According to fordclassics.com McDuff, these were the available engine options. Although there were several CIs available in 1968 none of them seemed to be the 351. I can't find a source on the net that says there were 351s in any 1968 Mustangs (my first car by the way ... in the ever popular seafoam green!) 1968 Mustang # 200 c.i. @ 115 h.p. w/8.8:1 compression with one barrel carburator. # 289 c.i. @ 195 h.p. w/8.7:1 compression with two barrel carburator. # 302 c.i. @ 210 h.p. w/9.0:1 compression with two barrel carburator. # 302 c.i. @ 230 h.p. w/10.0:1 compression with four barrel carburator. # 390 c.i. @ 325 h.p. w/10.5:1 compression with four barrel carburator. # 427 c.i. @ 390 h.p. w/10.9:1 compression with four barrel carburator. # 428 c.i. @ 335 h.p. w/10:5:1 compression with four barrel carburator. # Three body types available: 2 dr. hardtop, 2 dr. convertible and a 2 dr. fastback. # Only the GT models received the 390 c.i. 1969 Mustang # 200 c.i. @ 120 h.p. w/8.8:1 compression with one barrel carburator. # 250 c.i. @ 155 h.p. w/9.0:1 compression with one barrel carburator. # 302 c.i. @ 210 h.p. w/9.5:1 compression with two barrel carburator. # BOSS 302 c.i. @ 290 h.p. w/10.5:1 compression with four barrel carburator. # 351 c.i. @ 250 h.p. w/9.5:1 compression with two barrel carburator. # 351 c.i. @ 290 h.p. w/10.7.1 compression with four barrel carburator. # 390 c.i. @ 320 h.p. w/10.5:1 compression with four barrel carburator. # 428 c.i. @ 335 h.p. w/10:6:1 compression with four barrel carburator. # 428 c.i. @ 335 h.p. w/10:6:1 compression with four barrel carburator. # BOSS 429 c.i. @ 375 h.p. w/10.5:1 compression with four barrel carburator. # Only some of the 428 c.i.

Hi McDuffik49, I researched the '68 Mustang and although i am not willing to say that there was ABSOLUTELY not a '68 Mustang with a 351cj i have found no evidence that ford produced 351 in the 1968 Mustang.

The 351 was not put into any Mustang until 1969. So, if he has a 351 in his '68, it's not original.

hes a hamburg, theres no such thing as a 351cj, only 428 and 429. 351 didnt come out til 69

The only 351 available in 1969 was the windsor (its inaugural year). The cobra jet didnt come out untl 1971.
