  1968 World Series by Baseball Almanac
Along with his American League equal, the Detroit Tigers' Denny McLain, both had combined for a whopping fifty-three wins and nineteen shutouts (Gibson: 22 wins, 13 shutouts and McLain: 31 wins, 6 shutouts).
As was becoming the standard, pitching dominated the World Series contest and nothing would change in 1968.
1968 has often been referred to as "the year of the pitcher" and the World Series was no different - Denny McLain of the Tigers, a thirty-one (31) game winner during the regular season, versus Bob Gibson of St. Louis, a 1.12 earned run average champion.

 Pajo: 1968: Pitchfork Record Review   (Site not responding. Last check: )
So if 1968 feels like a milestone in Pajo's career, it's not because of any quantum leap in his songwriting-- he's sturdy and deliberate as ever-- but because it feels like a hard-won denouement.
His songwriting aesthetic comes into sharp focus-- Pajo coaxes out serene, overcast melodies from music that's as ineffably weird as it is unostentatious, maximizing the subtleties of his utilitarian voice to wring every available drop of aphoristic intrigue from his meditations on spirituality, folkloric revisions, and sinister love songs.
1968 bucks that trend, and any discussion of it has to start with "Who's That Knocking", which sets the bar impossibly high for its consistently fine yet pale-by-comparison remainder and has two things that Pajo's dreamy washes usually lack-- an instantly memorable melody and subtle yet devastating dynamic shifts.

 Amazon.com: 1968: The Year That Rocked the World: Books: Mark Kurlansky   (Site not responding. Last check: )
1968 is a thorough and loving (perhaps a bit too loving of the boomer generation) tapestry - or time capsule.
Mark Kurlansky's entertaining book amply justifies his thesis that 1968 was a watershed year, in which peoples around the world fundamentally reassessed their visions of themselves and of their governments.
Given that 1968 occurred not only well after the Soviets' similar invasion in Hungary, but after decades of imposition of a slave labor system that imprisoned millions in gulags, this is a breathtakingly absurd statement.

 FORDification.com - 1968 Ford Pickup VIN Data Plate Codes
Thus, the first truck in Kansas City production in 1968 would be assigned C00,000, as the first truck assigned to San Jose would also be C00,000.
The 1975 Ford Master Parts Catalog shows the 1968 figures as C00,001 thru D82,000 (starting one unit earlier and ending one unit later).
However, reportedly the figures in the shop manuals are off some because they were printed at the beginning of the production year run, and I've also heard from several truck owners who report higher unit numbers than those listed here...so the research will continue.
