Looking at a '68 RS
Hi Everybody. I joined this group in the hope of getting help in making a good decision on buying a nice-looking '68 RS up here in Canada. According to the 3rd owner and what I could glean from the VIN, this car left the factory painted a light turquoise blue/green with a 327, 2-speed powerglide, column shifter. The car was restored and painted Fathom Blue in 2000. New black vinyl roof, Gaps and fit are good. Minor rust on a rear quarter was replaced with welded metal. No body filler on car. Transmission changed to Turbo 350 with floor console. 2500 miles on re-built, original 327, mild cam. stock exhaust manifold, custom dual pipes. original 10-bolt rear end, Tight front-end, re-done suspension, factory a/c (needs replacement) interior re-done, front brakes converted to disc. One hide-away headlight does not completely open.
For some reason photos of the car won't upload. Files may be too large, but the body and paint look very good...not perfect, of course, but still very nice, no obvious issues. Long-distance driver, no problem. The asking price is $35,000.00 Canadian. Does that seem reasonable? Thanks for any questions or comments.
