    I just took these pics the other day. The car has been sitting now for about 8 years, so I cleaned her up a bit and took some pics. More pics and info in the for sale section.

    I am selling this to finnish my 1966 Coup. I have to many projects, and not enough money. I am tired of having 2 cars sitting. 1 being nickle and dimed to completion. The other waiting for it to get done, so I can start on it. If I sell this one atleast I will have 1 done. I started on my 1966 Coup in August of 1987. I want it completed before next August. I have had this car for 19 years it is going to hurt seeing it go. But if I don't get what I want It will go nowhere.


    The car is in Pa.

    Who evere gets this car has a great starting platform. I am going to hate to see her go. She has been a good girl and a miserable bitch, But it is still a 1968GT. I will most likely never get another shot at owning one.

    Poor little fastback!

    Good luck on the sale, it should go easliy. there's not many more around since Shelby started gobbeling them up to make the GT500 Cloners.

    It looks pretty clean, is the floorpan all rusted out like mine was?
    I've got the origional GT Wheels off my 67. That may add value to selling your'se?? just a thought

    Good luck on the 66 build, Now we won't have the same cars, that's something...

    The Floor pans, shock towers, Torque boxes are all in very good condition. One of the fender aprons has a small spot about an inch or two around of surface rust. I think there is a small spot on the passenger side floor that needs repair.

    I have the original GT wheels for the car. The wheels that are on the Falcon were on the car, and if you look at the 1966 pictures the GT wheels are on that. The wheels that are on it now are the Falcon wheels minus the hub caps.
