1978 Camaro Z-28 Engine Identification

Hi Guys,

I screwed up this post the other day so I am re-doing it. Thanks for understanding.

I am In the process of buying a 1978 Z-28 4-speed car in fair condition(it runs and drives and looks good from 25 feet, but still needs work). It is a loaded car t-tops, A/C, etc. I don't think the current owner knows if it's the original engine or not. The pre-fix on the engine is CRT. I thought it should have been CHR or CHT. What do you guys think?

Where can I go to identify this engine. We have agreed to $1,500.00. What do you guys think of the price. I realized it's not 60's muscle buy I am speculating a little and parts are still plentiful. Even if it's not the original engine do you think it's worth the $1,500.00. Thanks for your help.

THE OWNER JUST CALLED ME WITH THE NUMBERS AND HERE THEY ARE T0114CRX. THANKS

Dave

I have heard that this site is good also. Now that you have listed the complete serial # maybe someone can help you out better. I'm a mopar guy. Good Luck sounds like a good price to me.

I wouldn't be too concerned with it being the original engine, although it would be nice for conversation. Even in unmolested all original low miles condition the car isn't worth more than 15000. The price sounds right for a car which is a lot of fun too drive. I have had several of that body style and have always liked them. The nice thing about their lack of big buck collector stastus is you can build a kick a55 car and not be frowned upon for messing up a classic. Buy it and have fun.

Stamp code CRX was used on a 1975 350, 155 horse 4bbl A&B bodies---Also used in 75 for a 350, 145 horse 2bbl F&X bodies. Last but not least, it was used in 1978-- 145 horse 305 2bbl G body. You will need to get the casting number off the rear of the block-driver side, to tell if its a 350 or 305.
