Classic Car Overview

1968 Ford Mustang Convertible A marriage made in heaven with Gulfstream Aqua on the exterior, a snazzy 2 tone aqua interior, and a black canvas convertible top. Purchased by our consignor, the 3rd owner in 2003, and barely driven 500 miles during his ownership, the body being restored during this time, and the floorboards being treated to rust remediation then the interior being treated to an update with new carpeting, door panels, window seals and new bezels, this all leaves me whispering I do, I do...really love this car! Exterior Bathed in a very nicely applied Gulfstream Aqua, straight steel abounds. Gaps are consistent and straight and only some minor scratches and chips are noted in the finish. The iconic hockey stick cove is present in the rear quarters and it flows into the doors. From the front bumper, deeply inset grille, galloping horse, and side trimmings as well as rocker trim, all of the chrome is very nice with no dimpling or dulling. For 1968 styling stayed slightly more aggressive than seen on the prior years with a simple grille and deeper headlights, and on the back the former outward V shaped sergeant stripe tail lights have now been inverted to inward, but still using 6 individual lights. Really, the largest difference between this year and the prior is the addition of side marker lighting. The original wheels have been retained and show with chrome wire spoke covers and faux knock offs all wrapped in nearly new 19575R14 deeply treaded thin whitewall rubber. A black power actuated canvas top in near showroom condition with a glass rear window is the dollop of whipped cream on top if you will. Interior The lowering of the ceremonial convertible, (a rite of summer here in our Hallowed Halls), and we see 2 tone aqua vinyl that is all in excellent condition. The door panels are light aqua painted uppers and lowers, and vinyl covered dark aqua new panels in the middle with just a touch of chrome trim surround make things just perfect. The front buckets continue with dark aqua kiwi vinyl vertically stitched inner panels, and smooth crinkle light aqua bolsters. This continues into the back seat bench as well. The buckets flank the carpeted hump with the chrome T handle shift lever dead center and within the drivers reach. A dual squared off eyebrow design is reserved for the dash top and this plays in black and is above some aqua for the painted metal on the bottom of the dash. We can note the original instrument cluster with new bezels and the original collapsible column padded steering wheel is fronting it all. Aqua carpet is in good condition, because it is nearly new, flooding all the floors. Aqua carpeted floor mats protect the carpet and looking way back into the trunk we see very good condition OEM square plaid vinyl lining throughout as well as the jack and tool bag and spare tire cover, all looking like new. Drivetrain The correct 289ci V8 resides within the original and well restored engine bay. A blue block and cylinder heads support the 2-barrel carb on top and then the icing on the cake is the factory correct Ford Blue air cleaner assembly. On the back is a C4 3-speed automatic and putting power to the ground is a Ford 8 2.79 geared axle assembly. Undercarriage A well restored and used undercarriage presents with no invasive rust and only minor surface rust and patina on the suspension components, unibody and flooring. Drum brakes are seen all around, and single exhaust sends spent fossils through a stock style muffle to announce the V8s melody. All good down below with independent coil spring suspension up front and leaf springs out back. Drivability Twas a nice day indeed, so we put the top down while me and my cohort went for a jaunt. We found this car to run well, handle nicely, shift smoothly, and corner with ease. We noted all functions save for the brake lights not lighting, the high beam switch being stuck, and the right rear window regulator not working were...well...functional! An older example still maintaining its luster, sporty interior, and smooth-running power plant. Very nice paint, clean tear free power operating convertible top, sporty wheels, and shiny chrome and trim. I feel we will be together at least until death do us part. 8F03C191242 8-1968 F-Dearborn, MI Assy Plant 03-Mustang Convertible C-289ci V8 2bbl 191242-Sequential Unit Number WARRANTY TAG BODY 76A-Mustang Convertible Standard Buckets COLOR F-Gulfstream Aqua TRIM 2K-Light Aqua Crinkle Vinyl, Dark Aqua Kiwi Vinyl DATE 09E-May 9th DSO 37-Buffalo AXLE 2-Ford 8 2.79 Conventional TRANS W-C4 Automatic Classic Auto Mall is a 336,000-square foot classic and special interest automobile showroom, featuring over 850 vehicles for sale with showroom space for up to 1,000 vehicles.
