1968 Mustang Sprint-B

What is a Mustang Sprint, you ask? It doesn't say Sprint anywhere on it. Sprint was a mid-year Ford sales promotion that bundled several appearance options together for a better value. The Sprint-B was built around a V8 2bbl car with Fog Lamps, C-Stripes, Chrome Wheel Lip Mouldings, Styled Wheels, and Flip-Open Fuel Cap. The Sprint-A was primarily for the 6-Cyl car and had standard wheels with wheelcovers.

The new paint was applied last Fall. It is 2005 Mustang Lime Gold Metallic. A shade or two different from the Lime Gold that was so popular in '68,
but it blends perfectly with the Ivy Gold interior.

The Upholstery, Carpet, and Door Panels were also done last Fall. All in the original style, in Ivy Gold.
This is a factory A/C car. The underhood components are long gone, but this sought after dash is in excellent condition.

The Taillight Lenses and Chrome Bezels are new, as are the chrome letters across the deck lid.
Chrome Tips on the Dual Exhaust.
Somewhere along the way, the flip-up gas cap disappeared and was replaced with the standard screw-on type. New Reproductions are readily available.
This car has an aftermarket rear window defogger attached to the inside of the glass. Could it have been Dealer installed? Looks like it hasn't worked in years.
We decided to leave it for the new owner to either remove it or repair it.
Fog Lamps from the Sprint Package

Under the hood this car has Chrome Breather and Valve Covers.
Also Chrome Curved Monte Carlo Bar, and Chrome Front Fender Export Brace

Under the breather is a fresh 289 with a Dual-Line Holley sitting on an aluminum Edelbrock intake.
Also under here are the Mallory Electronic Ignition, MSD Coil, and new Headers.
The car still has the C-4 Automatic Transmission.

The trunk is clean, and includes a fifth styled wheel with a nearly new tire on it.
Underneath the trunk mat the car is clean and rust free. The left rear floor board has been replaced, and the right front floor board has been patched.
No other rust areas were found on this car.

The odometer currently reads 46626, but the actual mileage cannot be verified.

A beautiful Classic Mustang! Passenger side Rear View Mirror and the original tinted glass from the A/C Package.
Must see to appreciate! VIN on this car is 8F01C166201
