    I picked up a 1968 TH400 that I'm using for mockup. Should I decide to build it, I'm going to wind up cutting the case to fit an ultrabell. Is this worth anything more than a core to anyone before I decide to make irreversible changes? I'm not a numbers guy. 20171015_175602.jpg

    The VIN derivative (stamped on the case some where) and the build date will give some clue as to desirability and value. IIRC, only BBC equipped cars received the TH400 in the '60s so that does narrow the field some.

    P.S. If it ends up being a camaro orphan the CRG has a sticky for that.

    It appears to be either a ss396 Chevelle or full-size car orphan. I still have orphan paperwork for a 69 Camaro I posted on CRG a while back. Original POP, etc. The stuff doesn't mean much to me, but I don't want to ruin somebody else's resto if that's what they're into. I'm really bad with modifying everything lol. That's why I like to buy 6 cylinder cars and cars that are already "cut up".

    I'm sure the Chevelle guys have an orphan section too:bowtie:.

    I really don't understand why more people don't have your attitude...why cut up a Z/28 or SS when there are so many L6 and 307 sport coupes to be had.

    Good on you man I am sure someone is looking for that if it is a late 60's 400...

    Would you like me to post it on Super Car Registry?

    Can you post the number on the tag? It looks like 68D---. If so, the D decodes as a tranny used with a 327 engine.
