Ford Mustang 1968

General description : 1968 Mustang Longhorn Shelby Custom Poll every classic car enthusiast out there about their favorite classic ever made and you can bet Mustang will be high on this list.  The true American muscle car has a huge following with various car clubs and car shows being dedicated to them alone.  However, with all those Mustangs when is the last time you saw one you could say is custom?  They has a great look from the factory but the 1968 Mustang Coupe you see here has some custom accents that really set it apart.  In a field of Mustangs we can guarantee this one would draw a crowd just because it is unique.  The body is coated in a custom burnt Orange Metallic that is packed with pearl.  It has a beautiful shine and really pops out in the sun.  The car was once used as a promo vehicle for Texas University so the classic Shelby side stripe has been painted in white with a custom Longhorn.  A newer Shelby style hood is in place and along with the 1 piece rear deck spoiler give it some very cool body lines.  Front fog lights as well as a front apron are also Shelby style components in place.  All of the chrome is in very nice condition with cleanly mounted front and rear bumpers.  The glass is all nice and clear with nice stainless throughout.  In the rear you will find the taillights have been totally customized.  The original style 3 lens taillights have been duplicated creating 6 lenses for each light.  All of the lights work and look awesome to each side of the aftermarket billet gas cap.  American racing torque thrust wheels sit underneath each corner and the tires have plenty of tread. The customizations don't stop with the exterior as the drivetrain has been entirely updated.  A 302 5.0 HO motor along with the transmission was taken from an aftermarket Thunderbird and put in place.  The cover has been painted to match the exterior and has 5.0 Ford HO engraved on the top aluminum panel.  The motor starts up well and runs with no issues.  The brake, steering, and suspension system are all in good condition and operate as they should.    The interior has the original style Mustang look but has been customized as well.  The seats are done in a two tone White and Black with the center Black sections being a diamond tuck style.  The seats are very comfortable and the car allows plenty of leg room up front and for the back passengers.  Along with the drivetrain came a later model T handle shifter that you will find cleanly mounted to the floor board.  The dash has all of the vintage style woodgrain paneling but instead of the boring original gauges you will see a nice Dakota Digital system staring back at you.  Everything illuminates blue and looks great being mounted in the original bezel.  Also important to note is the Carroll Shelby signature found on the passengers side dash.  A wood grain steering wheel is in place which any Mustang enthusiast will tell you is a tough find, especially in good condition. This is one cool classic that continues to be popular at every show it goes to! Park this custom Mustang in your garage for the reduced price of $54,500.00 $45,000.00!

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 www.ClassicDigest.com
