Apparently it used to be a V6 didn't know that until now. The owner says its completely been re done to make it a v8. Should I be weary of this??

Not to be picky but a 67 never had a V6 they had a 200 straight 6. If it was a S6 then front shocks springs and a few other things need to be changed out so it can support the V8 do you have images of the engine compartment post them up. Run the Vin and see what it comes out as. Also by the pictures something else is the front end I am not sure but something don't look correct

Besides misalignment? Can't say for sure about the pony/corral, but the grill material itself looks like 67/68. It looks like a GT hood, easy enough to keep or switch I guess. What are you seeing?

Wait, it has both the pony and bar (67) and the outer ring (68) on the grille. Is that it?

Sorry guys, didn't notice I had hits on this thread. It's an amazing deal imo. $2,500. Yes it used to be an S6 technically. The owner said everything has been done to make it carry the 289 properly. I will go on Wednesday to check it out (bank screwed my chances of going today)

The 289 is bored 40 over and has a 292 cam, I'm excited to hear it fire up. Ive been away from mustangs for too long.

The grill does seen a tad sunk in or something.

Check the under cowl area mine was completely rusted out. I have a 68 i completely restored. If you ever have any questions i can try to help i also have complete wire/vacuum diagrams. As far as the swap for l6 to v8 is pretty common. There were only a couple differences like rear end and i believe disk brakes up front and springs other wise im pretty use everything else was the same easiest way to tell if the swap was done right is if it has 5 lug instead of 4 lugs. And you said it looks like the grill is pushed in? Just take a look at the core ( radiator ) support if its bent then obviously its been in a wreck of some sort just go over with a fine tooth comb! Good luck with the sale!

As mentioned, a good way to check the cowl is with a bucket of water. With permission of the seller, pour it into the cowl vents, then check the carpet by the firewall and the firewall inside the engine bay for water.

My main concern would be structural rust. Personally I would get underneath it with a light and check the state of the framerails, floor pans, wheel wells, trunk, etc. of course everything can be fixed/replaced, but the dollars can add up fast.

I would also run the vin - there are a few free dmv sites that will let you know if the car has been used in a crime/stolen. Also make sure the public vin (driver side) matches the confidential vin (pass side). Nice peace of mind before laying out cash.

Yup I think you got it. I knew something didn't look correct but I am not at home to look at mine and see what it was. The hood is a 68 and has the blinkers in it. It was an option if I am not mistaken. Make sure you find a drivers side mirror for the door cause there is not one on it that I can see.

So what's up with the grill? And what about the blinkers? (Forgive my lack of knowledge) I am learning all I can about these older cars. And I just noticed it has no mirrors. Haha. I will get them.

Thank you, if I end up bringing this home I'm sure I will be asking a lot of questions.

This is a 68 grill look for pictures of a 67 grill I am pretty sure that it did not have the pony and bar. As for the hood it was a normal swap so I wouldn't worry about it. Look at the wheels the V8 had 5 lugs and the I6 had 4 mine is a 68 with no power brakes just drums front and back original 289 car

The indents in the hood are part of the GT group for 67, my car has them (you can see in my pictures). Not sure I they existed for 68. Each of those indents has (or should have) a light that illuminates with your turn signal.

Possibly not stock to your car since it came with the GT option, but not a bad upgrade unless you're a stickler to originality.

Actually I don't even know if you could get an I6 GT...

I think so as long as the swap was complete and that there isn't rust!

Okay, awesome. Always dreamed of owning a late 60's mustang.

---------- Post added at 12:10 AM ---------- Previous post was at 12:05 AM ----------

Has anyone heard of a 292 circle trac cam the car is supposed to have? Hoping it will rumble a bit.

It is certainly priced right, but +1 on the rust concern! Definitely look it over (under) closely!

A 292 seems pretty big for a little motor. I got a 286/290 in my 390 and its got a very obvious lope. I would try to look it up and get info on it. If it really is a 292 I guarantee their will be lope and its a high rpm cam of course. Might not be a fun car to cruise around in

Have you done much too motors before? Its not hard just takes a little time, might wanna have a buddy with ya that knows some things. Gotta have a puller for your harmonic balancer take timing chain cover off, timin chain, pull out the cam oil up the new one and slide her in put er back together

There's a lot of smart guys on here I don't know much at all but I have built a few motors and done a couple years of body work. There's a guy in my town that has a stock motor with a huge cam, lopes like crazy but is pretty much powerless and almost dies cuz of the lope not a cruiser at all. I'd check the rpm range on that cam. Mines 2000-6000 rpm and I got an 1800 stall torque converter and it works out pretty nicely
