Re: 1968 SS 4 spd

They are hard to find. I paid 250 for mine missing one lock and set of seat tracks. I got mine from a junkyard for old cars. Impala seats are the same except the seat track. Hence the one missing track on mine. Call these guys they can track one down if they don't have it.

Thanks again.
I like vinyl tops, but a lot of people don't. If you don't like it, don't put it on, in my humble opinion.

It's YOUR car!

There is an ad in the classifieds here from a seller that has/had two sets of 68 seats. The ad is from last September but I would contact that person. You could also place a wanted ad in the classifieds for 68 buckets.

Re: 1968 SS 4 spd

OK, it looks like my SS is an A/C car so do I need to install one or does that make a difference in the value?

Can you post some pics of what you have under the hood and under/in the dash? That will tell us a lot about what you need....this is really a loaded question. You could need a compressor only, or entire firewall suitcase and everything for AC......

Re: 1968 SS 4 spd

I just talked to a local A/C guy and he tells me the car already has a condenser on the passengers side of the fire wall and that I is an original A/C car. Is it worth while to add the remaining pieces to make it work again or just leave it as is? The car also has a 4-speed and 12 bolt rear end. What tells me if they are both original to the car? Thanks again for all the help.

Having functional A/C will add value. Is it worth the expense will be determined by several factors. How much will it cost you to track down the parts you are missing, the quality of the car when finished, and the price range you will be shooting for when you sell.

As for determining if components are original to the car, that information can be found by searching tag team and what it's worth sections.

The trans will have two sets of numbers stamped vertically on the passenger side. One will start with a P and the other should start with a 1 and then a letter. Right those down and then go to Chevellestuff.net and go to the Muncie decode section. Basically a partial vin (that would match your vin) should be part of the set of numbers that should start with 1.
Then on the front of passenger axle tube and back side of the differential there should be codes. Those can be like wise be deciphered at Chevellestuff.net.
Or go to Chevellestuff.net first to see examples of what you are looking for.
