68 Chevelle engine I.D.

I m considering buying a '68 SS396 Chevelle which is in pretty rough shape. The owner says it has the original motor, but cannot tell me which version of 396 it has. How can I tell what kind of motor is in this car? It is worth restoring a basketcase if the car is not a L 78 motor?

All L-78 cars had aluminum intakes and Holley carbs.Not to say these can be removed since it was new.All lesser Hp cars had cast iron intakes and Quadrajet carbs.There is a chart of engine codes at the first page under the years index, get the ones off the car, and look them up to make sure, or post them here and we can decode them for you.
