For Sale: 1968 Ford Mustang in Fairmont City, Illinois


Vehicle Description

Up for sale in our Tampa Showroom is the epitome of Resto-mod, the 1968 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Convertible Resto-Mod. This full Rotisserie restoration was matched together with every feature you could want piled into a classic 1968 Mustang Convertible. To start, the car was restored by Knucklehead Restoration LLC and comes backed up with an entire build sheet from start to finish, from the speakers to the engine. This beast has been built with a 4.6l 2V engine, producing around 265 horsepower, and backed up to a T45 Borg Warner transmission, which gives you unbelievable reliability while shifting hard through the gears. The motor and transmission both came out of a 1998 Ford Mustang GT, so this car is keeping true to the Mustang name and badges. Both have been completely rebuilt and fitted inside the engine bay of an original 1968 Mustang Convertible. The body was done in the sstyling of the legendary 1968 Shelby GT500KR, and even the undercarriage was painted to match the exterior in Grabber Orange. This little restomod is ready for the show, from its Shelby inspired styling, to the growling horsepower that you can only find in a fuel injected 4.6l V8. The interior continues the resto mod theme, with the paint matched door panels with black interior accents. The center console houses the Chrome ball shifter, the dashboard has been fitted with custom digital gauges that glow with a stunning blue as soon as you turn on the ignition. The seats have been custom fitted from a late model Mustang as well, and are designed to be sport bucket seats, to give you extreme comfort under heavy turns and acceleration. The air conditioning was fitted in the car as well, utilizing the original A/C ducts that came with the car. This car is solely built to impress from front to back, from the Shelby body, the Grabber Orange paint job, the late model interior, and of course, the 4.6l V8 sneaking up under the hood. Options include A/C, AM/FM Radio, Manual Convertible Top, Power Brakes, Power Steering, Leather Interior, Racing Wheels, Radial Tires and a bad 4.6l V8.
