I just need a good rain followed by at least one sunny day to take her out for a first drive. I'm not waiting for 55 degrees. 40 will do!

FYI I just picked up a 1994 Lagoon Green 968 with 74000 kilometers(45k miles) for 44k USD so you can add this car as a reference point as well.

Below are some pics of the interior.

I will add some exterior pics when I get a chance. I must say the color combination on this car is absolutely stunning.

Wow. Lagoon green is a 1992 only color here in North America. And I see you have it combined with a cobalt blue interior. Wow again.

the switchgear on the console tells us this is a ROW 968. See the headlight adjuster.

The US Lagoon went to MD.

Rggale,

What's the story on the GMC dually in the pic? I'm a sucker for '60's GM trucks.

Since you asked...
1961 GMC 3/4 ton. I am the 2nd owner. The truck was originally purchased in Washington DC by a Bell Telephone engineering executive, who bought it to haul his camper. He used it for one season and his wife found it to be unstable, so he went back to GMC, who together with Goodyear designed and built a custom dual rear wheel setup for the guy. He then purchased bolt-on utility fenders to replace the stepside fenders so they could get more storage for clothes and food. The truck has lived indoors its entire life. It had 41,629 miles on it when I bought it. I've put around 9,000 miles on it, including an unplanned trip from Harrisonburg VA to Charlotte NC and back to New Jersey summer 2016 during a 100 degree heat wave. I was driving a 1965 White tractor trailer to a truck show in Charlotte with a bunch of antique trucks on the back including this, when I blew a head gasket. I unloaded the 61 GMC, and drove the rest of the way to get to the show, and back home.

The truck is 100% original, except belts,hoses, oil, filters, a couple of light bulbs, brakes, and tires (though I have the original ones!). I even have the original fenders. I also have a binder filled with every piece of paper in the truck's history, from the original quote booklet (!) from the dealership, correspondence back and forth between the drawings for the funky dual rear wheel spacer, through and including every registration and insurance card since 1961. The previous owner moved about 5 minutes from where I grew up shortly after he bought the truck, so I would consider it a local truck, now living within 20 minutes from its original home!

Sorry for the thread drift-- back to your regularly scheduled 968s!

Boeing 71,

I'm not sure. I bought the car from the head of the local Porsche club here in France. He originally imported the car from Switzerland in turn.

Where was the one in AutoScout located? Do you have a link to the ad?

Thanks, I'm a big sucker for rarer colors. The car is in immaculate shape as well.

BTW, do you have access to ROW numbers to these cars? I'd like to know how many lagoon green cars are around in general.

I do not have ROW numbers, sorry.
If you followed the other thread we only have two Lagoon green coupes here in North America. No cabs at all. For the coupes one has full black interior and the other has the light grey/black interior. It is a cool color. The new owner of one of the cars is in Maryland, not too far from me, so I hope to get to see it some day.

Was your Lagoon a color to sample ordered car since it is a 94 (code 99)? We only had Lagoon as a special metallic paint option in 1992.

I just remember looking on auto scout 5 or so months ago and saw the lagoon green with blue interior for sale.

Rggale,

That is simply awesome. Thanks for the story. My first 'car' was a 1965 shortbed, 292. It shucked a rod bearing and we bored it out to 4" bore, put 327 12:1 pistons in it and made it a 312 straight six. Put HEI ignition, balanced the motor, used a Holley 350 2 brl. I truly loved that truck. I left for the Air Force and my brother traded it for hay.
