Looking for 68 Mustang Parts.
Posted by Anonymous on Wednesday, January 14, 2004 10:02 PM
I am starting to build a 68 Mustang for my boss's birthday. Does anyone make a 68 body thats not a fastback? I have AMT's 68 Shelby kit to start with. His Mustang is just a plain jane Mustang. 6 cyl auto hubcaps nothing too fancy. If anyone can help me I would really appreciate it. I have until April to get this model done. Thanks in advance.

Hey there
There is a model of a 67 fastback,by AMT.You can get a resin conversion kit from Motor City Resin Casters,that converts the model to a coupe.The 67 is almost exactly the same as the 68,as far as I know,there the same body

The '67 and '68 bodies are alike.The big difference is the '68 has side marker lights,the '67 didn't.

Thanks for the replies. I did some research today and I agree the 67 will make do for a 68. Guess I need to get on the ball and order the resin kit from Motor City Resin Casters. Has anyone ever dealt with them? Are the resin bodies of good quality? Any info will be helpful.

Thanks Again,
Bobby

I made a 68 California Special some time ago, there is a resin kit of this available but i decided to throw a 67 fastback, a 65 hardtop and a shelby together to make mine. The 67 and 68 are similar but in addition to adding side marker lights remember to take the F O R D off the hood, they were deleted for 68.

Best Of luck!!

when i built my model I had no idea there was even a resin version available and it was one of those 'neeeeed to have in my collection' models - (plus i think I got a dremel that Christmas! lol). i realised from my reference pics that the rooflines were different but went ahead anyway.

If I were to do it all over again I would go with the resin model, however this project did get my parts box collection looking healthy.
