This is a Jersey car that was built, sold and still lives. The car was ordered lime gold with the GT package, S code engine and 4 speed with 3.25 gears in the rear as seen in the attached Marti Report. With ordering the 390 engine it came with manditory optional power disc brakes and power steering. I also have the original buck and axle tag and the dash VIN tag is still in place. The door tag is missing cause at some point the door was swapped out. I've owned this car since 1987 when it was restored to be a driver until the early 90s. Front floor sections were patched as well as the lower 1/4s. The radiator support, both front aprons and the taillight panel was replaced (and cross member below it). The engine is a 390 GT out of a 69 Cougar and this was rebuilt. I have a ton (200+) of photos of the car from back then, now and of the parts that are included so you need to contact me and I can provide you a Photobucket link. I also recommend that you have someone inspect the car so you definitely know what you are getting. I'll make every effort to accommodate anyone that wants to look at the car before bidding but remember I work full time and can't take time off for this.
The engine has 22,721 mile on it now since it was rebuilt and runs nice. It has TRW forged 30 over pistons (stock 10.5 to 1 compression), Edelbrock Performer intake, Crane Cam (343801 see photobucket for cam card) with matching springs and lifters, Holley 600cfm Carb., Ford Motorsport windage tray, high volume oil pump with a Motorsport HD pump drive shaft, Ford rocker, Ford rocker shafts, Teflon valve stem seals were also installed at this time. I just installed a new water pump, fuel pump and upper & lower radiator hoses as well as the rear seal, intake, pan, valve cover gaskets.
Installed is a C6 automatic with damage to the bell housing bottom from the previous owner dropping it (see in photo link). I have the pieces for that came off the bellhousing if you want to try and fix it. It will be fine like this and will cause no problems. All parts are include to install a 4 speed top loader (included) except for a manual transmission flywheel, clutch, pressure plate, throw out bearing, manual length driveshaft and speedometer cable. Transmission is a 1966 wide ratio toploader for a SB Mustang but the pilot can be easily trimmed down to be the length needed for a 390. Pilot on input shaft would need to be shortened by 0.30" or so.
The rear axle is the original 9" rear with conventional 3.25 gears in it.
The brake booster and master cylinder probably need to be rebuilt. Get the booster rebuilt cause it will be the correct one and it will last longer than the replacements. I have pre-bent steel lines from FineLines for the front end but the are not installed. The disc brake calipers are new but the rotors probably need to be replaced. The power disc brake distribution block and proportioning valve have had their springs, O-rings replaced. The clutch for the clutch fan should be rebuilt cause it is a little loose and the replacements are not the correct length. I have a flex fan from a Granada on there right now and it fits nice.
The Body will need little work depending on what your ultimate plans are for this car. There is a small area where the floor under the rear seat meets the panel that goes over the axle. The panel that goes over the axle has an area that needs to be patched. The front frame rails just had short patches welded over the existing where the front bumper arms bolt on. Welded in nuts pulled out when trying to get the bumper arm bolts off (patch panels are included for the repair). Doors are solid with the passenger door having a little surface rust where paint was removed and the drivers door had the front lower corner patched back in 1987. Both are original Ford doors. In the late 90s my father decided to install some 1/4s from a wrecked 67 FB. The 68 style depressions were grafted onto the 67 panels. This work was never completed so you would have to complete it or start over if you don't like the work. This also goes the same for the work that was done in the 80s but that work is sound and there are no issues. Headliner is nice and was installed in the late 90s also. There is a carpet and sound deadener that I removed for the photos and will be putting this back in for shipping. Seats are recovered but the back seat has a burn in it (new cover included). I currently can't located the rear seat back but will include it if I can find it.
Included is a bunch of parts that I hope fit in the car for shipping. Some things that are included are fender, headlight buckets, most of the interior, molding trim GT grill, Tach instrument cluster, Tach main dash harness,GT wheels, tail lights, weather stripping, wheels, etc (I have a parts list and pictures link). There was a dealer installed vinyl top installed on the car (see photos) and I reinstalled one but it is pulled off now. The moldings will come with the car. You will need the AMK master kits for the correct bolts and screws to attach these parts. Over the years these have gotten lost or they didn't come with the parts I acquired. The battery pictured does not go with the car as it's for my electric trolling motor. The under hood harness is for a non-Tach car and you will need a tachometer one if you want to run the car with the factory Tach. The main dash harness that installed is not the Tach one (included is anice restored original main under dash Tach harness) and I left it in there so the car would run. There are a lot of parts that will be going with this car. At the page in the photobucket link there are 3 sub-folders and one of these folders has the parts pictures.
If you want to look at the car or arrange for someone to inspect it for you then send me a message. The car runs and would drive but the brakes are not functioning so it will have to be winched onto a trailer.
The car is solid and the title is clear in my name. Cars interior is set up to be black now (originally was green). The front and rear springs were replaced with springs from a spring shop, KYB shocks are on there, upper control arm shafts were replaced with Ford parts and the lower control arms are aftermarket units. It was a nice driver that I used every day for 4 years before I took it off the road and went to school. Car is partially disassemble because I was going to repaint the car but life gets in the way sometimes. It is still like this so the potential buyer can better inspect the car and not to cover anything up.
Thank you for your time!
