Description for Ford Mustang 1968

My loss is your gain on this customized 1968 Mustang Coupe. This is not your Classic "Classic" Mustang. Why have a Concours correct Mustang when you can have a one of a kind retro stang designed and built how you want it? This car will turn heads once complete.

Why am I selling my project car? I was laid off from my employer in August and found a job 650 miles away so the car has to go to help me get caught up on bills as well as helping the relocation of my family.

History of the car as I know it. Car was restored in the 1990's. It had a 302. The car was originally Turquoise and during this restoration was converted from a manual to an automatic. I got the car around 2005. While driving it around I notice electrical issues. When I started looking into things I saw that the fuse box had been completely removed. So I decided that was not safe and I would rewire the whole car. That is when I heard about T5 5-speed conversions and also EFI conversion. My first car was a 66 Mustang and I had so much trouble with that car with points and the carb and didn't want to deal with it on this car. So I started the conversion. Well as with most people life got in the way of my restoration and the car set. I have worked on it a little at a time. Below is what I have and what still needs to be done.

The car has the following items:

  • · 302 motor replaced with a 1989 Bronco II 351 5.8L engine
  • · 1990 T5 5-speed transmission out of 5.0 mustang
  • · New flywheel, Clutch and throw out bearing
  • · Scott Drake T5 conversion kit $350 newhttp://www.drakeautomotivegroup.com/Store/Product/T5-67-KIT.aspx?wid=141
  • · 1990 Mustang Computer (there is also a spare 1988 Gt computer)
  • · Scott Drake EFI wiring harness $750 newhttp://www.drakeautomotivegroup.com/Store/Product/C5ZZ-14289-EFI.aspx?wid=141
  • · EZ2Wire complete car wiring kit $200 new
  • · New electric cooling fan from CJ pony parts installed (couple hundred dollars)
  • · New radiator
  • · New high torque mini starter
  • · March performance overdrive pullies
  • · Dakota Digital Dashboard $800 newhttp://www.dakotadigital.com/index.cfm/page/ptype=product/product_id=804/category_id=434/mode=prod/prd804.htm
  • · New 130 Amp 3G alternator (like what goes on a 93 Mustang)
  • · Headliner is in good shape but I have a new one in box with a new dome light
  • · New fuel pump with sending unit (this was around $400 CJ Pony parts I think)
  • · Dash pad is in good shape
  • · Dash board panels are new
  • · Carpet is new
  • · Door panels are new and still in box
  • · New seat belts
  • · I have installed a hydraulic clutch. (system needs bled and linkage at clutch fork needs adjustment)
  • · Long tube headman headers with O2 sensors
  • · New heater core (heater currently bypassed)
  • · Halogen headlights
  • · Cold air intake still in the box (install if you want)
  • · Battery relocated to the trunk (battery needs replaced)
  • · New antenna in package
  • · New front lip spoiler
  • New hood latch

Still on the to do list that I did not get to:

  • Bleed/adjust hydraulic clutch system
  • Bleed/adjust brakes
  • Heater is bypassed this was going to be hooked up when motor pulled for rebuild
  • Rebuild motor (up to you. Motor runs but I wanted a fresh start)
  • Body work and paint job
  • Look at window system (they are hard to roll up and down) was thing electric windows)
  • In the engine bay I have installed two support arms. (The one on the driver's side needs redone and moved so it can be lowered) this will allow hood to sit flat)
  • I also was going to make all of the wiring neater looking.
  • Possibly replace floor pans (up to you)
  • Replace wheels and tires
  • Secure battery in trunk and add shutoff switch. Inertia switch for fuel pump has been installed
  • Battery is completelydead and needs replaced.

Buyer and Seller Responsibility

InternationalBuyers More than Welcome.

I will help with shipping anywhere in the world but shipping cost, scheduling and loading is responsibility of the buyer. The car is sold as is-where is with no refunds or exchanges.The $500 deposit via paypal is NON-refundable.

I encourage anyone to come and inspect the car before you buy it on Saturday October 28th between the hours of 8AM and 3PM in Salisbury NC.I may be able to schedule another date or time but not sure. It's up to the buyer to see the car before bidding. You are not buying the car here for a chance to come and look. Please be serious. The car is almost 50 years old so don't expect a perfect car. This is not your grand pa's old classic Sunday driver.Payment must be made in person with cash or a Bank of America cashier's check. This check can be brought to pick up or it can be mailed but must clear the bank first before shipping. Full payment has to be made by first Saturday of the auctions end. Failure to make full payment gives me the option to sell the car to another buyer and breaches and contract.

Since I am working out of state the car will have to be picked up in Salisbury NC early on a Saturday morning only so we can get title notarized at bank. Unless we can work out another way.

Domestic and International buyers are more than welcome to buy the car if needing the car shipped. The buyer/shipper is responsible for all shipping arrangements and payments. As well as loading the car and securing everything down as I will not be able to help.

I am not responsible for any part of the car that was not disclosed as it's hard to describe every inch of the car. I have described everything to the best of my knowledge. If you have questions, please ask.Sold with a clear NC title.
