1968 Z28 - Need some advice
« on: August 29, 2017, 10:55:58 AM »
I'm curious to get some advice on value. Have ran across a 68Z28.
The car is still owned by the original owner. He still has all the docs. Window sticker etc.
The born with transmission and axle/housing are still there. The original MO engine is long gone. The car has a DZ engine currently.

15,000 original miles and British Green mostly original paint. Original interior as well is mint. It was a race car and parked in the 70's. Solid original car, but just curious as to what you all think on value with matching number engine gone.

you say 'race car'??   What sort of race car?   scca or drag strip type?   What is/was modified to be a race car??  What original parts are missing or *damaged* aside from the engine? photos would certainly help us help you.. :)

No rust.  Super solid.

It was a drag car.  Everything other than the engine and the Muncie shifter is there.  Has a 69 Hurst shifter.  Original exhaust is now back on the car.
Spoiler was added. My time was limited yesterday so no photos yet.  Even has an original cowl plenum air cleaner.

What mod's were done ? Cage,  tubbed, dash or trans tunnel cut up, interior gone?  Lots of unknowns for even a gues-stimation.

Ran in stock classes. No cage or anything. Never cut up. Tunnel and fenders never messed with. Dash and interior is mint. Wood wheel and dash trim.

Paint is good.. By no means is it perfect or close to a restored car, but it wouldn't get painted.

This is sounding better all the time. How could so many '68 Z's have been hiding all these years?

Value is hurt with the NOM, but condition seems to be making up for that!

Because everyone wants a 69....   :)

Run the vin through every search service you can find...
A friend of mine contacted a 68 Z owner with his original engine and the guy said he has a DZ in it and didn't care to acquire the born with engine, (5-7 years ago) so you never know.
