So now what, should I rebuild this thing or chunk it? I really wanted to rebuild the 327. Urghh[/QUOTE]

It looks like you have a good starting point, HEI, A/C , probably a 4 bolt block (some versions even had the machined webs).

Drop a 307 crank in it and some new pistons and you'll have you 327. You won't get the torque the 350 has (might be nice with the A/C functioning) but you'll have the higher rev'ing 327. Yep, the 307 is a cast crank, but balance the assy and use quality parts and you'll be fine, below 500 hp.

In the end, you'll always get more torque and HP from the 350, but there's something about the scream of a high rev'ing 327

As stated earlier, it is probably a decent engine to rebuild.

Check the casting number on the heads to see what they are. It does appear that maybe they transferred over the intake and the carb from the original engine, along with possibly the alternator. Check the numbers on those and post what you find.

Also you can add the 151 cam and some S/R Torquers and you'll have yourself a nice little L79 copy

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.
