Yes, two differences being discussed.

I have seen both styles of bolts for the hinge to fender bolts.

Can you check the head markings on left and right fender to firewall bolts?  Are they from the same manufacturer?  If not, that might explain the difference.

Yes, will check head markings on fender to firewall bolts. I do know Jerry commented on my build thread that he also had the smaller captured washer 3/4" used on the hinge to fender.
Some interior pictures:





The type of screws used in the vent & U shaped rubber are the same on both sides.

More pictures of the engine compartment:

Let Skip know if he needs the plastic caps for the screw ends to give me a call.

Great catch David! As many know the back sides of those screws had a type of cap so it did not eventually cause issues with hoses.
Now for some more pictures! Gray tipped but flat style oil dip stick.


Ground wire from battery ground to radiator support. Note the size of the star washer!





Side Marker Bezel which used a thinner bezel in front fender compared to back bezel and bezels had black paint in groove from factory.

hmm, maybe I'm wrong, but thought I read/heard that 68 didn't have the caps on RS washer bottle screws ?

Note the in-line check valve on the RS vacuum line from tank, then the filter. Those check valves aren't reproduced as far as I know.  69 is, but it's different. BTW, I thought that line was routed in behind the fender. The filter and check valve would still be accessible prior to where the line disappears behind the fender.

Chick, do you recall or have pics of the handle on hood release ? I'm pretty certain (not sure) they were painted black so it wasn't so visible through the grill ?

Thanks for the pics. VERY NICE SURVIVOR !

Did you ever get a chance to compare the head markings in the fender to firewall bolts?

This is the pass side with the small diameter washer.


On your question Garth "do you recall or have pics of the handle on hood release ? I'm pretty certain (not sure) they were painted black so it wasn't so visible through the grill ?"
No I do not and need to check that Garth!

This bolt is identical to the one used on my car......there is a circle inside the recessed edge of the head and there are three slashes around the edge of the circle and the slashes only occupy one half of the circle.  Opposite the half with the slashes is an "S".
