Interesting. Thanks for sharing. So technically, a 1970 camaro could have a CE stamped block with a date code up to 1975 due to 1970 being the last year of the 5 year drivetrain warranty. Is that true? Someone correct me if I have it wrong.
You are correct. The CE engines according to that article were made starting in 1968. All 1968, 1969, and 1970 Chevys had a 5 year/50,000 mile warranty so for those years a warranty CE engine could be as much as 5 years after build of the car. Starting in 1971, the cars got only a 12 month/12,000 mile warranty so couldn't get a warranty engine up to 5 years later.
Amazing! Didn't realize they had a 5 year/50,000 mile warranty in 1970. That's a huge difference between 70 & 71 models.
In the 50,000 miles of my warranty, I used it exactly once and that was just to replace a valve seal.
I didn't get an opportunity to use my 50,000 mile warranty on my Camaro because it never needed any repairs during the first 5 years of its life.
I did get a new battery under warranty because it was cracked when the car arrived from the factory, but the battery isn't covered under the 5 year/50,000mile power train warranty. It had its own X many month warranty.
