    Back again about the 1968 garage find

    I paid $1500 for a 1968 T-top garage find that has been garaged since 1987. I was just offered $3000 for it. It is a 4 spd not original 327 with minimal options.
    It needs COMPLETE restoration but...

    Well, one thing is IF I understand the codes correctly, it is not a 68 Vette motor. Code K0228FB. So is this a 11/22/68 327 /235HP? Just a basic 327? Shame.
    Carb is a tiny Holley L7456....

    It's been 40 some years since I had my 69. The handles on this Vette look like your picture. Did 69 look the same? No reverse lights in the taillights. I THOUGHT in the late 60s that GM moved the IGN...

    As soon as I walking in the garage, I saw the "STINGRAY" script on the fenders and thought it was a 69 also. Once I checked the title and VIN# on the windshield post, I knew it is a 68. VIN...

    Found the title. Now that I have it, I am less likely to consider parting it out. I would really like to sell it as a 34 year old garage find rather than chop it up even though I could make more...

    Oh, another question. It has a temp Delaware tag on it for 1986. I believe years ago anyway, New Jersey only required a registration to sell a vehicle. Not sure if it's still that way but does...

    Have to ask. I had those pipes on my 67. Took a girl to the prom and when she got out, it fried her dress to her leg. Spent the night in the ER and never made it to the prom.
    Any issues with you...
  9. out of garage so here's a couple picts. of the 68

    This 68 has no title but I'm fairly confident that when/if the DMV reopens, I should be able to get one.
    My question is, not having any personal connection to this car and, sorry to admit, I am...

    [QUOTE=douglasamariani;1196486]
    The build sheet usually can be found on top or the side of the gas tank. Sometimes even under the back rug. The
    "STINGRAY" script started on the 69.

    That's...

    As someone stated, the VIN # is on the windshield post. It was a little tough to read but I'm fairly sure if I decoded this correctly[6 # is an 8], it is a towards the end of the run, 1968 not a 69?...

    I thought disc brakes require a deeper offset wheel then drums?
    I was just asking about the style. I know the 67 was added. My fired up 69 was an L88 with that style hood until my FRIEND backed over...

    Another ?. I have Chevy 5 x 4.75 wheels on my old wagon and I have spares with tires. I need to put something on the Vette to move it. What is the bolt pattern? Did it have disc brakes on the rear,...

    It is sitting on all flats so I wasn't able to get under even a little or pull it out of the garage. I did feel the frame up over the axles and I didn't feel any rust. Again, It's been well over 40...
