Had no idea these cars existed! What a beautiful example.

I didn't realize they were made at Willow Run!
Cool car, but not $50K cool.

Awesome car !!
691 total 68 2dr sport coupe Acadians, I suspect only a handful of legit 68 SS cars ever built. SUPER rare, I have only ever seen one 68 SS Acadian locally (unrestored, not for sale, sitting outside).


There are some very specific rear trim pieces to the 68 SS (also custom interior cars would have specific 68 only door panel emblems). Not shown in these photos


Can anyone decode that diff code. Should be a 12 bolt.


Would love to own it but will have to settle for my driver clone.

Looks like a killer looking Acadian. I'm sure there are many Poncho collectors watching this one.

I really like this car.....especially being a 68. Then top it off with being something different......an Acadian.

I saw this car in person a few years ago, very interesting. I am pretty sure that all other Acadians were built in Oshawa except these SS versions That were built at Willow Run.
