1968 Ford Mustang FASTBACK X-CODE 390BB ONLY 189 BUILT 1 OF 19 COLOR Additional Info:


One of the Most Rare of all '68 Mustangs

1968 Ford Mustang Fastback

X-Code 390 Big Block

Only 189 Produced

One of 19 in the Original "Highland Green" & Decor Trim

Unrestored Original • No Rust

Deluxe Interior• No Wreak Ever Body

Drivable, Fully Functional, Survivor with all of it's Original Metal

Extremely Rare • All Original Metal • No Rust Solid Body Top to Bottom

I really don't need to point out the obvious to the thousands of Mustang aficionados out there but you all know the rarity of an X-Code Fastback. The original color of this car makes it even more rare at only 19 produced. Not that most colors matter much but when it's the same color of the "Bullet Green" known as Highland Green with the blacked out hood treatment, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity for someone to have their dream car. When you read the Marti Report below, you'll realize your not dealing with a stripped down car either. It was loaded with great options, the decor interior with overhead and center consoles, power steering and brakes, heavy duty suspension and more. What's most important though is its condition. Bought in Southern California in July 1968, looks like it was sold to a lady in 1973 (we were told it was in the same family but the name is not the same) but she owned it until 2015. Garaged all of it's like. There is absolutely no corrosive rust holes anywhere to be found on the body of the car, from the floors to the lower side panels and trunk, nothing but solid metal. Not just any metal either, it's all original metal. The front fenders, doors and rear quarters, all original to the car. Never in a wreck, just a few small dings in the paint. All of which you will be able to see if you pour over all the pictures within this presentation. Like me, I want to see it all and you will be able to as well. So get ready to be excited to bid, call me with you great offer or just enjoy seeing such a rare and exciting historical muscle car for the late 60s.

Market Value Pricing

$45,000 to $55,000

Before you send me an email asking me for my "best price, bottom-line or asking price" let me just make a suggestion based on 36 years of buying and selling experiences. Deals are made through conversations, not texting, not emailing or conversations without even knowing who or what you are talking to, they happen throughpersonal contact. I want my my clients to know who they are trying to make a deal with. I want to know their real intent to buy also. This equation does not exist with "What's your best price?" and no personal contact. I have gone to great lengths to find this incredible vehicle, make sure it's the best it can be for you and present it in a way that no other seller does online. I do that so we can talk, make a clear deal, fair for both sides and watch a happy buyer enjoy their new ride. If you just don't have the gumption to make contact and you just want an idea of price, look at what the market values posted above say, they are fairly accurate on AVERAGE vehicles across the US. If you think this vehicle is average, above or below, bid accordingly or. . . pick up the phone and have a pleasant conversation with a real enthusiast that can make your deal on the spot. Keeping it real.

Seeing a car like this brings back memories and emotions for many. Most want them very badly but with today's market on big block Ford Mustang Fastbacks, it isn't like everyone can afford their dreams anymore. especially when they are restored to museum level quality and exceeding six figures to buy. Here, is a drivable as it is super rare collectible Fastback that you can keep just the way it is or get ready to make it into your dream Fastback. What does it need to be drivable everyday? The tires are old, cracked and not safe for long distances, general mechanical condition is great but nothing looks like its fully restored, this is a true survivor that runs and drives, doesn't heat up at all; in fact the whole time I shot the photos the car was running. It would be a car that you would want to have it gone over for safe drivability if you wanted to drive it daily. But she runs and drives fine right now too. Just don't think you'll fly out to Las Vegas and drive it home to New York. Just saying. I would not advise it on the tires alone.

The lines are factory perfect since the car has never been in a wreck of any kind. Doors, trunk and hood lines are as they left the factory. The over all condition is stunning as a survivor and most important, the metal top to bottom is in such good condition without cancer rust anywhere we could inspect and we went deep into inspecting it as you will soon see.

We all love this stance of the Fastbacks, keeping this car stock right down to every nut an bolt might be your dream and someone else may want to modify this into an Eleanor (we sure hope not) but whoever buys it will know they have something very rare and special.

Decor Group Interior gives you all the goodies of woodgrain, center console and overhead console and the head rests were optional too. Deluxe seat belts, woodgrained steering wheel. Its all there and in very good original condition.

Flawless Metal Undercarriage. More detailed pictures below. Please look at them, it's beautiful to see factory originality.

Original "Wide Oval" Spare still in the trunk, never hit the road

A note from the owner.

I am a “used car dealer” but before that, I’m an automobile enthusiast. I love original rare and high quality modified vintage cars and over the past decade I’ve been in business, have come to appreciate an expanding selection of high-demand, high value vehicles. I specialize in and am always on the lookout for cars and trucks that were cherished by their previous owners. I have an experienced eye for quality but I’ve discovered that my preferred buyer can instantly discern such a vehicle and I have therefore, built my business and reputation around finding these kinds of cars for this type of customer. Super low miles and/or gentle ownership are strict requirements but a car must do something for me on a personal level if there is any hope of convincing you, the bidder, that this is an above average, exceptional vehicle. If nothing about the car excites me, it probably won’t do much for you either and I would soon be out of business.

With just four employees and no sales people, I realize how unusual a “dealership” like mine may at first glance appear. It has taken great care and effort to create such an organization and often, an unusually high investment in a particular car we are about to list. To sell the best it is critical to have a trusted expert in my corner and Chris, owner of A-Best Auto Repair in Henderson, Nevada has my back. He and his crew can fix anything; from a low budget beater to the absolute most expensive exotic you can name, no job is too big and no small detail unimportant. They do an exhaustive 130 point inspection on each and every vehicle and nothing escapes their methodical investigation. Experience has shown that everything I spend making a car truly “right” will come back to me not only with a higher selling price, but a happy customer that says good things about me. Moreover; it allows my writer to describe the car with ease and confidence, something that simply is not possible unless he thinks it is true. If major issues are found or the cost of fixing the car the way it should be makes it too expensive to sell, my choice is an easy one. I simply absorb a few hundred dollars loss for my trouble and sell it at auction.

After the vehicle is fully sorted it arrives at our facility where it encounters the suspicious eye of Tom, my writer that creates the presentations you see on eBay. He believes absolutely nothing I or anyone else tells him about the car as he combs over every inch, researches its history and documents originality and authenticity. Historical significance, rarity, special features, possible modifications and much more are used to accurately describe the vehicle with integrity and honesty. Most important for the potential buyer are the 100 to 150 high resolution pictures that I take myself. The pricey equipment I use would be right at home in the hands of the very best professional photographers and I’ve developed a logical format that walks you around the entire vehicle with close-up shots of every square inch. I provide detailed views of the interior, under the hood and then put it on a lift to show the undercarriage and confirm that the beauty of the car you are considering is not merely skin deep. Even our detailers are enthusiastic about the cars they so meticulously clean. This reconditioning can sometimes take several days and I’ve converted a paint booth, especially prepared for the professional clay bar and polishing each car lovingly receives.

Usually, I’ll also include a high definition video that shows the car doing its thing. If it’s a fast car, we film it going fast. If it’s a 4x4 you’ll see it crawling up a hill. In every case you will hear things like a rumbling exhaust, working sound system and watch the temperature fall on a digital, laser thermometer pointed at an air conditioning vent. How many “dealers” will video a Lotus Esprit doing a buck-eighty? We do.

No “dealer,” on-line or in the real world, takes it to this level. No other seller or organization provides you, the buyer, with so much information. I do this because it is the only way I can convince a person; often a world away, unable to touch or feel their purchase, that my vehicle is for real and what I say is the truth. All the above is necessary for me to stay in business while keeping integrity intact. I want every buyer to be happy and I need glowing feedback on eBay. To accomplish that I need satisfied customers that are as thrilled with their purchase as I was when I bought it.

If you have any questions at all, please call me on my cell at: 702-353-7500. If your inquiry is sincere and your offer serious, you’ll find me the most accommodating business partner you’ve ever dealt with. If you call or e-mail asking for my reserve or “what is my bottom line” I will be looking for ways to politely end the conversation. Until you are ready to actually pull the trigger, I will happily quote you the absolute highest nationally advertised suggested retail price I can find – a number we both know will not buy the car so, don’t waste your time, or mine. I am after all, a “used car dealer.”

Serious buyers know the maximum they can offer. I then must simply decide if I can sell for that number.

If you hit the reserve, the decision is no longer mine. I must sell at that number.
