1968 Marked the end of the famous 138 VIN SS 396 Identification. This '68 is a verified 138 VIN, correct Super Sport Hood, 12 Bolt Posi-Traction Differential and large rear sway bar. The 396 under the hood is also a nice indicator.
The body appear to be in great condition. The panel alignment is nice and the paint has a nice deep shine. The chrome & bright trim look nice. This car is easily nice enough for weekend show n shines and untold amounts of compliments, thumbs up and bent necks.
Inside the interior has been nicely restored. The upholstery has been replaced with the luxury trim seat upholstery. The door panels are quality reproductions along with the dash pad, carpet, headliner and instrument bezel. The fit and finish are nice and it is very comfortable.
Under the hood the 396 looks great. The valve covers are reproduction 350 Horsepower units along with the air cleaner. Inside the engine (reported 4 bolt main) has been upgraded with a TRW pistons, Crane 525 lift hydraulic flat tappet camshaft, Isky valve springs and a bit more compression thanks to a decked block and surfaced cylinder heads. This one still feeds fine on 92 octane pump fuel. The result is a significant increase over stock. Figure a comfortable 400 horsepower and torque that you can only get from big cubic inches. The 4 speed makes the most of the power and gives you something to hang on to while you are smiling ear to ear.
Out back the 12-Bolt Differential is spinning a Posi-Traction carrier and a reported set of 3.70 Gearing. The engine is quite comfortable on the highway thanks to the nice balance job.
Tires and wheels are 15 x 7" Rally Wheels with Brand New BF Goodrich Radial T/A's. 235 60's in the front and 255 60's in the rear. They fit excellent and look perfect.
