with possibly a leaking heater box, because it's been by-passed.
This in a 67/68, because I see power disc brake setup?

Bad photo angle for identification. From this angle, it could be 289, 302, or even 5.0. Show us the harmonic balancer.

And yes, I would not drive the car until an export brace is installed. Without it, the front end is dangerously unstable. Use the good one from Scott Drake.

First cover that hole in the passenger valve cover with a PCV valve and hose, or a plug, whatever the engine needs, to keep water/dirt etc out.

That's the oil filler tube. The valve covers are on the wrong sides.

Thanks for your comment! Photo of harmonic balancer I will show you as soon as possible) and about export brace I understand you! I will order a new one from Scott Drake. If to be honest I was driving this car just 2 minutes in my parking, and I can't to compare it is driven characteristics.

Yes, it is 68 by documents, and after dissembling I understood that this car was assembled from the parts which was under the arm. That is why I can't understand is it original or from the other car.

Also get rid of the "firestarter" fuel filter and rubber hose... Right-side valve cover tube can be pulled and replaced with proper grommet to connect PCV.

1967 and later power steering pump.
1967 and later power steering bracket
1965 - 1967 289 harmonic balancer
Aftermarket carburetor
Aftermarket Intake Manifold
Open aftermarket valve cover could just get another fill cap, push on.
Need to fix gas line, leaker and safety hazard.
Appears distributor is missing vacuum advance or has been converted to a dual point, but the hole should not be there.

1967 1968 shock caps, power booster, etc.

Without other clues, most likely a 1967 289 with some aftermarket parts (valve covers, air cleaner, distributor, intake and carb) and lots of small easy to fix wiring and line issues.
