The Mustang received its first major redesign for the 1967 model year which included a larger overall design to accommodate big-block V8 engines. Additionally, the high-performance 289 option was replaced by the newer 390 c.i. version from the Ford Thunderbird. This 1968 S-Code fastback comes finished in Gunmetal Grey over a Deluxe black leather interior. Acquired by the seller 22 years ago, it has since undergone a decade-long full nut and bolt restoration including many desirable upgrades. It features a rebuilt 390 c.i. V8 engine paired with a Tremec 5-speed manual transmission, a 9” Currie rear end, coilover suspension, a modern aluminum radiator, modern air conditioning, power rack and pinion steering, a custom interior, and more. It is now being offered for auction by its seller out of Utah having been driven under 2k miles since the restoration.
For the 1967 visual rework, the Mustang received larger overall dimensions, concave taillights, side scoops, chrome side ornamentation, square rear-view mirrors, a new gas cap, and wheel options. This example was originally finished in Wimbledon White and during its restoration, it was media blasted on a rotisserie, rust was corrected and it was refinished in Gunmetal Grey. The seller states that the finish shows a few minor imperfections from normal road use and has provided a collection of images that can be found in the gallery. Details include black rocker-panel stripes, chrome-finished bumpers, GT badging, dual exhaust outlets, and a set of 17” Halibrand-style American Racing wheels. The wheels are dressed in a set of Cooper Zeon RS3-R tires.
The cabin has been fitted with front seats sourced from a 1970 Mach 1 upgraded with a TMI bolstering kit and custom upholstered in Deluxe black leather. Black carpets line the floors and aluminum trim accents the center console, door panels, and dashboard. Details include a center console, a modern air conditioning system, a tilt steering column, roll-up windows, and an upgraded sound system with a vintage-style radio head unit and hidden speakers. The windshield was recently removed and reinstalled for an improved seal and a new chrome kit has yet to be installed. The seller confirms that all gauges, electronics, and accessories remain functional.
Power comes from a 6.4L 390 c.i. V8 engine which produced up to 320 HP and 427 lb-ft of torque when new. The engine was rebuilt during the restoration and has been fitted with an aluminum intake manifold, modern fuel injection, all-new internals, an aluminum radiator, a new engine management system, and a custom exhaust system. The rear wheels are driven by way of an upgraded 5-speed Tremec transmission and a 9” Currie rear with 3.89 gears. The suspension has been upgraded with coil overs from Total Control Products while stopping power comes from upgraded modern power disc brakes. The steering was upgraded with a power rack and pinion system from Flaming River. The seller notes that the car has received annual service since the completion of its restoration.
This sale will include two keys and a clean title.
