Ask a Ford enthusiast what was the most perfect Mustang ever built, and you’re bound to get a lot of different answers. We’d wager that most of the answers would fall somewhere between 1964 ½ and 1970 though, the “classic” Mustang years. These are among the most sought-after models on the market, and pristine examples with low miles and lots of options can draw big bucks. Just how many bucks depends on the car and the buyer.
Up on eBay is right now is a 1968 ½ Mustang that boldly claims to be among the most perfectly restored examples in existence. It’s what every car collector needs in their garage, if the claims are true…and judging from the pics, that looks to be the case.
First off, this 1968 ½ Mustang is the right year with the right options, sporting a 428 Cobra Jet big-block V8 to begin with. It has also been meticulously restored with all-original parts including the correct factory hood scoop, the factory Philco AM radio, and even original Goodyear Polyglas tires. All told, this is one of the cleanest, best-restored Mustangs on the market, which is reflected in the nearly $150,000 asking price.
What really makes this Mustang stand out though is the long, long list of prestigious awards, including a number of Concours trophies for its meticulous restoration. This Mustang has the kind of pedigree that many people only dream of, and it can all be yours for the median price of a 3-bedroom house in the MidWest. It is definitely collector car worthy if you ask us, even at such a high asking price.
