Re: Possible trade for my 68 jcode 4 speed

Keeping it stock and original is a great option too. Or you can get a 347 stroker and install it using the original air cleaner, valve covers, pulleys etc. It would look stock but be more fun.

Re: Found R-Code 1968 Cougar Today

It's my understanding that selecting either the GT package or the 428 CJ engine option triggered automatic installation of power steering and power disc brakes. However, a customer could elect for drum brakes at no extra cost, and power steering delete if so desired. The question would be for Kevin ...

Re: Found R-Code 1968 Cougar Today

I just compared your Marti Report to the one on my 68 R code. Mine calls out power disc brakes. Yours does not. Hmmmmmm. Maybe your car did have drums originally? That would be very unusual in a good way. Worth a question to Marti.

Re: Staggered Shocks on a 1968

There were accidental installations on at least one 428CJ automatic car too. Like Chris says, the only cars that were supposed to get them were 428 / 4 speed cars like yours.

Re: Found R-Code 1968 Cougar Today

FYI, the car originally came with front disc power brakes standard as part of the 428CJ package. It was not uncommon for drag racers to swap to front manual drums to save weight and rolling resistance. If there had been a special order brake swap it would be on the Marti Report I believe.

Re: VIN Number on Engine

Re: Found R-Code 1968 Cougar Today

Beats me. It includes all. You have a very rare car. Welcome to the club! Perhaps that does not include the R-code GTE's or GT's. I don't know. I'm happy with a one of 64 or a one of 48! Royce, If the numbers in CBTN book are correct do you know where Jim Pinkerton came up with a higher total number...
