I'm in Canada. I have found and liberated numerous 65-70 Chevrolet and Canadian Pontiac (which used Chevy drivetrains) of their 15/16 front sway bars and 12 bolt rear ends with 4 control arms. Many were 6 cyl or base small block cars, and in most cases 4 door sedans. This leads me to believe that at least in Canada, you got the 12 bolt if you ordered the F40 HD suspension. Where I live - because the roads were so poor back in the 60s - I think the dealers specified F40 for most of the cars they ordered. I can think of at least 13 65-70 Canadian B bodies that I either owned, stripped or picked a few parts from that had this combination. Five of them were Pontiacs. I also found one 69 Chevelle 6 cyl 4 door sedan which gave up its 12 bolt to me.
