Is there any chance my 327 2 bbl car came with multi leafs from the factory?
I read under suspension.......that all 12 bolts and 350 cars had them, but are there any cases where a 327 cars came so equipped?

About zero. Every 327 I've seen has monoleafs.
What is in the first box on line 4 of your car's BBC? I can't read it, but if you can, that should confirm it.

Couple more questions........

1) I just bought a 69 rear-(sept date) that was advertised as a multi leaf. When put side by side with a 76 multi rear, the spring pads are 1/4 inch smaller than the 76 rear, is this common with the later rears?
2) Is there any advantage of running the multi leafs, especially on a non performance car?

Dunno about '69s, but according to my GM books, any '68 Camaro 327 over the base 4bbl engine (327/250hp) should have had multi-leafs, and that also meant it had a 12-bolt, but they were rare as hen's teeth. No 2-barrel 327s seem to have had multi-leafs. I've seen a 327/275hp 4-speed '68 with a 12-bolt and multi-leafs, but only 1. Every 2bbl car I've ever seen had mono-leafs, '68 or '69. I guess it's possible, though.

Those spring clamps dont look like the factory ones.  The originals I've seen have always had a type of rivet head holding them.  Leads me to believe they arent the originals.

Unless this type was available also?

I would concur with Kurt that your 327/210 hp; 2Bbl small bore Rochester carb almost certainly had monoleaf springs from the factory; as is the case with my '69 RS with the same engine and carb.  (Also true for base 307's in later '69 production.)

The monoleaf spring rides very well - don't believe you'll be disappointed if you go that route.

Yup, probably a T...... and then another letter. Smiley Probably TN or TM. Might be tough to tell those apart.....

I have one of the early model California made 69s 327/210 hp; 2Bbl small bore Rochester carb. 77900 original miles. It has mono leafs.  Don't know if this helps much but a sample of one.

cheers,  Greg

I own a 1968 , I have a 10 bolt rear end w/ multi leaf springs.  I do not know if the rear end is original to the car or not.

The multi-leaf springs in the photo are aftermarket replacements; factory multi-leaf springs looked like this:
