There is a 6 cylinder engine in the Moebius 1969 Ford F100 Custom kit.  I don't know what size it is other than it is 1/25 scale.

Missing Link Resin Casters out of Detroit also makes a decent straight-6 Ford engine. I bought one for a '64 Falcon project I'll be working on. It's not bad.

I would recommend trying to obtain the six out of a 62-63 Falcon . Remember the early Mustangs were placed on Falcon Platforms .

I'd like to know more about your project! Like, where did you find a 68 Coupe body? Any pictures or info would be great! I have a 68 Coupe and would like to build a scale model of it. 

Thanks!

I didn't find a 68 body for my project but I have 2 67 kits and a 66 kit that is a coupe. I am going to use tge 66 to copy and cut the end pillars where the rear windsheild is and make copies from the 66. Then cut the 67 and glue and putty in my copies. I will worry about the rear windsheild later. I hope that explains my idea.
