i dont really understand this post, i get the first part but not the second, and i only chimed in with saying that you could get the 350sbc as a replacement engine as early as 64', now tell me how many of you knew that. so yes based on the previous post i felt that information was relivent

although it was not relivent to the OP's post but if you reread the OP's post there is no question asked just a statement made

You could not get the 350 as a replacement engine before 1967, the year it was introduced, pretty hard to get a replacement engine that doesn't even exist yet.

Yes, the 350 came out first in the 67 Camaro to coincide with the introduction of the brand new Camaro, and only in the Camaro in 67- 295 hp rating was the only available 350 at that time, and not in any other car or truck from Chevrolet.

Reminds me of...

"Now place the ring on his hand. A ring is like a circle, it goes on forever. It's not like a triangle, triangle have corners. It's like a circle."

my87z.......obviously you have no sense of humor, nor do you know much about Chevrolet history. As ericnova72 said....the 350 was NEVER in any factory Chevy until 1967.....period!!! And think about this for a moment, If it was then why were all the high perf. small block Chevy's, even the 375 hp Corvette powered by 327's........sorry you lose pal or back it up with FACTS.

for one i never said that you could get a chevrolet car from the FACTORY with a 350 before 1967, i said that i read that you could get a REPLACEMENT engine that was a 350 as early as 1964. and yes i know that the first PRODUCTION car from the factory with a 350 was the 67' camaro. if you reread my origianal post you will see that i clearly stated that. a few months ago i did a 15 page paper for a college coarse that i took and my topic was the history and evolution of the small block chevy. i read articles from many paper sources and electronic sources to do this paper, after all it was 15 flippin' pages not including cover and work cited. i did not include what i read about being able to get a replacment engine that happened to be a 350 as early as 64' in the paper, and i can't quite remember which source i read it from but i did read it. i know that you can't believe everything you read but i didn't not read articles from any source that i would not have believed to be credible. so take that how you want to.

oh and dont make statements like "nor do you know much about chevrolet history" just because you believe something to be false. cause many on here will tell you that i am a rather knowlegeable person when it comes to engines and cars

i dont wish to get into a P'sn match here but what i read was that when the 396 came out in 65' (and remember that just because it is a 65' car doesn't mean that people weren't driving them in the late summer and fall of 64') in the corvette and chevelle and when some people blew these engines due do their own fault and had to pay for a replacement engine but couldn't afford the replacement 396 or the L-79 version 327 that dealerships also offered the newly developed not in production yet 350sbc as it was cheaper than the 396 and L-79 327.

i wish that i could remember which book i read this out of not to nessisarily prove you guys wrong but to reread it and find out where they got their informantion. i will say that i had to read a lot of articles about the SBC and only one mentioned this and that is why i didn't put it in my paper. so i guess for lack of multiple sources i will have to bow out of this argument until i'm lucky enough to find more information, if i do find more information.

Just an observation:

There are damned few "absolutes"when it comes to automobiles.

There ain't ONE member here who hasn't misspoken, erred or otherwise been wrong. Tread lightly- the next f-up may be yours!

i agree, and if the information i read (from a source that i beleived to be credible) was wrong then i am wrong of coarse and i would appoligise for passing false information, i do not claim to have personaly expericanced seeing a 350 in 1964 as my father at that time was only 16 yrs old and i was born almost a couple of decades later. i only claim this as something that i have read while gathering information to do a college paper. but at the same time unless you happen to be one of those people that did do as i mentioned in my above post, or that you have specifficly read that no they did not offer it in late 64' as a replacement for the 396, or worked for GM in 64' then how would you know 100% either
