I like what they did with the hood and grille compared to the 2016 GT-H.

Thank you all for the info. Planning to look under the dash this weekend to see if the harness has the connector for the belts light. If not, not sure if I'll pursue further.....if it does then there's the problem of finding the belts light/socket, relay, and wiring which I haven't been able to find online yet.

Looks like a late Jan 69 build:

The Marti report for my 69 GT500 indicates the vehicle has the "Deluxe belts/Warning Light" option, but there is no belts light in the dash where it should be between the ignition and wiper switches. Could this most likely be an error in the restoration?

Thanks,
Bob

Is it possible to verify a 428 CJ w/o seeing the block scratch letter? These are the numbers I've been able to find to date:

Block casting # C6ME-A (seems correct for '68-70 428CJ)
Engine block date code is "8G23" (July 23, 1968) also seems correct. Vehicle build date was 1/28/69 from the Marti report.
Cylinder head casting # C8OE-C090-N (seems correct)
Cylinder head date code: 8L8 = Nov 8th, 1968 (seems correct)

The vin stamping on the block is illegible. See pic below.

Thanks for the help.

Thanks. Any suggestions for a black vinyl spray paint to use? Matte, semi-gloss, etc?

My steering wheel foam pad is pulling away from the metal base exposing some of the yellow-brown foam at the edges. Any thoughts on spraying the pad with black charcoal vinyl spray paint vs replacing the pad? Is this just a loosing battle? Thanks.

Thank you. Makes sense, AM-only doesn't need L/R stereo speakers...........

I've seen a few 69 GT500's without speakers in the door panels. Were door speakers an upgrade?

Much thanks. That matches the Marti report for the vehicle.

I'm trying to understand the registry entry for 9F02R480722 in the 1997 registry. See pic. Can someone please decode the other info listed in the entry. See pic. Thanks!

Assume both are feature equivalent and concours quality with the only difference being the 68 GT350 is 4 speed and 69 GT500 is auto..........

Following along, but he has not answered the one question of how much will he be driving, and where. If he is only planning on highway, or back roads, the 4-speed. But any slow driving, parades, etc, auto. The factory clutch linkage is a BEAR!!!

or, get the 4-speed, convert to hydraulic clutch!

Putting usage/fun factors aside, I was mostly looking for opinions on the investment value difference.........

Interesting idea, but wouldn't make huge changes to either as the drivetrains are original. I think the further you get away from stock, the value decreases............. but yeah stick is more fun.
