I've never seen a source for the block fitting. They come up occasionally on ebay.

I won't need to replace the black plastic line I have but do I need to replace the nut, what's shown in the pic and would I need to replace the cone shaped fitting shown in the pic as well? Will I be able to reuse those pieces?

The double compression fitting you have has been compressed and you won't be able to re-use.
You need the Sleeve number 22008 and fitting 16001 for $2 a piece.

New ones are available here online; http://www.fastfittings.com/search?searchwords=22008&searchsmall_5487389=Search

Hey Todd, Thanks. The double compression fitting is the piece that screws into the block fitting correct? Do I need the sleeve at both ends of the oil line? What about that little piece that slides on the outside of the oil line with the cap as shown in the pic on the end of the oil line? I'll probably need that too right? Where do I get that?

If you're going with a metal line, all you need is what's shown in the photo in reply #36. The tiny tubular inserts in the photo in reply #37 are only used inside the ends of the nylon line if you have to cut the line, and if you buy the complete nylon line kit, the ends will already have the inserts installed - they keep the line from collapsing when you tighten the fitting.

John,

Do you have a metal line or the original plastic type on your car?

John...is there a source for this line complete? Paragon?

I bought Paragon's line kit and cut one end off for the new double compression fitting, as shown.
The reason I like Paragon's kit is as John has stated before; That little compression fitting shown there is a GM proprietary fitting.
I have lots of different compression fittings for the 1/8" line and the one shown post 25 is the GM style. It appears its swaged on somehow during the process of assembly. Now all the others I've seen don't work as well (on stock components) as the GM fitting.
