1968 Convertible special order
« on: July 07, 2009, 05:35:24 PM »
I have A 68 Converible and the trim tag reads:
Special Mask
Special Paint
Special Order
Has anyone ever hear of this and is there any way of knowing why it was marked this way?
Thanks patnd2

I assume it's on a red SS350 car?

I've seen that tag before. The only thing that comes to mind is that the body was a service part.

Does it have the partial VIN's on the body?

Yes it is on A red car. I just bought this car, it is marked ss but I don't belive its A real ss.
I have not looked to see what the partial #'s read yet.
What can I learn from the partails?

Mainly if the body has partial VINs on it.

Here's a bigger picture of your tag.

The tag was discussed before on the old version of this forum, but that's not accessible right now. It didn't have a lot of info from what I recall.

10 or 12 bolt? Do you know the axle code (or engine code)?

It is A 10 bolt, I will try and get the axle code. The engine is not the original so that won't help. How long ago was this car on this forum?

As I said above, the thread didn't have a lot of info in it.
