1968 Ford Mustang Proves Not Even Years of Sitting Makes a Legend Less Cool.
The grocery-getter Mustang was therefore offered with a 200 (3.3-liter) Thriftpower developing 115 horsepower, down from 115 horsepower a year before.
When it comes to V8s, new this year was the 302 (4.9-liter) small-block installed on F-code Mustangs. Available with either a 2-barrel or a 4-barrel configuration, this new V8 produced 210 and 230 horsepower, respectively.
The 289 (4.7-liter) continued to be offered as well, once again in 2-barrel and 4-barrel versions.
However, buyers of the 1968 Mustang could go for two more powerful options, including not only the 390 (6.4-liter) also available in 1967 (new this year was a 2-barrel version of the same unit) but also the 428 (7.0-liter) Cobra Jet with 335 horsepower.
This Mustang is back after many years of sitting, and eBay seller oldmanclassicmustangsintexas says the vehicle starts, runs, and drives just nicely.
Since it’s a C-code Ford Mustang, the car left the factory with a 289 under the hood, but now the power surprisingly comes from a 351 (5.7-liter) paired with an automatic transmission.
Based on the provided photos, the Mustang looks amazing, even after a long time on the side of the road.
It’s not a perfect 10, there’s no doubt about it, but if you’re interested in a daily driver that exhibits the original coolness, this one right here is definitely worth checking out.
Of course, all of these mean the car can’t come cheap.
