1968 Mustang 289 Almost done

I have a 289 mustang coupe that I got when I was 13 and Im 17 now and I have seriously loss intrest in it. I never cut any corners when building it my dad helped me out a lot we had the motor rubuilt by a local engine builder. Brand new transmission and converter. The motor is a 289 that has been bored .030 over and has all new internals and a mild cam. The car Id say is about 85%done all it needs is to be painted an all stuff hooked up IE some wiring carb onto intake windshields and interior. I am writing up a list of everything that is on or I am selling with the car. Zero rust new floor pans and every weld was done by my dad a professional welder for 18 years so its strong and nice


I try to race only at the track, but around here the only tracks are divided by stop lights.
