1969 JH code 396 375 HP Camaro L78 Engine 9N548544
« on: April 16, 2012, 01:55:28 AM »
Hello, I just bought a 69 Camaro out of west Texas and it came with a JH code 396 375 HP Camaro L78 engine that does not match my car.  The VIN numbers end in 548544.  If anyone has this 1969 Camaro please contact me by email at jonesdoug@kc.rr.com or call 816-805-5470.  I have this engine listed for sale on www.camaros.net for $5000.  I posted it high so that it wouldn't sell until I had a chance to potentially find a car that this belongs to.

Thanks,

Doug

That's an easy one Biscuit, just call Tim @ 270-799-8388 and ask him who he sold the car to.

If I owned either one of these items I'd be on the phone right now. Maybe somebody that's in the know will get these two together.

I just checked Ebay.  The buyer of that Camaro was "bonneville52"...  http://myworld.ebay.com/bonneville52

Please pass the butter!

You should be able to send bonneville52 a message thru ebay.  IMO a real 375HP SS is worth more  than a COPO clone :)
