Built at the Van Nuys GM plant, this true matching numbers 1968 RS/SS 396-325 HP 4-speed is one of the finest in existence. This car comes adorned with both front and rear factory spoilers. Professionally finished in high-gloss Daytona Blue, it benefits from a 2002 ground-up, frame-off restoration at 23K on the odometer, with the color changed to the more desirable 1970 Le Mans Daytona Blue. The Bumble Bee striping is accompanied by all original badges and markers in correct position and condition throughout. Every screw, nut, bolt, and engine accessory are precisely in showroom condition and position. The undercarriage is pristine and throaty true dual exhaust emits that unmistakable Big Block Chevy sound. The black vinyl top was intentionally deleted.
The interior is complete and sets it apart from the rest with its console gauges, Rosewood steering wheel, “Tic-Toc-Tach,” and houndstooth upholstery all in great condition. The only dysfunction remains with the original GM AM radio and the clock. Glass is clean and clear with rubbers and felts in great condition. It has the vacuum actuators for the hidden RS headlights and grille, that are currently functioning properly. This car was stored in Utah over 3 decades before the second owner restored it. It was then purchased by Patricia O’Reilly, the heir to the O’Reilly Auto Parts fortune, who sold it to the Consignor, who is only the fourth owner of the car, and it still retains its desirable low-mileage with just 26,371 miles on the odometer. Show accolades include the Utah Concours d’Elegance and other top flight shows. This car runs, drives, and shows at the very top of its class, and it will do the same for you!
