Its all 1968 trim and it does have a very narrow stainless strip on the rear edge of the wiper door. So small its hardly visible and unlike 69`s there is not any side skirt gill treatment...Just as you noted, plain and simple...

This one is also stock since 68 and was purchased by my Dad.

From July 1968 a few days after it was picked up from the dealership:

Great to see another safari yellow 68 survivor out there.

I love these old photos. When mine is back together I'm going to try and get some photos of my own young kids for them to show on CorvetteForum in 40 years.

Well, it's obviously the L88 hood. That means it's got an L88 or the rarer L89 in it.
I was hoping to see pics of it is all.

My newly completed 71 War Bonnet Yellow Coupe.. I bought it from a fellow forum member with 39,000 documented miles on the clock...
I did a complete cosmetic restoration along with the usual bushings, seals and gaskets..
