Rockbridge Baths, Virginia, United States
Beautiful 1968 FORD MUSTANG FASTBACK.
This is a “Turn Key” car that has been completely restored from top to bottom.
This is a Great car that can be driven to car shows and cruise-in's and really be enjoyed.
This car needs nothing but a New Owner and Driver!
Here are the details of the car:
1968 Fastback Mustang with Marti Report, Buck tag, and Door tag.
Body: Car was completely taken apart in 2011.
It was disassembled to a shell and all New Ford sheet metal was used. This includes, New Front Fenders, Inner
Fenders, Battery Box, Radiator Support, Rear Quarters, Front and Rear Valance Panels, New Hood, Headlight Door
Assembly, and Trim, Tail light Chrome, New Bumpers, Hood Hinges.
The old paint on the car was taken off using the razor blade technique to protect the metal instead of using a DA
to remove the paint so that it kept the body lines straight and did not give it the wave down the sides look you
sometimes get from a DA sander. The body prep and paint was done by a Professional Paint Shop and was done right.
The paint is Beautiful Bright Red Base/Clear that was color sanded and buffed to make it very slick with a great
shine. The White C Stripe really gives the car Great Eye Appeal and matches the beautiful Parchment interior.
It has all New Rubber Seals at the Doors, Windows and Trunk area.
Interior: The interior was completely done in 2011 with New Underlayment, Seat Covers, Carpet, Door Panels,
Handles and Knobs, Sill Plates, Floor Mats and New CD player. Also a BM Shifter and Autometer Gauges were added.

Roller Camshaft, Aluminum Intake, Holley Carb, Coated Headers, MSD Ignition, Optima Battery, and Polished Aluminum
Ford Racing Valve Covers. Engine puts out close to 400HP! It is a pump gas engine. The engine has a lopy Idle and
sounds right, it's very responsive and pulls strong! It's a Great Street Engine.

A potential issue with the speed control cable collar has got the 2003-20003 Ford Taurus and Mercury Sable under the spotlight of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. If the collar breaks it can cause the throttle to be stuck open.
The issue is limited to vehicles with the 3.0-liter V6 Duratec. There are just 50 complaints so far out of 310,000 cars, but the NHTSA has begun an investigation into whether a recall should be issued.
We've already seen plenty of what the Geneva Motor Show will have in store for us in less than two weeks, but most of the confirmed debuts that were announced so far have generally been luxury or performance cars. Ford, on the other hand, will be showing off a couple of its new family-friendly models for European buyers to enjoy.
On the larger side of things, the full range of Tourneo vans (shown above) will be on display, including the introduction of the new Tourneo Courier model, but Ford will also be showing off the all-new EcoSport crossover, which is based on the automaker's Global B platform and will be positioned beneath the Kuga, better known here as the Escape. The subcompact EcoSport was originally unveiled at the Beijing Motor Show last April.
Autocar has some sour news for fans of go-fast Ford products. According to Roelant de Waard, Ford's president of marketing in Europe, the automaker will probably never offer more than one RS performance model for sale at the same time. That statement runs contrary earlier rumblings that suggested Ford would launch its next-generation Focus RS in 2015 and follow the hatch with a spate of other vehicles with an RS badge. But de Waard has made it clear that Ford of Europe is now focused on squarely on the next Mustang, even though there may be more RS models on the way eventually.
"What is clear is that the RS shouldn't be a series, or a car badge that we have in our portfolio all the time. It is an extreme car - something more than ST," he said.
That philosophy makes plenty of sense. We loved the old Focus RS - shown above in RS500 trim - because it was generally bonkers and plenty exclusive. Diluting either aspect is sure to end in disappointment for everyone involved.
