Re: 68 rear springs

I bought a quart at Tractor Supply maybe 15 years ago. A quart will do maybe 30 pairs of springs. It was around $40 a quart back then. https://www.amazon.com/Slip-Plate-No-Quart-Pack/dp/B005FY2FX6/ref=sr_1_2_sspa?hvadid=78134106457746&hvbmt=bp&hvdev=c&hvqmt=p&keywords=slip+plate+graphite+lubricant&q...

Re: Testing the waters, thinking about selling the G

There are no original power windows for a 1968 so that would be a real trick finding OEM parts LOL!!!!! I'd say somewhere between 25k and 30k. I paid Coyote classics 18k for mine and although totally electronically and mechanically sound, (except for the fuel sender -- last week) your paint job is f...

Re: 68 rear springs

You just need to decide on the ride height. Then tell the spring shop how many inches to add to the arch. Have them replace the bushings and put slip plate graphite paint between the leaves.

Re: 67-68 upper control arms

I wanted to rebuild mine but they turned out to both be cracked at the rivet holes after I spent a couple hours drilling and bead blasting them. I got a second set and they were cracked too. I would have saved a ton of time and money just buying the ones made by Rare Parts in the first place. You ca...

Re: February 68 427 GT-E Engine ?

Since the Dearborn Engine Plant (DEP) is where the engine would have been assembled, and the cars were assembled at the Dearborn Rouge Plant, it's barely possible for a car built February 23. More likely for a car built after March 1, 1968. But if it was the best one I could find I would use it rega...
