You're getting a little closer to knowing exactly what you have...  Smiley    VIN.... L346855    is a July '68 production car..

C130 if It makes any sense     (13 March 1970 cast engine block, assembled 24 March 1970; installed originally in a '70 Corvette with 350ci/300hp/4sp)
the Rear axle ID is BU0925G2 E       (3.73:1 Posi 12 bolt - could be from a '68 or 69 Camaro.. assembled 25 Sept)
4-speed muncie ID P0510

Does the engine pad have a VIN on it?   mmSnnnnnnn   or ??

GM only made one size booster. You are probably looking at modified cars wit later model 4 wheel discs.

Z = 4
