Built on 31st of August 1968 at the San Jose plant in California this superb Mustang is a 289-2V V8 C code example fitted with a C4 automatic transmission and 2.79:1 rear axle. Optioned with factory correct Tahoe Turquoise Paint over a matching light and dark Aqua interior the Mustang was delivered to its first owner in California and is offered in excellent condition, the paintwork, interior, seats, carpets, and headlining are all in fantastic condition. Having lived the majority of its life in a warm climate the underside is very clean, the original spot welds to the sills are clear to see and there are no untoward blemishes or repairs to the body or chassis. The cowl is also in perfect condition with no rust to show. In recent times the Mustang has been treated to various upgrades including Wilwood disc front brakes, a completely new power steering system, new rear brakes, shock absorbers, rear springs, bushes, and new fuel and brake lines, (steel braided hoses). Other notable maintenance work includes a rebuilt differential with new pinion and side bearings. A new carburettor has been fitted with ancillaries, the air-conditioning has been serviced with new condenser and a conversion from R22 to R134A refrigerant gas. The rear lights have had a three bulb conversion with LED bulbs, which are much more effective. The car has new American racing Torque Thrust 17 inch staggered wheels with Toyo Proxes tyres and the original style pressed steel wheels which are in as good as new condition and are offered with the car, so is the original steering wheel with various other spare parts included.
Offered with an MoT test certificate with no advisories, various sundry invoices and its UK V5C registration document, this exceptional example even comes with its previous Californian ‘black plates’ and is ready to be used immediately.
