Red GT/CS in Texas on eBay

I sent the seller a note asking if I can see the car this weekend. I hope to get my car back tonight and Killeen is 200 miles from here so that would make for a perfect break-in-the-motor trip.

If anyone wants a detailed inspection let me know.

no bids for me. no documents to prove mileage. I am guessing they want close to their buy it now price.

I'd love to learn more about this car, I am looking for a 68 390 with auto, air and even like red. So if you are going to look at it - I would appricate any information that you care to share.

Thanks, Doug

Just got back from Killeen. I have a lot of pictures to resize so they won't be posted for a while. I should be able to get the pictures and a report uploaded by tonight.

Basically, we need the Marti report to answer a lot of the questions.

The car is beautiful but it also has minor issues. Here are a few bullet points:
it has the original ugly trunk mat that Scott likes
what seems to be an original AM/FM radio
upholstered quarter trim panels
deluxe interior
both consoles but the upper one was red at one time
Lucas lights
original cardboard taillight protectors
GT exhaust and hub caps
original air conditioning compressor
what seem to be all the original 390 parts
Auto
passenger side exhaust leak
tiny rust bubbles in the driver's door
clean, nicely primered, underside
power steering pump grinds - may be low of fluid
Incorrect screws attaching the taillight panel to the body
Driver's scoop recently hit an pulled away from the car
scoops have witness lines

And on and on. I'll write it all up. If anyone wants to talk about it before then call me at (832) 288-4179.

The seller did not receive his Marti report so he won't get it until after the end of the auctions, meaning he will probably re-list the car with the Marti posted.

Here are 2 of my favorite pictures.

Arlie,
I talked to the owner several weeks ago about the car. Some things I would have liked to see on the car would have been the original smog and original exhaust. A car with 9,000-original miles should still have the original exhaust. Don't know if you looked at the rear end, but the tag on it doesn't match the door tag...sort of strange.

Scott, the more I look at the pictures the more I think it's 109K with a restoration but I'll post the pictures and hopefully others will prove me wrong.

Here is the door data.
65A - T - 2A - 29U - 61 - 5 - U

The door VIN matches the dash VIN

You're right, the exhaust has been changed as have the shocks, and there is no smog. There is also red primer on one of the shocks and on an exhaust hanger. The car seems to have an 8" rear end.

Here are the 1st few pictures. On the last one note the painted-over chip on the door hinge, the separated dash pad, and the extra hole under the door light switch. A similar hole is on the driver's side.

- Contact paper on the lower console
- Chrome sill plate covers
- The door handle screw and the red bolt don't look quite right to me
- Has a tach and a clock. Note the foglight switch location
- Steering wheel has 1 double crack. The woodgrain center insert is perfect. The 3/16" filler on the inner portion of the wheel is missing.
- Upholstered quarter trim panels. 1st I've seen. Starting to separate from the panel at the top rear.
- Upper console doesn't fit too well. Note red spot
- Note lots of red around the lights

I'd have a hard time believing this car has 9,000-original miles on it. The driver's door has obviously been painted. The grain/texture appears to be worn off the steering wheel pad. That doesn't happen in 9,000-miles. It's a great and desireable car, but I wouldn't pay a premium for it based on it having 9,000-miles.

As a person who is searching for such a car I appreciate that Arlie took his time and is still taking time to assist all of us who are really intersested; thanks. It will be interesting to see the Marti report when it arrives.
