68 Fender Emblems These are the emblems on the front fenders - a tri-color horse and Mustang script.
68 Fastback Side Vents Here is a close-up of the rear quarter roof pillar vents.
331ci Engine The fender says this is a 331ci High Performance engine.
Custom 68 Interior The interior has many custom items - bucket seats, center console, automatic shift kit, and tach.

Special Order Green WT7148 paint 1968 Mustang Hardtop Here is an unusual one. Its a special order 1968 Mustang hardtop which came with automatic transmission, power steering, sport tires, sport wheel covers, louvered hood, C-code 289ci V8 engine, black side stripe, and special order paint (WT7148). It was built in the San Jose plant but under special order number 3059 from Salt Lake City. We've confirmed that the Rainbow of Colors promotion also ran from Salt Lake City. We've been recently emailed of another special order green painted Mustang from the same special order number by Mike in Idaho. We think both of these cars were part of the Rainbow of Colors west coast promotion. WT7148 is a close match to WT7126 which was used in this promotion.
Special Order Green 1968 Mustang Hardtop A lower front right view of the Special Order Green 1968 Mustang hardtop. Most items on this car are stock, the paint has been redone and touched up and the black stripes have been painted on (but originally ordered with them).

Bench Seats 1968 Mustang Hardtop Bench seats!!! Yes, this car came with front beach seats. The door data tag confirms this.
Dash Close-up Close-up of the dash. In 2000 the odometer read 60,000. Now it reads 2,224. So the owner thinks it either has 202,224 or 102,224 on it.
Mustang 1968 C-code 289ci V8 engine Here is the 1968, Ford, Mustang, C-code, 289 cubic inch, V8 engine. The owner thinks its been rebuilt once.
Door Data Tag Here is the door data tag. It reads: 65C hardtop body style with bench seats, blank color code, 8A Black Comfortweave Bench seats (the seats look 100% vinyl, so there may have been some repair), 21C scheduled to be assembled on the 21st of March 1968, 73 ordered in the Salt Lake City area under special order 3059, 2 2.79:1 rear axle ratio, and W automatic transmission.
Bennett Ford Rear Decklid Emblem Here is a close-up of the Bennett Ford rear decklid dealer emblem.

Special Order Green 1968 Mustang Hardtop Mike Taylor from Meridian, Idaho found this special order green painted 1968 hardtop parked in Billings, Montana, outside, under a canvas cover. It had been there for six years. Mike sent us photos of the car as he found it and a few of getting it home. Mike is starting to restore it. It is a special ordered car with a blank paint code and special order number 3059 from Salt Lake City.

What is interesting about this car is its special color. Mike's research shows it as Ford special order code WT7034 and was ordered with Andrew's 1968 Special Order Green Mustang of which we also have photos of. Andrew's car is a bluish green that Marti matched to WT7148 which is an almost exact match to WT7126. Both WT7034 and WT7126 has an historical use on 1968 and 69 Mustangs since it is two of 13 colors used for the West Coast Rainbow of Colors promotion. We've just confirmed that the Rainbow of Colors ran in the LA, San Jose, and Salt Lake City area.
Restoring the Interior Mike is starting to work on the interior. Mike says that the interior had been replaced at one time but the quality was pretty poor (they used household shag carpet and literally screwed it to the floorboards). The door data tag for this car reads 65A hardtop body style with standard seats, blank color code indicating a special order paint color, 2U parchment seats, 21C scheduled for assembly on the 21st of March 1968, 73 ordered in the Salt Lake City area with special order number 3059, 2 2.79:1 rear axle ratio, and 5 4-speed manual transmission.
Special Order Green 1968 Mustang Hardtop Here is another view of the interior. Mike's sister car was ordered with Corinthian Black bucket seats and automatic transmission.
Special Order Green 1968 Mustang Hardtop Here is the state of Mike's 289ci V8 engine. Mike says the engine was rebuilt and performance upgraded in the late 1980's early 1990's. Here is what the engine might have originally looked like .
Trunk Lid Hopefully there is some non-faded paint in the trunk to perform a color match to.
Special Order Green 1968 Mustang Hardtop Here is the rear decklid dealer plate. Its a little different design than its sister car's dealer emblem.
