Oh, there is a picture of the vin tag posted now. It wasn't there last time I looked. Sorry.

I see, the DMV isn't perfect, they make mistakes too.

The L79 was rated 350hp in 65 but dropped to 325hp from 66 to 68 so they would not compete (hp-wise) with the 396. Only talking Chevelles here, not the other Chevrolet lines.

Re: 1967 SS matching numbers w/283 - oh boy

Well.. not to beat a horse that doesn't matter.. but I believe the Chevelle in 1966 was not even part of the L-79 line up.. so we are just talking about other Chevrolets in 66 when we talk about hp drop of the L-79.

But alas, that is not a topic for this Post..

This man's car is apparently what it is... we can brow beat him or the car to death.. but all it causes is bad feelings for all involved... we are all guilty, myself included of jumping the gun when it comes to automatically thinking a seller is up to no good... but when a seller is Stand Up enough to come here and discuss it openly even with getting beat up a bit.. that goes a long way in my book for his character.. I can't speak to the car and what it may be or not be..but lets all take a deep breath.

My turn... If a 283 car could have slipped through with a 138 Vin then I would have to say it's possible that a Vin tag could have gotten round rivets and a 72 SS could have gotten a 307!

Re: 1967 SS matching numbers w/283 - oh boy

Actually, it's my bad. The L79 was still rated at 350hp in 66 and released in March of 1966. Multiple reference sources such as Colvin's "...by the numbers", Chevrolet's Parts & Accessories catalog and the 1966 AIM all show L79 items for 1966, both unique to Chevelle and in combination with other Chevrolet models in 1966 such as engine suffix codes, carburetors, distributors, heads, block, camshaft, alternator braces, intake and exhaust manifolds.

Re: 1967 SS matching numbers w/283 - oh boy

Auction looks straight and fair to me too. Around here, that buy it now price is very reasonable too. Looks like a nice car sold by someone that has taken some heat like Mike said and stood up for himself and gave a reasonable explaination.

True - and how it got will never be confirmed so that's that

we are all guilty, myself included of jumping the gun when it comes to automatically thinking a seller is up to no good...

Yeah I guess you get a little gun shy from all the people out there trying to pull a fast one that you think everyone is.

but when a seller is Stand Up enough to come here and discuss it openly even with getting beat up a bit.. that goes a long way in my book for his character.. I can't speak to the car and what it may be or not be..but lets all take a deep breath.

Re: 1967 SS matching numbers w/283 - oh boy

One last comment and I'm am done. when you have a model specific ie:SS396 designated by a VIN, we all have no way to know for sure, except the little old lady from Pasadena who only drove it to church, but I equate this to having an Impala VIN on your Corvette. Our job analyzer in the office is a retired GM Leeds employee, and not just a nut and bolt guy on the line either.

But his take on it is it would be a pretty cold day in Hades before a VIN that specifically ID's a model got put on the wrong car. He said trim tags yes, VIN's no. Everyone can speculate how and why but I don't buy it came from the factory that way.

One last thing from me also. There are many weird things in the world that happen. This was one of them and if you don't want to believe it then don't buy it. Any way you look at it this is an extremely clean 1967 Chevelle Malibu with the original 283/PG and still sporting the original paint. Maybe the original owner (an 89 year old lady) turned her SS into a malibu so all of the people asking her to buy her car would leave her alone. LOL

You know I've thought about this a lot. Maybe the driver door got hit and it was changed and the VIN tag changed with it. Maybe the little old lady forgot about it or didn't know . Maybe it was when her daughter had the car and was driving it. I don't have the answer but coming from the factory like that has to be the lowest percentage possibility, but still possible.

Rolling Quarters...... Be a shame to see it leave the state. Poor Florida car with all that original paint. Old cars are like old people the Florida sun helps with all the little aches and pains.

Good theory, but the VIN tag is rivited to the door jamb, not the door. And he states that it has the original paint on it as well. I wanna know about the truck for sale... "The floors & truck are solid with no holes "

Authentication and pre-purchase inspection service still available. PM me for more information.
