Leesburg, Virginia, United States
Beautiful 1968 FORD MUSTANG FASTBACK.
This is a “Turn Key” car that has been completely restored from top to bottom.
This is a Great car that can be driven to car shows and cruise-in's and really be enjoyed.
This car needs nothing but a New Owner and Driver!
Here are the details of the car:
1968 Fastback Mustang with Marti Report, Buck tag, and Door tag.
Body: Car was completely taken apart in 2011.
It was disassembled to a shell and all New Ford sheet metal was used. This includes, New Front Fenders, Inner
Fenders, Battery Box, Radiator Support, Rear Quarters, Front and Rear Valance Panels, New Hood, Headlight Door
Assembly, and Trim, Tail light Chrome, New Bumpers, Hood Hinges.
The old paint on the car was taken off using the razor blade technique to protect the metal instead of using a DA
to remove the paint so that it kept the body lines straight and did not give it the wave down the sides look you
sometimes get from a DA sander. The body prep and paint was done by a Professional Paint Shop and was done right.
The paint is Beautiful Bright Red Base/Clear that was color sanded and buffed to make it very slick with a great
shine. The White C Stripe really gives the car Great Eye Appeal and matches the beautiful Parchment interior.

Horsepower may steal a lot of headlines, but the always-more-complex torque figure is often a critical one for both the workingman and the motoring playboy. The measure of rotational force represents the twist that can liquefy one's tires or haul one's horse trailer. Good stuff.
It follows then, that as with the horsepower-to-weight list that we assembled for you a few months ago, a list of cars that offer the most pound-feet with the fewest pounds to carry, is an interesting one to break down. Sure, there's a big difference in how the torque is applied from a turbocharged six-cylinder in a Swedish luxury sedan and a massive heavy-duty truck's turbo-diesel. But being the car/stat geeks that we are, we think it's kinda neat that those two vehicles rank near each other where torque and weight intersect.
As with the horsepower list, we've given you figures as pounds per every one pound-foot. Again broken down into broad price categories, we've got a mixed bag of 2014 and 2015 models here, too. Every effort has been made to select the most up-to-date prices and specs, and we've also to omitted some '14 cars that won't be re-upped after the ongoing yearly changeover.
Hemmings came across an interesting article from the Throwin' Wrenches blog about the intersection of ice cream, cars and civic duty in America's late 1950s. In particular, it focuses on the Mister Softee trucks, which criss-crossed neighborhoods of the eastern US serving ice cream. Looking past the ultra-durable vehicles used - heavy-duty Ford-based chassis, for what it's worth - the article delves into some deeper national-security territory.
See, Mister Softee truck owners were voluntary members of the Civil Defense, thanks to all the useful stuff (potable water, generators, freezers and fridges) that the machines carried with them for serving ice cream. Click over to Throwin' Wrenches for the full run down of how Mister Softee would have stepped in to help fight if the Cold War ever turned a little hotter.
As the old saying goes, "There's no replacement for displacement." But these days, many automakers are launching powerful, downsized engines that offer similar or better power output than their predecessors, all while offering improvements in fuel economy and emissions. These days, we're seeing automakers replacing eight-cylinder engines with turbocharged sixes, and the naturally aspirated six-cylinder motors are being phased out in favor of potent turbo fours. But Ford has gone even smaller, offering a three-cylinder, turbocharged engine with one single liter of displacement.
Sure, three-cylinder engines aren't anything new - they've been offered around the globe for ages. But Ford's EcoBoost 1.0L powerplant is perhaps the best application the Autoblog team has tested. Gone are the triple-cylinder complaints of yore - this engine doesn't sound anemic or buzzy, and there's healthy power output on tap. In fact, compared to the 1.6-liter inline-four that Ford also offers in the Fiesta, the 1.0-liter is more powerful, while boasting an impressive 45 miles per gallon on the highway.
This engine has already received numerous accolades, including winning the International Engine of the Year award in 2012, 2013 and 2014. The 1.0L EcoBoost will be available in the refreshed 2015 Ford Focus here in the US.
