1968 Ford Mustang Convertible
I purchased this car in the Fall of 2017. The prior owners
had started a complete restoration in 2001. The car was completely re-painted
and sections of floor pan were replaced. The car then sat for 15 years and two
owners without any work being done. During that time the engine and transmission
When I purchased the car it was in excellent shape. During
the winter of 2017-18 I did the following:
-Installed power front disc brakes.
-Installed new rear brakes.
-Rebuilt rear end.
-Installed Power steering with all new steering components.
-Installed new exhaust.
-Installed new cooling system with radiator, pump, hoses.
-Installed all new suspension, springs and shocks.
-Installed new 17” American Racing wheels and new Tires.
-Applied epoxy rust-convertor to all interior metal.
-Installed complete new interior including sound deadener
mats, seats, carpets, upholstery, mats, dashboard, seat belts, door cards.
-Installed complete new convertible top with electric
-Installed front spoiler and Shelby decals.
-Completed all underbody repairs. Used epoxy convertor on
all surfaces and applied truck bed liner under entire car.
-Installed new fuel tank and gauge assembly.
- Installed rebuilt engine with new 4-Barrel Holley Carb,
aluminum intake, electronic ignition, new pulleys and belts and hoses, new air
cleaner and valve covers, new pumps, new battery.Overall the car shows very well. It is certainly NOT a concours show car. It is a Thursday night Drive-In car that looks great!The paint has has some chips repaired in a few spots. The lower left rear quarter was evidently re-sprayed at some point and is a little darker. You have to look carefully to see it in the photo.It is a base-clear paint job and I think some time with some compound and a wheel will bring it out even more.
