Although you didn't state it, since the oil fill tube is in the front of the intake, this isn't a 69.
Attached to this e-mail is a pic of the correct 327 - 210 HP engine for a 69. I will post 3 additional pics in seperate posts to follow. The engine pictured is the correct engine for my 69 RS, which I installed last summer. My car has a PowerGlide, so it also has the heat tube / snorkel assembly to the air cleaner EFE (early fuel evaporative) system. To the best of my knowledge, 3 spd manual cars did not have EFE.
I think that in '68, the air cleaner was turned in the opposite direction, with the snorkel pointing toward the driver side. I have what I believe is a '68 air cleaner and it is oriented that way. Never confirmed it though once I realized it was not the correct air cleaner for my car.
