Hey Ed,
The suffix code on the 12 bolt is BR 11 01 G2.
The decoder says it should be a 3.07 Posi but it's currently a non-posi. I guess they could drop in what ever they wanted later on if the original one died.
I'm getting it overhauled in a couple of weeks so hopefully I can find out more then.

Hi again Ed,
In checking in a multitude of lighting, I can see that the engine suffix is ED...this points to a 1968 Chevelle 396 ci with 325hp with Manual Trans.
Finally in getting back to the post topic, I can confirm there are no holes, existing or patched in the front guards. possibly replaced from original.

Ue, going by the pictures and the axle code (which appears to be the original - except you're right, it should be a posi), I would say the car started life as either a L35 (396/325) or L34 (396/350). The 3.07 axle was the "standard" axle for both of those.

The original 12 bolt, the big block heater box, the 5.5k tach all point to a big block, so congrats!

Just an update. My mechanic who overhauled the rear confirmed it's a Posi 3.07.
