What could be more fun than a clean 1968 Mustang coupe with a classic silver paint job and a sweet-running 302 under the hood? Nicely built and clean from top to bottom, this Mustang has been built as an all-around performer that you can be proud to show at the local cruise nights. There really isn't much you can do to an early Mustang to improve its looks, so the fellow who built this one focused on getting it straight instead. Two-stage urethane creates the shine, and the paint is a refreshing change from all the bright red and black Mustangs you usually see at car shows. It also works really well with the slightly more formal coupe body, especially with the top painted gloss black, which is a cool twist on the standard vinyl top look. A Mach I style hood scoop was installed and painted to match the top, while the original grille has been upgraded to a billet piece that really cleans up the front end. Chrome bumpers have been retained front and rear, as well as all the original Mustang emblems. The car's black interior looks ready to race, thanks to a set of aggressive adjustable bucket seats. Forget the slippery stools that came in the car originally, these deeply sculpted thrones are amazingly comfortable and really hold you in place, especially with the 4-point harnesses that have been fitted in place of the original lap belts. The floor is covered with original-style carpet, and the door panels have been painted to match the body with black inserts. A fat Grant steering wheel takes the place of the skinny original piece, but the original gauges survived the transformation fully intact. Entertainment is compliments of a Kenwood AM/FM/CD stereo system with a remote that has been nestled into the original radio's spot in the dash and drives new speakers located throughout the interior. As I mentioned, power comes from a rebuilt 302 cubic inch V8 that has been augmented with parts like an Edelbrock intake and 4-barrel carburetor, as well as an upgraded cam that gives it a very healthy-sounding idle. The engine bay is simple, bathed in matching silver paint instead of satin black, and it makes for a great background for the black engine block. Edelbrock also contributed a set of cast aluminum rocker covers and a matching air cleaner, creating a clean, simple look that works well with the car's race-inspired personality. Long-tube headers feed a 2.5-inch dual exhaust system, and the 3-speed automatic transmission was rebuilt less than 1000 miles ago. Wheels are polished pro-star style aluminum pieces from Jegs wearing appropriately staggered 195/60/15 front and 275/60/15 rear BFGoodrich T/A radials. Great Mustangs are still out there, and many of them are still very reasonably priced. This one has already had a lot of attention and effort lavished upon it, and it shows. With an elegant paint job, that awesome interior, and a nice-running small block under the hood, it's the kind of fun car that populates most local shows and cruise nights. The hardware is quick, the combination was perfected decades ago, and the look of an early Mustang just can't be ignored. Give us a call today! This vehicle is located in our Atlanta showroom.
