Get the VIN #. Maybe its in our previous registries. If its not, a Marti Report is imperative ( to the point of no Marti, no sale) For $20+/- you can get a basic report Fax'd within 24 hours. Cheap insurance, for verification.
As far as the car itself, I didn't see anything superficially wrong that couldn't be corrected relatively easy. Closer inspection is necessary: body, frame, torque boxes, cowls. (Pour a glass of water in each side of the cowls and see where it runs out. It should exit at the bottom rear of each front fender. If it runs out on the floor in the car- BIG problem- the cowl(s) leak)

Here is the scoop guys.
The car is Original Metal. All of the inner wheel wells are factory Tack Welded in and have never been replaced. No floor panels replaced. Everything is very solid and CLEAN. Has the Purple wire label in the trunk for the tail lights and Marti report came in as a GTCS. The car was bead blasted then painted with an epoxy primer and Dupont Paint in 2002. Inner rear quarter panels in the trunk still have the Rubber Drains installed. All lines and gaps are even and straight. I do need some help. It looks like whomever did the work on the Grill did replace it but from the picture from the California Registry book I think they used a 67 grill and put the Marcal Fog Light Brackets in upside down. Does anyone have close up photo's that they could send me from the Outside and also inside the grill between the radiator and grill so I can see if these are installed correctly or even the correct brackets?
It looks like I will buy the car now that I know it is original and would appreciate some help if you could. Also Original owners from California did confirm never any accidents in the 15 years they owned the car.
Thanks Guys.

If you're happy, I'm happy. (Hope you didn't pay too much) When you get the car bring it on up to NC and I'll be glad to help/show you how to make it correct for a '68.
