey, or a Dana, or a Baldwin Motion ? That's the fun of it, finding and researching. Maybe it will be one of the really rare ones. In any case, good luck and good hunting. Let us know what you find out, or discover. Most all of us will be glad to try and sort it out.

Regards -

124378N381579 would be the vin to a Norwood built V8 68 sport coupe. The vin will only tell if it is V8 or 6cyl coupe or vert and the assembly plant. 
 I hope this helps & good luck..

   I have found a 1968 Camaro behind a house and the owner is ready to sell. I would like to know if anyone could give me info using these vin numbers. VIN 124376N3B1579   The number 6 may or may not be that number. could not get a good look at them. Will be going to look at it tomorrow with the person that found it. Would be nice if this turned out to be an original ss or something special.

Makes total sense. Easy thing to confuse BB pistons and reliefs - one version even uses two different part numbers, one for each side of the block (I found this during a search for the L78 proper piston part numbers). Betcha the builder never checked the valve to piston clearance during the build - you're probably lucky it didn't mangle it worse. Sounds like a cam change would be in the works -

Hate it happened, but glad it did it now rather than strand you somewhere, or grenade it -

Whelp after looking into it 5 of the exhaust pushrods were bent & one intake.  That's checking them on the work bench. I'll know 100% tomorrow when I get to work & roll them on the granite slab.  Further investigation has concluded that the exhaust valves are hitting the pistons.  Later in the week I'll do a leak down & go from there.  I'm speechless at this point.

In confirming that my '68 (build Nov '67) SS/RS would have had the D91 stripe, I came across this article on SuperChevy.com. I'm not sure where they got all their info nor if their measurements are 100% but it may help others trying to repaint their stripes.

I've never seen the L48 stripes (side AND deck / AIM pages 295/296) on a Camaro. Has anyone else?
