DTO: Happy 4th of July: 1968 Ford Mustang Fastback

 It doesn’t get much more ‘Merican than Ford’s iconic Mustang, especially one of the early first generation cars (1964-1973).  The 1967 restyle is one of my personal favorites and the fastback model is, has been and always will be, the one to get.  What could be more fitting for the Fourth of July than a 1968 Mustang Fastback covered in the American flag…well…nothing.  Find this 1968 Ford Mustang Fastback offered for $89,998 buy-it-now on ebay, located in Addison, TX.

What in the name of Betsy Ross is going on with the stars and stripes painted onto this thing?  It seems that this artistic rendition of Old Glory is a tattered old flag that is being sucked into the hood scoop and flapping out the fender vents.  The overall effect is that of a Mustang that seems to be driving through an American flag.

Under the stars and stripes is an all aluminum “Dart” 427 cubic inch V8 rated at 625 horsepower.  The big V8 should be good for some serious freedom inducing burnouts and will sound glorious anywhere from idle to a boil.

This Fastback is advertised as a “Pro Touring Sanderson Stryker Mustang Fastback:”…whatever that means.  The seats have a Stryker logo stitched into them and everything looks recently replaced/refreshed on the inside.  Its like getting a new car, except that this seller expects you to pay for all those parts!

See a better car that is 4th of July ready? tips@dailyturismo.com
