Is this car correct?



It could be. The ZL2 Super Scoop was introduced in mid December 1968 while the N66 Super Sport wheels were discoutinued at the end of December 1968.

1969 Rally Sport Double COPO Camaro



Besides have the 427/425hp engine, it also has COPO 9737 Yenko Sport Car Conversion option, consisting of E70X15 tires on Rally wheels, a 140 mph speedometer and a 1 inch stabilizer. And the endura bumper. Not many of these were made. The other two I am familiar with are:

1970 440+6 Dodge Coronet R/T Convertible (1 of 16*)

*
7 - 4 SPD
9 - AUTO


440+6 Production Numbers (Dodge & Plymouth):

It is interesting to note that Dodge used no engine callout emblems on the 1970 Coronet R/T. If you didn't order the Ram Air, there were no emblems at all. If you ordered the Ram Air it would have "440" emblems on the Hood Scoops - either for the standard 440 Magnum . . . or . . . the 440+6.

1970 Hemi Charger R/T



Quote:
So when you can call a car "one of one" with just a few words, and they're a few words from the top of the fender tag, then you're getting somewhere. They're good words: Hemi. Four-speed. Triple black. And that's it--Dodge only built one triple-black four-speed 1970 Hemi Charger R/T.

One-off front-wheel-drive Olds 4-4-2 heading to MCACN*



Quote:
It’s human nature to want what we can’t have. While those weaned on a steady diet of front-engine, rear-wheel-drive cars lament the proliferation of front-wheel drive, there was a time when front-drive was seen as potentially advantageous in a performance car. To test this theory, George Hurst commissioned the build of a special 1968 Oldsmobile 4-4-2, one fitted with the larger V-8 and front-wheel drive of the Oldsmobile Toronado. Now in restored form, the car will make its show debut at the upcoming Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals. . .

*MCACN will be this weekend. I will be posting as many pics as I can find of rare musclecars. This very special 1968 442 will be one of them.

Here is the MCACN website - LOTS of photos!
