Default Don't see these everyday...

Friend of a friend chased this car forever, finally go it, and man was it worth it. 68 SS/RS L78, orig everything except for headers, wires, tires and filters. Orig (hammered) paint, drivetrain never out of car (runs real wheel), bought from orig owner who kept every piece of paper since new. LOADED with options, tilt wheel, quad stereo thingy, real time piece.

Wow, that's a find. I'd imagine the MCACN attendees would love to see it this year.

Interesting...double alternator belts? Due to radio-multiplex option?
Looks to be loaded with options.

Default L78

Another one with double belts on the alternator. I bet the car was built in LA? Thatís the fourth totally original L78 I have seen with double belts . Would like to see the fan and clutch. I can bet it has the Eaton fan clutch. The double belts have nothing to do with the smog .

I tuned up the picture to better show the twin belts.
