1968 Ford Mustang Description:

Why am I selling my project car? I was laid off from my employer in August 2017 and found a job 650 miles away and have been in Florida since. The car has been sitting untouched at my house in Salisbury NC and I am needing to sale it. You will be picking the car up in Salisbury,NC zip code 28147. It has been over a year since the last time I started the car so it may or may not crank at this point. It is a project car and I feel I have it priced to sell.

History of the car as I know it. Car was restored at some point in the 80's or 90's. It had a 302. The car was originally Turquoise and during this restoration was converted from a manual to an automatic and painted red. I got the car around 2005. While driving it around I notice electrical issues. When I started looking into things I saw that the fuse box had been completely removed. So I decided that was not safe and I would rewire the whole car. That is when I heard about T5 5-speed conversions and also EFI conversion. As the car was not concourse correct I decided to make how I wanted, so I started the conversion. Well as with most people life got in the way of my restoration and the car set. I have worked on it a little at a time. Below is what I have and what still needs to be done.

The car has the following items:

  • ·302 motor replaced with a 1989 Bronco 351 5.8L engine
  • ·1990 T5 5-speed transmission out of 5.0 mustang
  • ·New flywheel, Clutch and throw out bearing
  • ·Scott Drake T5 conversion kit $350 newhttp://www.drakeautomotivegroup.com/Store/Product/T5-67-KIT.aspx?wid=141
  • ·1990 Mustang Computer (there is also a spare 1988 GT computer)
  • ·Scott Drake EFI wiring harness $750 newhttp://www.drakeautomotivegroup.com/Store/Product/C5ZZ-14289-EFI.aspx?wid=141
  • ·EZ2Wire complete car wiring kit $200 new
  • ·New electric cooling fan from CJ pony parts installed (couple hundred dollars)
  • ·New radiator
  • ·New high torque mini starter
  • ·March performance overdrive pullies
  • ·Dakota Digital Dashboard $800 newhttp://www.dakotadigital.com/index.cfm/page/ptype=product/product_id=804/category_id=434/mode=prod/prd804.htm
  • ·New 130 Amp 3G alternator (like what goes on a 93 Mustang)
  • ·Headliner is in good shape but I have a new one in box with a new dome light
  • ·New fuel pump with sending unit (this was around $400 CJ Pony parts I think)
  • ·Dash pad is in good shape
  • ·Dash board panels are new
  • ·Carpet is new
  • ·Door panels are new and still in box
  • ·New seat belts
  • ·I have installed a cheap hydraulic clutch. (system needs bled and linkage at clutch fork needs adjustment) I would look at replacing with a better kit
  • ·Long tube headman headers with O2 sensors
  • ·New heater core (heater currently bypassed)
  • ·Halogen headlights
  • ·Cold air intake still in the box (install if you want)
  • ·Battery relocated to the trunk (battery needs replaced)
  • ·New antenna in package
  • ·New front lip spoiler
  • New hood latch

Still on the to do list that I did not get to:

  • work on hydraulic clutch system
  • work on brakes
  • Heater is bypassed this was going to be hooked up when motor pulled for rebuild
  • Rebuild motor (up to you. Motor runs but I wanted a fresh start)
  • Body work and paint job
  • Look at window system (they are hard to roll up and down) was thinking electric window upgrade)
  • In the engine bay I have installed two support arms. (The one on the driver's side needs redone and moved so it can be lowered) this will allow hood to sit flat)
  • I also was going to make all of the wiring neater looking.
  • Possibly replace floor pans (up to you)
  • Replace wheels and tires
  • Secure battery in trunk and add shutoff switch. Inertia switch for fuel pump has been installed
  • Battery is completelydead and needs replaced.
  • exhaust system replacement from headers on back.

Buyer and Seller Responsibility

InternationalBuyers More than Welcome.

I will help with shipping anywhere in the world but shipping cost, scheduling and loading is responsibility of the buyer. The car is sold as is-where is with no refunds or exchanges.The $300 deposit via paypal is NON-refundable as I will have to drive from Florida to NC and is due within 24 hours of auctions end.

The car will need to be picked up on a Friday,Saturday morning, or Monday unless we can work something else out as I will be coming from Florida. If choosing to BUY IT NOW, I am not available for pickup until 10/8/18 the earliest.Please be serious as I will be traveling from Florida to complete the transaction. The car is 50 years old so don't expect a perfect car. This is not a concourse correct car.Payment must be made in person with cash or a Bank of America cashier's check. This check/cash can be brought to pick up. I bank with BOA, they are open on Saturday mornings where the title can be notarizedand/or money transferred. If shipping the car the cashier's check must be mailed and clear the bank before shipping. Failure to make full payment by arranged pickup gives me the option to sell the car to another buyer and breaches the contract.

Domestic and International buyers are more than welcome to buy the car if needing the car shipped. The buyer/shipper is responsible for all shipping arrangements and payments. As well as loading the car and securing everything down as I will not be able to help.

I am not responsible for any part of the car that was not disclosed as it's hard to describe everything on a 50 year old project car. I have described everything to the best of my knowledge. If you have questions, please ask.Sold with a clear NC title.
