BUILT 302 W/APPROX 425HP, 6 POINT CAGE, 4 WHEEL DISCS, C4 TRANS, 9-INCH FORD!
The fiercest street cars are always born on the track, and this 1968 Mustang coupe packs a heck of a punch. The 302 has the right attitude, and underneath, the hardware is built for combat, with a cage inside, 4-wheel disc brakes, and enough traction to make sure every pony gets to the pavement. Just imagine the fun you could have with this Mustang...
Nobody expects a white car to hand out a beating, but this musclebound Mustang is ready, willing, and able. Of course, the blacked-out fiberglass cowl-induction hood gives it away, and the lift-off deck lid is made of the same lightweight stuff to shave even more weight. The aftermarket panels fit well and were refinished at the same time as the rest of the car, so everything matches and lines up like it should. There's also a single pinstripe highlighting the C-scoop in the rear quarters, but there's no denying that classic Mustang profile. There are actually a minimum of frills, although this one does carry chrome bumpers and original stainless around the window openings, and it's pretty obvious that someone invested time in getting the bodywork straight before the paint went on.
Like the exterior, the interior is a mix of nice original gear and race-ready hardware. Most noticeable is the 6-point roll cage, which has removable door bars, so that helps keep things a little more civilized when you're not running at 10/10ths. The black buckets are standard Mustang fare, and the no-frills interior still looks great thanks to Ford's talented stylists. The trick B&M shifter controls a quick-witted 3-speed automatic transmission and that Grant small-diameter wheel is easy to grip and looks right in the racy pony. Auto Meter gauges are neat reproductions of vintage Stewart Warner dials and fit in the Mustang dash like they were born there. There's no radio, of course, as it was replaced by a switch panel for some of the car's more vital functions, and if you need heat you've already totally missed the point of this car. The trunk shows off more combat-tested hardware, including a racing fuel cell and twin Optima gel cell batteries to help with weight distribution.
Don't dismiss the 302 cubic inch small block, because this one is a serious over-achiever. A full-roller valvetrain means it happily spins to the moon, and with deep-breathing equipment like a Demon 4-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, and long-tube headers it makes an estimated 425 horsepower. A high-flow aluminum radiator keeps the all-business engine bay cool and you can see why they'd need that tall cowl hood. The C4 3-speed automatic transmission is no handicap, either, as it bangs off lightning quick shifts and feeds twist to the 9-inch rear end. The suspension is augmented with Shelby-style traction bars out back and the new Flowmaster exhaust system sounds downright wicked. 4-wheel disc brakes provide plenty of whoa for all that go, and live behind period Cragar mags with 165R15 front and 215/60/15 rear tires for the right stance.
Mustangs have always been fun and fast, but this one takes it up to an altogether new level. Enjoy some race-quality hardware in your street car and never worry about being beaten again. Call today!
