    Are we talking front and rear boxes here (?) or just rear boxes. I had a '68 340 / 4 speed Formula S car way back, but as kids, we had no idea as to some of the specifics that went into our cars. My current 'Cuda was originally a 318 /4 speed, so I guess the lowly 318 didn't warrant the boxes.

    Anyone know who has the nicest reproduction boxes that I can add to my car?

    '05 4.7 Jeep Grand Chickeree in "Inferno Red"

    Yours is an original 318/4sp? Back in the 1980s there were TWO 68 318/4sp/sway bar Barracudas at the consignment lot (Wheeler Dealer, I think it was) in Mountain View on El Camino. As I recall one was a fastback and the other was a coupe. Never thought to go with a camera and take pics in those days, though.

    Yeah, 318/4sp car with front sway. When I had plans for a 440-6pak w/4 speed I felt so lucky for the original equipment. I've since put in an AlterKtion; new trans tunnel and upper crossmember and will be using a hydraulic clutch. I'm really only using the original clutch/brake pedals and that's about it! Could have used a /6 automatic car! LOL

    Thanks for the links Joe. They linked to some US Car Tool units that are a lot cheaper and a lot beefier. I'm not worried about them not looking original. One look under the hood will make that clear anyway. LOL

    Sorry to OP, but it looks like you'd already received the info you needed.

    I have 2 68 Darts, one hard top originally a small block car and a convertible originally a /6, 3 on the tree. The convertible has boxed frames front and rear and the hard top car has none. I am in the middle of installing the US Car Tool subframe connectors. They are designed for the non-boxed but a little cutting on the rear of the connector and they will fit up to a car that is boxed.
