Could be an L79, although it really won't mean much with the drivetrain gone. There was also a 275 HP 327 in 1968 that was available with a 4 speed. A broadcast sheet would tell it like it was.

Brent,,I want it,please have it delivered to me!Really though look for the bolt in rubber snubbers on the upper control arm,throttle arm,dual exhaust plates and if you have the Original Harrison rad the L79 cars had a different GM part number on the radiator tag.I have the info on the front springs for the L79's too. Since this is original paint and interior I would love to see the original Dealership badge.You know Brent your out of hand with these 68's,you might need counseling,LOL.Love the color combo! Dan

The radiator and the spring tags are good leads. Anything I can do to help let me know. Would be cool to add it to the registry. I think you and Dan(Sherlock Holmes of the car world) can get some owner info and track it down. That is a very cool color combo!!! Also maybe there is some crayon marks on the firewall, you never know.

Jeff,Thanks! Y:eek:ou know this is a early car too,maybe you might find something different on the build sheet.That interior looks intact,should be in the rear seat top portion passenger side for bucket seat cars.I can't wait to see what you might find once you get it into your 68 Nova laboritory. Look under the seats for old envelopes,old insurance cards,dam I'm jealous now!

Yep.

What rear is in the car? A 327/4-speed combo (L79 or L30) should have a 12-bolt rear with 3.07 gears. Autos and 3-speed manuals came with a 8.2" 10-bolt.
