1968 Standard J-Code 4 Speed

Post by Socalef9 » 13 Oct 2018, 16:42

Ive decided to let my cat go. My original plan was to go restomod, but after buying the car and learning how rare of a color combo and drivetrain combo i had, i decided to keep her as close to original looking as possible. SOoo now my car is up for trade, or for sale if the right price comes along.

Original 4 speed Ford Toploader manual transmission
(1 of 536 Cougars with 302-4V and 4 speed) See Marti Report

Numbers matching drive train

Original Smog Thermactor and Smog Equipment

Original Exhaust

Original AC system filled with R12, blows between 36 and 45 degrees.

4 row brass radiator. Kept the original. Car drives all day in 95 degree weather with Ac blasting. Temp does not rise above 3/8ths.
New water pump, timing chain, rebuilt starter

Pertronix ignition

Heavy duty export brace

Holley Street Avenger 570, Weiand Manifold, HiPo Air cleaner
(All original parts in boxes)

Power steering/Power front disk brakes, New rotors and drums, rebuilt master cylinder and Midland brake booster, SS hoses in front.

Complete front and rear suspension rebuild with new springs, shocks, control arms, bushings, 1 1/8” swaybar

New Carpet, floor mats, seats, foam sound and heat insulation on floor, steel trunk divider. (Torn headliner, new one in box)

Numbers matching glass. Gaskets need to be replaced. I have both front and rear in boxes.

4 speaker bluetooth stereo mounted in glove box. 12” kicker sub in trunk

Solid state sequential tail lights with LED plasma bulbs

Rare Dealer Option luggage rack.

Too much to list. More parts (Original and repro) in boxes

Bubbles of rust developing on the quarters in front of tires, and on the normal bottom corner of the doors. Paint needs to be freshened up. A blend on the sail panel was done poorly, and there are several dings and chips throughout. The previous owner installed horrid mirrors and drilled holes on the doors. Holes now plugged with interior panel plugs.

Floors and torque boxes are solid. No leaks from cowl.

I'm really looking to trade for a first gen Camaro, or a 66-67 Chevelle, as my father had one and i would like to build one with him before he passes.
If i cant trade, i'd like to get about 15k.

Located in socal. Email me for more pictures of the imperfections, undercarriage, etc. b16ajdm@gmail.com
