1968 Ford Mustang Fastback
The Mustang was originally available as either a hardtop or
convertible, but during the car's early design phases a fastback
model was strongly considered. In 1965, a newly introduced Fastback
body version with its swept-back rear glass and distinctive
ventilation louvers became available.
Imagine having the coolest new car on the block in 1968, the Ford
Mustang. Then ramp that up and imagine the coolest version of said
wildly popular Mustang, that being the Fastback version. Couple
that with a 302ci V8 and strap a 4-barrel carburetor on and now you
are living large. A great example of this ultimate cool, we give
you this Fastback to grace your driveway, and also give you the
ability to turn the key and drive away, in this fully restored
version of one of the most popular cars ever built.
From the galloping pony on the front honeycombed grille, to the fog
lights which sit inside the grille and are flanked by a single
headlight and all the way back to the sloping rear roof line with
the iconic louvers this beautiful pony car possesses some small
faults (chipping, cracking and blemishes particularly on hood).
It's all about awe with the good condition Sunlit Gold respray,
restored chrome and britework, and classic original polished bullet
style wheel covers. And for giggles, let's throw in a tasteful
black racing stripe in matte black running from the dual intakes
near the front of the hood racing back to the windshield. Side
coves from the front quarters through the doors have a black dual
stripe denoting its border. Bringing up the rear is a GT emblazoned
gas filler cap, and exhaust protrudes through coves at the bottom
of the rear skirt. It just does not get any better than this.
Hold that last thought...because throw open the doors and reveal a
pristine black vinyl interior seating setup of a 2+2. This is
grounded by fade free carpet, and a Hurst shifter between the
standard buckets up front. A small center console that ends at the
front of the buckets can be seen which is not original to the car
but looks great and adds functionality with storage and to lean
your arm on. Looking at the dash, we see a wonderful amalgamation
of Sunlit Gold metal, and black vinyl with chrome bezeled circular
instruments flanking a speedometer. Sunlit Gold on the upper door
panels, and sides of the rear 2+2. A tight black headliner which
has recently been installed is above all this excitement.
A pop of the hood and you'll have to squint, because there is so
much bling you will barely be able to stand it! A proper 302 V8
topped by a a single 4-barrel carburetor and air cleaner in chrome.
Attached at the back is a top loader 4-speed manual transmission.
Correct Ford blue covers the block and valve covers.
Doesn't get any better than this, rust free, good floorpans,
unibody seams, and structurally sound framing. Independent coil
spring in front and leaf spring suspension on the rear, and drum
brakes all around are seen.
Starts quickly and sounds great. The Hurst shifter is a nice
addition. This car drives fantastically, the new black seats are
very comfortable. Car corners great and has good acceleration.
Flash back to 1968, suburbia in the driveway, hottest car to come
along in years, and it's in your neighbor's driveway. Fast forward
we are in the new millennium, same car, now your driveway, and the
car looks and performs better than it did when it left the
showroom. Come on down .....Fast....back!
