Exclusive to this model year was the 302 (4.9-liter) small-block V8, which was equipped with a 2-barrel carburetor. This time, the maximum power was 210 horsepower. A 4-barrel sibling was also offered on the J-code Mustang, with the power output raised to 230 horsepower.
The 1968 Mustang that someone has recently pulled from a barn is one of these J-code models, and according to eBay seller allabtr78, the engine needs some work due to the many years of sitting. It’s not exactly clear what this means, so we can’t tell for sure if the engine is stuck or at least turns over.
On the other hand, the photos do confirm this is a genuine barn find, as the Mustang is covered in a thick layer of dust that, at some level, hides its actual condition. The seller, however, guarantees this pony comes in a very solid shape, and while some rust does exist, only minor TLC would be required to bring it back to the road.
Nevertheless, this doesn’t seem to be a project that is as easy as the seller claims. Some parts are likely missing as well – a series of extras, including the trim pieces, are also available even if they’re not visible in the provided photos.
So at the end of the day, this is one rather mysterious and very intriguing Mustang that could be worth a full inspection before committing to a purchase. The bidding starts at $3,000, and a reserve is also in place.
