There was a lot of vintage Ford sheet metal on display at SEMA 2014, and I’m embarrassed to say that this one almost slipped by me! This 1968 Ford Mustang was just steps away from the Mustang at the Wilwood booth, and I almost didn’t see it. This dark green beauty was on display at the Griffin Radiator booth.
Griffin is a South Carolina-based company that has been making performance aluminum radiators since 1981. The 1968 Mustang in their booth appears to be most of the way through a major restoration. It’s common to see cars at SEMA that aren’t quite done yet.
With this car, everything but the interior appeared to be complete. The door panels and carpet were removed, showing off an interior coated in Dynamat sound deadening material. The outside was finished in a flat olive green with matte black hood and roof.
I couldn’t find any specs on the engine or other details about the car’s suspension, wheels, or even if this project has a clever, tongue-in-cheek name. In any case, we hope to see this car completed the next time around!
