Nice car, but he got the "pre-date" part wrong.

I see what he intended in using "predating" as the HCS first came out in 66 and CS in 68.

By grouping the fragments incorrectly, (the 251 HCS match to the 68 production numbers) a newb might be lead to think in model year 1968, the 251 HCS were built BEFORE all CS.

Wow, shortest list of options on a Marti Report that I have ever seen. The absolute lowest price 289-2V 1968 HCS likely sold.

A 4 speed would be a nice upgrade! A total bolt in. Uses the same clutch and same drive line. All you need is the 4 speed and linkage.
