100% Original, Numbers Matching, California Car.
No Rust, No Body Filler, No Salt. Sold and built in
San Jose, Ca, it has been garage kept, only been
wet when washed with 43,667 original miles. In 1986
it received a 100% Frame off restoration using 100%
original parts. The original J-code numbers matching
engine is a 302 4V. A “J-code” engine alone is a true
piece of history.
The original W (Type C-4 AUT) 4 Speed Automatic
performs perfectly with no leaks.
The axle code is 5 indicating a 3.00:1 gear ratio
The 1968 model is the first year Ford offered factory
AC on a convertible and this one has it. Previous
models had aftermarket unit bolted under the
dashboard. This car has also the rare large original
compressor, but it has been rebuilt to be compatible
with R-34 freon. (R-34 conversion). (R-12 freon is no
longer available). AC is very cold.
The car is very strong and fresh has like new factory
heavy duty front and rear suspension. Notice the
ride height, not soft and low like most early small
block and 6 cylinder vintage ponies. Very Clean.
Looks, runs and drives great. No leaks, no smoke no
cooling issues. Interior looks as good as the outside.
Canvas electric convertible top works perfectly.
A few very small scratches from car doors. Factory
AM radio. Power steering works great, handling is
smooth and easy. The drum brakes are very good
but do require leg strength so I allow a little extra
Appearance is fantastic, constant head turner. Horns
honk people wave it's like being in a one car parade.
This car will treat you right and last as long as you
take care of it. No bad tendencies and a lot of fun to
Below are some great questions people have asked.
Posting to help you imagine this Pony in your stable.
(1) Are you the original owner? No
(2) When have you been using it? Garage kept by
me since 2002 when I bought from my Dad who did
the restoration in 1986. He had a Mustang
restoration company. This was one of 3 show cars
he entered in car shows and it won many for its high
scoring originality. Had 39k miles in 2002 and is
around 43k now. Mostly used for tootling around with
kids and parades etc. Kids grown and it’s not used
much anymore so I’m ready to give it a new home.
(3) Any mechanical issue(s)? No
(4) How much repair/restoration is needed? None
it’s fully restored all original and I have an album
containing many photos take during the rebuild.
What's the mileage? 42667k
I have had this car for many years and my Dad had
it many years before me. It has been a fantastic car.
Maintained as drivable fully insured and passing
state inspection every year. I have not had any
major mechanical problems since I got it. It’s 51
years old so it does require a little love from the
mechanic occasionally. But mechanics love to work
It’s stored as pictured in garage covered with car
The photos of the VIN plate and pictures of various
codes shows how to interpret the matching numbers
to confirm matching.
I would prefer cash or cashiers check only.
