I am new here and thus far am very impressed with the site. I have already learned so much. I have some experience with older Corvettes but am new to the Camaro world.
I recently purchases a 67 rs. I was informed it was numbers matching though some of that could not be verified at the time of purchase so I am going through all that I can to either confirm or deny. I like the car anyway, so if it turns out that it is not I will survive.
First off, the block was decked so of course build and application/VIN stamping(s) are gone. I have recruited an employee of the crime lab and in two weeks we are going to acid etch the block pad to see if we can pull up the stampings. If so, I will of course document it either way.
I do know the car was originally a V8. It does have the 4BBL so I am leaning towards the 275 HP, 327.
Trim Tag Build Date:11B
Head casting:3890462, date K16 (Left side). Both have the "double humps"
Engine Block casting:3892657, date H66
Intake Casting:3905393, date J46
As near as I can determine the dates all jive with each other but any input would be appreciated.
