One of several 67/68 Mustangs this one was a nice clean restored 68 GT. It was a 289 automatic with a deluxe interior package and the external GT package on it. I bought it in pieces even though the body and paint had been done it needed complete reassembly. This was one I just spent the time, put it together, ran it for a few weeks then sold it. Since it was a documented GT and there was now the emphasis of this by Mustang buyers (much like Corvettes 10 years earlier) it got sold into the USA mainly due to ability and desire to pay market value. It was red, C stripe and black deluxe interior. To me more of a common car so I really had little interest in keeping it. Mustangs of this era, in my opinion, are nicely styled and can be well powered but not well built. Fit is inconsistent, rust is usually a big factor especially in the cowl area which most don't notice until that first rain or car wash. Fun image cars though even though the 390 was a boat anchor in its day now it has risen to a cult status.

It is somewhere out in the midwest USA now.
