This gorgeous 1968 Mustang coupe is proof that you don't need to spend a big pile of money to get a great-looking and driving early pony car. With a powerful 289 and an awesome color scheme, this is a fun and fast summertime cruiser that will serve you well for years to come.

Paint and bodywork have been freshened recently, and the metallic charcoal gray paint this car currently wears compliments the coupe body style extremely well. Done in two-stage urethane and perhaps using a modern Mustang color, it does nothing to diminish those timeless Mustang curves. The paint is much better than the original enamel, and there were no colors in the 1968 catalog that popped like this one does in the sunlight. Drive this one down the road and expect to have other motorists stopping you to ask, "What color is that?" It's truly striking. Chrome is bright, the stainless has been polished, and all the Mustang badges have been properly placed following the repaint. This is an upscale pony that looks like it should cost thousands more than it does.

Inside, a two-tone interior shows you why the Mustang was a perennial best-seller. Comfortable, stylish, and nicely finished, it's the perfect complement to the gorgeous exterior. The seats are obviously modern replacements, yet they work rather well in the vintage hardtop, particularly with the original rear bench upholstered to match. Custom door panels add a little bit of style without erasing the traditional Mustang look, and it includes a tilt column and a fat leather-wrapped Grant steering wheel to complete the look. The original AM radio has been replaced by a more recent Sony AM/FM/CD unit that fits into the original slot, so no cutting and it can be returned to original condition easily. Fresh carpets, a clean dash pad, and a new trunk mat all help give it a polished look that suggests nothing was overlooked during the build.

A familiar 289 cubic inch V8 still lives under the hood, and it has been suitably augmented to go with the general theme of the car. Cast aluminum valve covers have been added and feature a '60s black wrinkle finish, and a chrome air cleaner supplies the fresh air. An aluminum intake manifold with matching 4-barrel carburetor, a billet aluminum distributor, and a set of long-tube headers help the 289 act like a much bigger engine, and it looks quite correct with a coat of Ford Blue engine enamel. Better still, this Mustang is equipped with power steering and a C4 3-speed automatic transmission, so it can be as docile or as wild as you want. The chassis is probably original and looks like it's led a very good life someplace warm, as nothing's hiding under a layer of undercoating. The dual exhaust system features Flowmaster mufflers, so it has that distinctive sound and new suspension components up front make it feel pretty darned sharp for a 50-year-old car. Flashy 17-inch ION wheels give it a modern performance look and are fitted with fat 245/45/17 Falken performance radials.

With great performance, a killer engine note, and gorgeous, instantly-recognizable good looks, this '68 coupe puts you behind the wheel of a legend for not a lot of cash. Reliable, inexpensive to maintain and a lot of fun to drive, these make great toys that can be used like real cars. Call today!
