1968 Ford MustangDESCRIPTION
You are viewing a 1968 Ford Mustang Fastback project car. Car was originally equipped with a 289 2 bbl automatic, power steering, 8 inch rear end, and the original color was Gold with a black interior. It is originally a west coast car that found its' way to Maine in 1984. It was only driven less than a year in Maine, and has been stored in a barn since 1985. Car body is very dry with minimal rust.
*Car is going to need a radiator support with front fender aprons, left and right, due to a previous accident back in the day. Front radiator support and fender aprons will need to be changed. (They were repaired back then, but poorly done, in my opinion. Previous owner said it was his first attempt at body work.)
*Fenders are very solid - they are currently just resting on the car and not lined up. The previous owner had started to dismantle the car for restoration. The body has it's share of dents and dings.
*Quarter panels are very solid, but in my opinion, due to the dents and dings, should be changed.
*The roof has a couple dents as well - the good part is you can get right at them and work them out and NOT have to change out the panel.
*Doors are also very solid, but do have their share of dents as well.
*Trunk floors are very solid and appear to be useable - will most likely NOT need to be changed.
*Frame rails, rockers, and torque boxes are dry and original.
*Floor pans appear to be very solid, but I'm sure once you start cleaning them up and sandblasting, you may find some pin holes. In my opinion, the car will NOT need full floor pans, just simple patching here and there.
*The car DOES run and yard drive under its' own power from the current 351 W. (Car originally came with a 289.) The dash pad is in exceptionally good shape. This is a fold down rear seat car, which is intact, as shown in the photos.
This car is very complete, but is missing parts here and there. What you see is what you get. Not shown in the photo is the rear window, but it DOES come with the car.
I purchased this car for myself to build a BULLITT clone, but I just do not have the time. I have been trying to buy a Boss 302 for a few years now from a friend and a few weeks ago, he finally agreed to sell it to me, so some of my projects have to go. The car is advertised locally, and I do reserve the right to end the auction at any time.
This is a project car that needs a restoration, and is being sold as is, with no warranties. I do not have the title, but the new owner will be passed the current registration, along with a bill of sale, which they will be able to use in their state to apply for a title.
Winning bidder will send, by bank check, a down payment of $2,500 to be received by us no later than 5 days after auction end. Balance to be paid within 2 weeks and before vehicle is shipped. Vehicle can remain here for a bit while you arrange shipping - it's not in the way.
THANKS FOR LOOKING!
