VCD Vintage Car Day

Recommended Posts

I've finally got my '68 Mustang back in California after having a lot of work done on it in Idaho.

While it isn't perfect, no you can see I have to replace the Mustang badges on it and do a couple of other minor repairs, it is drivable and a lot of fun to drive.

It has an original 289 engine.  It's been rebuilt and bored .40 over, but it's been completely rebuilt.  New front end. New gas tank. Air conditioning blows cold and the AM radio works loud and clear.

Drive 'em if you got 'em.

Those high winding 289s were cool.  Is yours an automatic or 3/4 speed?  A buddy of mine in high school, his mom had a white hardtop with the 289 and 3 speed, how we were not killed in that thing still amazes me.  Yours looks nice and straight - not my favorite color, but still really cool.  Enjoy and be safe.

Had a 65 mustang traded it for a one ton dually truck. Mustangs are cool. Yours is very nice.

My first car was a 67 289 automatic.

That's the only car I owned that I miss, that thing could REALLY do burnouts!  It was a lot of fun.
