68'?

http://batonrouge.craigslist.org/cto/3640405269.html

Yay or nay? Beautiful Car.
Anything I should be wary of when I go to look at it?

Yay. I wouldn't normally get a car that someone else modded but that one looks pretty good. What would you offer?

It would be nice to pick up something like this. But I don't want someone's custom. I want something a lil more back to original. It'll cost more. But as a lot of women know, beauty isn't cheap

Correct. 1968s had rear side markers and the lettering of the word mustang changed from block lettering to script. You'd have to see the vin to determine if its a 67 or modded 68. Only concerning thing I noted (forget about the integrity of the engine) but the 8 inch rear end wasn't designed for that much Hp. You'd be better with a 9 inch ford to handle that much power and torque. Just my 2cents.

I haven't made an offer on it. Not sure what # I should offer. I don't wanna disrespect the guy.

But i posted this here to get more info as what you stated. Don't wanna make an offer and possibly buy something that's gonna turn out to be a turd or a complete money pit

Run away quickly 68 was the first required by law to have the side turn lights. Late 67 might have had them also. The rear is a 67 or 68 the front I am not sure of. Besides the diff I would worry about the brakes the frame twisting from to much power. Start with a base car and build it our self. Check the VIn here to see if it started life as a inline six or a V8.

Yeah I guess this one is busted.

I want something that's more of a cruiser. Not a racer
