biggrin 1968 ford galaxie 500 2dr fastback (new project)

hi i recently purchased my new project car, a 68 galaxie 500. it has about 157k on the orginal 390 and has been sitting for quite some time so i am having to do alot of rebuilding and replacing of parts before it is road worthy. but anyways i was wondering if anyone could give me some specs on this cars. like wheel hp and 1/4 mile times from the same 2dr cars. i would also like some 0-60 times as well. Can anyone tell me where i can get a used 6-pack from??? :s5
