1968 Mustang Fastback
Numbers Matching J-Code
Gorgeous Factory Sunlit Gold
Original Black Bucket Seat Interior
Excellent Running 302 4V Engine
Blah, blah, blah. Everyone with a pulse knows Mustang Fastbacks are a hard to find commodity. When you do they are typically over-restored or completely resto-mod'd with a price that'll make your eyes water. Trying to find one you can actually afford and occasionally park without an armed guard isn't easy.
Sunlit Gold just works on this car. The more you see it, the more you like it. Kind of a Yukon Cornelius deal. Obviously the paint isn't perfect but the car presents well. There is some of the typical corner bubbling but the body is quite solid and doesn't show any obvious signs of prior collision. The panels line up well and the car just looks good. Bright trim is all in order as well. The trunk lid has the typical fastback lower rust but a nice original trunk lid that has been sandblasted is included. The floors do have some localized rust in the driver rear & passenger front corners, both easily done as there is no torque box or frame rail involvement. The frame rails and torque boxes are very nice on this car.
Inside it appears the original interior is still in place. The seats have seam separations but the frames & buns still look good. The instrument bezels are all aged but new units are available, inexpensive and relatively easy to install. The interior in this car could easily be enjoyed as is or restored without spending a king's ransom.
Under the hood, the original 'born-with' numbers matching engine is still in place and runs excellent. This is the desirable 230 horsepower 'J' code high compression 302. It fires up easily and sounds great too. Out on the road it has plenty of power. The C4 transmission works nicely as well.
