Since you led off with the gas tank under the bed I will say yes- though the
easy visual clue is the filler on the side off the bed vs on the side of the cab
on the later ones. Jim

I think... from memory (we are in trouble now)... 1968.

I think they had the door button, which got moved to the paddle latch on top.

You got it Jay, that is the only year with the button but the door would interchange with all Vettes up to 80 I believe. Let me say at least they look exactly the same to the non Corvette specialist.

It's your floor!

I had a lot of vettes back in the day. I never had a '68... or even painted one... but I thought the button was the unusual factor.

I haven't read all 192 pages of this thread, but lets try this question...

What is the smallest size that the big block Chevy "rat motor" came in? ...and what model of Chevy was it offered in?

I believe that would br 366 CID which was offered in medium duty trucks and I think buses. It was a small bore 3.935". stroke of 3.760" tall deck block with 3 compression rings and 2 oil rings. The ones I worked on in my fleet service days were governed to about 4000 rpm.

That's the one!

This thread got frozen for some reason. I'll mention that a couple other guys who contacted me knew about the truck motor, and mentioned that it was used in two different brands of "combines" (used for harvesting crops)...but you are the official winner! :-)

The floor is yours...

I ask questions I think I am the only one who knows the answer. I don't ask all the questions that I DON'T know the answer to. If I did you would see how little I know.
