1968 Ford Mustang

The vendor has supplied the following information.

Registration: FDS 314C NB: For reasons best known to the DVLA this car was issued with a 1965 registration but was built in California in 1968

Imported from Kansas USA 2014 and registered in UK in 2014

In Imperial Maroon, mileage 56,800 (Not warranted). Speedometer changed but old unit available. Left Hand Drive

This power steering and power braked vehicle was originally built in California with a 296 cubic inch engine (4.7 Litre) with a four barrel carburettor and now has a 302 (5.03 Litre) cubic inch engine with a new four barrel Edelbrock carburettor, large air cleaner, performance exhaust manifold, straight through large bore exhaust pipes, electronic ignition, front disc brakes and a rebuilt three speed automatic transmission with a Hurst shifter. It is a rust free example which I imported directly from the USA myself and is in good usable/driveable condition. The car has been subject to extensive mechanical repairs over the last six years the details of which are listed below.

The car would benefit from an external full or partial repaint but most of the paint is serviceable. The present paint has slight inclusions in it in places.

The interior is in good undamaged condition. Bodywork in generally good condition.

I have a copy of the American title of the previous owner and some new unfitted external trim parts and some used spares. The vehicles last MOT expired in September 2018.

The mileage was showing at 56000 approximately but the instrument failed and has been replaced with a used one that shows 72560.
