      I posted comments on FB about this car. If condition is true? I've seen worse buys than this guy.

        4 speed car with a 22" radiator. I don't think so. No Dana, and not a 26" radiator car. Looks like an automatic car with a 4 speed conversion. Not that this is necessarily a terrible thing, buyer just needs to be aware.

          I believe standard radiator would have been 22" unless an axle package had been chosen
          and/or a/c.
          My '68 came with a 22" stock due to the 3.23 rear and no a/c.

          DownZero? You disagree? You haven't seen worse buys than this GTX listed? I think you have?

            Body numbers match the VIN? That would be a first.

                If originally a 4-speed. Every indication suggests it is a conversion?

                    says the previous owner
                    removed the Dana for easy gear changes
                    current 3.91:1 gears

                    wonder if the 18 spline trans is still there too

                    I'm not hating it

                    seen far worse for more $$$

                    albeit
                    says no rust car (north/midwest car I'm sure it has rust)
                    except for trunk floor is sketchy,
                    says the previous to the previous owner swapped

                    manual brakes & steering
                    sounds like a low option car

                    looks like & says org. carpet
                    looks like org. 4 speed trans hump
                    no console

                    Has alum. Edelbrock heads & Edelbrock intake
                    doesn't know what's in the internals, "it's a beast"

                    no fender-tag or build sheet

                    sounds like an atypical 52 y/o MoPar
                    ran hard & put away wet for 62k+ miles
                    etc. etc. etc.

                        68 GTX, 4 speed, would be a 26” radiator and 3.54 Dana 60 as standard equipment.

                          The car isn't stock; it says so in the ad. I'm sure if it was a numbers matching type car it would be listed for no less than $55K. I think $32K is a great price for a fast (?) car that you can enjoy and not have to worry about its numbers matching pedigree...

                            I would call it a car with lots of original parts, lots of modifications. Not worth anywhere near that to me, but I'm livin' in the past.

                            I wonder why that was? All other components being equal, why would a stick car need
                            more cooling than the 727?

                            Yup. Fred was originally an automatic and he got a 22" with 3.23 standard 8 3/4" SG.
