1968 Ford Mustang Convertible

The Mustang was first introduced by Ford in 1964 and remains in production today making it Ford's longest produced car. The 1st generation spanned from March of 1964 to 1973 and created a completely new class of automobiles known as the "pony car" segment. Throughout this 1st gen the cars saw multiple revisions as they grew in overall dimensions as well as gaining more engine power. When the Mustang was first being dreamed up the design team was .....
given 5 goals to work off of. They were told it needed to have bucket seats, needed to seat four people, have a floor mounted shifter, weigh no more than 2,500 pounds and be no longer than 180 inches. They also wanted to offer multiple power, comfort, and luxury options. From there the Mustang was born and is without a doubt one of the most popular muscle cars ever created. This 1968 Convertible is a very nice car that has under gone a ground up restoration. The car was originally built in the Metuchen Assembly Plant with a build date of 07-24-1968. From there it was delivered to Oneill Ford in Greenvale, New York. It was purchased by its first owner just a short time later on 08-07-1968. It remained in New York until the 1st owner moved to Dallas, Texas in 1971. From there it sold to the second owner, also in Texas, in 1987 and that is where it has been ever since. Being a 2 owner car it is very cool that it is accompanied with a complete history. The car was originally Sea Foam Green but has been repainted with a Basecoat/Clearcoat Highland Green. This is paired with a Black power top that is in good shape. All of the original style chrome/stainless is in place and has a nice shine. The electrical is all working properly and it has its factory style grill mounted fog lights to each side of the Mustang in Corral emblem. It rides on a set of 15 inch American Racing Torq Thrust D wheels with Cooper Cobra Radial G/T tires.

Power is provided via the rebuilt 302 ci V8 motor under the hood. During the rebuild it received many upgrades including 351 heads, hypereutetic flat top pistons, Crane cam, Comp Cam Magnum rocker arms, an Edelbrock performer intake, Edelbrock 1406 carburetor, MSD distributor, MSD ignition, chrome air cleaner, and Mickey Thompson valve covers. The motor runs great and has plenty of power. Under the hood you will note the factory style export shock tower brace and Monte Carlo bar mounted in place. The car sounds great through the custom 3.5 inch exhaust into aluminized DynoMax mufflers. Backing up the motor is a smooth shifting automatic transmission and stock rear end. The suspension has been gone through and upgraded to KYB shocks with a 7/8 front and 3/4 rear sway bar. The car has power steering and power brakes which make it a great driver and Wilwood discs are found up front. Underneath the floors are all solid and rust free.

The interior is the stock Deluxe Black upholstery and the car was ordered with its factory center console. This console provides additional storage and houses the T-handle shifter. Where it meets the dash you will find the Custom Autosound radio that sounds great. The Select Air Conditioner blows cold through adjustable center and side vents. In front of the driver is the factory gauge cluster but an aftermarket Grant GT steering wheel has been added along with an added tachometer. The trunk is all finished out and offers plenty of storage space. The car comes with a Black parade boot for when the top is down, receipts, an original owners manual, and an original warranty facts booklet.

This cool classic Muscle Car is ready to find its 3rd owner. It has a lot of nice upgrades and is ready to go.
