    I just bought my grail. She is a 68 VIP. I still have the one I have owned since 1986 and now this beauty. This one is brakes away from being show ready.

    VERY nice - I dig Fury VIP's...… not normally a fan of non-stock wheels, but I AM a fan of these - nice choice. Burgundy and black is elegant.

    Gorgeous car!
    Yeah, I dig those wheels over the stock wheelcovers also. I always thought the covers on our 68 VIP were too plain for the top of the line car. Ours also had the ugly steering wheel with the black rubber knob in the center. The cloth material used on those seats was nice in black. Dad’s car had a 383 but came with a 318 hood ornament that bugged the hell out of me. Hey, I was a car nut in eighth grade! Dad finally got a 383 ornament from work for me to swap out.

    Very nice car, big fan of the rims, I have a set myself, they'd be on the imperial if they'd fit it
    But you need these caps ( not mine) ebay misc. 1431.jpg

    Love the cop Rallyes and the cop caps. I ran that combo on my '78 NYBS until I got four good sets of the three-piece wheelcovers; that took a while!

    Nice car. Very sleek and stylish in that color combo!

    The rims came on the car but I really like them. I may go with a Crager later on.

    Beautiful car in one of the best colors for these rides. Code RR1 if I'm not mistaken. That was the color of my dad's '68 Fury III sedan when I was growing up. Very rich looking.

    The thin-line whitewalls and trim rings really set them off, and make a nice look.
