Mustang fans, let me be the first to assure you that this awesome 1968 GT fastback checks out: S-code 390 cubic inch big block, 4-speed gearbox, and a black-on-black color combination, all verified by a Marti Report and it's wearing a high-grade recent restoration. Is it expensive? Only if you're the kind of guy who's happy with second-best.
This Mustang is serious. It's black, it's fast, and it pulls no punches in any regard. It's beautiful in every way that a car can be and the sheetmetal looks stretched over the frame so tightly that you know there's not an ounce of fat on it anywhere. And that's a good thing because black paint keeps no secrets and the sheetmetal on this car is super straight and super sharp. Doors fit right, the hood sits flush, and the deck lid blends seamlessly into the fastback profile to give it a beautiful, uninterrupted curve. It's got some bright trim, just enough to highlight the fastback's most delicious details, including the convex tail panel and gaping grille with fog lamps in its center. Chrome bumpers sparkle and it proudly wears GT badges without reservation; if any car deserves to wear those letters, it's this one.
The all-black interior is every bit as wonderfully restored, with crisp, well-detailed seat covers on the buckets, a correct steering wheel with large center, and a console. If you can touch it, it's probably new, including the carpets and door panels, and basic black was the original choice so that's what went in during the restoration. The instrument panel and gauges are crisp and brightly rendered, focused on the speedometer and tach with auxiliary gauges above, and that '60s font on their faces has been recently enshrined in late-model Mustangs to provide a tie to the past. The Marti report confirms that this is a genuine 4-speed car and it includes such desirable features as an original AM/8-track radio and the center console with "garage" storage compartment. The fold-down back seat gives the fastback more practicality than its more conventional siblings and the trunk is nicely finished with a reproduction mat and tire cover for the full-sized spare.
We believe that the engine is the original 390 cubic inch V8, rebuilt and detailed to a very high standard. The '67 Mustangs were redesigned just so this engine would fit between the shock towers and the performance is definitely worth the effort. With bottomless reserves of torque and instant throttle response from the modern Holley carburetor (the original carb comes with the car), it's almost impossible to resist putting your foot on the floor. Ford Blue paint covers the block and heads, and remarkably, it still includes all its original smog equipment, suggesting a carefully preserved car from the start. Correct details range from the stamped hoses to the reproduction battery, and it runs superbly. The 4-speed feels robust and that torquey 390 doesn't need anything more than the 3.25 gears out back, so it's a great highway cruiser as well. Glasspack-style mufflers give it a wonderful cackle and the chassis is detailed with correct red oxide primer on the floors. Stamped steel wheels with big 225/70/14 BFGoodrich radials ensure great handling.
A lot of Mustangs are more hype than substance, but this incredible GT fastback under-promises and over-delivers, which is what I suspect the original owner was shooting for when he ordered it. Call today!
