From a deceased estate; fully spec'd Fastback with useful upgrades;
351ci; Edelbrock heads; steering rack conversion; tubular headers;
Performance 351 intake manifold and Holley carb; imported from dry-state
This J-Code Fastback was produced in the Metuchen, New Jersey plant in 1968 and originally came fitted with the 302cu in Windsor with a four-barrel carb.
Imported into the UK in 2003, nothing is known of its first 35 years - a common enough situation on US imports, although multiple bills on file from UK registration show plenty of love and attention over the subsequent 20 years.
The V5C shows five owners since arrival on these shores, although the last two are from the same family. The vendor's late husband purchased it in 2013 from Cloud 9 Cars and very much enjoyed driving it.
The car has had a significant number of subtle but effective improvements which have transformed its already decent performance.
The engine appears to be a 351ci and is fitted with Edelbrock performance heads. The Holley performance intake manifold supports a Holley Street Avenger carb and there is paperwork in the file which refers to a Comp Camshaft although we obviously can't check to see that one is fitted. The fuel lift pump is also by Holley.
The headers are tubular and the engine bay is very neat and tidy, with an alloy radiator to take care of the cooling. All in all, quite the package.
The vendor purchased a reconditioned gearbox by American Automatics in Southend-on Sea. They supplied a Ford C4 unit with the correct spline and 10 1/2" converter built into a donor V8 box with an A Code Mustang servo.
There are plenty of older invoices on file and its most recent MOT expired in 2017 since when it has covered fewer than 1,000 miles.
In very sound order bodily and with what appears to be a significantly upgraded engine, this Fastback Mustang ticks all the right boxes.
