Description

EXTREMELY NICE MUSTANG W/ GREAT PAINT, 289 V8, AUTO, A/C, PS&B W/ FR DISC, CLEAN

The recipe is simple: take one vintage Mustang, add a V8, fill it with accessories, then dress it in handsome blue paint. In reality, the application of the recipe is somewhat more challenging, but this 1968 Ford Mustang coupe absolutely nails it.

This pony isn't about investments and numbers-chasing, it's about traditional Mustang performance. And a big part of that appeal is making one of the greatest designs of all time into something that makes people stop in their tracks. This great-looking blue Mustang is arguably over-restored, since no 1968 Mustang ever had paint this shiny on the showroom floor, and it's quite fresh, having been completed in the not-too-distant past. Look closely and you'll be hard pressed to even find a few minor flaws, but I'm pleased to see that they let the original shape speak for itself, and it speaks beautifully. Gaps are excellent, the panels are straight, and there aren't many Americans who can't imagine themselves behind the wheel of this coupe. Chrome and stainless is quite good, giving this coupe a high-quality look that isn't just an illusion, with some parts, such as the door handles, likely being original. There's also a black vinyl top that helps dress it up a bit without removing that Mustang attitude, leaving us with one great-looking coupe.

The fairly stock look inside is a result of blending original and reproduction pieces seamlessly to give it a very inviting look. Most of the soft components are new, including the seat covers and carpets, while the door panels also appear to be recent and inserted into original door skins. You're going to love the center console, which houses the automatic shifter and the factory "garage door" storage area up front, adding a very sporty look, and there's a powerful AM/FM/CD stereo with speakers throughout the interior and a subwoofer in the trunk. This car originally had A/C, and the whole system has been upgraded with modern components, so it blows ice cold and remains easy to service. And one glance in the trunk is proof that this car has probably led an easy life, and the full-sized spare is just a good idea.

The VIN says this car should be carrying a 289 cubic inch V8, which is what currently lives under the hood. Equipped with a chrome dress-up kit, the car delivers on the performance promises made by the appealing blue paint. It's mostly stock, but the intake manifold is topped by an Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor instead of the original 2-barrel while the A/C system is entirely new and the structure is reinforced with an export brace and Monte Carlo bar. It runs extremely well, with smooth torque befitting the semi-formal coupe, but a ripping performance soundtrack when you're running hard. The C4 3-speed automatic transmission shifts crisply and makes this an effortless cruiser and power steering and power front disc brakes are always welcome features in an early Mustang. A mellow-sounding dual exhaust system gives it that traditional Mustang sound and the tub has been reinforced with a set of subframe connectors that make a notable difference. Period Torque Thrust wheels look right and carry fresh 225/60/14 BFGoodrich radials.

This is the Mustang you've been dreaming about since you were nine years old. Go ahead; at this price, it's about time you owned a Mustang. Give us a call today!
