    Hello Everyone! Finally starting to get warm here in Michigan and can't wait to get started on my new project I picked up this fall. 1968 road runner 999 code Petty blue car. Finding out lots of difference between early and late 68 and other year road runners so may need some help.

      Welcome from another from the Motor City. Looks like a nice project. 999 paint code is cool. I will have to swing by to check it out someday.

      Welcome. And yes about the changes made in 68-69. And can get confusing. They were pushing new regulations in the middle of production periods. Don't be totally surprised if you find something out of date. The factory wasn't as concerned about numbers matching as we are today. Plenty of production accidents as well. They would fix with "Body off" components. Or with newer components that was not mandated in the month the car's frame was dropped. And then we all fight about its authenticity. But in the end? Love what you got.

      It's crazy all the different things you read about what should be what! Every plant did it's own thing so there's something different in Every car. Like on the hood treatment I read that in April of 68 St Louis changed from Organisol to low gloss enamel, never would have known that! And like you said I'm sure they'll be some arguments about it.
