Solid axles get a bad rap.
A friend of mine has too many projects and asked that I list this for him, all of the major metal work (rust repair) has been done, highly desirable red car with white interior, 390 and 4 speed. Scott's contact info is at the bottom of the ad that he sent to Bring a Trailer. All numbers matching:
I have a 1968 Mustang GT 390/4 speed that I found in a car port in Cincinnati. I am interested in selling it, but am unsure how to value it, and could the help of your team to move it to the next owner. I took a stab at writing something up, take a look:
Finding an old horse a new home: On a hot afternoon in August of 2006, I was helping a friend work on a rental property in Blue Ash, Ohio and spied a couple of muscle cars sitting under a car port next door. Being unafraid of an irate shotgun blast, we ventured over and discovered a fastback Mustang along with a 70’s era Corvette. I knocked on the door, and met the owner.
I asked him about the Mustang, and it turned out that he bought the car new in 1968 from Rockenfield Ford on Vine street in Cincinnati. The car is an original S-code car, with a 390 big block and 4-spd transmission. He ordered it in Candyapple Red with a Parchment interior, with a white “C” stripe down the side as was customary with that car. It turned out that he no longer thought he would be able to fix it as he’d gotten too old to care, and had moved on to other things.
A deal was struck, and two days later, I pulled it into my shop to take a look. The good news pretty well ended with the serial number and drivetrain. Period correct applies to rust if the car lives in Ohio its whole life, and this car had it. Most of the interior was shot (the seats were from a Mach 1), and almost no panel had survived the tin worm. I set to work disassembling it, bagging and tagging, and throwing out some really nasty stuff along the way. All of the serial numbers matched though, so my hopes were lifted and the project began in earnest.
I farmed all of the rust repair to a quality restorer nearby, and they replaced the panels in need on their frame jig, so now the shell is complete. And that’s where it’s sat for 5 years. Since then, I’ve had two kids and moved on in my career, and unfortunately, I don’t have the time in my life for such an undertaking. I’m offering it up for sale for $16k in the hopes that it finds a Mustang restorer to finish the job, who has their own vision of what this car could be. I’ve never re-titled it, so you’d technically be the second owner!
