(Feeler) '68 Coupe 5.0L EFI T5 drivetrain and suspension

This is a feeler to see if anyone is interested...

My '68 coupe has been in this configuration since I put it on the road about 7 years ago. Since on the road, at most I have put ~2,000 miles on the drivetrain, and have never had a failure of any sort.

I'm looking into going with a full chassis under my car, and will entertain selling off basically everything that bolts to the unibody...unbolt the front suspension from the shock towers, the lower a-arm mounts, take the motor mount bolts out, trans crossmember bolts, leaf spring bolts...you get the idea.

The car is running/driving perfectly, performs well and is always reliable.

Engine:
Block - Late model 5.0L, bored .010" over
Crank - Stock crank,
Connecting Rods - Summit stage 2 rods
Pistons - Keith black hypereutectic pistons, approximately 9.3:1
Heads - Edelbrock Performer RPM with 2.02" intake valves (190cc), Model #60255
Head bolts - ARP
Rocker arms - Crane needle rollers, 1.6 ratio
Valve covers - Trick Flow tall aluminum
Intake Manifold - Explorer GT40, ported, polished and gasket matched
Throttle body - 65mm
Mass Air Sensor - C&L 75mm
Injectors - Cobra 24 lb/hr
Distributor - Stock Ford TFI
Coil - MSD TFI Blaster
Computer - X3Z Cobra computer with 4position SCT flip chip, tuned by Bob Kurgan

Clutch/Transmission:
Ford Racing King Cobra Clutch, pressure plate
Mustang Steve Cable Clutch Conversion
Fox Mustang Bell housing
Tremec T-5Z freshly rebuilt
SVO Hurst shift tower

Front Suspension:
Fatman Fabrications Strut & Rack and Pinion conversion
Fox body Mach1 struts
Rack & pinion steering conversion
Ford Tempo power steering rack
Front sway bar
New radius arms with polyurethane bushings

Rear Suspension:
Mustangs Plus mid-eye lowering springs
Gabriel shocks

Rearend:
9" Ford housing from a Lincoln Versailles
28-spline axles
9" housing
Detroit Tru-trac differential
3.50:1 motive gear set setup by Drive Train Specialists in Detroit, MI
Custom steel driveshaft from Shaftmasters, Inc. in Detroit, MI

Front & Rear Brakes:
2004 Mustang GT spindles
2004 Mustang GT calipers
2004 Mustang GT rotors
Braided stainless steel brake lines
Stainless brake lines from master cylinder
Lincoln Versailles calipers
vented rotors
Stainless brake lines from master cylinder

This could be your turn-key solution. Anyone who is serious and has the cash is welcome to come out for a drive. PM me if interested.

Thanks,
Patrick
