Default Rules on Stock vs. Modified

Hi,
I am looking forward to next years car show and show and shine season. Can someone help me uderstand when a "stock" car becomes classified as "modified". My car is fairly stock but have made a couple of changes like color is still a 68 color but not the original, exhaust system is different, added PS and PB, carb is not stock but evything else I would consider as original - would this be stock or modified? Is there a website that spells this all out, is each event different as far as class rules go? Thanks for your help!

Sounds like you're pretty well still stock, as long as it was an option they won't know if it came on your car at first glance (PS, PB, etc.) same as the factory avail. color you chose. The modified usually refers to different rims that weren't offered then or on that model, custom paint, different seats, different motor, etc. Most shows consider 2-5 major changes like this push you into mod class.
You might check Mustang Club of America for some rules, each show uses there own set of rules usually, most flyers have a number you can call and ask.
Just noticed you're in Canada, rules are probably similar you just have to convert them into metric

Hello. Your car would be placed in the concours/driven class, and you would get dinged for the carb and exhaust. The other stuff you could work around. If the power steering and power brakes are the same components that Ford would have used, you're ok there. The wrong color isn't a problem either if you get a door tag from Kevin marti that has the color code for what your car is now on it. They look at the door tag, not go get a Marti report.

In the modified class, you're judged on the quality and workmanship of the modifications, and I'm guessing that your car would not score very well sitting beside another car that someone had dumped hundreds and hundreds of hours and god knows how much money into getting it all tricked out.

Hi! Yes, it sounds like your stang would best fit into the stock group. At local "show n shine" car shows, there really is no defined rule. I look at it this way for a local show: if someone who is not a Mustang "expert" would think your car is "stock", it probably belongs in stock class. Once you start adding lots of chrome, remove trim, put on big wheels, flames, etc, then you have entered the realm of the modifieds. You get the picture.

Since Kevin Marti has all the data on '67- '73's, I can't imagine he would make a Data Tag for a '68, with any codes other than what it originally came with. Maybe other venders would do this.

1968GTCONV, I'd say for most show's, your car would be in the stock class. MCA sanctioned shows are more particular.

Is your car now "Pull Me Over" Red or Presidential Blue?
