Is it all original, all numbers matching?

and when was the resto done and was it a complete frame off and is the color the original color code?

It has the original body panels and paint code. The block is original matching #. Frame off restoration in 2003. Most of the interior has been kept original. I have inter door panels and other parts. I never replaced them because I liked the look of what was there, but they go with the car. The car was originally bought here in Jasper, GA. Before 2002 it was stored in a barn for 17 years with another aging Mustang.

So I assume that the heads, etc and the tranny are not matching then?

I am interested as I had this same car in high school, but only if it is ALL numbers matching and ALL original at the price you are asking as that price is at the very top of the scale for full matching numbers 68's.

MM, This is off of NADA. This Camaro is well above average "20 footer" by a long shot and closer to high retail. I met a guy in the town next to me who paid over $25k for a matching # 68 that needs restoration.

The trans is not matching. I know it came out of a vett. I'm not sure about the heads. The engine was completley rebuilt by professionals. I could ask my mech, he only works on 1st generation Camaros for more info about it if you are still interested. I do have all of the resto paper work somewhere! I put it all away a couple of years ago and to be honest I'm only a fluid and filter changing mechanic so.......

Good luck with your search! These cars are a blast. I'm running out of room and time for toys.
