You need to look at the details then.

We need to add pics of the 67/68 backup light holes to that page...

In going to that link provided by Kurt, to check out what appears to be new information and photos, I also noticed this photo for the LH side frame rail doubler for mounting the LH exhaust (for dual exhaust):     
http://www.camaros.org/images/pages/options/exh_doubler.jpg

The doubler shown seems to be correct, but that photo also shows an incorrect exhaust hanger.   Wouldn't it be better to show the *correct* exhaust hanger, or no hangar at all?   Here are two photos showing what I mean.

so if there is the doubler for the exhaust mount on mine it could be another hint that it could be rs or could still be just a base coupe? I will have to check tomorrow to see if i can spot a doubler on the frame

The existence of the factory doubler on the LH rear frame rail only indicates that dual exhaust were installed from the factory .. ie..  Z28, and SS and COPO I would imagine.

That plate wasn't used in 67 or 68. For those two years they used threaded inserts. The plate was a 69 only thing.

(For 68, check out the AIM, UPC NF2, Sheet A4, item 12 or UPC N10, Sheet A4, item 12)

However, even if the car has the inserts, it only proves it came with dual exhaust, which was optional on both the LF7 and the L30. If it doesn't have the inserts, the car came with single exhaust which was standard on both the LF7 and the L30.

correct dual exhaust hangers for 67-8 look like this, these are not repros either:

Those pics have been there for 3-4 years. :)
The pic of the doubler show the whole wheelwell, so someone knows where to look.
