This San Jose built Mustang had remained in California for its entire life until being exported by Pilgrim Motorsports to the U.K. in 2019.

It was selected by the last owner because of its very original, accident and corrosion free body shell that would form the basis for a “Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing” high-performance build. A hint at the cars performance was borne out by the California Black Plates which read “ Sleepy 68”.

Originally equipped with a 289 cubic inch V8 but now powered by a Ford 351 Windsor Stroked to 410 cu in by specialist engine builder Rich Salmeron as detailed in the following data sheet.

Married to the 550 BHP engine is a new TKO Five Speed Gearbox, Limited Slip Differential held down by Race Springs and Shocks, Frame Lockers and Full Traction Bars.

Disc Brakes give great stopping power and the uprated Springs and Suspension give very much tighter and positive handling characteristics than the original set up would have provided.

Every aspect of the power unit and drive train have been upgraded with MSD distributor, coil and electronic ignition. Aluminium water pump and radiator plus thermo coupled electric cooling fans keep running temperatures under control.


Magna Flow Dual Exhausts with Stainless Steel Long Tube Hooker Manifolds and Electric By Pass Valves give a glorious sound to affirm the cars performance.



Traction is through Yokohama Tyres on period correct American Racing Torque Thrust D Series Alloy Wheels.

The restored interior has upgrades including Column Mounted Tachometer, Pro Car Elite Seats, (originals supplied with car) Full Custom Centre Console and High Quality Sony Stereo System.


Overall the build has been carried out to a very high standard giving a Classic Mustang exceptional performance and handling.

Import taxes paid and road registered in the U.K.
