For Sale: 1968 Ford Mustang in Houston, Texas

Vehicle Description

I acquired this 1968 Ford Mustang convertible in 2018. The vehicle underwent a complete rotisserie teardown and build, which included a 427ci V8 (520HP/525TQ) engine equipped with AFR cylinder heads, a Borla eight-stack throttle body system, Holley fuel injection, a March Performance pulley system, and a stainless-steel exhaust with Borla resonators and Thrash mufflers. Shifting is handled by a 4R70W four-speed automatic transmission. Additional equipment includes a 9″ rear end, an Eaton Truetrac differential, and 3.70 gears. The car rides on 17″ wheels and features Wilwood disc brakes and Total Control Products coilover suspension. The exterior boasts a Kona Blue finish with black stripes, complemented by a black soft top.

Inside, the interior was refreshed with TMI seating trimmed in black leather. Notable features include a Classic Auto Air climate control system, Dakota Digital gauges, and a Kenwood head unit linked to Focal speakers and a Pioneer amplifier and subwoofer. The cabin also includes low-back front bucket seats and a rear bench upholstered in black leather, coordinated with a TMI dashpad, door panels, and center console.

The steering wheel is mounted on an Ididit tilting column, and the instrument cluster features Dakota Digital instrumentation, including a 160-mph speedometer, an 8k-rpm tachometer, and auxiliary gauges. The digital odometer shows approximately 6k miles, all since the build, total original mileage is unknown.

Legendary 17″ wheels are mounted with BFGoodrich g-Force tires. Wilwood multi-piston calipers are fitted over cross-drilled and slotted discs, and rack and pinion steering is equipped. Suspension components sourced from Total Control Products include adjustable coilovers at all four corners, a shock tower brace, subframe connectors, and revised sway bars.
