seen this 68 Z on ebay if anyone is looking
« on: May 03, 2014, 02:19:18 PM »
This might be the first link of a car I have put on here. looked like an original paint z with documents. Thought someone might be interested. I have seen this place have ads before like they sell your car for you. Always wondered how that works and why pay someone to list your car on ebay!

Impressive car, throughout. Great documentation, 05E California car (Norwood, but California docs), non-console, showing 54K miles. Awfully complete - this one has been stored (near salt air ?) for along time. Probably original rally wheels, too - look at the 15X6 narrow trim rings. 8300 VIN's away from my early June car. Also looks like a 116 smog pulley, hard to tell, but has the appearance.

This one will make an excellent candidate for somebody - if I had the wherewithal, I'd buy it in a Heartbeat -

Regards -

I thought the same thing, a lot of good things on the car as long as its not rotten. odd how the paint has come off it.

Lots of receipts, can't really make out what was done. Well taken care of early in it's life it appears. Shame when it hit the time line were someone stopped loving it. Interior looks in great shape. Rust....probably covered with a plastic tarp trapping moisture....gotta breath. If all is what's claimed ,great project for the right price. A lot less 68's built ,and how many are still surviving with the original engine and drive train ? Yup--partial to 68's and 67's.

Would be neat to review the car closely as it does have a lot going for it. Yup, we are partial to 68Z's..... :)

That's a bad deal with the place that lists it. They probably know nothing. Maybe they give owners number. Somebody on here should be near there!

Maybe the saltwater starts breaking the paint down over the years ,and with moisture trapped. I've seen cars with bad paint prep begin rusting like that....half @#$ job priming in high humidly. Just a thought ,right now I'm an expert on lawn mowing ! 500 hours on the mower's meter, 95 on the boat's which I've had longer if that's saying anything! My buddies get a kick out of that. They kid me knowing I'd rather detail it than take it out ,never docked. SBC powered of course.

How's your motor coming Darrell? I guess I can hijack my own thread!

Yup, salt air.  Some of the docs show the original owner lived in Pebble Beach, CA.  Right on the California Coast!

Ha,got about that in a low mileage 20 yo's college tuition this year.

Really like to see that car saved and restored ,can't look at the pics anymore....you all know the conversation took place were " I'm going to get to fixing it up" as it sat decaying. I'd like to see you have that car Darrell, know you have a sweet spot for 68's ,might as well have a pair !

Darrell not only does "the picture taker need to be fried" they also listed the exterior color as BLACK....
" He who knows naught, knows not that he knows naught"  It's not you...  It's just the way my brain is wired.

Its coming.  Motors out, on the stand and everything looks good at this point.  Clayed the tops of the pistons today and the P to V clearance is about 0.050"  Still scratching my head as to how the problem happened.  My thinking is the springs may be close to coil binding at above idle or the springs are too leak for the cam.  Next will be to have the heads looked over and a new set of springs installed.  Then it'll go back together.  Cam, lifters, cylinder walls and bearings all look good.  Still debating on whether or not to reuse the current cam or go with a solid roller.  Time will tell. 8)

I'd like to see you have that car Darrell, know you have a sweet spot for 68's ,might as well have a pair !

Yes I do have a soft spot for the 8's.  Especially the early Z's with the 302 emblems but I still would love to have this one as well.  Maybe down the road once I finish the red car then I can start the search for another one.  Little lady wants a 55 or 57 first though..  Trying to convince her that 55's are the better of the 2.  Not to mention on favorite tri-5.   ;)

Darrell not only does "the picture taker need to be fried" they also listed the exterior color as BLACK....

Shouldnt that equal a 5K discount for incorrect info..??..   ;D

I would love to buy this car, butternut yellow too! Just one question, is that a double-strike on the 'V' of the pad stamp? Not suggesting anything amiss, and maybe it's just the way the photo displays on my iPad.
