It should have a left side manifold heat stove with elbow pipe to the air cleaner.

Left side? Left = driver's side, Right = passenger side.

Heat stove was on the left (drivers) side in 68. Moved to the right side in 69.

In the course of trying to find the correct air cleaner for my '69RS base coupe, I collected a couple of others, one may be a '68.  I have at least 3 dfferent variants hanging on the wall in the garage.  If you can e-mail me with the details, I'll compare to what I have and can send you pics as well.

Let me know.

This isn't the best photo of the setup but does show the 327/275hp air cleaner and stove pipe. The manifold stove and the stove pipe are the tough ones to find.

Air cleaner that I have that I believe is a '68 is smaller in heighth than the one you have.  I believe it is for the base 210 Hp configuration which would have had a Rochester 2BBl with 1-1/4" throttle plates.

Sorry I wasn't able to help.

  Rick,   
   I don't have a spare, ...but am following this thread since I also have a '68 327/275 auto.
 
   My question however, ...wouldn't the air filter housing be the same (with auto trans) for a 350(SS) and the 327/275, ...since both had Q-jet carbs? (with the exception of the chrome lid for an SS)?

That's correct, the L48 and L30 are very similar in many regards....just a little more bling  ;)

I might as well add a shot of my 68 L35 with A/C to cover the bases. It gets alot more crowded and complicated with a BB, A/C, and smog  ::)
