Description for Ford Mustang 1968

We are selling this 1968 Mustang convertible that has been owned by my uncle's since 1983. It's a factory J code with the 302 V8. The GT package was added without the front disc brakes. He no longer drives, so he is selling his beloved Mustang convertible which he has loved and babied in his garage and has rarely driven since he bought it in 1983. He bought this Mustang with 107500 miles on it and has only driven it 4500 more miles. He didn't want to wreck it so he only drove it for car shows and a handful of special occasions.

This Mustang is in good condition. Everything works on the car as expected except heater core which is starting to leak when car is turned on. The car has only been worked on mechanically since he baught it in 1983. The. At has a newer sending unit and Holley 4 barrel carb. The previous owner had patched the passenger rear floor board (in the pictures), the passinger side of yhe trunk (in the pictures), and some of the lower body panels were repaired prior to 1983. The car is very solid although the passenger torque box (also in the picture) should be replaced. All the fenders on the car have there factory stamping and original factory weld marks. The body is in solid condition, there are no dents, all body lines, and gaps look good. The paint looks good; however there are various chips in the paint. The power top is in decent condition; there are small speckles of discoloration in the top and a small hole in the driver's rear. The car has been sitting for several years in his garage, with it being started a couple of times a month. It was fired right up, sounds fantastic, and it was driven a few miles to get fresh gas, washed, and driven to storage, stalling out twice when coming to a complete stops. I suggest that the carbonator should be cleaned so that it won't stall. The transmission shifted well; the linkage seems slightly off from matching up with the gate which can be adjusted with new bushings which are inexpensive. The leather interior is in great condition: although there is a seem that has separated. The windshield washer reservoir has a cut in it and does not hold washer fluid. This Mustang is an attention getter it will need a little love and it will be a great car the next 50 years.
