‘68 RS/SS legit?
« on: July 13, 2018, 10:05:18 PM »
Guys, care to take a look at this for me and tell me, before I hit the seller up for more photos of under the hood and under the rear, is there anything that stands out to you as not a real RS/SS?

I know it’s a resto’ but I don’t mind as long as it’s been done right and the price is right. Seems like the upholsterer had issues with the rear left corner of the drivers’ seat? Or is that normal?

Thoughts on the bookwork...is it enough? Does it count for anything?

I believe it was a forum member’s ex. May have been sold on couple times since. Rally wheels have disappeared, but I kinda like these ones.

Welcome to the forum. I'm not going to speculate on originality but that's beautiful and excellent options if real. You just don't see teal blue very often, I had a '68 with same colors long ago.

Does look good. Pics are not that great. I would look in person first.

It's been on ebay a couple of times over the past ten years.
From what I've seen, it appears real, fwiw.

It's also been on Craigslist several times.

Here was the latest:

Blue car.  Ebay reuses/redirects links now with other cars for sale once the auction is over.

The trim tag shows the bronze? And there's a pic of the door jamb that looks bronze, the description says black? And the pic looks blue or green? Lol that's why I'm asking.

You are still looking at the wrong car. Did you read where Ebay changes the link after the auction is over? This is the car:
