Nice!! Thank you I’ll post some photos soonFor the serial number stamping, you need to look on the back of the engine, on the rough cast portion of the bellhousing rail. When the trans is bolted to the engine, they stamped the vin on the trans bell rail and the engine in the same place. Not all 68s were like this, but it's worth looking for. My 68 hemi road runner was stamped like this, it looked like the person doing the stamping would stamp the block then the trans, then pick up the next stamp and hit both again. I'd like to know if they did that on yours.
Just run the round part of the back of the block and look closely for stampings, starting above the starter and going all the way around. Good luck.
Just noticed your comments on the year built as 1967 I’m assuming you meant 1968 as the 2260 indicatedMotor assembled Oct5 67 confirmed by the 2260 on bottom. R means 290 horse. Build date of Car Oct 20. Looks perfect!
Yes she is getting put back just as she isLove that bumper sticker...I hope you keep it!
Can anyone help with the transmission stamping

That’s a good question the only part that is completely disassembled is the engine so I’m assuming it was minor damage as the block is still good and correct numbers but I am missing some internal parts. Plus your right gas was costly and you just couldn’t buy it anyway. Now that’s coming too!!!I love that you're going to put it all back together using as much as you can of the OEM parts.
Why was it taken off the road back in 77, gas prices being high (like now, lol!)?
