A word of caution here.  You have to physically remove and inspect every item to make sure you have what you think you have.   But why, you may ask? 

     Simple.  When I began to work on the 110 engine that came in the '69 I got to replace my '65 car that was broadsided IN MY DRIVEWAY, I came across some totally bizarre stuff.  The block code was RH which translated to a '65-'67 110/pg, I believe. 

     Even though the car came to me with an alternator on it, imagine my surprise when I removed it to find a

GENERATOR oil filter adapter!!!!!!!!!  Then, upon closer inspection, to make the alternator fit they 'hogged' out the alt. mounting holes until it did!!!!  The engine also came with a '102' distributor installed instead of the 110 one!!!

Like I said, the only way to know for sure is to physically check.
