Welcome to the forum. We have a bunch of nice folks here willing to help. Have you picked out a body/style/year you like best or are you up for anything?

Thumbs Up

Thanks for the welcome guys.

I would say that I am pretty much up for anything. I have been looking around locally for something and I have found everything from 1965 to 1969. All different types of conditions. I find myself leaning more towards the 68/69 hardtop. I would prefer a 351W or C (or bigger) but if I can't find that, I might just have to put a crate motor in.

There is a nice condition 1969 around here. No body damage, rust or peeling paint. The interior is in excellent condition. Only issue is it hasn't been started in over 20 years.

Welcome.

68 is an entirely different body style than 69.

As far as 69/70 coupes, I like them, but they have a much smaller audience (and therefore generally lower resale value) than an earlier coupe.

No matter what, from a $$ perspective, buy the best car you can afford, and the car with the least rust is usually the best buy.

I'm not an expert, but I play one on the internet.

Thanks Blake!

I do know the body styles are different. Those are just the years that specifically caught my eye. I am not opposed to any of the years.

the 68 GT and Shelby looks nice. If I could find one of those, I would get it quick. If it is a 69, I think I like the hardtop the most.
