I bought a 1968 Camaro Convertible Vin #124678N460801 and the only numbers I can find on the engine are 43 GM  14816379  and V0709800.  I want to know all that I can about the car and if the engine is the original one from the car (matching numbers?).  I also want to know what engine it is (350 small block? HP? Etc.)  If anyone has any of this information or have any suggestions on how I can find it myself I would be much obliged. 

Thank you in advance for any help anyone can give me in this matter.

I think you'll find that the block casting number is 14316379 (not 14816379); that block was used in trucks from '69-'85, and in various passenger cars from '78-'81. Re-check the pad stamp to see if it's really V0709800 - the last three digits should be letters, not numbers. The block should also have a raised cast-in date code on the rear flange about six inches toward the passenger side from the distributor. In any event, it's a 350 block, but is not original to the car.
