68 chevelle good deal, not good deal?

There is a 68 chevelle that I am thinking about buying they are asking 4000 obo its a coupe column shift auto bench seat maroon with blk vinyl top with a little rust spot under it about the size of a quarter its a 4 barrel 327 body is crazily straight every bit of trim is there and nice not scuffed its kinda an old man car but i have always liked the 68s for that double headlight sleepy look i dont know i am gonna go test it out on mon but the other reason i ask this question is i am more of a pontiac guy and only know the basics as far as chevys go but is there a specific name for this luxury type version of chevelle and again would this be a good deal.


dammit im turning into the guy with 6 old cars in his garage but thats not necessarily bad is it. 6 old cars is always better than none

The question is "Do You Like it?"

The price is pretty good for that kind of car. I like chevelles too, even though I like Fords better. I also like the 327 4bbl, its a real classic engine with good high compression still in '68. You could make a real nice ride out of it, of course not quite as nice as a '69 Judge! But you won't find a Judge in that condition for $4G either. As long as its 2-door with the slant back, you can work with it. Again, is it something you want to put money and time into over the next few years? If yes, then go for it.

Good Luck,

Souds like a great deal, It might be a Malibu but that would be badged on the car.
Any Chevelle from 65-72 is a desirable ride.
On yout test drive remember this is a Chevelle, not a Trans am with a WS6 package be cool on corners (at least until Hotchkiss is finished with it).

the major problem with a collection is....

keeping them up or finishing them all.

I stopped collecting and started selling projects to pay for work on my chosen rides. Right now I own 6 projects and will sell off 4 to get down to only 2 to keep and build and make better...not 6!!!! I just traded a 37 Dodge business coupe project for a 69 428 Torino GT in mint conditon only needing front bucket seat covers and a head liner. I want to drive more now than I want to wrench so I'll sell off the Pontiac and one or both of my Chevelles and keep the 53 Chevy and the 69 Torino.
