More pictures of the engine compartment:

RS Washer bottle zinc screws.





Thought this was interesting as I was going through parts over the weekend and noticed this...  Not sure if it was done by the factory or previous owner...

Just a couple old Camaros.

Do you have a 68 L78 Camaro?  If so, message me as I'd like to add it to my registry.

Thanks Chick - I didn't notice and missed your PM regarding this additional picture until just now.. It does appear like it was painted so when I get one and get my plug out I will paint mine similarly - thanks for the trouble..
I also got your PM regarding the dipstick and I responded - hope you got it.. but the ghist of it was - mine was long gone by the time I acquired the car close to 30 yrs ago and had been replaced with a chromed version.. so I'm sorry to not be of any assistance to you with that!
Appreciate all your trouble with this!  Randy

I've enjoy seeing such a wonderful looking 68 in what looks like it was lost and stuck in time and then awakened in 2016-....

Thanks for the post and pictures. My 68 is so from original i don't know anything other than it was a V-8,  real RS and had a Muncie. A repainted with many things changed former drag car from the 1970's had little clues left when I found it in 82 with no mortar or trans. Even the 12 bolt date dosent quite fit the time line close enough. But it did still have a 5.38  :D

The rally green is my favorite color from that era. Mine was British green now old DuPont midnight blue I think I remember it being said.
1968 RS 327 Muncie M-21, 12 bolt

Chick, that was the breather hose you referenced?  Looks like the one I have with the GM tag.
