competition in the Pony car market from the remaining "Big Three"
car manufactures. To answer the call in April of 1968 Ford
introduced the 428 Cobra Jet engine and made it an available option
for the Mustang.

This Mustang R-Code had been completely restored prior to its current ownership and remains in very good condition.
