Hello, I would like to buy a decent 67 or 68 390 car or an xr-7g. It doesn't matter much if it a GT or not. I dig X codes too. A small block xr7g would be something I would consider too. would like a nice driver or better 10k to 20k would be my preferred range. May be able to swing up to 30k for something really awesome. Of course a 69 or 70 428 car would be great too. Thanks in advance for any info guys.

Dave, If I'm not mistaken GTs all came with Disc Brakes. Correct me if I'm wrong. If I am correct your car is not a GT and should not be advertised as such.

get a Marti report Dave and then you'll know for sure as it will list the GT option. http://www.martiauto.com

I'll have to agree with Don. According to the GT registry it should have disc brakes, but we all know not everything is black and white.

Copied from the GT registry:

Power front Disc Brakes. 1967 Cougar uses 4-piston fixed (non-floating) caliper design. 1968 Cougar uses single piston fixed (floating) caliper design.
The GT could be ordered with any option available on the standard Cougar except for the 320 hp 390 GT V8 Engine (6.5 Litre fender badges), performance handling package, front Disc Brakes, or Wide Oval F70- 14 Tires as stand alone options. These options were included in the GT Performance Group.
Rear Brake Proportioning Valve mounted in rear Brake line before rear Axle Brake Hose part of Disc Brake option (67 only).

There were some GT's that were special ordered with from drum brakes. At the time some people did not trust disc brakes... There is a difference in the feel when you come to the end of a stop. Drum brakes store just a little bit of torque, so at the end of a stop they tend to push the car backwards just a little bit. Disc brakes don't do this. So, to some drivers the discs felt like they were not "working". A few drag racers also went with drums because they thought that discs added friction by dragging all the time.

You would need top have the Marti report to know for sure.

I would post a photo of the Marti Report with your other pics. That way a potential buyer will be clear on the issue.

Yeah, I always wonder why folks don't post the marti on expensive cars. I wouldn't start a resto on any Ford product without one.
