Thanks! I probably won't be able to get at it until spring but when the car arrives I'll give it a real good look over and make a list of parts to start hunting for. I already knew that I was doing the grill swap so I'm trying to collect those parts now.Welcome from Alabama, a 68 is a sweet ride. Looking forward to seeing what you do with the grill swap.
I hate to tell you, Bob, but a Coronet 440 would never have come with bucket seats and console. These were only available on Coronet 500 or R/T. A factory bucket seat car would have reinforcements welded to the floor near the transmission hump for the inner bucket seat mounts. There would also be evidence of console mount brackets on the hump. Coronet 440 VIN plate on top of dash should start with WH. Coronet 500 is WP.Thank you. Don't know too much about it so far. I was told it was originally a basic 1968 440 318 car, bucket seats, console shift, manual steering, manual brakes. The console is gone, buckets have been swapped, it's now a column shift. No motor or trans, missing fender tag (that sucks). It was definitely used hard but it's in over all good shape. Needs your typical mopar stuff, rear quarters, rockers (one for sure) rear outer wheel houses, trunk drop offs/extensions and a few tiny hole patches, one in the floor pan and one in the trunk. I seen this car for sale in the summer time, I msg the seller a few times but couldn't commit to the deal at the time. A few days later his ad was gone and I missed out. Now months later I'm still looking around for a 68 Coronet and I found our old emails. I took a chance and asked him if he still had the car. He did, the guy who was supposed to buy it never showed up and the seller didn't bother relisting it. We talked back and forth and all was good. I gave him a deposit to hold it while I made arrangements for a friend out his way to go look at it for me. That was done a few days ago so now we got a solid deal. My shipper is heading out that way in a few weeks to pick it up for me. Then that's when the real fun starts!
