Default Any info on this tag that points to a Z?

Friend's brother has this 1968 that came with cowl induction from the factory. He asked me if there's any way to know if it's a Z. I know on some data plates there may be hints, but I don't think this one has anything....correct?

Unfortunately, zero info of that sort on 1968 trim tags.

Also, cowl induction not available in 1968 unless you are referring to a cowl plenum. As already stated, no info on a 1968 data plate.

Isn't the use of a cowl plenum "cowl induction"?

Splitting hairs here but cowl induction usually refers to the "cowl induction" hood from 1969.

Splitting more hairs , in 69 the factory term was ZL/2 "Special Ducted Hood"
I could be wrong and someone please correct me but I think the term "Cowl Induction" first came with the hood emblem on the 70 Chevelle's??

Oh, I see--semantics.

But that's alright because I play the same game, and I'd rather frame it properly according to the experts.....thank you!
