1968 Ford Mustang Additional Info:

This was a 6 year restoration project starting with a nice solid 1968 Mustang 'T" code fastback. The car was completely stripped to bare metal. All the body parts are orginal to the car except for a new drivers side quarter panel and the passenger side front floor pan. All the glass in the car is orginal with the factory tint except for the windshield which is new. The Shelby body parts ( scoops, deck lid, taillights and panel, the inboard headlights) are from Tony Branda. The car was professionally painted with PPG Kona Blue Metallic paint and clear coated with over the top strips. All the chrome trim was replaced with new, one piece over the windshield was dented when replacing the windshield a new one piece will be included with the car. The car has new '68 shelby 10 spoke 15 '' wheels with new tires.
The engine is a completely rebuilt 1969 428 cobra jet, bored 30 over. The engine has been balanced. It has a 588 lift cam police interceptor intake, adjustable rocker arms, 750 Holley carb, 9 quart Moroso oil pan with ford windage tray. Has new cast iron exhaust headers, and magnoflow exhaust. The 4 speed transmission came out of a low milage 390 fastback mustang and needed nothing. The rear end is a Ford 9", 3:50 posi traction with all new bearings and seals, the car has new power brakes,with Kelsy Hayes 2 piston disk up front with new 2 piece rotors, all new brakes in the back. Rear leaf springs are new heavy duty for cobra jets along with the front coil springs, all the front suspension is new with a new 1' sway bar and bushings. The car has lest then 1000 miles since restoration
I have been restoring old Fords for over 40 years and now I'm ready to let this one go, maybe to trade for the right new Shelby mustang. If you have any questions or you can contact me my phone 606-754-7002 or 606-899-0007
