This mustang has been passed down threw my family for the last 28 years. It started off Grey with my uncle and originally had a 289 but it started having problems so he put a 302 in it..after so many years he wanted to sell it and my father said "I'm buying it right now"..we took the motor out and gutted most of the car and started putting everything new that we could into it..all of the interior was redone back to stock but nice new looking chrome and fresh gloss black paint. Then we installed a roller 302 with a 542 cam and some 202 holley heads with a 650 carb.. We dressed up the engine bay and put a beautiful shaker scoop. After we did all of the fabricating to the exterior as far as molding in the Shelby scoops to cutting the hood to fit the shaker..my father had kept the car for 6 months then he decided to one day call me over for dinner and while we were eating he said son I have something for you.. What's that pops? I'm giving you the 68 take it home... So now I have had it for the last 3 years.. I take it nice and easy and try not to race it..lol pops will get pissed..Haha...thanks for reading my story
