Top down fun in the sun, this stunning ‘Sunlit Gold' Mustang is ready to cruise in style.

 

Synonymous with starting the age of the ‘pony' car, Ford's vice president and general manager Lee Lacocca envisioned a sporty youth-market car based on the existing compact Ford Falcon base. The Mustang was developed in record time on a shoe-string budget and was presented to the public at the World's Fair on the 17th of April 1964 to much amazement and acclaim. Though Ford had planned 100,000 sales in the first year, over 22,000 orders had been placed on the first day! Ford had unknowingly started the Pony car craze.

 

The Mustang was initially introduced as a coupe and convertible with either a 170ci straight six, 260ci 2v, V8 and 289ci 4v, V8 and a solid lifter 271hp 289ci 4-barrel staring in June 1964. For the 1965 model year the fastback was introduced along with the enlarged 200ci straight six base engine and 289ci 2v, V8 replacing the 260ci V8 engine. The Mustang also came with a myriad of optional extras furthering its appeal to a broad marketplace from entry level grocery getters to all out-performance monsters. On the 1st March 1966, the one millionth Mustang rolled off the production line.

 

Incremental updates followed until the first major styling revision in 1967 with the length and width increased by 2.7" and 0.5" respectively; primarily to accommodate the new, larger 390ci big block V8 with 335hp to be the Mustang's top performing engine. 1968 saw subtle refinements to the exterior and interior such as deletion of the F-O-R-D letters on the hood, added safety features and folding flush interior door handles to name a few. Engine wise, the new 302ci V8 replaced the venerable 289 during that year while performance engines were added to the line up in the form of the 428 Cobra Jet and 427 Hipo V8 making far more than their official ratings.

 

This gorgeous C code Mustang is one of the last 289ci V8 Mustangs that was built in April 1968 and finished in Sunlit Gold with Parchment interior. It was optioned with white power top, C-4 Automatic transmission, white wall tires, louvered hood, power steering, AM radio and deluxe wheel overs costing a total of $3612.28 inclusive of shipping and charges according to the build sheet back in 1968! The mustang has remained is overall good condition for its age with a good shine on the paint work and interior looking in good largely original shape besides the added head rests, leather wrapped steering wheel and aftermarket head unit in the glove box. A bump on the rear bumper bar is the only real imperfection on the car. The vehicle rides on a set of 17 inch American Racing style rims which compliments the Mustangs tougher look with the white C stripe and louvered bonnet. Under the bonnet lies the 289ci 2v V8 giving plenty of effortless cruising power. Documentation shows it to be imported to Australia in early 2014.

 

Included with the Mustang is a file of miscellaneous paperwork dating back to 1976, Marti report, original 1968 Mustang sales brochure, 68 Mustang Facts book, original ‘Big 4' “SEND HELP/NEED GAS” document and a framed copy of the Marti report along with an original build costings sheet.

 

Great for those weekend getaways or Sunday cruises, this Mustang will surely impress.

 

This vehicle comes with RWC if sold in QLD.
