I just found out that a friend of mine that races stock and superstock aquired and 68 GT-E "W" code car. It is in baskets, but mostly complete. It has a 6-13 build date! That's right a 6-13 of 1968 build date!
This car will soon have some Kevin Marti documentation, but we believe that it is the absolute last 427 powered FoMoCo ever produced!!!!!

Yes, all of the 427 GT-E Cougars were automatics. It is confirmed, my friend Bill Howell who races in NHRA/IHRA stock with a 70 one owner 428 CJ Mustang, and his daughter races in superstock with a 93 Cobra (with one of my old 289's) has the last factory produced 427 powered FoMoCo vehicle.

A full blown restoration. I just located him a missing cylinder head and a rather expensive correct Holley carb.
We believe that the reason the car was such a late production (June 1968) is that it was awaiting a very limited Daytona two speed rear axle. Also it appears as if the car was ordered by a high ranking FoMoCo executive.

Looks like Bill is selling the car in the same condition he bought it, although he has most parts for an engine. Here's the link:

Something not mentioned in the text is the fact that the roof has serious damage from someone walking on it and should be replaced.
