1968 Ford Mustang

1968 Ford Mustang Fastback 428 Cobra Jet C/Stock Automatic "Jr. Stock" Drag Car. This car had been raced through the 70'shere in New England but we were never able to pin down much specific history on it,so we took it the extra mile andfinished it torepresent a period correct dealership's version ofa 1968 factory lightweight Cobra Jet drag Mustang. If you weren't one of the50 lucky recipients of the factory drag Mustangs in 1968, ou could have had your local dealership build you something like this to compete. The car was originally an early productionNew Jersey built Highland Green C code 289 automatic Fastback with black standard interior. It was re-paintedred once long ago, nd you can still see the original Highland Green in the door jambs. The paint is faded with chips and cracks here and there but has a great looking old patina. We like cars that show character and this car's got it!The lettering is hand painted, ot vinyl. There were faint traces of lettering visible when we got the car so we repainted what we could see andimprovised the rest. Factory original "GT" style hood.The car was also originally equipped with AC and power steering, oth of which have been deleted. Overall the car is in great shape for a Mustang that has never been restored. The body is very straight and solid. It has a few very small bubbles starting to come through here and there, nd there is a small hole in the trunk lid under one of the stickers. The front floor pans have been replaced with non-correct panels, ut otherwise the rest of the floor appears original and solid. The sub frames are solid with just a little rust beginning on the front torque boxes. There is a spot of rust on top of the front inner fenders on either side between the shock towers and firewall, nd a few other spots down low within the inner fenders. The trunk is solid with only minor rust beginning at the rear corners of the trunk floor. From inside the trunk you can also see some very old patch work to the rear lower quarters. The car was very well kept it's whole life and doesn't really need to be restored in my opinion. Interior is all original including upholstery and even the carpet. The seats are excellent with no rips or tears. The headliner does have some rips and will need to be replaced. Stock steering wheel, enter console, nd vintage Sun Super Tach with Stewart Warner oil pressure and temp gauges. Original glass is good all around.

This is a fantastic looking car that gets tons of attention everywhere it goes. Itruns, ounds,and stops great, nd has been driven to several car shows and cruises.
