Ebay item 9/14/14
Opening bid US $19,680 reserve not met, no bids 9 days left in auction. Buy it now price $67,500. 110k miles.
California car originally. "j68" plate riveted next to number plate (only California did this when they were new) Beautiful darker opalescent silver blue 8 of 10. Dark blue vinyl top with clear rear window 8 of 10. Bumpers rechromed 9 of 10. New rubber moulding around bumpers. Wheels 8+ of 10. Tires have like new tread. Series 1 spinners on the wheels. Car runs VERY strong. Flame thrower coil. Electronic ignition. Oil and filter just changed. New plugs. Compression is 155 165 163 155 160 165. Excellent compression. The clutch, synchros in the transmission, and brakes are all excellent. Very nice dark blue leather seats, new foam seat bottoms, new dark blue door panels, new door panel chrome, new dark blue front carpets, new trunk boards and new trunk cardboard sides, rear, and hardura mat in trunk. Front end is tight with no bouncing or squeaks. 68 was the first year of the "k" gearbox instead of the "j" gearbox on series 1s. j and k are the first letters of the gearbox number. It shifts Noticeably smoother than the series 1s and is a real pleasure to drive. Of course it has dual fans on the radiator. Never gets even to center of temp guage. Series 1 looking seats without headrests that Recline and are more comfortable than series 1s. 68s have the same exact bonnet as late 67s, so glass headlight covers can be retrofitted. I have had this done on a late 67. It costs about $600 in parts per side and $600 labor per side. There is no painting involved. Engine was rebuilt about 20,000 miles ago and it is Strong. This car has FANTASTIC oil pressure--60 lbs oil pressure at road speed with the car warmed up! This car runs as fast with 2 carbs as 3 carb cars. I drove it last night with the top down and it put a big smile on my face as I accelerated through the gears and negotiated the curves. It is a true joy to drive!
