Nice looking-BUT- $40K for a 289, no PS, no PB, no AC.
The rear shackles indicate worn/weak rear springs & shocks, which would lead me to believe the front suspension is also worn out.
I would suspect that the $40K is influenced more by sentimental value rather than condition and market value. (I would start at $20K and negotiate downward from that value. But that's just me.)

What is on the center console between the seats that looks like it has a lot of buttons on it?

Appears to be a 4 speed, no smog though. Should have the Marti Report posted.

$40K. Wow!

Considering a 289, numbers matching with 40K original miles (according to the ad) was on ebay last week for $14.5K buy-it-now this $40K seems just a tad expensive. That one was an automatic with not as good paint but otherwise seemed comparable. The difference in price could buy a *really, really* nice paint job.

Having said that, there's one born every minute... just gotta find'em

The world stands aside to let anyone pass who knows where he is going.

Could be a case of... "Well dear I did put the car up for sale but no one offered to buy it. Guess we'll just have to keep it."

Or someone wants to ride the Barrett-Jackson and Russo Steele auction wave from last week.
Ad is posted in Phoenix, car is located in eastern Washington.

Not sure if anyone has been to Scottsdale during B-J week. The local classifieds are packed with old car for sale ads, and the weekly Pavillions car show gets crazy big, with all of the locals posting fat for sale prices on their cars. Lots of money and buyers in town, why not?

289 two barrel carb. My guess is a 3 speed vice a 4 speed. But I could be wrong. Color combo with the interior is very nice. Like Don said, you gotta love the aqua spring shackles. Kinda makes one wonder about the quality of the paint job if they can't take the time to cover them up. And they are a sure sign of sagging leafs which is common and a quick fix.

Overall a nice looking car from the pics. But not worth $40k and barely half that in todays market.

In the add, it states "This is 968 of 3867 that where Built in San Jose CA 04/1968". Just wondering how he figured that out? I don't think the Marti report states the sequence number our CSs where built (not VIN number)....at least mine does not.

Some folks like to get 'creative' with their ads. He's fishing for the big bucks, so it's rather difficult to take him too seriously.

I saw that too. Maybe he found a chalk mark somewhere on the car with the number "968".
