1968 FORD MUSTANG GT 390
1968 FORD MUSTANG GT S code 390ci.
This is a very nice and solid 1968 Ford Mustang GT 390 BBF that has not been on the market before.
It was ordered on August 7, 1967. It was built December 8, 1967 at Metuchen. It is a 1968 Ford Mustang that came equipped with the GT equipment group, a console, power disk brakes, power steering, AM/8 track stereo system, F70X14 white oval white sidewall nylon tires, Chrome styled GT wheels, 390-4v V8 engine, Highland Green paint, Saddle vinyl bucket seats and a C-6 automatic transmission. All of this and more is verified by the Marti Report.
This is believed to be a two owner car and the original owner changed the original C6 automatic out and installed the 4 speed manual transmission back while the car was new. It appears as it came original with the 4 speed so it was done very nice back when all the parts was readily available (according to second owner it was done at the Ford dealership when car was purchased new). It does not have its original radio and the original tires are also long gone. The second owner changed the rear end chunk for a better road gear but I do have the original for the car. The second owner also had the interior redone and had it painted. So it does have 1 repaint. The second owner maintained this car very well and it has never been restored but always maintained.
This Mustang GT has a very solid body on her. The frame rails, shock towers and torque boxes as well as the rest of the underside is in very good condition. The paint is within a few years old and is very good condition. The only noticeable flaw in the paint is on both sides above the rear quarters next to rear side glass. These flaws will not show in pictures. Other than that the paint is very good and shines and presents the car very well. All of the chrome and stainless is also in very good condition. The original GT wheels are in good condition.
The car starts and drives absolutely great. Its 390 V8 engine and the 4 speed manual transmission makes this little car a screamer. The engine sounds good as does the duel exhaust. The 4 speed transmission shifts out great and this car is fun and a pleasure to drive.
The interior is in like new condition and looks very good. All of the window glass is in good condition and all of the side windows operate as they should. I have found that everything operates as it should and this Mustang GT is just a great little car.
Here is the story as it was told to me from the second owner which bought the Mustang from the original owner. He purchased this car from the gentleman who bought the car new from Jennings Ford in NJ. The original owner decided early on that he wanted a 4 speed instead of the automatic, so he had it changed(by the Ford Dealership) . When the second owner purchased the car he could have purchased the original transmission but at that time he did not feel that it was worth it so he passed. Remember this was before these GT Mustangs became such a sought after car as they are now. The second owner bought this car some 14 years ago. It has never been anyone’s daily driver but just a pleasure toy.
This is a very nice, clean and solid 1968 Mustang GT S code that isn’t the only one left but you don’t meet another coming down the road to often.
If I can be of further assistance don’t hesitate to give me a call to discuss it in person.
