1968 280SE Sedan - New Member Questions
I picked up the '68 with a manual 4-speed on the column last week in California. Love the car, in absolutely stunning condition, but I am suffering from a VIN# problem between the title and the car. It looks like a very innocent mistake, but the CA title reads 280SE006760 I will attach a picture of the door plate which reads 10801810006760. I have searched the site top to bottom and have tried to link the classic site, but it does not work. Regardless, I am in a bind as the state of Arizona will not register it without further investigation. Tomorrow I will try again by going to DMV headquarters. What a mess.
The car is amazing though and runs well. It does smoke a bit with moderate acceleration. I assume it is running rich based on smell and grey color. I have the manuals and it seems there is an easy way to lean it out a bit.
Anyway, enough for now. I would appreciate any information on the VIN issue.
Cheers from Tucson.
