Unlikely. transplants used crate motors, which would carry a CE code, and not a Corvette code (I assume when you said you ran the numbers, you meant checking the engine code. If it came from a Corvette, it would also carry the Corvette sequence number. In 69, it became so easy to use the COPO system, that not too many dealers continued to transplant, although there must be a few out there.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>
Thanks for the response and info. I was reading somewhere that back in the late 60's, GM had an awesome warranty on the powertrain. And that when these guys would take their Camaros out to the track and blow up the motor, that GM would replace the motor under warranty. Would they replace with the same size motor or with whatever they had or could someone request what size motor they wanted? This 427 is just puzzling me because the dates are exact to what the car is. Here are the numbers I got off the motor: TO130LM ; 19S715307 this # is on the deck pad. Thanks again!
