Found the rear axle ID on my 68 .Perhaps someone here can tell me what it means.When I got car in 77 it had 4.88 posi in it.I changed the gears to 4.11 a couple years later.It was very likely changed from stock as the ring gear has a spacer between the carrier and ring.I think its a series 3 carrier?
The ID is  PP  0321G1 stamped into the forward side of right tube.On the corner of center section is cast K67.

Scroll up a little from Mike's link to decode the casting date.
The CRG explanation is easier to read than Colvin's.

It's really not that hard. It just takes practice and a great source like CRG!

With that axle, I'd say it was originally an L35 with an auto.

I also suspect a lower HP 396 and Auto was original.Was doing some research of the console and floor area (thanks to this site)and thats why I am guessing an auto was in there.It has a rubber cable boot in the floor under the console.The speedo cable exits the firewall on the left side of steering coluum.The cutout for the 4 spd shifter is rough and jagged,so not factory and I have a SBC cross member for trans.
