1 of 241

This showed up at my buddy's shop. Guy bought it from an estate in Washington. Been off the road since 1983.

Everything is there except the carb. 396, 4-speed, 12 bolt.

The paint is not original. I don't know what the original color is but maybe that's what makes it 1 of 241.
That's just what was relayed to me and the original owner had a personalized tag for it (in the picture) that says 1 of 241

There is no single RPO code totaling 241, if it is a 375HP 396 w/alum heads there were 272 of those. As for paint, Fathom Blue was 1% of all '68 cars so that is a bit over 2300 of them. I don't think there was a way of being able to break down combinations of options so the plate was most likely based on mis-information...

Car is still very cool!!
