This was an absolutely stunning car that I came across in Budapest…a red 1968 Ford Mustang Fastback!
I don’t think I have ever seen this model in real life, and it was a shocker to see it on the streets of Budapest of all places. Such a good looking muscle car. Perhaps this was even more of a surprise than it was to find the 1968 Lincoln Continental in Berlin. Tough to say, I just don’t expect to see American cars like these in Europe.
This is a great looking muscle car. Candy apple red, lots of chrome, some fat tires, and slick looking rims. Really big in the rear of the car, looks super powerful and a lot tougher than the other first generation Mustangs produced between 1964-1966. Of course, the 1967 version and this particular 1968 Fastback were part of a brand new redesign of the original model.
This beauty was driven by LT. Frank Bullitt played by actor Steve McQueen in the 1968 movie Bullitt, and chased down a black 1968 Dodge Charger.
The rear side markers look incredible! The rear window is a massive piece of glass. What a fantastic slope to the back. Nice mini fins too.
Really good looking.
Lets take a look at the front end of this gorgeous Mustang.
And here we have a nice side view of the vehicle.
Love the 3 vertical signal and brake lights with chrome wraparound. This back end looks like it could take on a brick wall. Now that is some high quality solid steel. They don’t make cars like this anymore.
I bet this car has one haunting rumble sound to it.
Looks poised to blast it down this one way street.
And there you have it, the 1968 Ford Mustang Fastback!
