CL ad for a '68 vert
Posted by: American Mel ()
Date: February 08, 2020 11:18PM

Do I really need to say, "Not mine"?

I know some will hate on it because it has tacked on bumper trim down the sides, and some won't like the color, but from the pictures, it looks like it might be a fairly nice car.
What was it? Something like only little over 1300 Verts made in '68?

I normally don't like the bumper trim but for some reason it looks correct on this car color combination.

I can't imagine having a garage that clean/organized! What am I doing wrong?

Looks great, but the description of the engine scares me.

Search shows it was purchased out of NY in 2017 for $6200 with no reported engine issues at that time. 68,581 miles. Note: Missing Monza emblems on front fender.
[usedcarsfsbo.com]

Also offered by Olsen Auto Exchange in Wisconsin with slightly lower 68,228 miles but Monza emblem installed upside down.
[classiccardb.com]

Now in Portland area per CL ad with Monza emblem installed right side up.

Kind of confusing what the history is with this one. I do see a CORSA sticker in the window on some pics.

Maybe...Previous sale ad from 2017 say it was an owner's attempt at water vapor injection.

This vehicle has an aftermarket water injection on the engine.
