Early 1600 in LA Mountains

Recommended Posts

This might be worth a trip to the mountains to check out. Given the price that Florida 1600 got on eBay, this could be a break-even restoration. If Schwarz is the original color, this would a pretty rare car. I love to see the original CA black plates.

a catalogued color for 1600s...but I've never seen one either. Not sure Max Hoffman ever imported any black 1600s, and precious few if any round tail light 2002s.

And that car is indeed an interesting mixture of '67 and '68 bits. The all chrome instrument surround is definintely 1967, while the steering wheel with the smooth center, and the 4 way flasher switch to the left of the instrument binnacle is strictly 1968. It's hard to tell, but the dash looks like it has the 1967 chrome strips, and the amber center tail lights are definitely wrong--they were red on all US spec cars until late 1969/early 1970. Wonder what the VIN is...
