    I am looking at a 1968 Mustang coup that needs some brake work and has rust damage throughout. It has a rebuilt 302 and a new C4 transmission put in. The speedometer, fuel gauge, etc. are all broken and the tires show signs of rot. It runs great and the steering (if a little loose) is...

    Hi everybody! I'm new to this forum and forums in general. As well as fairly new to the world of classic cars. I bought a 200 straight six, 1968 mustang coupe last year with hope of restoring it. Aesthetically its in good condition, performance wise, not so much. Needless to say I've learned A...

    Hello, I have a 1968 mustang coupe 302 with manual steering. I have a new power steering pump on the motor. I know I need a new steering box. My question is what do I need to do with the linkage? Do I need the hydraulic ram with the valve on it like the ones that came stock or does the new...

    I have a 1968 mustang that I restored once when I was younger and in high school but then I parked it for 13 years and I am currently working on restoring it again. I am interested in knowing what parts are interchangable from other vehicles. Any information will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    Bought a 68 Coupe a few months back. My decision at the time was to buy the Mustang with the least amount of work involved. However I now realize that I will never be satisfied with the power of a I6. My dilemma...sell or do a V8 swap. I know changing it to a 289/302 or bigger will involve a...

    Hello. Late bloomer when it comes to fixing up classics so tons of questions but one at a time I guess. Got a 1968 Mustang straight 6. Wheels are 4 bolt. There doesnt seem to be many 4 bolt types of mags out there. Am I limited to era type mag wheels? If not, will any era 4 bolt wheel fit? Thanx

    I recently purchased a 1968 Mustang Coupe with a 289 4 speed Manual transmission. When I bought it it would start up fine and ran great until I let it run out of oil. This being my first classic car I did not watch the oil levels close enough until I happened to blow my oil pump. Luckily I...

    I just purchased a 1968 mustang 289 coupe project. as to be expected it had rust in some of the usual places including a rust hole on the front bottom corner of the the passenger door skin. I'm not experienced in welding, and don't want to risk a patch where the result is highly visible. so i...

    Hi Everyone, I have a 1968 coupe, and my power steering pressure hose keeps breaking on the metal part, at least twice a year. I have lifetime waranty on the part, but it takes a couple hours to fix every time it breaks, plus the oil gets everywhere. Does anyone knows if there is a replacement...

    I'm working on my '68 coupe that has been garaged for 15 years. When I first started messing around with the car one of the front brakes (drums) was frozen, and the master cylinder was empty. I assume the brake fluid must have evaporated, as there was no stain on the garage floor from leaking...
