Mustang fans, let me be the first to assure you that any
resemblance between this 1968 Ford Mustang fastback and the famous
one used by Steve McQueen in "Bullitt" is purely intentional.
Complete with a 390 cubic inch V8, a 4-speed, and those famous
Torque Thrust wheels, this car has the look that everyone
This Mustang is serious. It's nasty, it's fast, and it pulls no punches in any regard. It's beautiful in every way that a car can be and the sheetmetal looks stretched over the frame so tightly that you know there's not an ounce of fat on it anywhere. And that's a good thing because dark paint like the code R Highland Green keeps no secrets and the sheetmetal on this car is super straight and super sharp (by the way, Highland Green is this car's original color, a nice bonus!). Doors fit right, the hood sits flush, and the deck lid blends seamlessly into the fastback profile to give it a beautiful, uninterrupted curve. It's got some bright trim, just enough to highlight the fastback's most delicious details, but the grille has been properly blacked out and all the emblems removed, just like the movie car. Chrome bumpers sparkle and we love the way the blacked-out tail panel looks, complete with simple GT gas cap.
The all-black interior is every bit as wonderfully restored, with crisp, well-detailed seat covers on the buckets, a wood-rimmed steering wheel, and Hurst shifter sticking out of the transmission tunnel. If you can touch it, it's probably new, including the carpets and door panels, and basic black was the original choice so that's what went in during the restoration. The instrument panel and gauges are crisp and brightly rendered, focused on the speedometer and tach with auxiliary gauges above, plus an Auto Meter oil pressure gauge in the center, and that '60s font on their faces has been recently enshrined in late-model Mustangs to provide a tie to the past. Other upgrades include an AM/FM/Bluetooth/iPod radio in the original slot, cold factory A/C with modern hardware, and a fold-down rear seat. The trunk is nicely finished with a reproduction mat and tire cover for the full-sized spare.
The engine is a potent 390 cubic inch V8, rebuilt and detailed to a very high standard. The '67 Mustangs were redesigned just so this engine would fit between the shock towers and the performance is definitely worth the effort. With bottomless reserves of torque and instant throttle response from the big 4-barrel carburetor it's almost impossible to resist putting your foot on the floor. Ford Blue paint covers the block and heads, along with chrome valve covers that add a dash of dress-up. Correct details range from stamped hoses to reproduction decals, and it runs superbly. The 4-speed feels robust and that torquey 390 doesn't need anything more than the 3.00 gears out back, so it's a great highway cruiser as well. Long-tube headers, an X-pipe, and Flowmaster mufflers give it a wonderful cackle and the chassis is upgraded with subframe connectors, traction bars, and 4-wheel disc brakes, so it certainly runs like Steve's car and then some. Proper sand cast Torque Thrust wheels with big 215/65/15 Pirelli radials ensure great handling.
A lot of Mustangs are more hype than substance, but this incredible fastback allows you to relive a great movie moment as well as own a fantastic Mustang. Call today!
