Was the 270 only coupled with the coil bracket which had a steeper angle to it?
The cowl induction air cleaner, the 67 L48 L30 Aircleaner were all larger in diameter and would not allow the regular coil to be positioned where it was with the "upright" bracket.
I was going through My brothers 73 Corvette and saw it also has a 270 coil and bracket which leans more than others.

James,  That is what we've been told the difference is by JohnZ...  The '270' number represents the coil AND the leaning bracket!

Delco had a baffling way of numbering the coil & bracket. The coil number is actually the assembly number. So even though a 270 coil and a 290 coil have different #'s, they might be the same internally!

I was scanning thru the MacNeish book expecting to see details about coils - absolutely nothing. This indicates to me that if Jerry didn't list it, it wasn't unique to the 67-68 Z28's. Resistance wires were a common usage, but  the 69 Z used a different coil. According to a Camaro Fact book I have the coil was painted gloss black.

The docs are clear, one coil for 68 V8. But Danny's car is a 298. Several others are 293.
I don't have a single Chassis Broadcast sheet for a 68 Z which would tell us something.
Wonder what's on Chick's and Steve's cars.
Finally got a Chassis sheet for a 68 Z - same as 69 Z, so probably a 298.  (Most of the time if they reused a code, it was the same part.)
