Description for Ford Mustang 1968

You've always wanted a Mustang, but by the time you were old enough to afford one, they were all priced out of reach. Well, guess again, because this tropical-looking 1968 Mustang convertible hits all the right notes and still captures the feel of the '60s, making it the perfect choice for a little time travel.
The good news is that this Mustang packs a V8 and it makes for a very pleasant, low-stress cruiser. The fire-breathing big block muscle that we expect today is a legend created by a select few, while a great majority of Mustang buyers were perfectly content to motor around in cars just like this one. With a bright Tahoe Turquoise paint job, it sure looks the part of first-class summertime fun, but it hasn't been over-restored, modified, or converted to some kind of tribute to something it never was in the first place. The bodywork and paint are very good even though they're almost 23 years old, and the overall effect is quite pleasing, making this a great car to drive to work on nice days. As a lifetime California car, you know there's nothing nasty hiding underneath and it shows in the durability of the bare-metal respray. You'll also be pleased to show this one off, because the chrome is good, all the badges are intact, and the look is timeless, so you need to do exactly nothing to get it ready to cruise.
The beautiful Palomino interior looks quite correct and in good condition, and you'll appreciate it the moment you put the top down in the sun. The pleated seats look like they have been cared for over the past four-and-a-half decades with only some modest stretching on the driver's seat to give away the illusion. Despite being one of the most accessory-friendly cars of all time, the interior is remarkably stock, including some very nice door panels, recent black carpets, and a very cool wood-rimmed steering wheel that looks like it belongs in a much more expensive car. Even the non-GT models got a pretty complete array of gauges, all of which are in original condition with clear lenses and bright markings. An aftermarket center console adds some utility and the stereo is an upgraded AM/FM/cassette unit that's a welcome choice. A trim-fitting black power convertible top fits neatly under a matching Palomino boot, making this a handsome car, top up or top down.
For years, the 289 cubic inch V8 was the Mustang's most popular choice, and with today's $3.00/gallon gas, perhaps it's time to re-visit the small block pony car. This same engine worked well in Ford performance cars as well as Shelbys, and it's peppy around town with a nice grumble to the exhaust. It looks fantastic with Ford Blue paint and finned valve covers, and with a 4-barrel carburetor, it earned the hi-performance sticker honestly. It also includes power steering, a valuable addition to the roster, and a rumbling dual exhaust strikes just the right note. The C4 automatic feeds a set of highway-friendly gears, and without a big block V8 up front, the ride is comfortable and braking secure. You can see just how clean this car really is by glancing underneath, where signs of its California heritage are evident everywhere you look. Traditional Torque Thrust wheels are a great choice and carry 205/70/14 BFGoodrich T/A radials all around.
Top-down fun is what the Mustang is all about, and with long-term ownership, a great V8, and wonderful colors, it's the right place to spend your summer. Call today!
