Very cool.  First-gen domination, I love it.  Thanks for posting that, James.

There are three ways to go with the motor mounts. Actually four if you want to go with a solid mount. There are valid reasons for using the original mount with no recall cable. Give the original poster the info and let him make the final decision. That is how I see it but obviously you don't. There's no need to bicker back and forth anymore about this as far as I'm concerned.

I recognize that name. Welcome to CRG, Mr. Hanson.

There are a lot of guys who come here to learn about originality and who also like to restore their car to how it rolled off the assembly line. To have two CRG guys bashing that stuff and dissuading somebody from using it, I don't get it. Yes, myself and others have used stock style motor mounts and timing gears/chains in some of our cars and not had a problem. If I was going to drive something hard and didn't have to have it 100% assembly line correct because I wasn't going to show it, the interlocking mount is a good way to go for insurance.

So do you have a 3 point harness and an airbag?

Thanks.  The '68s are great cars and of course I still love the '67s.  I'm looking forward to getting this car running.

Thanks, guys.  Yes, I did also buy some parts from Merle's estate sale but not nearly as much as my friends did.

Nice score, Austin. What a great car. I have a friend with two early Van Nuys Zs, built late October '68. The cool thing is they are sequential serial numbers.

It's going to be a fun car I will not be afraid to drive. No worries about wounding an original engine. It will not be 100% stock but will be period correct for late '60s/very early '70s. It will run headers with no smog and I have an original design Hurst shifter for it. There will likely be a few other goodies but I have NOS stock Z valve covers for it and will run the stock Z air cleaner. It is a non-spoiler car, which is a look I prefer. I have dated DF wheels and a few sets of mags to change up the look if I feel like it.

Thanks, Tim. Just the original BU 12-bolt with 4-leaf springs. I bought a CE engine for it from a guy who used to drive the parts delivery truck for Dana back when he was 18 years old.

I got a '68 from Merle's estate. It was an original LeMans blue '68 Z with 714 interior, repainted black somewhere along the line. An 07B car, VIN 124378L347646 , the NCRS report says it was sold new at Dana Chevrolet in South Gate, California. Title looked like Merle got it in 2001. Blue CA license plate ( 388UEG ) shows registration expired in 1989. I don't know any history prior to Merle's ownership but would love to find out. The car had slot mags prior to the 5-spoke mags.

Very cool! Glad to see you get it done.
