Check out www.mysterychevelle.com. I believe the site owner's car is of the 360 hp variety.

Not to be too picky but I see some other items that are not 'correct.'

I agree, there are some minor things incorrect in your engine bay Keith. Although I'm not an advocate of chalk marks over the black paint, your markings are very authentic appearing, very well done.

I wasn't criticizing your work Keith, not in any way, just imfo for the OP concerning originality.
My advice for the op is to buy an assembly manual, it'll give you diagram after diagram as to what the factory built. It also gives the correct wiring diagram and ground wire connections, invaluable!

Just a note on the 138 markings. When I took my heater box cover off to paint and the blower motor out for repair on my car the original 138 markings were on the firewall section that was hidden by the cover. So I would think the firewall markings could be just about anywhere depending upon plant..

Not sure of the power steering pressure hose that you are using; but I think the original is routed quite differently than Keith's photo. Maybe thats an old photo of Keiths.
