327
 
I will ask my club on this question. We have 10 first gens in our club. Im not possiitive about it being out still in 69 but I will ask for you. Can you get the trim tag info for me it's on the driver side firewall.

BTW Welcome to the site. :wave: :chevy:

Welcome :D

327 first gen Camaros aren't really rare persay. They were the base V8 model for those cars. In 1969, RPO was LF7 I believe, a 210 HP 327 V8.

Not really sure about the 327 emblems.

If I remember correctly, the 327 was only for part of the 69 model year then the 307 came on the scene.

thanks for the replies to my fathers '69 camaro engine question. this car was offered to me in 1985 but by that time it was totally rusted. the car had never been garaged and long island winters had ruined the body but the car had less than 50,000 miles. very quick car even with a 2bbl carb.... thanks again.
