1968 Ford Mustang Convertible

Title: 1968 Mustang Convertible Show Car
Mileage: 71,000 miles
Location: Clinton Corners, NY

This is a '68 Mustang convertible. I have owned it for 5 years. I purchased her from a retired Ford employee in the Chicago area, who owned it for over 25 years.
She is now a freshly detailed trophy winning show car, ready for you to enjoy. The car has just won 2nd place at the first show entered into this season, having 14 67/68 Mustangs in the class! She is also used in a feature film called "Taking Woodstock". The film will be released in August '09. The movie is about the Woodstock concert in 1969. The car was also used in a Mastercuts hair salon poster ad last summer.
Now about the car. She has a number of options including: Power steering, Power top, Turn signal hood, Automatic transmission, Console, Luggage rack, Factory Chrome wheels, Wheel lip moldings, and Fog lights. The previous owner installed a period correct cruise control unit, and it works. The drivetrain is original and has only 71,000 miles. She has a "C" code 289 2 bbl that runs well, and drives comfortably. It doesn't smoke, and runs cool in the summer. I replaced the shocks and springs so that there will be a better ride.
The paint is the original color of Brittany Blue and looks great, but is older. There is a minor scratch or two that have been touched up. Overall, it shows very well. The body panels and floors are original to the car. There is a small amount of undercoating on the floors, but you can see the quality of the whole car in the photo's. I can take other photo's if needed.
All of the chrome is in great shape. Anything that was not show quality was replaced.
The 2 tone Blue interior is in new condition, with new carpet and new floor mats. The seat covers have no rips or wear. The insides of the doors and the rear seat trim is freshly painted. The power top works as it should and the rear window is clear.
