LMC is very proud to offer for sale this 1968 Ford Mustang GT
Ford completed the first redesign of the legendary Mustang for the ’67 model year with improved dimensions to allow the installation of a big-block – the Thunderbird 390. The most noticeable design changes were the larger/deeper grill mouth and concave tail lights. Ford then provided minor changes for the second model year in ’68 that focused on safety such as the two spoke energy absorbing steering wheel, shoulder belts, and side markers. Car and Driver testing, an automatic-equipped GT-390 posted a 0-60 mph time of 6.3 seconds and a quarter-mile time of 14.8 seconds. Ultimate performance numbers didn’t matter, though, when Steve McQueen drove a 1968 Mustang GT-390 through the streets of San Francisco in the movie “Bullitt” to create one of the all-time great car chase scenes.
