1968 Ford OtherFor sale is my 1968 Ford Country Sedan. It's a survivor car! Pulled it out of its 25+ year slumber from a garage in North Bergen, J. When's the last time you saw one of these? Did your folks have one? Did your friends uncle have one? Taken long trips in one? Well here is the opportunity to get one of the coolest cars on ebay. I havent seen many listed in the past year, nd non in this condition. This car is drive-away ready. It's not a perfect show room car that you wont want to take out on a rainy day. This car is a driver and it drives so SMOOTH! The original owners were local to me, ut had this car stashed away in their garage. The transmission was the reason it had been parked. The seats were wrapped in plastic, o upon removal of the vinyl I was greeted by beautiful clean, ear-free seat upholstery.
The brakes... OH THE BRAKES on this car a phenomenal. When I first drove it, was hesitant to get up to any speed. Once I got a feel for the brakes, hey can halt this beast in a hurry! Big power disc brakes and large finned drums in the rear. I replaced all of the hard lines, oft lines, ardware, ads, urned the rotors, eplaced the seals and lubricated everything in order to have perfect brake function. The results are my favorite thing about this car.
I am an ASE certified High School instructor. I performed all of the work, ncluding the transmission work. I should have receipts for all of the parts. The rear window regulator was rebuilt, he doors all open and close perfectly, ights work, have invested countless hours into this project and I am VERY pleased with the outcome.
Things she needs:- Never tired repairing/recharging the AC system although I did install a new belt.- I disconnected the heater core (didn't want to damage it, hile getting the carb setup and heat cycling)- The windshield washer reservoir was leaking, o i pulled it out to repair.- There is a spot under the rear passenger floorboard that is starting to rust through. Aside from this, he floors are in GREAT shape. This area is really an oddity.- There are a few (2-3) spots towards the lower sections of the body that are rusty or rusted through.
- The spare tire well is rusted at the bottom (no surprise there).
