Most of the documentation looks decent, as does the car itself. Two things I question about the car - the REALLY thick undercoating on the underside of the car - no mention on the window sticker, and the trunk splatter paint looks the same, really think and rough. The claim is "no rust", but the one view of the underside of the trunk mat shows a lot of rust stains that don't show on the paint. This car was sold new in PA, now for sale in CT, if it's been in New England all it's life, it had better had been garaged all it's life, never driven in the winter, or it's liable to have some hidden rust issues under all that undercoating and heavy fill primer/paint.

Otherwise, it's a pretty vehicle. I like the fact that all the take-offs are with the car. It's expensive for a '68, even with a likely reproduction cross ram, but I've seen worse cars sell for higher prices at BJ. And I happen to like OO Corvette Bronze RS cars -

Steve

I remember this car from the magazine 'Camaro VS Mustang' that is shown on the ebay ad. Value on this '68, I do not know. What I do know, cars like this are almost always over priced when being sold by a wheeler dealer pitchmen. There is a 20-30% mark up on the commission. It appears the car was in California for a long while, so it may be rust free. Deep undercoating was normal on East Coast/Rust Belt region cars, so I don't see an issue with it. My wealthy car collector car friends always say "No documentation, no premium". Btw, on the other website along with the Camaro, is a Mustang II for a list price of 39K. Really? That says it all.
Just another T/A fanatic. Current lifelong projects:

1969 Mustang Fastback w a Can-Am 494 (Boss 429)

" Deep undercoating was normal on East Coast/Rust Belt region cars, so I don't see an issue with it."

I don't see an issue with the undercoating, I do have an issue with the statement "No rust anywhere", where thers's smoke, there's usually fire.

No mention in the ad of the car soending time anywhere - I guess stranger things have happened than going from PA to California back to CT -

Pic of the trunk mat follows - notice the rust bubbles on the rib under the newer spatter paint, rust stains on the underside of the mat. Rusty bolt in the trunk, too. My problem is not with the provenance of the car, rather the claims of the dealer/broker. Caveat emptor -

Yeah the rust on the mat normally matches what was on the metal at some point. If the rust was not completely removed then it's just lurking under the spray waiting for a chance to show it's ugly face.
