You are looking at one of the rarest Mustangs to ever come out of Dearborn Michigan. 1968 was the first time Ford ever stuffed the iconic 428 Cobra Jet into a Mustang. These cars were deemed 1968 ½ Mustangs because the R Code production cars didn’t start until April of 1968. They were very limited in production, especially the coupes with only 221 being produced. This R code coupe was built on May 27th, 1968 and sent to Crouse Ford Sales in Taneytown Maryland.
The car recently went through a nut and bolt restoration and was owned for 40 years by the previous owner. The car has its original owners manual showing the first purchasers name and address and date it was purchased. It’s a factory Candy Apple red with red interior 4 speed 4.30 traction-lok rear axle, making it a very special and rare example.
Now, about the car. This is one of the nicest running and driving Mustangs I’ve ever had and that’s saying a lot. The car fires right up, has great throttle response, great brakes, and more power than needed. The car has been through a nut and bolt restoration and it shows. The car is simply beautiful.
The car has all of its original VIN stamps and VIN tags. A Marti report verifying the car and a statistics report showing exactly how rare of a car this is. This is a truly a car that will stand tall in any collection.
So lets breakdown this car by area.
