This month I figured I would post sooner then the last 2 days of the month so here I go. Here is my 68 I am finishing up got it registered and road worth this last month. The first time she has been registered since 1988. The motor is a built 396 wiesco pistons eagle h beam rods lunatti cam Cran stainless roller rockers Edelbrock heads Edelbrock pro Flo 4 fuel injection. Cpp 13in disk brake kit and tubular control arms. Massive control arms out back 12 bolt with a Eaton true track and cpp rear disk brake kit and a turbo 400 built to match the motor and a 3500 stall torque converter. I so far have really enjoyed driving this car and I am super proud of it. I know she's far from perfect but perfect from far. I have done 90% of the work myself and by myself. When I got this car it was a bare she'll no frame no fenders and no doors

We‘ve come to June, cruising season here in Minnesota, and I have 2 new photos and one from the day we bought her. Again, this is Charlotte. She turns 53 this month. When took over caretaking responsibilities she’d already had a facelift 20 years prior, a heart transplant to a well built 396/TH400 combination, but retained her peg leg. It’s been exactly 2 years to the day since we brought her home. I learned that day of the gas station lookie loo, the thumbs up on the highway, the fascination by young and old alike, etc. It still gets my adrenaline pumping when I give ‘er the beans.

Say hi to Murphy. She got that name because "If it could go wrong it did!" Many of us know that 68's can be a tough car to restore because of limited NOS and after market parts but when she came together I have to say it is one of my biggest achievements. Taking the better part of 4 years to restore and aside from the engine machine work I did everything including spraying this triple black beauty with the help of good buddies. Total nut and bolt restoration right down to new carbon fiber clutches in the 12 bolt which included a total teardown and rebuild of every part in this car. Bilstein shocks with Moog suspension, Legendary interior, power cloth top, it's number matching drivetrain right down to the carburetor and distributor allows this L79 (327/325) to can get it done when needed. She is a beautifully balanced, well equipped performance convertible with AC, PS, M21, buckets with console, full gauges with roller tachometer, 3.31 geared 12 bolt posi and factory 4 piston front disc brakes makes this rare car a pleasure to drive.

Thanks buddy. When I bought the car I got all caught up with the rarity of options that this car offered but it was a lot of work bringing her back to life. My best friend once said shit that's not a restoration it's a resurrection. Well he was right and every cut and scape bringing her back made it all worth it. If you are curios how I started Murphy feast your eyes on my beauty in 2016.

I tell my buddy all the time 68's are better then his 69 lol
Ahhh all 68's makes it so hard to choose and well since they are the Quintessential Chevelle LOL I chose all 3!!!!
Us ‘68 owners know. It’s not that its an undesirable year, it’s the best kept secret ;). Loving all of the ‘68s. Bill, that car was a mess. I feel like I cheated because I bought a “finished” car. Well, finished 17 years prior. There are some things that should be addressed, for now, I’m just enjoying driving.

No person that works hard to buy a finished car cheats nor a person that works hard on his car to bring it back to life did it better. In common we all worked hard to drive those cars that we love.

I completely agree it's not how you got your car or what you did to make the car yours all that matters is that you enjoy it and take care of it to be able to be enjoyed for another generation. I think we can self proclaim June the month of 68s

Went up too Massachusetts and met Bill, Pat and Murphy this Friday. I've got too say, "What a car!" After meeting Bill I have decided that when I grow up (I'm 56), I want to be just like Bill! Silly question, how do I vote for Murphy? It's got my vote!

My first car in 1974 and still have it. Bought car as a shell with no drivetrain or wiring. Paid 35 dollars as a parts car. That started the HP blood that never goes away. Upgraded to 496 with Pro Flo 4 EFI. 4 wheel Corvette style disc brakes. UMI suspension. 9 inch ford rear. Lowered 2 inches with 18 inch wheels. Body and interior stock.

Well since we have a few 68's here I'll add mine but she's not finished yet (Are they ever? lol) I'm very happy with the 590 hp 600 tq engine and the 2012 Camaro leather bucket seats are very comfortable for my old butt LOL, I've added some SS trim since these pics were taken But I REALLY LIKE Bills BILLDINI's 68 L79 (y) :)
