Sorry if I gave bad info, my bad.
A few years back I got a 64 Polara that had a broken tube and went to the Dodge Dealer with the broken piece. The parts guy told me "same tube as the LA's" as he went back in the parts room, and walked out with a new tube that fit perfectly. Guess their was more research going on in the back round than I thought.

The dipstick tube turned out to be one of the biggest problems in my original rebuild. It was fractured and broke off while moving the engine around. Then the piece in the block was extremely difficult to remove. The machine shop started working on it and they had issues so I finished with them and brought it home and got it out after several days of "engineering". This was not the norm though. On a couple other poly's, and other engines, the dipsticks were very easy to remove. I even broke one new tube trying to get it back in place on the engine and had to get it out too. My final time I got a new one back in but it almost fractured too so I JB welded it in place and it will never come out ! I found that there were several different lengths of tubes available. In the end I bought one from the dealer which is PN 3418933 AG7G6TUBE-OIL L for $10 in about '06. This is the tube and dipstick ass'y. The tube was shorter but worked fine. I had to cut about 2" off the dipstick as I recall and recalibrate it. Easy to do though.
This was not the normal scenario though. So don't be unduly worried about the process but be aware it can go bad just like anything. Dang Murphy's Law!
