I am selling this beautiful Mustang because I have too many cars and not enough time to use them. I really think it looks great in silver and it looks even better in person. This is a really nice "driver". It is not a perfect show car, that would cost twice as much. The paint is really glossy and deep. No dents or dings or stone chips (except there are two stone chips on each of the doors that were touched up). The car was restored by a previous owner, probably around 10-15 years ago. The engine runs great, it sounds really smooth, no noises. The transmission shifts great. The body has no rust except for some surface rust here and there underneath. The body/frame is solid. Torque boxes are good, see pic. The tires and wheels are in good condition. New front suspension. New power steering. New brake master cylinder.
If you know your Mustangs, you know a 1968 comes with a 289. I don't know the previous history of the car, but I think it is obvious it had a 351W transplanted into it. It really is a tasteful upgrade with the edlebrook intake and performance headers. It has full mufflers so it isn't obnoxiously loud, but you definitely hear the V8 when you open the throttle. I think both the engine and transmission are over-engineered and will last forever.
Since I purchased the car a few years ago, I have completely replaced the front suspension. Scott Drake upper and lower control arms, new shocks, etc. New power steering control valve and slave, new hoses, and tie rods. I have added the Pertronix distributor. This is a really nice upgrade, no more worrying about setting the points,dwell, etc. It is a modern electronic ignition system. New MSD Streetfire ignition cables.
There are a couple things that would are on my to-do list that I just never got around to. It leaks transmission oil around the kickdown lever on the trans. So this should be easy to fix, I would think you could pull it off the side and replace an o-ring. It is not the axle seal, that would be harder. In addition, the kickdown cable is not correctly connected to the the throttle. So the cable needs to be replaced. The drivers side rear window winder doesn't work. There is a slight clunk in the rear area when you go over a bump. I don't know what it is, everything looks tight. Just recently there is a very small squeak in the front suspension when going over bumps. Probably just some grease go washed away. Some of the body panels don't line up as well as I think they should, the front fenders and hood should be adjusted. The fenders and hood just bolt on and it should just be a matter of taking some time to rearrange them. But they really weren't that straight new from the factory anyway. And lastly the reverse lights are not connected. They weren't when I got it and I never got into connecting them. All these are pretty minor and just require a little time to sort them out. No major parts cost or labor cost.So bottom line is that it is a very solid car. I have tried to do my best to describe the car. I think I did a better job than most sellers on ebay that just try to hype up the car and leave out the flaws. Look at the high res pics. Don't buy one on ebay that doesn't show the underneath or has low res fuzzy pics. I feel I am looking for a very fair price. On the quick sell side of fair, but not "cheap". I feel I bought it for a very good price, and I am just looking to break even with all the parts and work I put into it already.Like I mentioned, I don't have a lot of time to waste. So keep in mind, you are bidding to purchase the car, you are not bidding for the right to look it over. Look it over before the end of the auction. You will not be able to claim that the description was incorrect, because it isn't. So the deposit is non-refundable if you decide to not purchase it once you win the auction.I will be very accommodating in being available to transfer the car. I will work with you on shipping it, but shipping is your responsibility.
