Default 1966 427/390 A/C Dipstick Tube

Does the 66 427/390hp (L36) with factory AC (C60) have a longer oil dipstick tube to clear above the AC hoses or same as the non AC cars?
I have checked both a standard 427 dipstick tube and it is buried under an AC hose - I suspect either the hose in the wrong spot or the longer tube is correct. Did not spot this in the Assembly manual or judging manual. Thanks!

For 67 427 AC cars used the same dip stick as heater cars. I think it was 68 or 69 GM started to use longer dip sticks for B.B. AC cars

65-69 big blocks all used the same dipstick and tube. The long tube was only used on 70-74 454's.
