I don't have a 68 but, can you help us a little? What is your car's assembly plant? The different plants did some things slightly different. And, what is your car's build date?

Things like the date produced, assembly plant, engine, A/C, power brakes, power steering etc make a difference? As an aside the underhood is same for coupe, convertible or fastback.

I am attaching some pictures of my San Jose built 1968 289-2V, but if you haven't yet looked at my photobook according to my previous reply, use the instructions in my sig you will be able to enlarge the pictures to see some very good details - for instance - if you enlarge the first or fourth picture below when in the photobook, you can detect the star logo on the spark plug at the front of the engine near the battery. hope it helps
Just one of the many original detail items I like is that the air cleaner filter is an original Autolite FA-50 with the star symbol to match the sticker on the outside of the metal air cleaner. Once in a while someone will think they can nail me with not having all the correct parts, especially the since the filter is a 'hidden' item, I can open it up to show it off.
