This car has taken us over five years of very gentle persuasion before the last owner would finally sell it to us. We met Ron at a performance speed shop nearly five years ago after he was spotted reading our business card that had been left under his wiper blades enquiring if the 390 GT was for sale.
Back then Ron politely declined our interest, but we exchanged numbers and his car was placed on our records. Then a couple of years went by and Ron called our AZ office saying he was considering selling the Mustang, we met again at his house in San Diego but we just couldn’t persuade him to let it go.
Eventually, after another couple of years, with all his focus on a newly acquired project Ron was finally ready to let his superb GTA Mustang go, and here it is.
Built at the San Jose plant in California and sold originally by San Jose Ford on 11th January 1968, this Classic Mustang has never resided outside of California and retains its Black Plates to prove this. Ron had owned the car for nearly seven years and had bought it from an Air Force Officer based at March AFB in Riverside California and his ownership covered some 13 years. Before him another AF Officer had been the custodian back into the 80’s.
Ron confirmed the engine had been rebuilt approximately 200 miles before he purchased the car and he inspected the work carried out revealing freshly turned crank, new bearings, oil pump, re bored block with new pistons and rods plus the huge benefit of 428 Cobra Jet Cylinder Heads and Camshaft being installed.
With a 9inch rear end, power disc brakes and power steering this Classic Muscle Car handles the power of this powerful uprated 390 V8 motor and Ron confirms that the suspension, brakes and booster have all been replaced during his ownership.
All of this combined with its superbly solid, original & corrosion free body shell, make this rare S Code Coupe with a genuine GT package, a scarce and sought-after Muscle Car that is a real head turner and a joy to drive.
The original handbook plus a nice file of receipts and a Marti Report makes up the history file which is always a great bonus. Come and take a look for yourself, call our sales team on 01273 493860.
