" During my time with this car I have accumulated some parts  to be sold after the car and will be offered to the new owner first to assist in the future restoration."    Huh? THAT, can mean anything.....

"Most of us bought them when they were 3 or 4 years old and they were just used cars."    and by the late 70's--80's they were mostly "used" up. Which should come as no surprise that some of these glossed over mud buckets coming out of Muscle car dealerships may have been warmed over several times. Seems like more and more horror stories are making the various forums.

Funny you bring up a winged car, not going to say the price, but a buddy of mine wanted to buy a "field car" to fix up in the late 70's....his Dad said absolutely not, " junk Mopar gas guzzler" One of my high school cars was a 68 GTO vert. Clean car by today's standards, bought it for really next to nothing. Cheap enough were mowing lawns after school took it home. (made payments to the owner)

Relatively speaking, a clean Z tended to hold a good price ( based on what I have been offered over the years) Mine was sold in 76 (to my Father) to buy a TR7. Guy wanted to by it back as early as 79,the answer was always no. I got it from Dad in the 80's....very fair price...with stipulations.

The "money shot" is before you unload it off the trailer when you get it home....do post !---steve

Good for you, welcome Smiley


Price was between you two...

Nice to hear of another one finding a good home, and not rotting away.

I like everything about that car, and the story behind it. Current bid is  about 2 years worth of kid's tuition, so I'm out. ( should be higher IMO)


This is one I'd like to keep an eye on the next few years...would look so good next to the Ash Gold 68...maybe for my wife, like the original intent.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays !

Wife and I are finally taking a long overdue vacation in a few weeks, then, hopefully some time should free up and back to the Z.

love that color.

carb should be vacuum secondary. Big deal with the z's are engine-trans-rear end. BORN with. Sounds like you have quite a bit of original sheet metal that is repairable. Glass date codes--carpet ? Seat belts ?   If you are serious about this car, shoot me an email and I'll send you the dates on a Z that ran the line a few weeks after yours. Chick is a wonderful source also. As Danny, who just purchased one. Well...anyone here owning a 68 Z are partial to them. ( those 69 Hugger Orange  guys are a motely crew ,stay away...LOL !)

"Janobyte - sorry for being dense, but what are you saying regarding production dates vs engine dates?  04D is last week of April, and a 4/23 engine date would put engine assembly date a week previous, and that would be the same case for the car I'm looking at, engine assembly date on week prior to the car's production date.  Am I correct? "

You are not dense, but are correct. Block ,heads ,trans , rear end date codes should be close but PRIOR to the car in question's 04A. It may sound obvious, but could be overlooked. And if you research some examples of legit cars on this site, you'll see just how close dates are. Also browse Ebay and take note of the (crazy) asking price on parts....battery hold down strap/bolt and valve stem caps may be 1/2 the asking price. LOL.

 ( how's it run by the way ?)

Click on my user info, recent posts #7. I have a few of my date codes posted.

My Z is an O4D,   302: 0423

Your car of interest: 04A    302: 0329

All the previous posts on this thread are correct Smiley so I'm not quoting.

Bottom line is your plans for it, along with pocket depth. IMO, based on pics  (what is just on the surface), priced high, plus it's been on the market for awhile. Buddies may be bidding it up. But, if numbers check,(big in the plus column) it is a 68 Z. Investment probably a poor choice of words, but car worth keeping if done properly, with a reasonable initial purchase price.

POP ? rather have the car then visa versa, it may pop up(no pun)

I'm in Bullitt's camp. larger wheel wells. you can fit a little more meat under 69's then 7's or 8's I think.  Other then that love the lines, just one of those cars that don't have a bad angle. I like the vent windows on 67's.

I ran a 26 x 8 on a 15" corvette rally. in a 68 with staggered shocks. I'm at work now, cant give you backspacing.  This was the recommendation from Harlow Tire at Norwalk. Safety first.

gave enough bite to just pull the front wheels with a 5 grand stall/4:88's. foot braking

Will double check for you tomorrow when I get home.
