Added Another '68 To My Fleet

I just bid & got a '68 conv on E-bay. Gold with a gold interior. 302 w/A/T & P/S. And get this - from an estate sale - with 4,400 miles on it. All original. Can't wait!!

Sweet
Post pics when you get it

You may make it without friends; but with them, you can do anything.

Congrats Neil, sounds like a real find. BTW, the package arrived. Thank you very much. They look like they should clean up pretty well. Have fun with your new addition. Mike

Congratulations, Neil!!! Good things to good people

HP numbers are good and all, but they're like asking someone how much they can bench. What difference does it make, if I can still kick your ass.

Neil,

Congratulations. Did you go look at it before you bought it, or buy it sight unseen?

Bought it sight unseen. Photos were just OK, but I spoke with the seller (a broker) and he gave me a good description, and his feedback rating of 100% over several years bolstered my confidence.
I bought my C/S the same way - thru E-bay, sight unseen. When it was delivered, it knocked my socks off as far as condition & documentation. The previous owner had done a first class restoration (all correct) and included a filing box with reciepts, logbook of work accomplished, and a gazillion photos of the process. Even a photo album. Needless to say, I was ecstatic. I've added dual GT exhaust, SS wheels, and just tweaked a few things.
The convertable should be here next week. I'll be all over it checking things out. Maybe add P/B, but keep the car original. Happy Days!!

Neil
