1968 Ford Mustang Description
I bailed a friend out of a failed father/son project. Son got older, college on the horizon and lost interest. (He got a truck). This is a great project to finish. I only got it to help out a friend and I have too many projects of my own.
Original V8 car.
This coupe was 98% rust free when they purchased it. The car was stripped to bare metal and then professionally painted (dark metallic blue) (needs a wet sand and buff after final assembly) Base/Clear. Because this was supposed to be a driver for their son, there wasn't much actual bodywork done so there are dings and small dents. All of these would be easily removed by Dent Doctor or something like that. Or, sand it down, fix them, change color, whatever. Excellent platform to work from. There was ZERO rust in the body, no bondo, no sheet metal patching, it's all Ford steel.The floors had typical rust in the foot wells so instead of patching them, the floors (front and back) were replaced with new ones. The trunk area is immaculate and was cleaned and painted along with the gas tank. The entire front suspension was rebuilt using a Kanter auto kit, including new lower control arms. Rebuilt C4 auto transmission new torque converter. The 302 needs a rebuild but it has good compression and turns freely. All the new gaskets and weatherstripping is included and needs to be installed. Needs an interior kit but all the original parts are there. New heater box, new heater core, new blower motor, new control cables. LED taillights with new lenses. New bolt kit (chassis and sheet metal) is included, some has been used to assemble car to this point. Blinker hood. Front and rear glass is good, not installed so headliner can be installed correctly. From what I can tell it seems that 99.99% of all the parts/trim etc are there. I used to restore Mustangs and there is nothing missing that I've noticed, definitely nothing hard to find or expensive. Let me know if you want pictures of something specific or if you want to know if a part is there.
I am not looking to make a ton on this, I only want to get my garage space back. There is close to 10K invested in the car. The stripping and paint alone was $5K, trans $800, no clue how much all those rubber seals cost, the led taillights etc etc.
This car comes with a clear title notarized by the previous owner. I'm probably forgetting a lot as this wasn't my project. Bid with confidence, hard to go wrong with this one. The parts are worth more than the starting bid...
I can deliver within a few hours of Raleigh, NC for the cost of fuel. WILL NOT SELL OUTSIDE OF US. Car is for sale locally and I reserve the right to end auction early for cash in hand local sale.
