Basic tool set
Feeler gauge
Timing light

You can handle most Everything yourself, these cars are so very basic.

Try it,.......

I agree with Israel. I couldn’t afford a mechanic so I bought the book and some tools along the way. Over the years I now have an awesome of tools, a tool cabinet as tall as you and have learned a lot through this forum!

The "mechanics" of a '68 Mustang are simple. Replacing rusted sheet metal is a different story.
Has the OP actually seen the extent of the rust problem?

Lots of members in Texas, but we need pics to understand the extent of problems. Got several 68s, so can give a good guess. If u are needing a shop for major restoration, we can advise there as well...
