1968 RS/SS engine bay

I recently purchased a 68 RS/SS convertible and it has the original engine but the carburetor, intake manifold and valve covers are gone.
I would like to take it back to original. Any pics of what I should have installed would be appreciated. If anyone has any of the parts I listed for sale I would be interested.
The first question is, does the 68 350 intake manifold have the oil fill tube?
thanks for the help.

Yes, the intake would have the oil fill tube. You should be able to find the correct valve covers and carb.

Re: 1968 RS/SS engine bay

Here's a survivor, non RS, 4spd car. An automatic wouldn't have the smog pump (A.I.R.). The chrome valve covers are plain (non-script) stamp steel , one hole on each for PCV system. They were used on 68 SS350 and Z/28 only.

for some reason I am not seeing your picture? Is the intake manifold painted?

You still can't see the pic ?? It's posted twice now as it's in the quotation as well.

Yes, intake is orange.
