Engine stamp - T0906IO 18S401782 (Tonawanda, NY - Sep 6th, L36 Engine with Holley 3x2BC & Turbo Hydra-Matic)

The known history goes back to June 2000 - purchased in Clearfield, Utah with 96,975 original miles. Owner restored it between 2000-2003 and then sold it in 2005 to a gentleman in Yorktown, VA. I bought the car from that owner in May 2006. I have documentation of the restoration - parts replaced, upgraded, extra parts on hand - and the few things I have done to keep it up. The radio is an aftermarket Custom Autosound that I kept in the dash and have a new Alpine deck in the rear. The engine, pillar and tranny numbers match.

Parts have been upgraded from original, to include: floor heat barrier set, leather seats (68 basket weave), Pertronix ignition module & coil, Be-Cool 60022 aluminum radiator, B & M Supercooler transmission cooler, braided stainless brake lines, aftermarket sound, battery cut-off switch, Dynamax Super-Turbo mufflers, seven blade lightweight flex fan, Hyperflex polyurethane suspension bushing set, KYB gas shocks, stainless rally wheel trim rings, inline fuel filter, and others. I have the original fan blade and clutch, telescoping steering column, beauty rings and the right/left half shafts. I have the owner's manual, sales brochure, assembly manual/binder, 3 1/2 page list of parts that were replaced and a stack of receipts for those.

The car runs as well as it looks - no mechanical issues. For additional photos, see my link to Photobucket.

Thanks guys. The car is in Las Vegas, Nevada. Priorities have changed, so I am going to try and sell this and get something the whole family can enjoy - 5th wheel toyhauler. Here is a link to my photobucket for additional pics.

Great looking Vette. You sent me an e-mail and to be honest I really want a 4 speed, but the car is terrific looking. Thanks and good luck, someone will really want this beauty.

I went ahead and listed my car on eBay. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/1968-...item3a62997f12

I'd appreciate any feedback with regards to the ad - how to make it better.

Thanks.

One thing I would add to the ad is pictures and description of the frame and any rust or lack of it. From the VIN tag, it looks pretty good so you might as well flaunt it.

Oh and set a Buy It Now price of $25 k and email me 5 minutes before you do

Good catch Binster. Changed it to say 'convertible' on the title of the listing.

Thanks.
