Re: Trying to figure out what 67 I have
Merl: I would search for a nice 327 block to rebuild. There are still plenty of decent ones out there, and even if it's not the original 327, at least it is correct for the car. I also have a 327 coupe, originally Marina blue but with black deluxe interior (and it's an RS), so I found a good 327 block that only needed to be bored slightly to 331, and rather than a 3 speed manual or powerglide I'm going to put a 700R4 in it. A nice 327 would be a pleasant departure from all the 350s (no offense intended towards the 350) but they were great engines back then and still are now. With aluminium heads they are real performers.
Don't feel bad about the whole numbers matching thing, I fell for the same thing with my first '67 RS, it also had a 4-bolt main 350. You might want to save that block for something else.
Relax, all right? My dad's a TV repairman, got an ultimate set of tools. I can fix it.
