Folks, I am considering purchasing 67' 400 convertible /4 speed on West Coast. Car has just 60,000 original miles. Owned by current owner for last 29 years (stored in barn) where he has put est. 6,000 miles on car since he bought it.
The VIN confirms year, make, model and engine block - but engine code is YT indicating automatic trans pairing vs. 4 speed. I have yet to order PHS to resolve discrepancy between block and trans - but trans /shifter look period correct. Carb (rebuilt), manifold and heads are all original.
Car has likley been in minor accidents over the years (given identification of some bondo on rear right quarter panel), is generally rust free (expect for right read floor panel rusting out) and appears to be for the most part stock.
No material mechanical issues identified and car seems more or less solid foundation.
Any input on how to determine if #'s matching without ordering PHS and any suggestion on what to look for and relative market value on this car?
