Darrell,
That's a really late 68. Does it have the 210 hp or the 275 hp version of the 327?

68 12E finned front and rear owned since 1974 non power brakes no ac small block ...manual trans
Same question: Does it have the 210 hp or the 275 hp version of the 327?
Are you sure on the finned rears?

Thanks!
Kurt S

My '68 RS was built 02D, 230 six with 3 speed manual. Non-finned drums front and rear. This is my first post on here...moving here from the Team Camaro website because I'm more of a purist. Is there a forum regarding glass?

Can anyone explain the differences in the brake shoe sets used with the finned drum as opposed to the non-finned drum? GM specifies a different part number. Thanks, Joe.
