    A friend of mine, having seen my 68 GTX and knowing that I was a Mopar guy, was kind enough to show me HIS car, for the very first time yesterday. I had heard about it - but had no idea, just how beautiful his Mopar really is! I wasn't able to take any over-all photos, given the confines of it's secure storage, but I was able to snap a few pics, that I thought you might enjoy.

    PS: I have since amended, my concluding artwork, that was initially posted at the tail end of this thread, to ultimately solve the puzzle, for those of you who couldn't ID this rare mopar, given only the 'mid-range' photos available to you!

    Hopefully, I have put out all the flames, lol.

    As always, your comments are welcome :)

      Pity they can't find the correct square head keys for a 1966 on such an original car. 1467044052692.jpg

        Excuse me for my being an amateur in such matters, and for my conflicting choice of words during my 'kid-in-a-candy-store' excitement, wanting to share a few pics along with my own final description of this amazing mopar. None of the content expressed by me herein, should be considered to represent that of the owner. I will now attempt to correct my error. Tyvm, for bringing this to my attention.

        Yes, it is a two door, and
        Yes, I did mean it was professionally restored, using original parts.
        I am sorry for the confusion, my error in words has created.

              Given the fact, we are all limited, in the number of pics, we can post within the initial thread,
              one photo that I have, but didn't include, would have probably been more helpful, regarding the vehicle keys - seen hanging from the turn signal lever. I believe, they are a set of 'spare keys'... I have attached an additional photograph, better illustrating, what I suspect, are the correct vehicle keys, as seen inserted in the ignition, information not available to you, in my initial post.

                I hope so, as the blanks should still be out there somewhere.
                As far as I know, the square head keys were only used in 65, 66, and 67.
                I had to search a while, but could never be happy with the star head key for the 66.
                I think the 68s started the star head, but with the key itself coming off a flat side of the star. When steering column locks were introduced, the key part extended from one of the points of the star.
                Why such tiny details make such a difference to me, I'll never know.

                    Mine is gonna be a street-driven, NHRA superstock chassis car. It has 1189 original miles, and needs TONS to finish it. What's with the certified speedo?
