    Every one! (through 1967) I never remember weather the hydraulics started in 68 or not. The engine lasted through 69 and was dropped from production cars.

      All of the 273s were solid lift cams with adjustable rocker arms as best I remember.

            Nope, you're good. I had to look it up myself to be sure.
