I've been trying to research the history of my R code (428 CJ) 1968 Torino GT Fastback....I have the original Build Sheet and Ford has provided build info.
My car was produced July 2, 1968. I know the 428CJ option was started late in the production year (April 1968). A classified ad on a "for Sale" Torino mentioned that only 660 R code Torinos were built in 1968. I cannot locate any documentation to confirm this....Is my car rare or was this person just blowing smoke to sell a car.....From what I have read most 428 CJ's ended up in Mustangs.....but only 660 R code 1968 Torinos sounds too small of a number. Any information on 428 CJ production appreciated
I had Kevin Marti research 1968 428 CJ production in all car lines several years ago. The statistic provided by Marti Auto Works was that 840 428 CJ Fairlane / Torinos were produced in 1968. I did not request a breakdown of 4 speed vs. Automatic but I believe most, if not all were automatics
