Just a quick question, I did a search and didn't find anything, maybe I searched wrong.

In '66 what engine options were available. I know the 283 and 396 were common, but was the 327 also available in '66?

I am looking at a '66 Chevelle with a 327 and the guy says it was a option for 1966. I am not sure and just want to know.

My buddy has a 66 malibu that orignally came with a 327. I don`t know about 66`s to much but I`m pretty sure there were 6 cylinders available, 283,327 and the SS 396.

According to Dales site (www.chevellestuff.com) the 327 was available in 66 only as a 4-bbl w/275 HP. There were also the 194 & 230 CID 6-cylinder motors, the 283 and 396 V-8's.
