Hi Don. That was me that posted the link. After I did I realized I shouldn't have... ha out of fear it would sell. But I was able to buy it quick enough.

I'm not sure on wheels yet but the ones you sent me sure do look sweet. Would look good too!

I'll post more pics in the weeks to come. Have a horrible work schedule for a few weeks.

Thanks!

The Marti came back! It has a few more options than realized.

Not sure if the limited slip is a 8" or 9".

Also what's weird is entire interior is black now and this car sure does not look messed with. Even the original am/fm is still in place.

Lastly the antenna is on rear quarter and the previous owner said there were no signs of a hole patched on the front fender.

Thoughts? Thanks!

Your limited slip would have been an 8" originally. Only big blocks got the 9" in 1967. The antenna was installed at the dealership and the hole was not pre drilled at the factory. If a customer wanted it on the quarter panel instead of the front fender, the dealer would have obliged. As for the interior, it's not uncommon to see interiors switched from green to black. All it takes is an original black interior from a parts car or about 4 cans of vinyl dye.

Under "Order Type", in the area of the dealer name and address, what does it say? Stock, or Retail (or something else) ? Retail, would indicate that it was special ordered by the buyer.
Nicely optioned car.
