67 Stamp Pad question

Hey Guys,

New on the site and appreciate any feedback one can give on my Stamp Pad question and the 67 camaro I'm looking at. I know the camaro group is pretty tight and has probably seen the car I'm looking at once or twice over the years for sale. Maybe??

The build date is 10B or Oct, 1966 / The date code on the block is H66

Does anyone know anything about the L30/M20 67 Camaro Convertibles? He is claining this is one of these cars. Not many were produced

Theonly number that does not align is the trans. Its a correct cast number but for a 1969.

Why does the stamp pad have only the engine number and not the vin #?

Has annyone ever seen the engine number stamped on an angle?

Does anyone know anything about this car that is for sale? Here is the link

I would apprecaite any feedback that you can offer as I know there are a lot of guys on this site with indepth knowledge.

THnaks, Jim

Re: 67 Stamp Pad question

VIN stamping on the engine was not mandated until 1968. Earlier cars were only stamped in certain cases (high horsepower versions, etc). You should not expect a VIN stamp on the engine pad of a 67 327. The 350's and BB's got em that year though.

Re: 67 Stamp Pad question

Thanks for your reply Fossil_Fuel,

Ok, so they did not have vin#s on the stamp pad for the 67 low horse motors.

WHat about the placement of the stamp on the pad and the stmp being on this funny angle? I've not seen one in this area & on the angle.

The date code matches perfect & the casting number is correct as well as the carb, intake, heads ans exhaust manifolds.

I'm just not crazy about the stamp!

Any other way to tell? This was a LA built car.

Re: 67 Stamp Pad question

I dont see a problem with placement or angle it just that it is pretty hard to verify with all the paint on it. The factory did not paint the pad back in the day.

Hey Jonesy,

Thanks for the feedback!

I will be looking at the car tomorrow and will be removing the paint. Click on the link and tell me what you think about the car itself. It has had a full frame off professional restoration. Nice car all other numbers fall in place it was just that I felt the angle and placement was funny. I hear the LA built cars were much different than the midwest.

Re: 67 Stamp Pad question

I know nothing of this number stuff, but I'm wondering why someone would perform a rotisserie restoration on a car with "never any rust."

One foot in the grave, the other on a banana peel. . .

Re: 67 Stamp Pad question

Greenmanstunnel,

I can answer that question being that I purchased a 1967 400 tri-power Corvette Roadster with only 21,100 original miles and was a very complete nice survivor vette with all owner history and all original paper work. After purchasing the car we did a full off the frame restoration to bring her back to life and to have her in showroom condition.

THis 67 camaro was a california car for most of its life. Thanks for the feedback!
