The sellers says its standard bore, it has no cracks and he guarantees it... IMO, $600 is a good price...

That's what I was getting at. It could've possibly been used in a late '69 Camaro as well, since the '69 model year Camaro was extended into early '70 calendar year. Or a '70 Camaro.Novas and Camaros still used the L78 later than Chevelles in 1970. Just because it was cancelled in the Chevelle doesn't mean it was cancelled in Novas and Camaros.
Hey Von.That's what I was getting at. It could've possibly been used in a late '69 Camaro as well, since the '69 model year Camaro was extended into early '70 calendar year. Or a '70 Camaro.
Dave, the 2 sites that I use for engine codes both show the CKQ code for 1970 Chevelles and Novas. See the links below.
Good point Rick. Didn't think of that.I think there is also the possibility that this block was originally a complete engine bought OTC from Chevy in late `70- early `71 and came with the CKQ code as an assembled engine.
I've seen several original stamping CRR and CRV LS6 blocks that were later than the production time frame of 1970.
