1968 Convertible – Forest Find!

1968 Mustang rusting in the woods

Classic Mustangs are a great investment. And convertibles will fetch top dollar for the drop top fun they offer. But convertibles don't do well being left out in the forest. Check out this example of what not to do with a valuable 60's muscle car!  (more…)

1967 Mustang Fastback 390

Factory S Code Big Block

Not quite a barn find. Maybe more like a "carport find". This '67 Mustang fastback has been sitting for a long time in a state of dis-assembly. It's one of those attempted restorations that never picked up steam. The previous owner even went as far as rebuilding the original 390-GT engine, but never got it to the point of starting. (more…)

1967 Fastback – Serious rust!

'67 Mustang Fastback - Swiss Cheese!

This one might be beyond saving. I hate to say it of a 1967 Fastback like this, but rust has taken it beyond saving. It's not a big block car, nor a highly optioned Mustang. It's missing the factory original 289 C-code motor and C4 automatic transmission. The interior, front clip, all glass and all trim have long ago been stripped and sold off or used on other Mustang projects(more…)

1967 Mustang Coupe 6 cyl

Mustang used as storage shed!

It's bad enough to let a classic Mustang sit out in the weather and rust away, but this one has been relegated to storing junk too! But maybe that's because there's not much desire for this 6 cylinder, no option coupe. If it was a fastback or convertible it would have been restored years ago. Even a couple with some nice options or a V8 engine would be worth a look. (more…)

1966 Shelby Clone

Replica Shelby GT-350H

Yes, this is a clone, but not your standard fake. This one was done back in the 70's and the parts actually came from a real Shelby that was totaled. And this wasn't just a plane Jane 66 that someone wanted to spruce up. It's a factory GT car with 289-4V and 4 speed transmission. Original color was Raven Black with black Pony interior. Not too shabby on it's own. (more…)

1967 Mustang Coupe

Plane Jane Straight Six Sixty Seven

This 1967 Mustang has been sitting in this guys backyard for almost two decades and will likely sit there for another two. There's just not enough value in this car to bother restoring it. (more…)

1968 Convertible – Disaster Car!

Yeah it's a Convertible, but is it restorable?

This 1968 Mustang is just a disaster. The fact that it's a convertible may be it's only silver lining. It came with the lowest base motor; a 200 cid 6 cylinder. A nice reliable engine, but hardly a tire smoker. (more…)

1969 Mustang 428 CJ

Factory 428 Cobra Jet Mach 1

Even as a shell with no engine this R code 1969 Mach 1 recently brought in $18,500 on eBay! The combination of the popular Sportsroof styling and the potent 428 Cobra Jet big block make for a seriously desireable Mustang.

1968 Big Block Coupe

390-4V S-code GT coupe

All that's left is a shell, but it's a nicely optioned big block that would make a great restoration project. This 1968 Mustang is a factory GT with a 390-4bbl big block mated to a C6 automatic. Original options include power disc brakes, power steering and air conditioning! These performance options were usually reserved for the fastback or convertible body styles, making this a pretty rare combo. (more…)

1968 Coupe – Not worth restoring

Some Mustangs are just too far gone

I don't see this car ever coming back to life. It's a 1968 Mustang for sale on eBay recently, but it can't be worth much more than parts. I love Mustangs, and  the 68's especially, but sometimes you just have to throw in the towel. (more…)
