Classic Car- 1968 Ford Mustang Fastback


Cars today just don’t have any style. They have no vintage feel to them what soever. I understand the need to make them small, and have great gas mileage but still I’d drive a 1968 Ford Mustang every day of the week if I could. Let’s take a look at our Classic Car of the day the 1968 Ford Mustang Fastback.

In 1968, Ford used the same body style as the 67 Mustang but with a few minor changes. The Mustang emblem was in the middle of the grille, and the air scoop on the side had a cleaner look to it due to the absence of the horizontal stripes. It’s by far one of the best looking Mustang’s you’ll ever see.

The 428 Cobra Jet was offered in Fords Mustang fastbacks and coupes and in Torino and Mercury Cougar and Cyclone models. Hooked up with a four-speed manual or three-speed automatic transmission. All 1968 Ford Mustang 428 Cobra Jets had heavier-duty front shock towers. The mighty 1968 Ford 428 Cobra Jet was introduced on April 1, 1968. Rated at 335hp with actual hp around 410. Built with the 428 cid big-car engine, but produced with larger-valve heads and the race-brewed 427’s intake manifold. Also optioned with ram-air induction and a functional hood scoop that was mated to a special air cleaner with a vacuum-actuated butterfly valve that funneled air directly into the 735-cfm Holley 4bbl carburetor.”

The Fastback gained culture status in 1968’s blockbuster thriller Bullitt. In the movie, Lt. Frank Bullitt drove a Highland Green 1968 Mustang GT fastback to chase two hit men in a black 1968 Dodge Charger. Check out that famous race scene here.
