Question Chevy 327 Engine #

I have a 67 Camaro with a 327 that I am about to restore here in the next few weeks.

My question is where can I find the engine block number for this car? It is a 327 engine, and I have looked all over the engine to try to find the engine number to see if all numbers are matching on the car, but have had no luck.

any imput would be great!

What you are looking for is casting #'s and they are cast in not stamped. You will find these on all items that are cast including block, heads and intake etc. This will give you the date of manufacture, and you can decipher those by going to the knowledge base section (cheaper)or buy a book from someplace like Summit Racing. If the date of manufacture is on or just slightly before the body assembly date it is considered matching. try for casting #'s

Engine casting is driver side rea of block (Cast) at tranny matting line. But you really need the stamped suffix code on the right(passenger) side in front of the head. Together you can figure it out.

Just in front of the passenger side head there is a machined flat boss where you will find the stamped factory numbers which, when decoded, will tell you the year, mfg. plant, car, transmission, and other info on the engine in your Camaro.
