I thought the suffix code "ME" was a 327 210 hp two barrel engine.  I have never seen one with a partial VIN before.  Was 68 different?

The engine is a 327cid/210hp (LF7) engine as stated in my original post. Kurt just copied and pasted the seller's description from the listing to show the engine was probably removed from it's original chassis. Yes, in '68 all Camaro engines got stamped with the partial VIN...

The seller is incorrect about the engine application, it's a 327cid/210hp (LF7) engine. The 4-barrel intake manifold was installed after the car left the factory.
