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.

Yes there is on the right hand  side only. 1968 and 1969 are are different also. Hard to find for 1968 but there is one right side on ebay. Hope this helps.

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.

The drive gear might had been changed inside the transmission sometime. The might had put the wrong tooth count gear back in!  The black gear should been right. I just told you abought the other gears so you didn't have to take off the tailshaft. Glad it worked.

Did you get a warranty book with it in the glove box. The metal tag on the back of the book would help if it is still there. Good looking car!
