The original dipstick did not have a number on it. The replacement does also should be brown plug on the end just like the one you said yours has. Post a picture of it with measurements.  I would look at the tube or oil pan!

Should not hiss. I would check the  hoses that attach to the valve in the switch first. If the are not leaking then you have a problem with the switch. Hope this helps.

Why would a car listed in Minneapolis Mn craiglist be located in Kansas. Sounds like a scam! Buyer beware!

Thought 1967 396 was not offered with air condioning! Line on evaporator is turned to the wrong direction. Trim tag looks odd to me but  I will leave that to the experts. Not original fan shroud either.

67 AIM shows part of engine assembly. If your car did not have smog the part # is 3838444. That was in my 1969 parts book. Hope this helps.

I have always enjoyed a good swap meet. Been finding stuff for my 68's for many years. But ebay opened a new world for finding hard to fine parts .My favorite is when you see 10 watchers and the part is hard to to find and has a buy it now price. But ebay has even slowed way down like the swap meets. GM does not make most of these parts anymore. Most restorers would rather use GM than reproduction parts so the availablety of these parts are drying up with the cars been dragged out of barn's , junkyards and fields. Went to a swap meat in February and found a 68z28 power steering driver pulley hidden under bench for for $5.00. Have been to 3 other swap meets since and did not buy a thing.  Still love the swap meets because you can see the part. For the guys that are too busy looking at there phones and not digging thru boxes thanks.
