Vintage Ad: 1967 Chevrolet Police Car Engines – A 240 HP 327? That’s A New One

This may seem a bit trivial, but for someone who memorized all the engine options (and their detailed specs) of many cars of the era, but most of all Chevys, this one caught my eye: A 240 hp 327? Never heard of such a thing.

It must have been a special version just for police car use. It appears to be the the 250 hp 327 sold available a few years earlier (through 1965), but with a lower 8.75:1 compression ratio, for regular gas. But oddly, it has a dual exhaust, which the 250 hp version didn’t.

Meanwhile, the 275 hp version has only a single (large diameter) exhaust. Mix and match.
