I may need someone to look at a 68 in Denver.

Anyone near there and willing to do a pre-purchase inspection?

A lot of information.

So the consensus is all 68s should have VIN stamp even if assembled in late 67? I was told it started in calendar year 68. This car was bucked 11/29/67.

The casting numbers and dates on block and heads are consistent with vehicle assembly. I saw no VIN but given what has been said here I really need to closely examine entire motor.

The trans is not original.

Iím having a hard time orientating myself to the location of the stamp on the block in that last photo. That is on the back of the head?

Also told that early cars did not have VIN stampings. Does anybody know when the VIN stamp began? This car was has 11/29/67on buck tag and door tag says 12/4/67. Should this vehicle have VIN stamps?

It's on the head not the block. Best you can do for the block is confirm a date code

The casting number is behind a freeze out plug?

Where is the blockís date code?

Where is the stamp on a 4 spd?

So itís the rear passenger head thatís stamped? Or block near the head?

I am looking at a GT500 and trying to identify the powertrain.

According to the former registry the last four digits of the Ford VIN are stamped on the block and trans.

Where?

Does anyone have a photo depicting the locations of the vin?

There is a home for every car if a potential buyer and seller can reach an agreement.

Agreed, not every potential owner wants a concours show car.

Interesting thread. So let me throw this out to the group. Iím looking for a 68 and the only absolute is a 4spd car. Would love a lime poly car with hubcaps but would consider all. Price is important; Im a bottom feeder.  ;D Looking for a driver quality car with unrestored chassis. A 3+ or - in need of TLC that runs, with or without original motor.

What should I expect to pay? Looking for fair price range.

Following the 68 prices, several sold mostly around 130k, even a couple of KRs.

Would appear prices are flat?
