Documented 1968 GT fastback. It is a very nice example with all the fundamentals being good to excellent. HOWEVER, we will make EVEN NICER with select “enhancements” – see list below. The enhancement process has “already begun”.
The car is very original. It has a very high integrity body with NO metal replacement that I can see (freakishly RARE for a 50 year old Mustang).
“NOTE” concerning $$ PRICE range:
The final price has yet to be set. The base price is $42,500 and is projected to be $52,500 once all enhancements are complete. If you are interested in buying this car, that can be done ANYTIME during our enhancement process.
The price will move upward as we invest both time and money in the planned enhancements. If the enhancement listed below is in RED text, that means that step has already taken place. Most of the new parts have already been purchased for all the steps listed. However, as long as the labor of completing the step has not taken place, that enhancement and the associated cost can be eliminated if desired.
The earlier you are involved the more say you can have in the process. There are ALTERNATIVE choices on various items below as well as the option to “delete” some enhancements and discuss the posdsibility of adding some not currently listed.
While none of the enhancements below are necessarily needed, this is typical of the PROCESS my Son and I go though on our cars. We take a car that is already very nice and enhance it to an even higher level. Our goal is NOT concours perfect, rather our goal is to rationalize the car as needed to get it to the best operation and best presentation possible without “breaking the bank”.
