For '68 a Camaro SS with drum brakes used finned front drums. Of course for '69 all SS cars came with front disks as standard, and the non-SS Camaros were supposed to use the finned front drums as standard. That is also what I've seen, but that's not to say that a few non-finned ones possibly slipped out??

BTW, I've also heard that the convertibles used 11" front drums rather than the 8.5" drums up front (I havn't knowingly witnessed that).
