1968 Ford Mustang Coupe
The 1968 Mustang was the first year for several things, most notably the 302 V8 engine. It is also the only year a VIN plate was put on the passenger side of the dash, and one of only two years of this body style (67-68).
Why This Car Is Special
Horsepower. That is what makes this Mustang special. The most desirable color combination doesn't hurt either.
A 351 Windsor is stroked to 393 cubic inches of raw power. A Holley 4-barrel carburetor sits atop a Weiand Stealth aluminum intake and feeds Edelbrock Performer Aluminum heads. The ignition is handled by an MSD 6AL box and the exhaust duties are left to very capable Hooker headers running to true dual exhaust with glass packs. This car sounds like a built big block at idle but still revs fast and easy like a small block. This powerhouse is mated to a modern 5-speed manual transmission, to keep you in control at all times. Front disc brakes provide the stopping power, and power steering makes light work of tight turns.
The interior is basically stock 1968 Mustang. The exceptions are a Kenwood AM/FM/Cassette player, the 5-speed shifter and a couple extra gauges mounted under the dash. The black vinyl bucket seats with seat belts are in great shape, as is the carpet, door panels, dash and headliner. A Grant GT steering wheel is a nice touch and doesn't detract from the classic interior. The stock Mustang steering wheel had a large unsightly center section, so most would consider this a cosmetic upgrade.
A bright red Mustang is what most people think of when they think 'classic car'. This Mustang looks great in red, with American Racing Torque Thrust wheels, rocker panel moldings and just enough chrome and brightwork to tie it all together. The front end of these 67-68 Mustangs is killer with the pony in the corral and the functional inverted hood scoops with turn signal indicators. They were a cool touch then, and still look great today. This car has a great look that is sure to get you noticed.
Mustangs are always popular, and the 60s cars move fast. If you're searching for a Mustang coupe with good power and great looks, you're search is over!
