1968 Mustang Trans Am Race Car
BEING OFFERED AT NO RESERVE!!!
transmission features a new diaphramed pressure plate and new clutch. The
transmission work totaled to over $1800 and is ready to be run. The transmission is difficult to get into
reverse which is the product of the last owner making the modification in order
to assure that a driver does not put the Hurst shifter into reverse when
attempting to shift into 1st on the track. The next owner may choose to rebuild the
linkage to make reverse easier to find but also might see value in how
difficult it is to engage reverse.
suspension features front brakes which are vintage Trans Am specification. The front brakes are cooled at each caliper by ducts which were purchased from
Cobra Automotive and the brake rotors are hardened and were also purchased from
rear end is a 4.11 ratio in a Lincoln Versailles/Ford Granada differential
which features rear disc brakes. The car is also running Koni shocks at all 4
corners, override traction bars in the back, axle limiting cables, racing
springs, and a driveshaft safety loop. Observers will note that the car had
subframe connectors welded in but they were cut off when the lap times went up
due to the modification!
car is running a 3 inch straight exhaust all the way back and the collectors
have been cut off the headers to allow for better road clearance. The car has a fuel cell installed, dual
master cylinder, and torque thrust wheels at a custom offset (the last owner
believes 7.5 in back and 6 in the front). Those wheels also feature titanium
lugnuts. Further, the car has a master kill switch installed on the passenger
side along with a transponder already installed as well.
the car is built very close to the specs of a 67/68 Shelby Trans Am “Terlingua”
Mustang even down to the vented axle to keep axle grease from concentrating on
one side of the axle during hard cornering.
car has been raced by its last owner since 1999, running at such tracks as
Hallet Raceway in Oklahoma, Willow Springs, the Virginia City Hillclimb,
Heartland Park in Topeka, Infineon Raceway, Sears Point, and others. The car comes with a log book as well as a number of pictures of the car running at various venues.
note that this car is built as a race car and is ready to run. The car is built
to CVAR regulations but could surely be modified slightly to run under a number
of sanctioning bodies. The last owner
states that the seat belts could likely use an update and surely the next owner
will want to go through the car before running it at speed on the track, if
only for his peace of mind. The car could continue to participate in road
racing under the next owner or could be a great autocross car. Truth be told,
the car has working taillights and headlights and, in result, the car could be
converted to street use as a mean looking Terlingua tribute car without much
effort. Simple detune the drivetrain, add mufflers, and add bumpers.
the car is very nice…for a race car. The car is a very straight Mustang Coupe
but should not be judged as a concours restoration. The fenders do not align
perfectly and the paint has no shortage of chips and scuffs (although the car
is very presentable for a race car). The
car has a great look to it and the cosmetics of the car are certainly better
than most of what you see running around on race tracks most of the time.
in all, this 68 Mustang race car presents an interesting opportunity for anyone
who would like to go racing or is looking for a Trans Am tribute car. For the
price of entry, you certainly could not build this car for anywhere near the
car’s reserve even if you managed to find a 67/68 Mustang coupe with paint nice
enough to simply allow for modification to race specifications. In today’s
market, clean Mustang coupes such as this range from $15k-$22K conservatively...before any race prep or modification comes into play!
specialize in the sale of original Shelby Mustangs, Cobras, and performance
Fords in general. I generally find myself dealing in street specification cars
and I certainly am not a scholar of the 67-68 Shelby Trans Am cars. Because of
that, I have done my best to provide a number of glamour shots but I do feel
that the more important pictures are the almost 100 pictures I have taken with
my phone of most every square inch of the car- top, bottom, interior, and
trunk. These photographs should give serious inquirers a pretty good idea of
the specifications to which this car is built and also the standard of quality
to which the car is built. I have also made a video so that interested parties can hear what this beast sounds like!
