A timeless classic in a great color combo and an affordable price.
This 1968 Ford Mustang checks all the right boxes with its 289 V8
and premium presentation. But really, you already wanted it just
because how something this cool is so easily within reach.
A red Mustang is always in-demand, but this one is memorable for so much more. This is the midpoint in the first generation where everything was given some sleeker and longer design elements, but it's still instantly recognizable as an original pony car. You see it in the deeper C-channel along the profile and the concave tail panel. And more than just that year's styling makes this one a standout. For example, the black vinyl roof is the perfect way to signal period-correct premium. Plus, the fog lights and GT wheel covers are great sporty touches that we all recognize. And we especially like this car's story. If you look at the trim tag, this has a sales district of DSO 22 - that's Charlotte, NC. So over half a century later, and this car is still being sold out of its hometown area.
Inside, the black vinyl bucket seats do a great job with matching the exterior roof. It looks great and retains the nice ribbed pattern that's repeated in the back seat and on the door panels. The driver gets the improved round gauge package that came on later versions of the first-gen Mustangs, and ahead of that, we are delighted to see no one has traded the original premium steering wheel for an aftermarket unit. The whole interior follows this car's period-correct and premium feelings. In fact, the only major component that did not come from the factory is the AM/FM radio. This upgrade to a more versatile digital tuner and iPod input blends nicely into the original knob-style radio opening.
This is a C-code Mustang, and so you get Ford's 289 cubic-inch V8 under the hood. It looks nice with the fined valve covers and long Cobra-style air toper. But more than just sporty, it runs with an extra kick of performance thanks to and Edelbrock Performer 289 intake and Holley four-barrel carburetor. There's a nice deep sound out of the dual exhaust that will make this Mustang a great cruise-in friend. And that feeling is backed up with easy driving features like the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and front disc brakes.
A complete and distinct icon like this will always be in demand. It's a desirable classic that's ready to run for the first person quick enough to harness this good-looking pony. Call today!!!
