looking at 1968 gto
Ive been considering a 1960's muscle car for a while now and have found a nice 1968 GTO nearby. Im planning on looking it over this weekend.
I have a number of questions:
1. how much value does it lose with non-original #'s matching engine?
2. I have engine codes off GTOALLEY.com...looks like i need to locate the production code on the block on the distributor pad or the casting # behind the #8 cylinder....owner says its all hard to read any suggestions?
3. I need to also find the engine code on the front of the block to make sure its a YS
4. how to i determine the Axle ratio? 3.55? whats common? it has the hurst automatic his/hers
I am planning on having it inspected professionally if it passes my inspection.
Also will check with PHS...i have the VIN# already
I want the car as a high end driver and want to make sure everything is as original as possible...im not sure i want a car w/o the original engine...when i sell it someday i want it to sell easily.
any suggestions are welcome
