Breathtaking 1968 Mustang Fastback 428 Cobra Jet

r code 1968 ford mustang

The combination of the iconic Fastback design and R-code engine makes this 1968 Ford Mustang one of the most desirable classics. Born in San Jose and restored more than 20 years ago, the Stallion is still in show stopping condition all the way around. It rocks all of its original sheet metal, the chrome is excellent and the paint looks amazing after so many years.

Under the hood of this 1968 Mustang Fastback sits its numbers matching four barrel 428 Cobra Jet V8 powerplant paired with the factory original C6 automatic and Ford 9-inch limited slip differential with the optional 3.91 gears. There were 1299 R-code Mustangs built in 1968, and I’m not sure how many came with front bench seat, but it surely makes this pony even more rare.

Play the Longtin Auto Sport video filmed when this Mustang was still for sale to see more.
