Eric,
He has had that car for a long time . If your thinking of buying it , I would ask for the paper work.
You can have the nubers run on it , but it may run you about 1,500.oo to do so .
If He does not have the paper work , then i would skip it , unless he has already paid to find the orginal Documentation.

My personal favorite is the 68 RS/SS painted Daytona Yellow but listed as Butternut Yellow with all numbers matching but has a 327. 327 SS???? Uh-huh.

The car is not real. It is a 68 but a COPY of a 67 Motion car. In one of their old ads in I think Traderonline they even had it listed as a Clone. Call them up and ask them.

It looks like someone tried to copy the 1967 Motion drag car but they used a 1968 Camaro? here is a picture of the real 67 Motion drag car that was a NHRA and AHRA record holder. That copy does not even have the correct speed parts that were used by Motion at that time.
