An attractive classic daily driver
When I purchased this car, it had been the victim of a shady used car dealer who covered up a lot of abuse.
- The rear brakes metal lines were missing.
- A cheap quarter panel had been attached poorly.
- A gallon of bondo had been used to cover up damage and/or rust around one of the headlight bezels.
- The ignition key differed from the door locks, in fact there was no key for the door locks.
- Paint was peeling off the cowl area.
As I drove the car, I fixed things that began to wear out. At the time I was driving it regularly to college about 150 miles a week. All things considered, it was a very dependable car. It had a tendency to use oil and I never fixed the problem, I just kept buying oil.
At the time I had three other cars, one of the which was another 68 Mustang, so I couldn't spend as much repairing one particular car as I would have liked. I tried to restore and repair as much as I could afford with this particular car.
The interior was in great condition, but a lot of routine service had been ignored, so that is where the bulk of my money had been spent.
Six cylinder mustangs were not as desirable at the time as their V-8 counterparts; many of these were driven daily rather than being restored and garaged.
It took awhile for people to notice the 67-68 Mustangs as far as classics, but I found them to be every bit as classic. I eventually sold it locally and saw it occasionally.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
