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 consigner stated 393ci stroker 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. We give you a Bullitt clone. In the name of full disclosure
we must divulge that this car started life as a hardtop and
underwent a massive transformation to become the fastback seen
before you. Extensive work brings you the car before your eyes and
a full photo album of the transformation comes with the
From the simple blackened front horizontal ribbed grille, shaved of
its galloping pony, to the single headlight on either side, up
through the hood complete with rear facing dual cowls with inset
turn signal indicators, we are bathed in Highland Green with envy.
The sloping rear roof line in fastback form has louvered B pillar
vents. This beautiful pony car possesses excellent fit and finish.
It's all about awe with the good condition, and shape of this
beauty. Restored chrome and britework, and classic American Racing
matte gray 5 spoke wheels are wrapping all 4 corners. Bringing up
the rear is a centrally located large glass filler cap, and the
iconic 3 taillights this time using the V pattern angling inward.
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 plus 2. This is
grounded by fade free carpet, and a Hurst shifter between the
standard low back buckets up front. Looking at the dash, we see a
wonderful amalgamation of dual eyebrow cowled padded black vinyl
dash tops, wood applique, and new round analog/digital gauges
completely revamped and restyled as to their location from the
original. Black panels are on the door panels, and sides of the
rear 2 plus 2. A digital radio now sits where the original was and
looks very nice. A tight black headliner which has recently been
installed is above all this excitement and sports an aluminum plane
led console that runs from the rear 2 plus 2's to the front where
it affords some LED downlighting. Very modern. A GT500 Cobra
emblazoned center badged steering wheel with drilled spokes sits in
front of the redone dash.
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 consigner
stated 393ci V8 which started life as a 351ci Windsor V8 and has
now been bored and stroked. This is topped by Blue Oval Performance
heads, headers, shiny Ford valve covers, and a single 4-barrel
Quickfuel carburetor over an Edelbrock polished intake. Attached at
the back is a 5-speed manual transmission by Tremec, and a rear
axle of 8.8 inches with 4.11 gears.
Doesn't get any better than this, rust free, good floorpans and
unibody seams, and structurally sound framing. Martz independent
coil overs and rack and pinion steering for the front, and 4 link
with coil overs on the rear are the suspension makeup. Power
Wilwood disc brakes are all around, and a Flowmaster exhaust snakes
its way rearward...
Starts quickly and sounds great. The Hurst shifter is a nice
addition. This car drives fantastically, corners like it's on
rails, and stops on a dime. Good acceleration is an understatement,
and a loud cruise is available with the 5-speed tranny.
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, your driveway, and the car
looks and performs better than it did when it left the showroom.
Come on down .....Fast....back! Bullitt clone, and all buttoned
