I am guessing you meant 1966. In 96 they didn't have 327s

Welcome to the Team!

Well maybe his grandfather desiring a 327 pulled the 350 crank and pistons out of his SB2 reverse cooled EFI hot rod and replaced the crank with a two piece 307 crankshaft and a one piece adapter along with 8 new 327 pistons sized to fit the block (probably required at least a 0.020 over bore and hone to get a good fit).

Or it could be just a typo.

Either way Welcome to the Team!
