Also, what do you guys think about the partial VIN stamping on the engine pad?

Kurt, what say you?

Looks original.

Interesting order - mag wheelcovers, spoilers, stripe, top, but..... no ps, pb, and a 3-speed.

Wheelcovers look good from the side, but they stick out like a set of Dolly Parton's.

I knew there was a reason I was drawn to them :o. Although their probably down around her knees by now  ;).

Seriously, even though I think it's a nice looking wheel I do think they have their place. I think a 327 is a good marriage & maybe even an L48 (boarder line)...but, I certainly can't see these same wheels on a Z or on a BB.

I'm with Jack on this one, if I had them I would definitely hang on to them.

Yeah, I'd definitely keep the wheel covers, even though I don't care for the look. My first impression was maybe from a 3/4 ton Ford, with the 7inch, 6 lug bolt circle.  :D

 I think those hubcaps are actually off of a mid-70's Chevy pickup truck. My friend had one with those wheels on it.

P/N 3918080, and optional in 68 and 69 on all models except Z28 and JL8. Not sure if that included trucks though since I don't have a truck P&A 31.

Is the chrome with pattern shifter ball original?  My friend put a used one (but 4 spd) on his 71 Z28 because he didn't like the stock piece.  This is the only other one I have seen that is chrome with a pattern on it.  Just wondering what they may have come with as stock items.  Certainly looks original here.  Please let me know if there's already a post on this.

My understanding for the 1968 is....with the D55 console option the shifter knob was all chrome with no shift pattern, the shift pattern was on the top of the console.  With no console, the shifter knob was a two piece unit with the shift pattern engraved on the top piece.

I noticed in the P & A manual the listings for the knobs associated with the shifters with no console only showed one part number, whereas the AIM shows two part numbers (one for the top half and one for the bottom half).  Don't have a clue for this discrepancy.  Maybe someone might know if the service replacement was different than the factory unit.  That might account for the chrome one with a shift pattern....but I don't know for certain.

The P&A P/N is for the "set" (Upper and Lower) while the AIM splits them out.

  Anybody here watching Barrett Jackson Las Vegas Auction?   They're advertising a Corvette Bronze '68 SS 396, claiming that ALL Corvette Bronze '68 Camaro's were SS 396's. LMAO!!!!!
