1968 mustang

A: The only way to calibrate the speedo on these is to change the speedometer drive gear located in the transmission tailshaft.
There are several combinations, so make sure the drive and driven gear are compatible.
Your local Ford dealer should have a chart that will show the gears needed for the axle ratio and tire size.

A: Try the National Auto Dealers Assn web site. They have a classic car section that includes your 68 Mustang.

Q: How much would it cost to get a 1968 mustang GT coupe painted for lime green to lipstick red?
I bought a 1968 Ford Mustang GT coupe and I want It to be painted from lime green to lipstick red. It has no rust or scratches and I’ll only drive it in the summer. I can remove all the trim myself for painting and put it back on, in canadian dollars please.

A: Well you are asking a question about dollars and sense. It doesn’t make sense to spend all your dollars if you don’t have to, am I right? Well then, keeping that in mind, I will tell you that there are two way’s you can paint a car. There is the right way, obviously, and the wrong way, also obvious. The right way is to get the car looking like Ford actually painted it that color back in 1968. A correct and true color change will include the entire engine bay, the door jams, the interior and the the entire underside. The wrong way to paint it would be to cut corners just to save money. This includes NOT removing all trim/windows/lights/engine/trans./suspension components/brake lines/fuel lines/etc. The right way to “color change” a vehicle will easily cost you upwards of $10,000 Canadian. The wrong way can leave you with a fatter wallet but a smaller ego. The wrong way can still cost 1,2,3 maybe even $4,000 if you are a sucker. My suggestion, if you truly want to do this, is to entirely dismantle the whole car on your own, put it on a rotiserrie, have it towed to a shop that does acid dipping and sand blasting and then take it to whomever is painting it for you. This will allow them(the painter) to do their work and not worry about prep./overspray/etc.

A real color change is an expensive, time consuming process. I hope I have helped, good luck!

Q: How much wolud a fully restored 1968 Mustang Fastback sell for?
It is a 1968 Mustang Fastback with the 289 engine and the transmission is a c-4. It has fully restored interior. It has no miles ran on the engine.

A: ooohh baby thats a beaut

Q: How to start restoring a 1968 mustang fastback?
I just bought a 1968 mustang fastback. Its a sweet car. Im from SD but work on the road all the time. I would love to restore it myself but I obviously dont have the time. I would rather have someone in the state or close by restore it but not sure who really does it there. My main question is should I give it to a shop that could do everything and contract out the engine and other stuff while doing the body work or start by having a mechanic do all the work on the mechanics and then giving the car over to the body man. the car is in decent shape but is not driveable because a frame rail is rusted thru. 289 2v auto.

go to the above link to see a pic
The car looks great in a pic but its been sitting in a shed since 1982 and had a cheap enamel paint job done around 1980. the only rust is a lil in the shock towers and the rear right frame rail

A: Frame rot is pretty serious for a Mustang..You really need to find a Mustang does all repair shop.. The body has to be taken off the frame and replaced… Not fixed replaced… To redo the car all the way is gona cost $20-$25 K The car will be brand new… Some of these shops are really fantastic and do the job in 2-3 months… A 68 Mustang only costs $2200 new…If you change your mind about fixing it–sell it to some one who will..

i have a 1968 mustang fastback GT and it hasnt been registered for at least 10 years. What I am wondering is how much it will cost to register it in california. I am 44 years old if that has any importance. Thanks
just give a rough estimate of how much it will cost

A: It’s $69 plus any penalties and tranfers..If it’s been off the books that long it may be out of the computer and no penalties..

$69 is now the minimum for old cars…

Q: Is the trunk lid on a 1968 Mustang Fastback the same as the trunk lid on a 1968 Mustang Coupe?
I have a 1968 Mustang Fastback and I need doors for it. There is a local junk yard guy who has a Coupe and will give me the doors for a real good price. If you can please help me I would truly appreciate it. Thanks! Have a Nice Day!

A: The trunk lids are completely different, the fastback’s is smaller than the coupes. However the doors will fit just fine, if I remember correctly it’s only the glass that is different so you’ll need to replace the door glass.

Q: Where would you find information about installing windows in a 1968 Mustang?
We are restoring a 1968 Mustang ourselves and need help with the windows. Any website or any book would be great! Thanks!!

A: Your local parts house will have a repair manual and it will have some info on window repair.

Some “simple” projects can seem daunting, especially when it comes to glass. For some reason, nearly everyone is afraid of breaking glass, so they will either avoid working around it or go about doing things the hard way. Let’s look at this side window assembly and see how to remove the glass in the most efficient manner.

A typical car door window is held in place by the bottom track and a full – or partial – chrome-plated channel that frames it. The glass itself is sandwiched into these metal components with a rubber/fiber window channel material and some sort of sealing compound. In modern (post 1970)cars the sealing compound is probably a caulk-like material while in older cars the compound was a form of window putty. In either case the material solidifies over time and can be very hard to remove, so separating the window from the frame requires a little imagination.

In all cases you will be able to separate the top part of the window frame from the bottom channel. In the case of this T-Bird window there are three screws at the back end that hold the chrome channel to the bottom frame. We had to drill out one of them, but suffice to say that you should be able to remove the screws in some relatively easy way.

In all probability the channel is going to stick to the glass, as it did on the subject window. We softened the old, dried putty in the channel by soaking the window in the laundry tub overnight. Soapy water did the trick and we were able to gently remove the chrome channel from the window without bending anything. Tip: When prying against glass always use a wooden spatula or wrap duct tape around screwdriver blades to prevent chipping!

The bottom of the window is also held in the channel with fiber lining and putty, but this T-Bird window had been sealed with more modern materials sometime in the past 20-30 years. Soaking did nothing to soften the grip on the window, so in cases like this we recommend inserting a thin blade between the glass and lining and cutting along its length to free the glass from the channel. You have to take time doing this. Cut as deeply as possible on each pass until you get to the bottom. It is only when you can cut to the bottom on both sides of the glass that you can reliably pry the channel off. If you don’t do this you stand a good chance of bending the channel or breaking the glass.

I hope this will help you some.

Q: How do I change an automatic shift to a manual shift on a 1968 mustang?
hi, I have a 1968 mustang, and I have an automataic shift. I would really like to change it to either 4 or 5 speed manual, but I don’t know what i need to do the job at home without breaking the bank by going to a shop. If you could help, that would be great.Plz help.

Thanks

Bob

A: Transmission,bell housing,fly wheel,clutch pedal and all linkage,throw out bearing,shifter,and possibly drive shaft and clutch and pressure plate.

Q: Would it be cheaper to strip a 1968 mustang and paint the entire car or only paint the outside?
I have a 1968 ford mustang and was wondering if i should take everything out of the car and only leave the wheels to roll it on, then have everything painted (door jams, doors, interior metal…) or only paint the outside shell of the car. Which would be cheaper and which would be more necessary? Also the price. (not much body work needs to be done)

A: If you are keeping the car the same color, painting only the outside will suffice and cost A LOT less. If you are doing a full color change, I suggest painting the WHOLE car, otherwise it will look cheap.

Hope this helps, Good Luck!

A: You are going to need a manual trans, bellhousing, clutch disk, pressure plate, throwout bearing, pilot bearing, manual shifter and linkage, clutch pedal and linkage, manual nosecone on starter, and just basic hand tools. I swapped out an automatic for a four speed in a ‘66 Stang. It took me a full day and then some to make the swap. My driveshaft worked without any mods, and so did my crossmember.

How much would you sell the car for?

A: That should sell for about 4000 $ – 6500 $ … But as you said that it’s in a bad condition It might be worth a bit less than that … You can sell for more cuz it’s a muscle some people would buy it for much .
