Post a couple of pictures and the experts will let you know if it's original or not.

To add- Be sure to include a picture of the outside back cover and the warranty page.

Thanks Guys. Mine must be a repro as my back cover does not have the text in the lower right corner (on the back cover) and my warranty page does not have that white sticker/overlay on it.

It came out of a 68 350 4 speed car I owned many years ago. I forgot all about it until I did some cleaning this past weekend and found it in a drawer.

Wish it was an original but no such luck LOL.

Thanks again and you guys are the best!

The newer repops have the text on back cover now. Warranty page is still the give away
