This car on noneck link below belongs to me. I am the second owner, listed on title as 2dr.malibu, came with concours package. has the buick interior, heavy duty carpet pad, wood grain dash, rear ash trays and all the emblems.Came with 307 2speed power glide. From what i have read, long story short, there was a fire that destroyed a lot of the stock interior that normaly goes into the malibu coupes. They finished up the cars that were on the line with the concours interior package. Also there was a strike going on at the time of the fire, assembly was done by management.

I just saw a 68 Chevelle at a Des Moines dealer that looked just like a 69....at least he said it was a 68 Concours. His explanation said that late in 68 Chevy started to equip their 136 cars Concours with 69 badging, grille and tail lights.
VIN said it was a 68.
I'm confused here....any help please.
Here it is:

I'm not an expert on those cars, but I don't believe one syllable of that guy's story.
I never knew the Concours interior to be available on an SS.
Although that car looks great, I think it's a 'mutt'--a bunch of miscellaneous parts the owner/restorer liked and threw on one car.

I agree, a mutt, a nice mutt, but a mutt. With all the resto mod changes, the wierd history doesn't matter, anyway.

This rare Raven Black 1968 Chevelle Concours Hardtop was ahead of its time and had several 69 options installed in 1968.
If buyer remorse and litigation set in after the sale, might the seller have to prove that statement above? Or would the overall description of the car having been rebuilt with "upgrades" provide a defense that the buyer had no reasonable expectation that the vehicle equipment/options were restored as new?
If I were a resto-mod buyer I'd want it appraised as-is and decide if I liked it enough to make an offer. And if I were shopping for a bone stock trailer queen with correct chalk marks and stickers, I'd just pass because it obviously isn't that.

I don't know, but just when I think I've heard a seller 'say it all', someone raises the bar. I'd ask him what documentation he has to prove any of that. He won't have any.

I agree with that. Even when a seller has a nice car which should attract buyers on its own merit they sometimes cannot resist posting a "shovel ready" advert. Someone on another topic pointed out CL car ads for sale "by owner" which clearly showed dealer tags in the pics. D'oh!

The dealer is full of crp. No late 68 Chevelles came with 69 body parts or badging - and no early 69 Chevelles came with 'left-over' 1968 parts. Someone could have simply put a 69 front end on a 68 Chevelle.
