Description : Gateway Classic Cars Houston Showroom is proud to present this sweet 1968 Ford Mustang. This pony is rocking a bright red paint job, and a jet-black interior, so it's a real eye catcher. The potent 302 CID V8 in the engine bay has been upgraded with an Edelbrock 4BBL carb atop its aluminum intake, and a GM-Style HEI provides improved spark vs. the original ignition setup. Headers funnel exhaust gases into its true dual exhaust, which provides that classic muscle car sound. Backing the 302 is a 3-speed automatic transmission, which sends the twist to the Ford 9-inch rear. Front disc brakes have been added, which helps slow this peppy Mustang down better than its original 4-drum setup. This little 'Stang is riding on polished chrome aluminum wheels, which are wrapped with low profile performance radials, which further ride and driver control. Inside, the first thing you'll notice is the high back synthetic leather buckets with their red stitching (to complement the red exterior). Between the well-bolstered front buckets and their Aces Racing 4-point harnesses, you'll get quite the "competition feel" when you're strapped in up front. A custom center console has been added as well (after all, in 1968, no one was toting their Super Big Gulps along), but these days, "ya gotta have cupholders"! The rear bench was also recovered in matching, red-stitched black synthetic leather, to maintain a consistent scheme. Occupants will appreciate the addition of the Vintage Air A/C (uses R134a refrigerant), and they'll also get a "kick" out of the sound system, with its new retro-style head unit and its triple 10-inch subwoofer enclosure in the trunk. Two amps power the system, so it can really rattle your teeth if you want! The trunk also features a custom, twin piston power open/closing system, which is something one doesn't see every day. Other recent updates include new halo headlights, a new wiring harness, anti-theft system, new starter, alternator, and weather stripping all around. This bright red '68 Mustang is ready to hit the highway with its new owner, so call or email our Houston Showroom today to make it yours!

About Ford
Ford, founded in 1902, has arguably changed the history of automotive world more than any other car manufacturer by introducing the first people's car Model T in 1908. They had produced more than 15 million cars by the end of the production in 1927, by which T had become obsolete.

Ford launched the first low priced V8 engine powered car in 1932. 1932 V8 was an instant hit with superior handling and performance to many far more expansive cars of the day. No wonder 32 V8 Ford has become such a favourite among hot rodders around the world with 32 Deuce coupe as their icon.

During the war Ford completely shut down civilian vehicle production to dedicate all its resources to the Allied war efforts (1942-45) They used to build B-24 bombers, aircraft engines, jeeps, M-4 tanks, military trucks and Bren-gun carriers and more than 30,000 super-charged Rolls Royce Merlin V-12 engines for Mosquito and Lancaster bombers as well as P-51 Mustang fighters. After the war Ford cars in the USA got bigger and flashier along with their competitors. In the 60's Ford was back in the forefront again when introducing their commercial hit Mustang in 1964. Mustang was so popular the competition had to follow Ford's example and the ponycar phenomenon took over the US. Over the years the ponies grew some muscles until the oil crisis kill finally killed them off.

In the sixties Ford rushed into international motor sports scene with a fury. After unsuccessful Ferrari takeover, when Enzo Ferrari had cut the deal off with Henry Ford II making the latter absolutely boil with fury, Ford turned to Lola in UK to produce a Ferrari beating long distance racer after. The collaboration between Ford and Lola created the mighty Ford GT40 that absolutely beat Ferrari in Le Mans 24 numerous times.

In Europe, Ford introduced some of the most epic race and rally cars of the 60's based on humble family sedans; Cortina GT, Lotus Cortina, Escort Twin Cam, and Escort 1600RS with the iconic Cosworth BDA engines.

Today classic Fords are extremely popular with enthusiasts and a great selection of classic Fords can be found for sale at
