Let Me Tell You About the Owner...
Mike's a nice guy who unfortunately let time get away from him on this Mustang. He bought it from the original owner in 1990, so that makes him the second owner, and has done a lot of work on it since, including rebuilding the engine and transmission and giving it a new paintjob. He has a Marti report authenticating its rarity and even the license plate frames from Harrold Ford, the dealership where this car was bought brand-new in the sixties.
For a long time in Mike's world, it was just blue sky and his ride; but time caught up with him, and now he's got a wife and kids and all kinds of things that keep him from finishing this Mustang. Mike feels that its time for this rare Mustang to go to a new owner, someone who can finish her restoration and get her back on the road where she belongs.
Thank you for helping us save this beauty! She needs to be in the right hands: someone that will garage her, restore her, and love her.
What makes this 'Stang so great is that it is a 1968 Ford Mustang GT California Special, one of only 4,118 ever made. Mike has a Marti Report to authenticate this. It has the original C-code 289 V8 and the original C-4 automatic transmission, which Mike rebuilt about 1000 miles ago. It also has power steering (which is leaking), power brakes with discs on front, and air conditioning. When Mike rebuilt the motor, he installed 351 Windsor heads (though he still has the original 289 heads, which will be included with the purchase), JBA Shortie headers, an Edelbrock 4v carburetor and aluminum intake. He also replaced the water pump and radiator, so this car runs great and stays cool. The paintjob does not match the original color but is in very good shape. The interior is in ready-to-restore condition, with no major damage or heavy wear, though the rear seat is missing. The undercarraige is solid and rust-free, and the exhaust is like-new. For overall frame integrity and preservation, MustangOnlyOne gives this car an 8.5 out of 10 points as a ready-to-restore car, as some of its original components (paintjob, carburetor) have not been preserved and would be costly to mend to make the car numbers-matching again, but otherwise it is a solid car with no major damage. Furthermore, the major work in restoring the engine, transmission and exhaust system has already been completed, and the paintjob looks great if you're not looking to make it numbers-matching.
