1968 Ford Mustang Convertible
Pay attention & don’t be caught sleeping. This is the deal that you dream about finding. Just arrived 6/18/2012. Complete photos posted shortly but I wanted to get it posted to website so the right person looking for a great deal knows it is for sale @ a stupid low price; but not for long if I decide to do the remaining work needed to complete the restoration.
I just purchased car from an elderly gentleman who lives in nearby Brunswick, GA. He had slowly been restoring in his spare time but recently became unable to finish due to declining health issues. Car has been 90% restored but still needs just a couple of body & interior items installed to complete restoration along with a good engine bay detailing & undercarriage detailing of the work recently completed. Previous owner stated to me he had over $24K invested. It has some custom touches he chose to have which include ‘67 rear quarters, a billet style grille, shaved door handles with remote control key fob door actuators, elimination of some exterior trim pieces which include insignias, lettering, rocker panel moldings. He also chose to have cloth inserts installed on the seat upholstery.
Exterior paint finished in Red with a matching Red interior with Black carpet & dashboard complemented with a White convertible top.
It features the original # matching C Code 302 C.I. V8 engine with chrome valve covers, air cleaner, & oil pan. It has an automatic C4 transmission. It is equipped with both power steering & power top option.
The following expensive & hard work has been already completed & installed:
* Rebuilt engine & transmission with less than 25 miles
* New dual exhaust system
* New premium quality exterior paint finish
* New convertible top & weather-stripping with glass window & brand new top boot
* New rear quarters
* New floor boards
* New seat upholstery & carpet
* New shocks front & rear New RWL radial tires (less than 25 miles)
* New Crager 5 spoke 15” chrome wheels
* New brakes shoes, wheel cylinders, drums turned, all new brake lines, & hoses
* New fuel tank & fuel lines
* New windows felts & window weather-stripping
* New remote control door actuators that pop open doors with a push of key fob button (they work great)
* New trunk mat
* New battery, tray, & hold down hardware
* New dash pad
The following parts are brand new & present with the car. They have not been installed:
* Door & trunk seals
* Driver & passenger side mirrors
* Billet style front grille
* LH / RH grille opening moldings
* Door panels
* Window cranks & knobs
* Fuel door gas cap assy
* Speedometer cable assy
* Misc. fasteners
The following parts are not present with car & still needs to be purchased:
* Back up lights
* Radio antenna
* Windshield wiper arms
* Sun visors (new chrome visor swivel arms installed)
This car runs & drives like new but still needs the headlights, turn signals, horn hooked up, & back up lights installed. It has a great sounding dual exhaust system attributed to a new set of old style glass pack mufflers. It sits right, looks old school cool with the 5-spoke Cragers, has a great fitting brand new convertible top with glass window, & a quality paint job. The door jams & inside door panels have all been painted & finished correctly. The body is straight & there are no dings or scratches in the paint.
I’m contemplating finishing the car as needed but still undecided; therefore I will currently discount the car in it’s present state of completion. I will decide in the next couple of days if I should complete myself the items still needing finishing. If that happens, the price will go up accordingly. Here is your chance to own a 90% restored Mustang convertible for way under market value. All the hard work & expense has already been completed. I have left thousands on the table for the right guy who can do the final touches needed to complete the restoration. If you think you want, don’t hesitate to call m
