Yes he told me it was installed at Baldwin shortly after he bought, because it was available on the 68 model. He picked the car up August 2nd or 3rd.

Love the look!!!!!
Those are actually correct NOS Goodyear D70-14's on the car as well. Thanks for posting those Steve...I couldn't figure out how to post them. I have a few more photos from when Fidel owned the car.

I'd say a lot of dealers put spoilers on later built cars to dress them up. My deck lid has the inside holes for spoiler bolt access but one was never installed.
Is the fuel pump to carb line on your car OEM?

The deck lid has the holes to accommodate a spoiler due to being late production as well. When i purchased the car there were engine modifications and the the fuel line to carb was long gone. I may have a source for an assembly line correct fuel line.

I haven't had the car picked up because its brutally cold where the car resides. Not where its stored inside (65deg), but when transported back. Its been -22 and I'm hesitant because I'd hate to see the seat crack if the transporter moved the car after linitial pick up.

Your line is like mine and many other cars we see, it's a re pop. I've got some old pictures of Sherman's car and at the point where the almost 90 degree bend is that extra bend down toward the carb is not there. I met a guy from Columbus OH that had a 4K car and he showed me correct NOS one he had. I've never seen one advertised for sale but I'm sure someone has one.
The fuel line that comes from the rear to the pump. Is it's last strap on one of the engine stool bolt or a bolts tapped into the frame just before the stool? Oops I forgot the cars not there. Well that's something we can discuss later. My car is in the stool bolt with no tapped hole in the frame but Shermans car was the hole in frame method.
My car has a big sway bar, Sherman's had a small one. There's difference in these cars and I'm not sure build date times have anything to do with it.

I shipped a 1969 Dodge RT w/16,500 miles from Calif. to Ohio in winter time. I put my knee on the back seat to remove the for sale sign left taped to the back window, and the seat vinyl shattered like a thin sheet of ice. I couldn't believe it.
