I am looking for an L78 (375hp/396) engine for my 1970 chevelle, cast in aug or early sept 69, would like to get assembly date early to mid oct CTY (375hp auto) I know not asking for "too much" but hey you never know what people may have. Would like to get complete but I am interested in components related to this engine also. Here are some of the numbers I am looking for.
Casting #'s: block 3969854, heads 3964291 (or L89 3946074)intake 3963569, carb list 4492, exhaust manifolds lh/3909879 rh/3916178, water pump 3931065, dist. 1112000, alt. 1100837, car was built 3rd week Oct. dates must be prior to the first week of October.

Any help in locating this or these parts would be appreciated.
Thank you in advance.....sg

Well those part#'s sure do sound familiar.I have those in my engine compartment.

I have a friend with that short block dated in February 1970.It is from a 1970 L-78 Nova made at Willow Run plant.
I will ask if it is for sale.
