In 1968, Ford continued with the restyled, larger and heavier, higher Mustang platform that was introduced in the previous model year. With the horsepower war raging, Ford was forced to up the ante, using its existing big blocks in the new ’67 — ’68 offering. To accommodate the dimensionally larger engine, the body had to be widened 21/2 inches, resulting in a 2" wider front and rear track. This not only gave the car more sure-footed handling, but added to its already menacing stance.
For the ’68 model year, Mustang received a mild facelift. The most notable change was the deletion of the ’67 simulated vents in front of the rear wheels, replaced with a cleaner-looking vertical chrome trim bar integrated into the side C-scoop. Adding the sleek, profiled fastback body option made for the perfect blend of aggressive and elegant design. The 390 engine would be basically the same as ’67 with a new name, GT390, and a token 5 additional horsepower. While some pony car enthusiasts complained about the larger chassis and body, Ford answered the nay-sayers with higher ’68 Mustang production numbers than comparable ponies like Camaro, GTO and Barracuda.
The Franklin Mint is proud to offer its 1:24 scale tribute to the 1968 Mustang GT Fastback — with all the unique features of the original, including a fully detailed GT390 engine and sizzling Sixties-style interior.
