Can you be more specific about the carb you are interested in?  Please clarify what carb you are talking about by part number or list number or application.  The 396 engines had two different carbs for 1968.  The list 4053 (396/375) had bronze filters in the fuel inlets for instance.  Many owners removed them as constant replacement of these filters over time resulted in stripping the threads of the fuel bowls and so folks put in an inline filter.

Rochester 4MV Carb with Part numbers: Auto ='s 7028218 and Man Trans ='s 7028217.  Also, hopefully not to confuse you but to inform only, I believe that VERY early in the 68 production year some 325 hp cars COULD have received 7016817 with automatic trans equiped vehicles.

The Rocherster #'s for a 68 Camaro 396/325 are 7028210A/T  7028211S/T  as per Chevrolet by the numbers which is the resource most recognized.The  previous #'s were for a 396/350.  I'll bet your really confused now.

Tinkerr may be correct.  The numbers I provided you however are from my 68 Chassis Service Manual for the Camaro and right from the Carb specifications section (8).  It is a table with engine displacement/hp and provides the make, model and part number for that combo (396/325).  There is a note provided for the 396/325 one I picked for you that says it is for "Camaro only".  Maybe someone with original equipment will provide you with the info you need.  Sorry I can't be of more definite help than this :-[
