    Is that lift in your home garage? That's gotta be completely worth the investment.

    Interesting. So 17x9.5 with 6.0 would be fine without problems? I have the stock 9" no mods. Was your wheels from Vintage wheel works?

    If you decide to sell your fastback next year I'd be interested on how much you'll sell it for. I probably won't be able to afford it but it wouldn't hurt to know. Thank you sir.

    I have not rolled my fenders, replaced my 8 inch rear with a 9 inch from Currie so at that time I had the option to get a 66 mustang sized rear rather than a 68 as they are different in width by 1 inch on each side. There is no reason for this other than it allows a deeper dish rim which looks better. Alot of people use 5.75 BS, I errored on to much knowing if I really wanted to move it out a quarter inch I could use spacers. Plus quarter inch back spacing is usually an extra charge. I used a tool called Percy Wheelrite to confirm my measurements. I bought it used and sold it for about what I paid for it. I cannot remember what tires I have without looking at the car, I am at work now. I will probably sell the car in the upcoming year, I have lost interest in the car and in general want to downsize my life with less stuff. Suspension is stock.

    Hello sir. I can't help but appreciate the way your 68 looks. Very nice car. I am new to this restoring muscle cars so I'm on a process of researching (before I waste money on the parts I don't need). The questions points to your tire set up. I understand you've already written down your tire and wheel specifications. But, did you have to roll any fenders (front or back), was it a matter of preference that you cut the rear end 1" on each sides (VWW sells a 17x9.5 with 6bs), what brands are those tires, and is your suspension stock set-up (lowered front or back)?

    I have a 68 fastback (fixer upper) that I'm trying to build. My questions were extensive for which i apologize. I am desperate for pertinent informations and trying to gather as much information as I can from owners that "has been there and done that." Thank you very much.
