Re: newbie

Welcome.....

I think you mean a "Numbers correct" block....which would be, correct casting and possibly even correctly dated.....(and yes it is possible to find)

Because "Numbers Matching" around this place means "Born with" from the factory w/partial VIN stamped on block (if applicable)....

Would love to see some pics of your ride....post a few when you get a chance.

This link will tell you how to post pics:
http://www.67rs-ss.com/pictures/pictures.html

This link will bring you to Camaro Research Group....where you can find out anything & everything about 1st gen Camaro's...and will give you clues to identifying a real SS:
http://www.camaros.org/diffs69.shtml

The VIN will only tell you if It was a 6 or 8 cyl. from the factory...not the exact engine....

Also, be sure to use the "search function" on the toolbar above to search the archives....as you can find many answers to questions that have been discussed before.
