$12500 - HA! It'll be around for a long long time at that price..
Or does the rest of the matching drivetrain, VIN tag, and Protecto Plate come with it as a 'do one up yourself package'?

And at that price, it better have the original alternator, carburetor, distributor, intake, etc. included!

I think there might be a bit of 'blue sky' in the pricing of what is basically a short block.  But maybe the owner of the car this came from might think otherwise.

Well, in that case it may never sell. There is no record of any 1968 Camaro LOS VIN that high. Not even close. Interesting, huh?

Yes. That is where I cut and pasted it from. I don't understand your point?

Perhaps my point was not clear. The last VIN on record from LOS is: 8L349164

VIN 8L382665 was never produced (unless there was some very odd anomoly). The car does not exist, therefore there is no owner of the car that would be willing to pay such an inflated price.

Now I see what you're saying, you didn't use the quote function above.  ;)

It probably is a stamping error. Happens alot when you're building 560 cars a day!  :)

Actually, I've seen very few stamping errors over the years.
Yes, I bet this was 124378L332665. Engine stamp looks good, IMO.

The seller is shooting for the moon. I heard that it was bought at an estate sale for $800.

That doesn't make any sense, because it is 124378L382665.

Do you mean 124378L332665, as suggested by X66 714?
