My new daily driver...

Long story short, someone backed into my cadillac and insurance totaled it. I was on the hunt for something I could drive everyday, I came across a 68 mustang that had been sitting for a few years. called the guy and talked to him, he told me to bring a trailer, it doesnt run. When I called him the next day he told me he put a new battery and gas in it and it runs. Great! there goes my lowball offer! lol...

I ended up driving it home! Its a Ford, no need for a trailer!

Re: My new daily driver...

I guess I could add in the specifics on the car...

Originally a 6 cyl car
Was told it had a 289, I think it is a 302... the spark plugs are the smaller ones. as far as I know that means it has the later 302 head, which have larger combustion chambers, so if its a 289 it would have real low compression.
C4 auto (been thinking about a t5 already)
tag on the rear says it has 2.73 gears, cruises nice on the highway!
