1968 HCS 390 S Code
Database needs a few more horsepower, lost my description. Will give it another go.

Basics are a '68 HCS, Presidential Blue, 3-spd automatic C-6 tranny, gearing 3.25, rebuilt at ~90k and again ~129k miles, full on-chassis NOS restoration with a hats-off paint job with all ghost striping; re-dipped chrome; stored since... minus a few cob-blowing sessions.

Nearly all original minus a few bobs and ends: switched out the factory choke and portions of the p/s and exhaust and starter drive gear for various mechanical reasons. HCS side scoop decals thanks to Bob Teets, cheers Bob.

Deluxe interior, black; NOS headliner and vinyl top skin, definitely not concours but as good a survivor as we've seen in many a show - never been shown by the way.

The original 390 is bored .60 over and we spent the better part of a year balancing and tuning that and the C6 clutch packs; old girl can idle at 200-300 rpm (and doesn't always notice when you remove the keys as a result).
Fresh out of the paint booth
