Are you sure about the engine assembly date?  That's over 8 months after the block was cast.   Shocked

That car is an early sept 68 built, with a late august engine assy date the L on the casting date would make more sense as a H. any chance the H was mistaken for an L?

this engine has been rained in for several months and is sitting in a old impala at a wrecking yard.
the wrecking yard wants $100.00 for it.i just dont know if its good anymore as for cylinder rust etc.
should i save this engine?

A hundred bucks is cheap if it's a complete engine, not cracked, standard bore and you believe you can clean it up with a slight bore.  On the other hand, FK engines (327cid/210hp) aren't rare or in high demand.  I guess it comes down to, do you need (or want) another project for the summer?  Now, if the engine assembly code had DZ at the end...    Grin
Either way, have fun and keep looking!

One man's junk another man's treasure.  Wish that beast was close enough to Lake Tahoe / Carson City / Minden, NV area whare I could run over and pick it up.  Same engine that is in my '69 RS; FK = 1969 Camaro 327 w/ Powerglide.  In my years of searching the junk yards, I've only found one '69 Camaro 327 engine - the one now in my car.  I wouldn't necessarily agree that you can run down the street and find one - you would probably find that it might be easier to find a DZ block because people hang on to them.
