Yes, the car is in the DB from February of 2010. Can you send me a picture of the POP? I'd like to add it. The POP will also tell you what engine, transmission, axle, options, etc... originally came with the car, so post it and we can tell you if it was a 350 or not. The db says that it is, but the original engine is gone.

And yours is the only car in the db with that combination.

Thanks

 That's a title and doesn't tell much. POP is Protect-O-Plate that lists what the car came with.

The steel plate for the '69 is your Protect-O-Plate. You will have to de-code it like the trim tag. It will tell you exactly what your car was equipped with from the factory. On '68 model without P-O-P, paper work or original drive train you are just about out of any luck knowing what it actually was. Sure you have traces of possibilities as to what it might have been but that's all; possibilities.

Here it is. It's a little confusing to start with but just study it, read and re-read. The information is printed/stamped into the steel backward so it will be beneficial if you held it up to a mirror and wrote the information down on paper.

I knew I had seen your car somewhere. Here''s an old thread across the street about "patriot" camaro and your trim tag is in it.
