1968 Mustang Fastback

What 45 years of Florida salt air can do

You can tell this recent 1968 Mustang for sale on eBay has lived it's whole life in the Rust Belt; specially Florida, where the sea air took a major beating to this car. It sold for $3,300 on a NO RESERVE auction. The seller was straight forward in his ad saying, "the pictures speak the truth. She needs it all." He goes on by saying, "anticipate replacing all metal.  The doors shut like you would think, crappy.  Jams are rotted pretty badly.

It is a factory air conditioned car, which is a plus. It also has power steering and a 289 cid C-code engine. The drive train is still original and turns over by hand, but not running under it's own power. Aside from the very serious rust issue the car is pretty much all there. The question is whether the cost of total sheet metal replacement is worth it. Hopefully the new owner still thinks so in a few years.
