1968 Ford Mustang Convertible
The Ford Mustang was conceived in the full knowledge that in the mid 1960s the biggest population bubble in history was now coming of age in America, ‘baby boomers' would rule the '60s and there was little or no reason to think that they wanted to drive cars that were anything like the ones their parents owned.The dramatic new Ford Mustang, therefore, created a storm when it hit the streets and it still does to this day. Ford wanted to make the Mustang affordable, and consequently, it needed to share much of its engineering with an existing Ford product, so it made sense to use the Falcon as it was their smallest model at the time and its floor pan and drivetrain had only recently been designed saving considerably on 'tooling' costs.The Mustang was initially offered as either a ‘Notchback' Coupé or a Convertible with the 'Fastback' appearing later. It shared its front double-wishbone/coil spring and leaf spring rear suspension with the Falcon but compared to the saloon the cockpit sat further back on the chassis, resulting in a longer front and shorter rear end design and both its roof and bonnet were also lower in comparison. Those proportions somehow just worked, and with a full complement of new styling details such as the galloping horse in the grille, the cut-away side sections, the 3-section rear lights and that 'get outta my way' front end, everyone wanted one.
Presented here is a left-hand drive, 1968 Ford Mustang Convertible finished in Silver with Black rally stripes and a black interior. The look of this car very much reflects and is evocative of the much celebrated Shelby GT350 from the same era, with extra lights in the grille, air scoops on the sides and decals on the lower front wings. The engine in the car is thought to have come from a 90's Mustang and is a 4.95-litre Ford V8 unit mated to an automatic transmission. This car has an unusual removable fibreglass hardtop which is easy to attach, offering the best of both worlds as a coupé or a convertible. A Pioneer audio system complete with speakers in the boot, will ensure you can listen to all your favourite tunes whilst cruising in this 'Pony'.
Imported to the UK in 2015 by our vendor, he has really enjoyed driving this well-presented, head-turning, sixties Mustang, but other projects in the garage now take precedence and this distinctive Mustang is now offered for sale. Supplied with a UK V5c this car is now ready to be enjoyed by its next owner and looks appealing at today's guide price.
