Thanks for all the help lately…I got a couple more for you.
#1 How hard is it to swap a car from an automatic to a 4 speed car. I have an opportunity to buy a 1967 396 and 4 speed transmission from a camaro and am thinking about putting it in my automatic car?
#2 I found a guy that has a rebuilt 427 out of a 1969 Vette the numbers are showing it as a late 1968 engine. I understand that “this is the engine to have” is that correct? i am told this is the engine they use to make a car a Yenko?
This is the e-mail the guy sent to me - THE PRODUTION DATE IS J 08,JULY OF 1968 SO IT IS AN EARLY 1969 ENGINE,
THIS IS THE OTHER NUMBER ON THE BLOCK ? 3963512 NOT REALLY SURE ABOUT THE VIN # BY THE OIL; FILTER?IF YOU SEND A FAX # I CAN FAX THE SPEC SHEET FROM THE MACHINE SHOP WERE IT WAS RE-BUILT.WHEN THE BLOCK WAS PLANED THE V.I.N. #S WERE PLANED OFF.I HAVE GIVEN YOU ALL THE INFORMATION TO BE ABLE TO VERIFY THAT THIS IS A TRUE `69 427/390 HSP ENGINE .THANKS BOB
It has the original Oval heads and I can buy it for $3500
