Oh, Uncle Rob. Have to call BS on any manual transmission X code, on 390-2V, in 1968.

Interesting that the warranty card is for 5 years. Was that a Canada thing, or could someone get an 'extended warranty' in 1968? Have only seen 2 year warranty cards.

What do you'll think a pony like this should bring?

I would think $30-34k. Looks like it has good bones, should have pictures of the undercarriage.

IMO it is pretty difficult to value any collector car without a first hand inspection. A total re-spray and engine rebuild with only 44K total miles makes me wonder about the real history of this car.

[QUOTE=CougarCJ;107058]Oh, Uncle Rob. Have to call BS on any manual transmission X code, or 390-2V, in 1968.

I think CougarCJ was clarifying X code as 390 2V in regards to the manuals

Correct, no stick shift X codes in 1968.

Had me wondering. Originally he said no stick shift X code or 390-2v but I see he edited the post and changed or to on.

How special is an X-code as compared to, say a S-code? In equal condition, which is more desirable? I have contacted the dealership and I am awaiting a response on what they are looking to get and, I will see about some under-pics.

I don't see much of an issue with a paint and engine freshening. Yeah, 44k is low but due to the age, this is not wholly out of line.

I definitely agree it is not wholly out of line but it still requires first hand investigation and scrutiny. I have seen way too many "freshened up" cars that are complete nightmares underneath the lipstick and makeup. I can already tell you the re-spray is low quality based on seeing overspray on the door rubbers and such. On this particular car, due to the location, I would look for signs of serious rust out repair and quality of the repair/restoration if applicable.
