1968 Ford Mustang
FRESH 302CI V8, NEW CANDY APPLE RED PAINT, POWER 4-WHL DISCS, PS, AUTO, CRUISER!
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, feels great on the open road, but has more personality thanks to 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 1968 Ford 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 - Candy Apple Red. Fully painted in January of 2019, the body is straight and shows a mirror like finish. Inside you'll find a very clean and tidy standard black bucket seat interior that shows very well. The black bucket seats are in great shape and features new carpet as well as a brand new power soft top was installed with a glass back window in February of 2019.
Pop open the hood and you'll find a fully detailed engine bay that houses a fresh 302ci V8 that has been outfitted with a Edelbrock 4-bbl carburetor, Edelbrock performer intake, chrome Ford Racing valve covers and Power Steering. The engine also has more tasteful upgrades like a MSD distributor and coil, and if you look closely you'll see the 4-wheel power 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 of the car shows a few panels have been replaced on the floor. We've seen undersides cleaner, but this car is meant to be driven and enjoyed, so you wouldn't want it show worthy. More importantly, the front end features new lower control arms, new poly eurethane bushings throughout and a new front sway bar. You'll also see the Ford 8.8" Rear End, dual exhausts, and air shocks equipped in the rear. At the corners you'll see the new 17" US Mag 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!
