1968 Ford Mustang GT clone overview
This is a very nice driver condition ready to drive across town or across the country. I'll pick you up at the airport if you choose to drive it home. :-) The car accelerates quickly, ith SVO aluminum heads and an est. 320+ HP it pulls hard and will chirp the tires if you're not careful yet it can cruise all dayat 75 MPH with the 5 speed trans. The Wilwood discs in the front bring the speed quickly under control. The fastback is ready for your garage with the mostof the expensive bits being nearly new which should deliver years of worry free motoring. Solid platform to take to the next level: Shelby, leanor GT500E, T500 clones or ???

06-30-15I drove the car to the office today (40 mile round trip) and noticed the engine is running a little rough. It idles and still has power thru all 5 speeds so I believe it's just a minor vacuum leak (can hear a whistlesound). I will get it to the shop and have it looked at. I will adjust the reserveuntil the problem is corrected.The current high bid of just over $17K will not meet the revised reserve but let me know if you would like me to cancel your bid and I will do so.
I do not have the car listed locally andwill not cancel the auction. High bidder wins.
Fog lights are now working, he problem was a bad ground as expected.
No progress has been made regardingmy 06-30-15 enginecomments. I will post an updateas soon as I know more.
