Claimed to be 'straight as a string'.

I think this one looks better than it is. It sort of looks like a back yard or a dealer refresh.

No hood pins
No seat belts
No radio
Twist gas cap
No washers
No hood wiring
Black underside paint bomb

A magnet may come in handy when inspecting this one.

Other red flags:

Standard interior seats and door cards with the wrong window cranks paired with deluxe interior interior dash bezels.

Non-1968 steering wheel.

No Marti report shown, VIN # or door tag shown to allow verification of authenticity or configuration.

Honestly, smells like a clone. Buyer beware.

Also no power steering or brakes. A little uncommon in my experience for a 302 car.

I didnít see a VIN disclosed, so you must have some personal knowledge of the car or seller to know it is in your registry.

I show it as C168611. The Marti Report is in the eBay auction ad.

The car is far from concours, but it's a nice car. It's in my town and I have seen it twice now. The hood pins have been installed as well as the radio since the pics. It is vin'd as a C code, but he dropped a 302 in it. :( He had some offers from the Ebay add, but couldn't close a deal. If anyone is interested, I'd be glad to help out if you'd like.
