1968 1600

I’ve seen this ad previously: I recall the long confusing history that wandered into fuel-injected split-window Vettes....

 

(I’ll be honest, I’d probably choose the fuel-injected Split-Window over the 1600-2, as well! ?)

 

Nonetheless, a very neat car. I’m guessing it’s a pretty early 1968 model, probably pre-January 1, 1968: the silver-painted instrument cluster bezel and the triangular cut-outs in the trunk bulkhead are features carried over from the 1966-67 models, but eliminated during the 1968 model year.  VIN 1562153 was the last U.S.-spec 1968 car manufactured in the 1967 calendar year. Because I’d guess this car was manufactured in 1967, it’s VIN would, accordingly, be between 1560001 and 1562153.

 

Someone should buy this, re-paint the rims silver, put some new XAS’s on it, and love it!

 

Regards,

 

Steve

Waterbird could be human, or a significantly more intelligent Bot than JohnPeter.  Asked this question in another post.

What does the scammer have to gain? Crazy!

 

Deposit to hold car.

 

 

 

Hey, Mark,

 

I forgot to mention, I received a PM from JohnPeter. Seriously!

 

The full text was:

 

”am not bot.”

 

proving, indisputably, that:

 

a.) JohnPeter is not a bot, or...

 

b.) JohnPeter is a bot! ?

 

But, since that time, JohnPeter hasn’t posted any parts for 2002 X5’s.... ?

 

Best regards,

 

Steve

@Conserv I don't find your exchange with JohnPeter reassuring vis a vis the impending robot uprising.

 

You’re right! ?

 

And, fearful of offending the bot empire, I replied to “am not bot.” with a tepid “OK”. I hope the robot empire takes that the right way. ?

 

Regards,

 

Steve

Y'all have kept me entertained and laughing....and that white car? I'd probably lay down damn close to $12k for it, if I had the cash and it was local. I'd rather pay $12k for an honest car than $12k for shiny fresh paint and "unknown" things about to bloom, beneath it. 

 

I swore that if I ever found an 02 built on my birthday (12/03/68) I'd sell drugs and ride around in limos filled with dirty old creepy businessmen, to earn the cash to afford restoring it. 

 

This comment may come back to haunt me.

This car calls to me as well, but it calls all the way from Sparta Michigan. Are there any known good BMW shops (or friends) who could take a look at it? 

 

I had a brief email exchange with the owner, seemed fine, but it does seem odd that the car is in Michigan and listed on Vegas Craigslist. Not a warm and fuzzy feeling, that.
