Decode your 1968 Chevelle Fisher Body Number Plate Generally, in 1968 the series/model designation on the trim tag is a trim level and not an indication of the engine type installed in the vehicle as Fisher Body didn't care what engine type was to be installed.

1970 Chevelle SS Coupe Gobi Beige with Black interior which originally came from Kentucky (documented). It is powered by a numbers matching 396/350hp engine. Options include Turbo-Hydramatic automatic transmission, power steering and brakes, special cowl induction hood, strato-bucket seats and a black vinyl top.
I've read that cowl hoods used to be the method for air induction for older vehicles with carburetors and that the only purpose they serve for vehicles with fuel injection is for looks. However, I hear quite a few people (especially Cherokee owners) say they help keep the engine cool, too.
