Car description

This is very nice and special Mustang. It has been a California desert car for its entire life and has all original rust free sheet metal. VERY beautiful newer paint and newer restored interior. The fit, finish and drive-ability of this Mustang are designed to be enjoyed on the road, track and showroom. There was NO shortcuts or penny pinching in restoring and building this Mustang. It is a manual automatic. It’s drives like a stick without a clutch. The shifts are amazingly crisp and is BLAST to drive. (see transmission)


The last owner who did the restoration/build owned it for 35 years and is a Master Mechanic, with knowledge so vast in Ford Mustangs that I would consider him a walking encyclopedia. He was the president of the South Bay/Long Beach chapter of the Mustang Owners Club of California, as well as, a member of the Cobra Owners Club since 1979 and the Shelby American Automobile Club for over 20 years. He has been in the automotive racing business for over 30 years, much of it in NASCAR. He was also the chief mechanic and engine builder for the fastest 1965 GT350R models that raced in vintage races in the west.

From the former owner:
ENGINE:
1968 302 Mexican Block. The Mexican block 302 has the same full width 2 bolt main caps as the Hi-Po 289, though the block is stronger with a higher nodularity content in the block along with extended cylinder skirts. The block is bored .030" over and is fitted with forged pistons and has been fully deburred internally with all of the oil galleys modified for screw in pipe plugs. The actual engine size is 306 cubic inches. The rotating assembly is fully balanced and the engine is blueprinted, a term which refers to ensuring that all clearances are kept extremely uniform and exact. The engine is fitted with ARP main studs, a high-volume Melling oil pump, Moroso windage tray and a Canton 7 quart road racing oil pan. The cylinder heads are 1968 302 four barrel heads that have been fitted with hardened seats, to allow for the use of unleaded fuel, they are fitted with larger intake and exhaust valves, and fully ported and polished by Rick Kemph. The rocker arms are the Comp Cams Magnum Rollers. The compression ratio is 9.5:1, to be street able on pump gas. The cam is an Engle, the brand I have used on all of my small-block Ford racing engines, and it is a mild hydraulic lifter version. The intake manifold is a dual-plane Edelbrock that has been port matched and massaged. The carb is a Holley 600 CFM vacuum secondary type that I have modified. I have removed the choke plate, changed out the standard float bowls for center-pivot, dual feed bowls, and it sits on a 1" four hole spacer to improve velocity. The distributor is a 1975 Ford electronic ignition type that I have completely rebuilt to NASCAR specs and modified to be fully mechanical advance by adjusting the weights and springs and removing and blanking out the vacuum advance module. The ignition is a NASCAR MSD ignition and the spark plug wires are the ones I used for NASCAR as well, Magnecore. The exhaust flows through Hedman Headers to 2.5" pipes through V-Force mufflers to exit at the rear valence.


TRANSMISSION:
The transmission started life as a 1966 C4 three speed automatic. I have completely rebuilt the transmission with high performance clutches, steels and bands. The intermediate servo has been replaced with a high performance larger servo which ensures very positive shifting. The valve body is an Art Carr fully manual, reverse pattern type. This means that the transmission is now a fully manual, three speed transmission without the need for a standard clutch or a vacuum modulator valve.
