Big block / small block
« on: September 11, 2013, 08:36:30 PM »
Does this hold water? I have never heard this.
It's a 1967 early RS/SS that has a 350 V8 tag but VIN says has 396/375HP. In early 1966 they made 1630 of these and stamped them 350 V8. This is one of them.
They said value from 40,000-50,000 way sits since restored to factory and rotisseried

Unless I missed something the vin only reflects 8 or 6. The trim might but say 4k but?

Sounds like BS for a buck, looking for a sucker to pay big bucks for a story line on a car never built by GM.

Videte emptor!

Ask the seller for documemtation and/or where he gained that information... I'd love to know how he justifies that one...
I've never met a seller of a "rare" car that wasn't an "expert"....

There's nothing in the VIN that says anything about the engine except whether it's a six or a V-8. The owner is in la-la land somewhere.

I've never heard anything like that, and can't see how the owner would know a story like that.   It sounds like nonsense to me

The only twist to this that would make any sense is that if he was referring to the trim tag
showing a 396, but had a 350 that matched the vin tag. But if that was case with 1630 it would be common knowledge
