1967 396 Camaro LOS built
« on: May 28, 2011, 10:11:04 PM »
I recently purchased an original 396 67 camaro RS SS.  Los Built

I have the motor and tranny out for a rebuild.

Have you guys ever seen a motor where there partial vin on the engine pad is reversed? The partial vin on the transmssion is also reversed.

The vins appear to me to be backwards.

Is this possible or has the motor and engine been restamped??

Thanks

If you are meaning the partial VIN is upside down and facing toward the head, there is nothing bogus about that. It happened on many LOS cars. I've also seen partial VINs on LOS cars where they reversed the L and the 7, meaning instead of 7L123456 (for example), it would read L7123456. Numerous examples of that also exist.

Thanks John,

Both engine and transmission is L7XXXXX and the engine pad is unside down looking like XXXXXX7L.

Was they drunk when they stamped them?

Thanks for information I had never seen that before.

Its going to be one cool convertible when done
