I have come across a 1968 ss chevelle, 396 four speed. May have factory 375 hp. Owner left for Vietnam and did not return. Sitting outside since, so is pretty rough. All parts there. 30k miles. Unmodified. Frame may be rusted through in one spot. Question: With limited information given, and no pics, does anyone have any ideas on what to do with this vehicle. I hate to see it sink into the dirt and perish. Thanks, Wilson.

If you can buy it, bring it home and check it over. If it can't be restored, it would be a great parts car.

Chevrolet installed only 4751 396/375 horsepower engines into SS396's in 1968. It definitely be worth it to save the car. Find another parts car to use as parts for this one.

Thanks for the response. That's what I am thinking - get it home.
