1. It's an early build date camaro with a 327 how rare is that? I know they were just using up the engines from 68 and as I said this owner knows the original owner.
As of December '05, the following was the latest update that the CRG had on the 327 to 307 (LF7 to L14) engine transition during the 1969 model year. I am very interested in that issue and asked for their input."......we have on the LF7/L14 transition. However, normally the factory does establish at least a soft cut-off date (date of last order of parts for anticipated use by a given date), if not a hard one (with excess parts being moved to spares). This doesn't mean that an isolated example of either type couldn't have escaped either slightly before or after that date, but it does create a normative date, and exceptions would have to be well documented to be accepted. The transition process for something like this would normally occur within a day. We (CRG) have documented L14s from 01A, 01B, 01C. In contrast, the last documented LF7 we have is 12C. A couple of undocumented LF7s from 12D. Nothing substantive after that."
Personally, I've seen more 307's than 327's in 1969 Camaros, but they are getting more scarce. A lot of these cars are being cloned into something else. Kind of like how rare is a 6 cyl 1969 Camaro? See even less of them. As someone else put it, value is what you put on it, not necessarily what the market price is, unless of course it is a business to you instead of a hobby.
