LMC is very proud to offer for sale this 1968 Ford Mustang 428 Cobra Jet.

In 1968 Ford introduced an engine option for the Mustang that would be able to compete or even beat the stiff competition being put up on the streets by the Camaro, Firebird, Darts, and Cudas. The 427 V8, Ford’s near race ready engine which they would tune down to 390HP, was originally selected to be engine of choice but the high cost and slim availability made it struggle for success. Mid-year Ford would change the engine of choice to the 428 Cobra Jet that put out an estimated 410HP. With this bigger engine came many other performance upgrades. Many Blue Oval enthusiasts would claim that the Mustang 428 CJ was the quickest car of the muscle car era.

This 1968 Ford Mustang was built at the Dearborn Assembly Plant on June, 7th, 1968 and was delivered to Timmerman SLS Co. in Lima, Ohio. It is one of the rare Mustangs that were given the factory “R” code 428 Cobra Jet engine. With the engine, came the factory optioned with the  RUG-AE Close Ratio 4-Speed Manual Transmission and it was factory painted in the “M” code Wimbledon White exterior. These cars had factory upgraded front shock towers and staggered rear shocks on the four speed 428 CJs. Some other factory options that this Mustang left Dearborn with were the GT Equipment Group, and power disc brakes. Today, this collectible Mustang is powered by its numbers matching 428 CJ engine, the correct RUG-AE transmission, and still dawns its factory correct Wimbledon White paint. Verifying this information is a full Deluxe Marti Report that accompanies the car.

This 1968 Ford Mustang stands above most other Mustangs because of its rare, numbers matching 428 Cobra Jet engine and factory optioned 4 speed manual transmission.  There was a extremely very low production run on these first :R: code cars, as this engine came out half way during the model year.  ’68 Mustang CJ cars are very sought after, quite collectible and a wonderful addition for anyone looking the add a piece of Ford history to their collection.
