"The Ford Mustang was the brainchild of Lee Iacocca and was branded as the first 'Pony Car', borne out of a need to compete with the flood of European sportscars coming into the USA in the sixties. The first production Mustang rolled off the assembly line in Dearborn, Michigan on 9th March 1964 and was introduced to the public at the New York World's Fair on 17th April 1964. Legendary Texan racing driver, Carroll Shelby had been campaigning Ford Mustangs with considerable success in America, winning the SCCA’s production title three years running. Capitalising on his success, Shelby began manufacturing modified Mustangs, which were officially sanctioned by Ford and sold through selected dealerships. The first Shelby Mustang, the GT350, arrived in 1965 powered by a modified version of the Ford’s 289ci, small block, V8 engine with a four-speed Borg Warner manual gearbox.
This lovely 1968 Ford Mustang Fastback was import from Europe by a Swedish gentleman who had properties in both Sweden and the UK. Purchased by the current owner in 2021 and placed in his collection of American muscle cars, he only registered the car in the UK in June of this year. At some time, this Mustang has been gone through and up rated with a later 390GT big block V8 engine married to an automatic gearbox. Finished in silver with a burgundy interior, this very good Mustang Fastback is supplied with a V5C registration document, an MoT test certificate which expires in August 2024 and two sets of keys. This is a very useable Ford Mustang Fastback and is an ideal candidate for the possibility being rebuilt as a ‘Eleanor’ from the film ‘Gone in 60 Seconds’ or as a Steve McQueen ‘Bullitt’ recreation.
