Found a 68 CS in a Garage in Illinois....

Hey, I saw this site and thought I would take a look. I found this car in a garage in Illinois... if the owner of the car is on here I apologize... but it hasn't moved in a very, very long time so just wondering what's special about these cars. It seems like a cool little car... but I'm a diehard mopar guy, got a few of them. But I have found tons of mustangs and such, this is just the rarest one I have found.





And here are the other cars in yard pictures.

if it has a 390 or 428 motor then it is pretty valuable. Looks like it has traction bars but no dual exhaust. If it is a 289 it COULD be worth from 5-12k depending on rust issues. Find out what motor it has.

Were did you see traction bars? I can see what looks like shackles sticking down on one side. With all that crap piled on the car seems like somebody doesn't care much about it. What a shame. :(

The bigger question...

Am I the only one sitting here wondering WHY in the Devil (sorry;-) someone's taking pictures of a CS in a garage (looks like residential) where he doesn't know who the owner is? Just curious.

Did you check out his link?? This guy is a busy photographer!
BTW, is the dash VIN the best way to check engine size? There is a beater CS I've seen around here and if I see it again I want to check in out. The guy might not realize what he has if its a S or R code.

Hum... I thought it was a Shelby... then I talked to the owner and he told me it was a California Special.

And the car is hiding out here in Dekalb Illinois.
