If you are looking for a BIG BLOCK 428 Mustang that is built right, has all the go-fast mods that we all want and is bad a$$, continue reading. The 1968 Mustang for many enthusiasts is a favorite. Styling and performance had evolved since 1965. This Mustang is an original 6-cylinder car with manual floor shift. It was owned by the same family for 36 years from 1980 to 2016. It was left original until it was passed down to the youngest son. When he acquired the car, he removed the original engine, transmission and rear. He removed the interior and striped and painted the car in its current color Mazda Purple. At this point the project came to a halt. This is when the current owner purchased the vehicle. The build began with a 428 Cobra Jet FE engine with the C casting on the back of the block. Production date was March 5th, 1969. It still retains its original bore. Ross Racing Pistons, Arp Hardware, Competition Cams Roller Rockers and camshaft and Edelbrock Aluminum Heads make up the internals. We are not done yet though. A Holley 850 Double Pumper Carb, Aluminum Intake manifold, MSD ignition, Ceramic Headers, Flowmaster 2.5 inch aluminized exhaust are just some of the modifications. Power meets the pavement with a Centerforce 11 inch clutch a Tremac transmission and a Strange 9 rear with Strange guts and axels. The front brakes are factory Ford 4 piston disc, the rear are drum. It has a Wilwood master cylinder with proportioning valve. The electrical system has been upgraded as well with the installation of a Painless Wiring system. All of the original wiring was removed from the car. All the gauges work as well as the interior and exterior lighting. It has a set of original Eleanor wheels wrapped in new BF Goodrich radials. The suspension has all new bushings, shocks, sway bars and big block springs. It has power steering a Powermaster Starter and Alternator. The battery has been relocated to the trunk and the car has a kill switch. The fuel tank has been sumped and there is a new fuel pump. The interior seats are original to the car, they show minor wear but are in great shape. The rear seat is folding. The carpet, dash pad, dash trim, door panels, door handles, window cranks and just about everything else in the interior is new. The stereo was installed with front and rear panel speakers. The exterior is highlighted by new bumpers, new taillight trim, new headlights, and a new Billet Grille. The hood scoop is 1970 Mach 1. Eleanor inspired side scoops and trunk lid with extensions complete the look of this Magnificent Mustang.
