Hi, new guy with 68 RS/SS 396

Hi,
New guy with a 68 Camaro RS/SS 396 I owned since I was 15 when my dad helped me buy it from the original owner back in 94. A few things about it is it is a real RS/SS but it does not have the original tranny its got a 700r4 and the block is supposedly original but I dought it. Its a great car original color with KK code just repainted nice before I bought it in 94 with all wheel disc brakes. Some pics...by thr way I am from the Peninsula in the SF bay area.

No its not it only had front disc brakes the rotors and calipers date to a 77 Seville.

One think is certain it was originally a RS/SS and it had a manuel transmission but we are uncertain if it had a 396 or 350. The original owner claims it was a factory 396 but I am scepticle since the block was decked, the heads have hydrolic lifters and date to 66 or 67 not sure I still have never gotten around to check the casting number.

It has a tic toc tac and console guage cluster all original.

The redline on the tach (if original) may help you narrow down which engine was in the car originally.
