NEW RAVEN BLACK PAINT, BUILT 302, 4-WHL DISC BRAKES, AUTO, 18" WHEELS, PS, NICE

There's something to be said for owning a classic car that you can enjoy daily if you so choose. And as we see a younger generation start to show interest in the muscle and pony cars of old, here at Shelton Classics and Performance we have started to notice a trend from buyers of both young and old. Lately, an increasing number of buyers are specifically hunting a great looking car that is a blast to drive, has plenty of power on tap, and has a timeless look. They don't want a trailer queen, they aren't concerned with numbers matching, and more often than not, the importance isn't necessarily present or future collectability, but instead only one thing matters... How does it drive?! Which brings us to this absolutely gorgeous '68 Mustang convertible.

This Mustang is a fully-sorted weekend cruiser that is perfect to show off at the local cruise in or car show, but trust us you wont want to leave it parked there for long. 5-minutes behind the wheel, and you'll appreciate this car on a whole new level. Today this convertible sits in one of the best Mustang colors of all time - Raven Black. Fully painted in March of 2018, that body is nearly laser straight and was buffed and wetsanded to a near perfect mirror like finish. The blueish silver pinstripe down the body is a great addition that ties into the interior nicely. Inside you'll find a very clean and tidy standard bucket seat interior that shows little to no wear. The blue bucket seats are in great shape and the black carpet ties in very nicely to the outside.

Pop open the hood and you'll find a fully detailed engine bay that houses a 302ci V8 that has been outfitted with a Edelbrock 4-bbl carburetor, Edelbrock performer intake and chrome valve covers. The engine also has more tasteful upgrades like, HEI distributor, power steering and if you look closely you'll see the 4-wheel disc brakes that help ensure its ready for a simple 10-minute drive up the block or a 250 mile drive to a show.

Underneath shows well, you'll notice that some one has replaced sections of the floor but all were done very cleanly. We've seen undersides cleaner, but this car is meant to be driven and enjoyed, so you wouldn't want it show worthy. You'll also see the Ford 8.8" Rear End with a highway friendly rear gear stuffed in it, dual exhausts outfitted with Flowmaster Mufflers and electric cutouts. and new shocks at all four corners. At the corners you'll see the 18" Vision wheels that show off the 4-wheel drilled and slotted rotors very nicely.

If you are in the market for an incredible pony car that is certain to become the envy of everyone you know, then this is it! We've seen a lot of mustangs come through here in various stages of condition, but if you are hunting a toy you can enjoy and actually put on the street, but don't want to shell out $50k for a trailer queen, then you would be hardpressed to find a nicer Mustang than this!
