What's the rest of the numbers on the axle tag? It should indicate the ring gear diameter as well as the axle code. The '68 289-2V would be pretty easy to ID, around the outside of the cylinder head, just outside the valve cover flange, in the corner, look for a cast "2A". Also, if you pull a valve cover and the head says "289" and has a date code consistent with your cars scheduled build date that's another clue, as is the engine assembly date, stamped in a pad on the front of the drivers side bank just below the cylinder head parting line. Lastly, you COULD have a partial VIN on the back of the engine above the bellhousing flange.
What, me worry?
