How much difference is there between a 68 and 67?

Got my wheels and tires on this weekend. Wheels are some old 14 inch westerns i picked up for cheap, bead blasted and painted. Tires are 185/60-14 front and 195/70-14 rears. Have done quite a bit to this car since i got it. It has an all new wiring harness, all new switches and relays, new balljoints, seals and bearings in front end, new carb, repainted all engine tin, added roof rack, and made a custom hood emblem and front bumper. Handles like its on rails now! Thanks for looking guys!
