Original 396 engine
« on: June 19, 2011, 09:13:59 PM »
Hi there,

I  decided to come to america and try and locate the original engine to my 68 camaro. Im only here for a coupe of weeks so any suggestions would be appreciated. I have searched the 68 orphans section.

Its a needle in a hay stack.excercise but I have to try.

The background. The engine was sold to a fella in the fort worth/mid cities texas area mid 75. I have no contact details of who the engine was sold to and the original owner of my.68 has no information to offer up.

VIN 8N408678

Thank you

Edit;  I took the assembly date out of your post.  Your just asking for a scammer to stamp you an engine with the correct info by posting all the info.  If someone has it make them provide the assembly dates and codes to prove it.  Don't post all the info, just the VIN.
