Well, I have to admit that most of my FB interactions consist of deleting notices in my email box. There are only so many pics of what's cooking on the grille that I can take.
I would think that you could link to the page if you copied it from the browser? Or tell us the name of the FB account that has the pics?

I'd rather let the owner do all that , i was just trying to link some pics somehow.

Need to say i was wrong about it having been a complete engine to start with.
It wasn't .
The heads came from a source in Michigan, and they have a couple unique features that might get researched further some day after he gets the car back.
He doesn't think he will have it back in SC for another 6 months due to various circumstances.

It will be a cool car.
Maybe we will get to see the PHS for the Deuce Car that donated the Block.

Update. I recently purchased car #20 that was advertised here. In process of installing correct factory and RA II parts that were missing. Recently acquired correct RA II exhaust manifolds. Car will be very nice driver .

BTW I also have a 68 Tempest Custom that wears it's factory color of Meridian Turquoise, black vinyl top, and Aqua interior.

Wow
Congrats Mark !
An extra awesome ultra rare GTO and i like the Midnight Green they put on it.
HideAways are always a winner too.
The exhaust manifolds look in great shape, not sure anyone has posted pics of originals in this thread before. They really look cool with RA raised casting like most of the cylinder heads have on them.

The Tempest is really living up to its name -
it looks like a storm is brewing under the hood.

Thanks for the Update, and more Congrats to you on the new ownership !

Thanks! I too like the 69 color but will be painting it in its factory correct color of Verdoro. Hope to have a correct WY block soon. Will share pictures of block casting number and block code.

Have a copy of the BHC for this car now.
Have not done a breakdown on it yet.
It is very bare bones with just a few numbers in a few of the boxes.
Will definitely be the low cost leader of the crowd at $3997.19 MSRP

Billing Date is May 28 1968

Interesting it ordered new at Bratten Pontiac in Norfolk Virginia
They were a race oriented dealer.
They got one of the 1963 SuperDuty cars
And they sponsored the 65 GTO race car Jolly Green Giant that Rick Holladay drove and Arnie Beswick did the engine.

Rick is still alive and with any luck might have remembrance of the Car since it was somewhat an off-beat color combo and Ram Deuce.
White with Teal interior
Versus VooDooGreen with Black or Red with Black

It only had
(444) In-Dash Tach & Gauges
(494) Rally Stripes
(621) Ride & Handling

Redlines with DogDish wheels

No Radio, no steering or brakes
Lots of Engine and Axle ... hmm where did they plan to drive it

Lean Machine
Rally Stripes and Call Outs would have been Black
Then Redline tires with Black Rims
all that going against the Teal interior
To me it sounds a bit on the woppy side

I'm surprised they went for the added extra weight of the Rally Stripes on this Stripper.
At first glance i was thinking 494 was going to be endura delete/chrome nose.
But the delete is 484
... would have been some even extra cool factor though
