Car Description

1968 Ford Mustang 2-dr Hardtop Coupe powered by a 4.9L V8 302cui Ford Windsor small block engine and driven by a T5 5-spd floor-shift manual transmission.

          Rebuilt 302cui ‘Roller Cam’ Windsor
          T5 5-spd Manual 
          Power Assisted 4-Wheel Disc Brakes
          Rack & Pinion Steering
          4-bbl carburetor
          Aluminium ‘Performer’ Heads
          Aluminium Radiator w/ Thematic Fan
          Aluminium Intake
          Dual Exhaust System

This Mustang Coupe left Ford’s San Jose, California plant in late April 1968 as a C-code 289cui V8 car with a C4 3-speed automatic floor shift transmission. The car was delivered into the DSO of Los Angeles, California and it has been a West Coast car all it’s life. The original drivetrain is now gone and has been replaced with a rebuilt 302cui Roller Cam V8 Windsor engine, matched to a Borg Warner T5 5-speed floor shift manual transmission. Originally painted Lime Gold with Ivy Gold interior, it now externally wears Candy Apple Red paint and standard Black Vinyl interior.

This car is a great driver and shows only some minor exterior paint bubble rust on the driver side lower door and rear quarter. Cosmetically the paint is what you would call a “20 footer”, and the drivers side rear quarter has been replaced some time ago and showing a slightly different lustre. Mechanically it has been upgraded with power assisted 4-wheel disc brakes, new Rack & Pinion steering, aluminium radiator w/ thematic fan and a host of Edelbrock equipment including aluminium ‘Performer’ heads, aluminium intake, 4-bbl carburetor & air cleaner. Other upgrades include front & rear suspension work and a new dual exhaust system. The car has also been fitted with a roll cage and the original front seats have been replaced with ‘Recaro-style’ front bucket seats.

Overall the car presents very well and is a great solid platform to take even further.
