Car description

The recipe is simple: take one vintage Mustang, add a powerful V8, fill it with accessories, then dress it in super-slick gray metallic paint. In reality, the application of the recipe is somewhat more challenging, but this 1968 Ford Mustang coupe absolutely nails it. Take a closer look but do it fast, because this is a dialed-in Pony that won't last long.
This vintage Ford isn't about investments and numbers-chasing, it's about traditional Mustang performance wrapped inside a tough-looking package. And a big part of that appeal is making one of the greatest designs of all time into something that makes people stop in their tracks. This great-looking Pepper Gray Metallic Mustang is extremely well done and it's likely that no 1968 Mustang ever had paint this shiny and dynamic coming off the factory floor. It looks quite fresh, having been completed in the not-too-distant past, and the awesome color suits the muscular coupe perfectly. 1968 was a when the Pony started to look like it was chiseled from granite, and that aggressive styling and those stark design lines were precursors for the models to come in the next few years. Look closely and you'll find a few minor flaws in the finish, but this is definitely a higher-end driver quality car, and we're very pleased to see that they let the original shape speak for itself. There were no obnoxious stripes added, no ground effects, not even a cowl hood or spoiler were installed, and that subjective restraint is exactly what makes this car look so timeless. Gaps are very good, the panels are straight, and there probably aren't many car guys and gals who can't imagine themselves behind the wheel of this coupe. Chrome and stainless is quite nicely done, giving this Mustang a high-quality look that isn't just an illusion, all while providing a little bling that blends with the metallic in the paint perfectly. Forget trailer-queen show cars, this one is built to drive and you'll love the way it looks going down the road.
The fairly stock look inside is a result of blending original and reproduction pieces seamlessly to give it a very inviting look, and a couple choice aftermarket pieces give the cabin a very bespoke feel. Most of the soft components are recent, including the very fresh beige vinyl seat covers, plush carpets, and a suede headliner, and the matching door panels that include the same beige vinyl on the seats and the same gray paint found on the exterior. These builders really knew how to come around full circle to make a car feel complete. We like the no-nonsense look of this coupe, and that includes the shifter right on the transmission tunnel and the stock dash pad, and although some might argue that the aftermarket woodgrain steering wheel may be a bit overboard, it's a very expensive unit that feels great in the hands of the driver. For entertainment, there's a powerful Pioneer AM/FM/CD/AUX head unit in the dash, although if you're like many of us that prefer the symphony an American V8 produces, you'll never use the radio. Original-style gauges look crisp and clear and do a great job of tracking things under the hood, and a small console between the front buckets houses cup holders for your comfort. The neatly finished trunk is further protected with a reproduction mat in the center pan and thanks to the slightly larger size of the 67-68 cars, there's plenty of room for your gear.
The "C" in the VIN says this car should be carrying a 289 cubic inch V8 with a 2-barrel carb, and even though we can't verify if this block is numbers-matching (Ford didn't stamp VINs on their motors), a 289 V8 with a 2-barrel is exactly what powers this Pony today. Equipped with a chrome dress-up kit that includes a chrome air cleaner and matching valve covers, and painted with correct Ford Blue on the block, the car delivers on the performance promises made by the appealing exterior curb appeal. It runs extremely well, with smooth torque befitting the semi-formal coupe, but a ripping performance soundtrack when you're running hard. The C4 3-speed automatic transmission shifts crisply and makes this an effortless cruiser, and with the help of power steering and 4-wheel disc brakes, this Pony handles itself very well out on the street. A mellow-sounding H-pipe dual exhaust system gives it a little more oomph traditional Mustang sound and it sports dual chrome tips under the rear valence, which is correct for 1968. Bright American Racing Torque Thrust wheels look right and carry 225/50/16 front and 255/50/16 rear BFGoodrich radials.
This is the Mustang you've been dreaming about since you were nine years old. Go ahead; at this price, it's about time you owned a Mustang. Give us a call today!
