My friend wants to know if the chrome and black firewall in his engine compartment are incorrect?

All is correct if the car has the optional 230 cubic inch 155 horse power optional engine.
I can't read the decal on top of the air cleaner but it should state the above.
The standard engine was the little 194 CI 120 HP job.
The 230 was used in full sized cars with 140 HP. The optional Chevelle high performance 230 CI had a high lift cam and larger carburetor.
I had an almost new one with Power Glide and was a peppy little car. Even the dip stick was chromed.
Was a $43 option.

Plug wires ae incorrect.

The optinal 230 155 HP engine was also available in the Chevy II in 1964.
In 1965 the 230 engine was available but only in the 140 HP version.
