I gotta say, “this is not your average '68 Mustang!” This particular Mustang is exceptional! Why? Because somehow through the years, no one has messed with it! First of all, it's believed to be a a 2-owner car, with 48,700 original miles, although there in no supporting documentation. Built at the San Jose plant, and purchased originally by a lady in Corvallis, Oregon, at Wilson Ford. She obviously kept the Mustang in the garage the whole time she owned it, and compulsively maintained it until she sold it to it's next owner that picked up the baton and continued to obsessively maintain the car, and synthetically restore the Mustang as needed.
Where I'm going with this is, this Mustang absolutely drives like the day it was new. It starts, runs, and drives so nicely, and all of the accessories work properly as well.
If you're a car person, I think you know what I mean. You can tell if a classic car has been in the hands of...Say, an over zealous teenager, or perhaps owned by someone that just doesn't really care about their car, and has left it out in the elements. You know what I'm talking about.
This is not one of those cars! The mileage indicated on this Mustang may be original.
Take a look at the undercarriage and note all of the original metal including the clean no rust frame, rocker areas, and floor pans. Not pretty and detailed, but original! Even still has single exhaust. I can't believe this Mustang doesn't even dribble anything on the floor.
There's nothing like an original, smooth, well taken car of classic car, no matter what brand it is!
To own this Mustang, is to Love it! Nice investment too!
