Saturday I bought another 68 project.This car seems to have some stange options to me. The color is JJ which is rally green. I was told it had a 327 in it, which is long gone. Has the original 3 speed transmission which is a floor shift with console & gauge package, also has a factory tic toc tac with 5000 redline. power steering, std black interior, deluxe wheel. I have never seen a 3 speed floor shift with factory gauge set up. Car is apart but looks to be complete except motor. have the bell housing and clutch, shifter, rear bumper with guards.  Have not had a chance to check out what ratio is in the 10 bolt. does have multi leaf.

Does anybody out there have or know of one that is like this?
Thanks JW

car is still on the trailer. I will be unloading it today & going thru all the boxes of parts. He said he didn''t have any paper work except the title with the 2nd owners name on it. Have not looked in the console or glove box yet. Thought the gauge package was strange for a plain car. Maybe it had a 350 in it like your freinds. The story is the car was bought in Robertsville ohio from a lady that bought it new, he drove it thru high school and decided to do a complete restoration, took the car all apart, the guy I bought it from is his buddy, who bought it to finish but never got it done. been in storage for 10 years.

Something's not adding up. Multileafs and a 10 bolt in 68?

Thats what is has. The code on the axle is PA which is a 3.08 peg leg. The springs are brand new so they have been changed. I will look at the perch's better today, It also has a remote mirror on the drivers side, in very nice shape. Inside door panel needs replaced but I will keep it to use as a templet to cut hole in new one. Also found brand new GM window fuzzys for both doors in the car. Body does have some prior body work on it that will need to be redone. Over all good solid car.

Does the date after the PA code match the build date?

Kurt you are right. It should have a mono leaf on it. The guy bought new 5 leafs and put on it. I can correct that perty easy.

Anybody else out there have a rally green 68?
