you think some put this together to look like a bb vette?
the guy i got it for said before he bought it it had a big block in it but it was toast so the person he picked it up from put the motor thats in it now. he also said it had side pipes but i dont think there were side pipe on 68's
L-88's had the 427 individual numerals on the hood not a L-88 emblem. Your car also has a hole for the antenna. Also. you say this is a June built car. The outside mirror is more in a position to be an earlier car. It's more forward on the door whereas later cars had them positioned more aft than forward.
It does not have the wider L88 fenders.
Seems nothing is matching at this car - and seriously it doesn´t even matter if it was a BB or not. Its just may be important to you, but not to the value in this mixed up condition of the car and parts.
There were no L-88 fenders. L-88 cars left the factory looking just like their small block cousins.
You could purchase fender flares through Chevrolet parts dealers if you wanted them. Dr. Dobbins' book shows several of the off road items GM was selling over the coutner. Good book. Worth the price of a copy.
Unless this particular car has some history of significance, something unusual, valuable, there's no collector value to be had.
If it was originally configured with a big block and IF the past owners kept the parts unique to a big block, there may be value if your intent is to reinstall a big blck, no need to chase down parts. Otherwise it has no special value over another NOM IMHO. Not to say the car isn't valuable to somebody, just not valueable to collectors.
So let me ask you all this........
If I left it as it sets with the 350 in it , What would you est. the selling price to be on the open market?
I know thats a broad question but you guys are the all knowing and deal with these cars all day long . What would be your best guess.
I picked this up as an investment to fix and resale but I'm not sure just how much more I should put into it if as you say its just a noe vette.
You guys have it all wrong. I'm not trying to pass this 68 off as an L88 I'm asking if that's what it is.
I have no Idea what this vette is. As I read the posts on this site to check for this and that I started to thing perhaps it was big block born vette. That being said I'm just trying see what the selling value of these cars are. I really don't want to give it away but I don't want to over state it either. that's what all questions are about. I didn't get snookered I picked it up for an very fair price . Just seeing where I am with it that's all.
I do what to say thank you all your comments and guidance . Just trying to figure out what I have....thanks
