She's a '67 Camaro with the original, never been rebuilt 327. It ran fairly well, but had 1 dead cylinder and a ton of play in the timing chain. Time for a rebuild!

I had one with a 302... That motor would run up to over 10 grand stock... It loved high rpms. Most people have never heard of a 302 Chevy.

that is awesome!
Isn't a 327 a 350 w/a 302 crank? shorter stroke w/larger cylinder. maybe I'm thinking of something else. I like the rs w/the headlight covers.
Mecum Auctions is going to be in Houston next weekend. I'd love to go w/a wad of cash!

u just gonna drop a 350 in there?

no Alan, I'm going to restore the 327. Eventually I'd like to do an LS conversion and a complete modern chassis. I haven't decided if this one will get all those mods. It is a matching # all original sheet metal car. The only thing ever done to it was new seat covers. It still has the original paint. I bought it from the second owner. He only sold it because he found a '67 RS/SS from the original owner. He didn't have room for both.

I love the late 60's Muscle. Check out my 1968 Firebird (Yes - its a mullet and white reebox). We did a frame up restoration in High School.

327 with some afr heads pushing over 500 hp will make for some fun. Here is my old 67 SS with my then son and on the cover, I now have a 71 with a LT1 vette drive train for my sons first car planning on selling to find another 67 rs/ss

I decided to pull the engine and trans for a complete overhaul. I am keeping everything stock. Most of my friends want me to put a bigger cam in it and go with the 4 barrel, but I like her just the way she is.
A buddy of mine owns an MG/Jag restoration shop. He is letting me use his parts washer and media blaster. I gotta get me one of those!

looking good. i like your friends would prolly change a few things but to each his own. when do you plan on dumping the motor back in?

ord27 05-13-2012 6:43 AM

thanks Alan. I did upgrade to the HEI distributor and the upgraded valve guides. I am now waiting on a back ordered part for the transmission rebuild. I can hopefully drop it back in next weekend. If not, it will certainly be at some point before June!
