The reason I asked is my brother picked a barn find 68. It last ran in 98 and per inspection slips only logged 1000 miles from 93 to 98. It has 327 210, PG, PS, PB, Factory Air, Teal blue, Black interior. Appears untouched except Alternater and Battery. 102,000 miles, Minimal rust. We installed a battery, fresh gas, 2 quarts trans fluid, brake fluid, and drove it down the road. The air even works with no added freon. It does need restoring but everything is there. I have no pics but what do you guys think the value might be? The interior is near perfect.

I too have a 1968 Convertible, RS 327/210hp w/ factory air and PG trans along with PS PB that has just completed a frame off rotisserie restoration and is back in my garage waiting for the dash, interior and top to be installed.  My vehicle was a good candidate for its second restoration, as it only needed a new trunk pan and rear floor pans as I had replaced all sheet metal in the mid 80 when GM parts were cheap.  In its current condition I had no trouble insuring it for $50K.  Impossible to put a fair value on yours without pictures and determining the extent of rust, but I can tell you unless you can do the body work yourself, restoration can very expensive.

The 2bbl carb is also unique to AC cars and can be difficult to locate, so I hope you still have the original one.

If you car is original I would be very interested in see original pictures.

Mike, I just checked out the pics of your restoration, nice job! Its not too often you see someone work out the details of a non-high performance model. Good for you! Can't wait to see it back on the road.

The refrigerant valve right on top?
The 68 Service Manual is a must if you are restoring air.

The video I posted of the engine on the dyno was riot, since it was a base 327 engine.  Glad I did the dyno, as full line was clogged and the carb had a few minor issues and I was able to touch up the engine before reinstalling in the engine bay.  At least it is broken in and ready to go
