Cool

Boodlefoof,
Thanks for info.
Thought I should post as new topic in case you didn't go back to first one.
thanks boodlefoof (what is a 'boodlefoof' anyway?!)
next set of questions..
How can you verify on the 67 & 68's which of the 327 engines was made for each car (LF7 or L30)?
Same for the 396 (L34?, L78)?
How do you number match them?
How rare is the SS? Anyone know any ratios of number of SS/ to total cars built?

don't know about the big block identification other than pulling engine numbers, but as a quick spotting of the small blocks... the 327/210 horse engine has a two barrell carb. The 327/275 horse engine has a 4 barrell.

Thanks again,
is it safe to say that all SS's have the emblem on the front grille?

boodlefoof is a nickname that I have been stuck with since I was a baby... and I have just accepted it. It pertains to the sound made when you blow on a baby's stomach to tickle the baby.

I would not trust the grille emblem to tell you wether or not a car is a true SS. There are tons of base model cars that people have put emblems on. Do a search (link in the top right hand corner of the forum screen) for info about "how to tell true SS" or something to that effect. You can find lots of useful info.
