Nice looking ride and my favorite year, but I am a little partial LOL !
Gorgeous car! Side markers were standard on ‘68s.
Post up a pic of the interior and the fender tag.
Seems to be pretty basic. I am still sorting out the build. The online tool leaves a few things blank.

I am putting stock Gabriel shocks on it. I am trying to keep it as bone stock as possible.Are you sure you want to use air shocks on this beauty?
Thanks for the heads up!NOTE TO D RAY'S ALLEN ..SELF, Re-use original locking collar with the new sealing gasket when installing new sending unit .. 'Cuz re-pops are crap and WILL NOT SEAL .. My wordz of wisdom for the day. Nice '68 300 Slabby BTW. Love the azz end of those '68 300s, Jer
Brakes, ball joints, shocks, tie rod ends almost done and it is tire time.
Currently the 300 has brand new, 30 year old G-7014 tires on it. I have been looking at comps and came up with 235 70 R 14, 225 70 R 14, 225 60 R 14, etc...
What are you guys running?

Thanks guys! I should have noted that this car has the OEM hub caps and steel '14 wheels w drum brakes. I am planning to keep the caps, etc. I am keeping this car as close to original as I can.
