I wonder why they would pull a 283 V/8 and replace it with a six cylinder when the car was virtually brand new? They must have changed the rad over, too, because the 283 would have had a spacer. It would be good to see the VIN on this car to determine if it really was a V/8 in 1967.

I have parted out a 67 283 car and had no spacer just a shroud....
I though 66 & 67 did not use the spacer?
I thought they have the wider mounting holes on the core support to mount radiator directly to core support....
I don't know so I am asking

My "too good to be true" senses are tingling.....

As has been said to far away and no room or would look a bit further into it.

Looks clean.

These cars are never close for me too have a look-see.
Mine was in California and I bought it sight unseen off of Craigslist. Did a little research on the guy first though and I love my car.:yes:

I have a pic of an 'as original' 1967 Sport Coupe with a 283 and it has a spacer. The 1966 Assembly Manual shows the spacer for V/8s, except L30 and L79. I believe there was a shroud and no spacer for the 283 with the optional V01 HD rad and the same could be if the car was a/c.

I used to own this car. He is reading vin and trim tag 115 vs 116. It was always a 6cylinder car.

So he's just making up the story about the 283 being taken out in 1967:rolleyes:? This didn't made sense from the beginning. I've never heard of anybody buying a V/8 and having the dealer swap it out for a six cylinder....when the car was brand new!

I sure am curious how you are able to find all the nicest cars??? Can't seem to open a magazine without seeing one of your cars anymore.....Novas , Mopars and wagons oh my.

I'd say you were a lucky guy but I have a feeling there is more to it than luck.
