NO they did not, the small block for '68 was a 327. And of course there was the big rat motor 427 :-)

Thanks , I don't have the orig. engine then, so there will be no need to look for matching #s I read on here it was supposed to have motors to lift the rag top ,, mine don't so I guess I'm missing that too . but thats ok its not hard to put up at all .

There should be an ID number on the engine block which can be traced to identify where it came from. Most small blocks look alike from the outside.
