Q: Verify a 350 H.O.
Up until about 5 minutes ago I thought my bird was originally an inline 6. Well I now know it was a V-8 after checking the VIN. Is there anyway to tell if it could have been a H.O. through the vin and trim or would I have to go through PHS?
Could I tell from strips, engine code, hood holes, tires, or other distinct H.O. markings?
A: As far as I can tell, the only 350HO info on the car would have been atttached to the engine – such as code WK (manual trans) with cam 067, carb 7028269 and distributor 1111447 or YM (automatic) with cam 066, carb 7028266 and distributor 1111282, both with casting number 18 heads.
Checking for other options is a more questionable. Since the 2 barrel 350 could have optional dual exhausts, evidence of that option is not a guide either. Both the 350HO and the 2 barrel had the same hood emblems and related holes, so this is useless info. The stripes could have been a option deleted.
