    Here's my two 68's. I've had the red one for 20 years. The drag car was my dad's and I inherited it after his passing 4 years ago. FB_IMG_1522029409272.jpg FB_IMG_1522029491327.jpg

    It was a 68 ss that hit my drivers side quarter panel in my 69 goat rag top over 30 years ago. Back then you couldn’t get quarters so I parted it out and cut it up. Still my favorite car of all time . Still have the motor in my basement . Nice car but I’m only seeing one.

    You can always tell a 68 by the vent widows . Usually no power steering or brakes beautiful cars

    I had a 68 back when I was teen. Between my reckless youth and hot rod mods, it didn't make it.

    A lot of them didn't. My red one was in original form until around '96 or '97. In original form, it was a 307, 3spd on the column (Lol) with a 10 bolt rear end. Now she's sporting a '68 model 427, TH350 (with a Gear Vendors OD in the shop floor waiting to go in) and a 9" Ford rear end.

    Mine had the 307 with 2 speed power glide. Sadly that blue rocket 88 in the background was faster. lol
