Had a Big Journal 327

I had an "early" 1969 Camaro with a big journal 327 and a powerglide. Pulled the glide, dropped in a M-21 and some 4:11 posi and did some high 13 second times at Baylands Raceway in Fremont. The car was stock, stock stock.

Boy that engine would rev.:yes:

All large journal factory 327's were forged cranks and probably from a vette. If it is a cast crank like this one looks like then it was a 307 crank. Same stroke 3.25".

Ryan are you sure about this? I was always told that all small journal 327 cranks were forged and all large journal 327 cranks were nodular iron. not ever seeing one in person I really don't know:confused::confused:http://www.ajgeneral.com/chevy_crankshaft_casting_numbers/

Joe, remember that 327 I sold to your buddy with the Impala? That had a forged large journal 327 crank in it. I was told they are very rare and only from a hipo 327 like a 350 hp vette motor. That is what I was told about where the crank was from maybe i am wrong about that but I am positive that was a forged crank.

Wasn't the 210hp 2-bbl engine the only 327 available in a '69 Camaro? If so, that is impressive for a low cr 2-bbl engine.
