looking for original car missing 67 SS Chevelle 396 block

Hello everyone,

I am looking for a needle in a haystack, I am looking for the 67 SS Chevelle with a Vehicle vin ending in 120445.
I have the original 396 block and heads, the block is a standard bore and has the stampings on it for this car. This block was also available for a 67 Camaro but before I offer it to someone restoring a 67 Camaro I want to try and find the original home for it.

I know this is a long shot but I wanted to try, I was going to build ot for my 68 SS Camaro but felt it should go to its proper home if possible.

I am having trouble uploading the picture of the vin

Here is the information I was able to get off the block.

Nice of you to post this.
I am looking for the original engine to my Fremont 67 SS, and when I saw this I scrambled for my phone to check the screen shot of my VIN.

Alas, I need 7Z115307.
Time to bump up my thread.

67 Chevelle SS:
original paint, M20, & 3:31 posi.
Unrestored, but dreaming of doing so

What's the normal lead time between the engine build and recipient car build in 1967? I know on '67 L78's it ran around 3 to 4 weeks.
