Nice ride! Love those solid alloy rims. I also like that color, myself, but you can see in the engine compartment a bit of the original paint. Body looks good. Stock engine?

68 nova, upclose you can see it fading in a few places, just need to take it to swabs to get some new tires and then wait for the new plates, we're getting the old blue/yellow "old school" ones for it

When my brother & i got back from Vietnam, he bought a 1967 (red & black) Camaro SS350, 4 speed. She was a reel runner. :lol::lol::lol:

I bought a 1966 silver/grey Corvette Stingray 427, 4 speed. She was a reel runner too. :lol::lol::lol:

Sweet car, what find. Might think about keeping it stock/matching numbers means it's worth more. Amazing it still has wing vents in 1968. If you insist on a V8 (I like the idea) contact me I can put you in touch with a guy that can build a solid 383 stroker for a few more $$ than a crate.
