Found one for sale that states matching #'s with a 327.

I have an original brochure from 69 that only lists 307, 350, and 396.

Anyone?

I thought the last year for the 327 was 69 when it was replaced with the 307.

I personally owned a 69 Camaro sport coupe with a 327 2 barrel 210 Horse back in 1973 and I assure you it was DEFINITELY the original engine.

307 replaced 327 in mid year 69, sometime around Jan 1 1969.

yup, the 327 was offered, but discontinued mid-year and replaced by the 307.

I wish someone could give a good reason for Chevy replacing the mighty 327 with the dog 307... Oh wait a minute, its the same company that is killing of the Camaro.
