Very doubtful if you will find a build sheet in a '68.
Check here- www.chevellestuff.com You can find the engine #'s on the pad in front of the right cylinder head, if the last #'s on the pad match the last #'s of the VIN, then you have the original motor.

the only build sheets I've heard being found in 68's were from the GM plant in Freemont CA & even then there are only a couple of them .. In El Caminos !!

Even if it is the #'s engine, it would be worth more if you still have the carb, manifold, ignition, etc. Many of us change to more "reliable" pieces so we can drive them, but always save the original parts in case you want to sell.
