The guy working on my engine is a second generation and has seen many a 327. I will take his word over you any day.

Re: 1965 1/2 C10 Pickup

If it's what you say--screw all the nay Sayer experts. I am from that time (1949) and as far as keeping all the info, no way. Never kept the car/tk more than a year or 2. Restore it and have fun now. Good luck.
just some old info
151 cam was a hyd 327 350 hp
346 was the 327 365/375 and 302 z28 cam solid
097 was 283-270hp up and 327 340hp solid

Another thing that's odd to me is the "1/2"... I thought that was only a Ford thing to have half year models.

According to the GM facts, roller cam engines didn't come out until 1996 when the vortecs came out.

Good luck with the restore... it's a dam nice truck whatever you want to call it.
You will love the fact that i currently drive a 1999 Silverado purchased in 1999 and registered in 1999 and is a 2000.
Also had a 1970 El Camino with a 396 (402) Cowl Induction, Muncie 4 speed and Posi. See Pics-Taken in 2000 when i sold it. All original except the wheels. Original paint. Can't wait to see how i get beat up on this.

Re: 1965 1/2 C10 Pickup

Hopefully you find an answer.
Either way, it's cool you bought it new and have had it for over 50 years.

No , not kidding at all . I have papers on many of my 40 trucks. Was a simple request to see pictures of the engine and stamp along with any other document. You certainly are capable of posting pictures not relavent to your claim . Honestly, people here are interested in helping but that's a two way street.

Re: 1965 1/2 C10 Pickup

Compared to most of you here...I'm a fairly new guy. What I loved about this site from the start was the level of respect that most everyone always showed one another. It's not like the usual car sites. Some of you don't believe what the original post'r has stated...which is fine. You don't have to believe him. You could simply state your opinion, in a respectable manor, like Brad54 did, and move on. The beating of the dead horse theme is kind of annoying to me. I know some are just very addimant in what you believe/know is right/wrong. Can we keep the level of respect where it should be? Sorry, I just think some of the comments being made are immature and uncalled for. My 2 cents...

And he edited his post yesterday to say that TJ , it certainly was not in the original post. When you make claims like these and ask for opinions you will get replies like whats been posted. Im not liking the way this is going either but Im not the author of the thread leading it this way.

One more comment on the L79 , you'll never find one backed by an automatic transmission. The combination of the cam etc just will not work with an automatic. I think a very reasonable answer is here when we find out more about the engine , possibly dealer installed which would make this not factory. Salty , do you remember the name of the Dealer you bought it from ?

Re: 1965 1/2 C10 Pickup

Sorry, I don't buy it. L79 was a high performance option designated for special cars and was a heavy premium over any other 327. Also you would have known 50 years ago that you had something special because it would have roasted the tires at will. But thats my opinion, also 66 would have had a glovebox SPID.

Re: 1965 1/2 C10 Pickup

I will call this.

Salty is a pathological liar

I will back that up by stating I will be happy to drive to San Rafael and tell him that to his face and be more then happy to take any and all pictures of this truck and it's original engine block when it comes back from out of state.


There is a difference to being misinformed, this is not the case. Salty is just telling tall tales and for some reason can not believe he is being challenged. This forum is filled with the most knowledgeable base on these trucks on this planet. We have people that know more about these trucks then the factory.

Re: 1965 1/2 C10 Pickup

Over the years, I've learned that there is a significant amount of misinformation in the old car/truck hobby that sometimes can be taken as gospel by less experienced guys.
All's I'm sayin'.
