This 1968 Ford Mustang has a distinctly dark style and plenty of speedy upgrades. And when that’s on a coupe that has been under the care of only two families for over a half-century, then you know you’ve found an awesome V8 classic.
This is a Mustang of distinction. The Marti Report confirms that this was born with the Sprint B package that gives you GT-style details, like the fog lights in the grille and flip-out gas cap. And this one turns the sporty style up a notch further with the bright dual exhaust tips and polished torque thrust style wheels. Plus, we love the history of this one. We’ve been told this has been under the care of two families for its entire life. And that seems right because there’s a feeling of respected quality everywhere from the straightness of the sheet metal to the shine of the chrome bumpers. And the color upgrade is awesome. This was given an upgrade in 2009 to a very deep and dark purple that also has a great metallic element. You always know the color is not quite dark enough to be black, because there’s also a great-looking black vinyl roof.
The black interior goes nicely with the exterior’s dark theme. The seats, carpeting, headliner, and door panels have a good look that makes this coupe a nice place to spend some time. There are also worthwhile upgrades like an armrest center console w/cup holders and an Alpine AM/FM/CD stereo w/Bluetooth. These later first-gen Mustangs had an interior that was even more driver-focused. So you’ll love the front bucket seats, large gauge package, and the artful dual-spoke steering wheel.
The engine bay shows off Ford 289 cubic inch V8 power. These are a known hardy powerhouse that loves a good upgrade, and so this one has all the ones you love, like a Holley four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, polished valve covers, and long tube headers that feed into a dual exhaust. The enhanced V8 fires up nicely like a well-respected powerhouse. Plus, features like power steering, power brakes, front discs, and a three-speed automatic transmission make it a nice anytime driver.
The sale comes complete with a Marti Report, title documentation, maintenance records, and a reproduction owner’s manual. This iconic pony car that has extra style and a story to tell. It makes for the kind of classic that you’ll love to drive and tell people all about it when you arrive. Call today!!!
