    I have a 1979 camaro with a 350, but it is not the motor that came in it, the block number is 3914680 i have went to many websites and cant find this number anywhere:mad: , i have checked the number a hundred times to make sure I got it right, I wondered if anyone had any info about this block?

    Double check to see if it is 3914460 instead of 80 !! If so it's a 68 327 block

    I can't find a 3914680, but Madmike lists a 3914660 here

    Chevy casting numbers are crude enough that you probably cannot differentiate between a 6 and an 8.
    If it is 3914660, it should be a 1968 327
