68 CS - make me an offer

I've just pulled (operative word) a 68 California Special (J Code, I believe) out of the barn. It doesn't run, but after years of sitting, it fired up briefly when I hot-wired it with some fresh fuel splashed into the carb. It sounded solid and raspy, but in dire need of restoration. I don't really know much about it, but from what I can tell over the last few weeks that I've been researching it, people like you all may put a hefty value on it. Make me an offer. I'm going to get some photos posted as soon as I can figure out how to do it. P.S. I confirmed the #s match the original paint and equipment, according to Marti's Auto works. I have the Marti report. Anybody interested?

Here is the information on the Marti Auto Works Standard Report:

Re:68 CS - make me an offer

hossboss,
You state it is in need of restoration, but is there any rust, how is the interior, what are the options, ie power steering, brakes, consoles, deluxe interior.
Does it have the "GT" option, the Marti report should state this? What are the colors, int/ext?

Re:68 CS - make me an offer

I tried to post a picture, but all my pictures are bigger than 100 KB so it wouldn't work. I guess I'll have to send to interested individuals seperately.

I'm in California, where else ;D

If you cant upload a picture because its bigger than 100kb, you should add it to the gallery because the picture doesnt have to be small in size to add it there.

Where did this guy go?!?!?! He taunts us with a CS (like Pavlov's dogs) then won't answer emails or forums? Sounds like a Chevy man to me!

If I had time to reply to you all, I would have time to fix up the 68 CS. Although I'd love to respond to you all, I just don't really have the time, sorry. I still have the car and I'm willing to find it a new home. I'm going to post my phone number (707) 839-3395, please only call if you are serious about buying. First $4400.00 takes it. It's an authentic "J" code (have Marti report) in decent shape with much potential. The only modifications are plexiglass covers over the headlights. The hood and bumpers are damaged from rolling into stuff while moving around, but it's never been in an accident. Some minor rust in one door and at two locations on pannels (probably an easy fix for somebody who knows something about body work). I thought about putting on e-bay, but that seems two complicated. The car is located in northern California. It has original black license plates, emblems, etc, but they could use some reconditioning. The Lucas fog lights are attached, but one lense is cracked. The brakes, trans, and engine do not run/work. I splashed gas into the carb and hot wired it and it started for a moment and sounded like it might make an enthusiast you know what right there in their trousers. If I don't sell it by the end of the year, I'm going to roll it into the back of the barn and leave it there for my grandkids to worry about in 20 or more years from now.
