My first Mustang was a 68 FB 390 / 4-speed non-GT. It had a 8K tach. My current 67 "S" code / 4-speed FB non-GT came with a 6K tach.

Did you buy it to flip or were you thinking of restoring it and have since changed your mind? Seems like a really neat car that would be fairly easy to redo-all things considered! I would be very tempted to put all things back together, fix what was needed, and drive the heck out of it for a while before selling or doing the complete body and paint work. No, I'm not bidding on it, I have enough projects............

I wouldn't say I bought it to flip it, I prefer to say I bought it to save it. Whether it is me restoring it or someone else. I bought it knowing one of my cars would have to go, it just turns out it is this one. I would prefer to sell my wifes '67 fastback (she never drives it), but she says no way. No biggie to me if it doesn't sell, at least I can say I tried, lol!

Wish I didn't have too many projects already! Good luck with the sale.

Ford made a habit of going way over with tachs. 6 cylinder cars had 6000 tachs, and of course no chance of getting to that redline.

Amateur restorer. Well, sometimes I have been paid for it. But not right now.

Well, you guys did a pretty good job on guessing the value. It sold for 15.2k. I really didn't expect it to go that high and set my reserve just under that. Wasn't too worried about it if it didn't sell, I would have just kept it, only had about 1/3 of that in it. It seems to be in good hands, guy from Alabama bought it and is known for his FE engine builds.

Thanks for update. My last guess I stated "mid teens".

I'm sure in good hands.

If you borrow a tool more than twice, you need to own it You get what you pay for!
