Ford Mustang 289 V8 1968

Allmän beskrivning : Description
The recipe is simple: take one vintage Mustang, add a V8, fill it with accessories, then dress it in handsome blue paint. In reality, the application of the recipe is somewhat more challenging, but this 1968 Ford Mustang coupe absolutely nails it.
This pony isn't about investments and numbers-chasing, it's about traditional Mustang performance. 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 blue Mustang is arguably over-restored, since no 1968 Mustang ever had paint this shiny on the showroom floor, and it's quite fresh, having been completed in the not-too-distant past. Look closely and you'll be hard pressed to even find a few minor flaws, but I'm pleased to see that they let the original shape speak for itself, and it speaks beautifully. Gaps are excellent, the panels are straight, and there aren't many Americans who can't imagine themselves behind the wheel of this coupe. Chrome and stainless is quite good, giving this coupe a high-quality look that isn't just an illusion, with some parts, such as the door handles, likely being original. There's also a black vinyl top that helps dress it up a bit without removing that Mustang attitude, leaving us with one great-looking coupe.
The fairly stock look inside is a result of blending original and reproduction pieces seamlessly to give it a very inviting look. Most of the soft components are new, including the seat covers and carpets, while the door panels also appear to be recent and inserted into original door skins. You're going to love the center console, which houses the automatic shifter and the factory "garage door" storage area up front, adding a very sporty look, and there's a powerful AM/FM/CD stereo with speakers throughout the interior and a subwoofer in the trunk. This car originally had A/C, and the whole system has been upgraded with modern components, so it blows ice cold and remains easy to service. And one glance in the trunk is proof that this car has probably led an easy life, and the full-sized spare is just a good idea.
The VIN says this car should be carrying a 289 cubic inch V8, which is what currently lives under the hood. Equipped with a chrome dress-up kit, the car delivers on the performance promises made by the appealing blue paint. It's mostly stock, but the intake manifold is topped by an Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor instead of the original 2-barrel while the A/C system is entirely new and the structure is reinforced with an export brace and Monte Carlo bar. 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 power steering and power front disc brakes are always welcome features in an early Mustang. A mellow-sounding dual exhaust system gives it that traditional Mustang sound and the tub has been reinforced with a set of subframe connectors that make a notable difference. Period Torque Thrust wheels look right and carry fresh 225/60/14 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!

om Ford
Ford, som grundades 1902, har utan tvekan förändrat historien om bilvärlden mer än någon annan biltillverkare genom att införa de första folkbilen Modell T 1908. De hade producerat mer än 15 miljoner bilar i slutet av produktionen 1927, genom vilket T hade blivit föråldrade.

Ford lanserade den första lågpris V8-motor driven bil 1932. 1932 V8 var en omedelbar hit med överlägsen hantering och prestanda för många betydligt mer expansiva bilar av dagen. Inte undra på 32 V8 Ford har blivit en sådan favorit bland heta rodders runt om i världen med 32 Deuce Coupe som sin ikon.

Under kriget Ford helt stänga civil bilproduktionen att ägna alla sina resurser till de allierade krigsansträngningarna (1942-1945) De används för att bygga B-24 bombplan, flygmotorer, jeepar, M-4 stridsvagnar, militära lastbilar och Bren-gun bärare och mer än 30.000 super laddade Rolls Royce Merlin V-12 motorer till Mosquito och Lancaster bombplan samt P-51 Mustang fighters. Efter kriget Ford bilar i USA blev större och flashier tillsammans med sina konkurrenter. I 60: s Ford var tillbaka i förgrunden igen när man inför deras kommersiella hit Mustang 1964. Mustang var så populär tävlingen var tvungen att följa Fords exempel och ponycar fenomenet tog över USA. Under åren ponnyer växte några muskler tills oljekrisen döda äntligen dödat dem.

På sextiotalet rusade Ford i internationell motorsport scenen med en raseri. Efter misslyckade Ferrari övertagande, då Enzo Ferrari hade klippt affären av med Henry Ford II gör det senare absolut koka av vrede, vände Ford till Lola i Storbritannien för att producera en Ferrari slog långdistans racer efter. Samarbetet mellan Ford och Lola skapade den mäktiga Ford GT40 som absolut slog Ferrari i Le Mans 24 flera gånger.

I Europa införde Ford några av de mest episka race och rallybilar av 60-talet som bygger på ödmjuka familj sedaner; Cortina GT, Lotus Cortina, Escort Twin Cam, och Escort 1600RS med de ikoniska Cosworth BDA motorer.

Idag klassiska Fords är mycket populär bland entusiaster och ett stort urval av klassiska Fords finns till försäljning på www.ClassicDigest.com
