not looking in the right place it takes a long time to find cars like that in good condition check Creigslist or Hemmings motors. Use hemmings only if your willing you pay there cars are very nice

no 1979 with an lt1 those were the early second gen and fourth gen z/28s

do u mean LT1 as a 350 motor or LT as the trim of camaro for 79? anywho definitly go to craigslist.com or ebay. and im pretty sure u meant LT camaro cos LT1 is the name of the aluminum block 350 used in 94-97 .

my brother has one for sale,71 LT1-350

sure you can... Ebay... here is a link http://motors.search-desc.ebay.com/1979-camaro-350_Cars-Trucks_W0QQcatrefZC12QQcoactionZcompareQQcoentrypageZsearchQQcopagenumZ1QQdfspZ34QQfromZR40QQftrtZ1QQftrvZ1QQftsZ2QQmppfqyZ1979Q20Q20camaroQQmppfqyZ1979Q20Q20camaroQQsabfmtsZ1QQsacatZ6001

FYI Chevrolet introduced an all aluminum 350 small block in the 70's badged LT1, very rare. The LT1 used in 94-97 was still a cast block, not aluminum.

There was never a LT1 badged motor in the 70's? The 350 CI motor in the 70's was the L86, the same motor that the Corvette ran, with a differnet bore and storke. Basically, a detuned version. The LT1 was introduced in 1992 in the Corvette, and was rated at 300 HP

Thats right! 93-97 were cast iron, 98 was when the aluminum junk came out. also i totally forgot that they did make a 70s 350 lt1 block in the camaros, but are u sure it was around in 79 not discontinued in 75 after all that emissions crap came into play?
