  • 86533 1

To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION WITHOUT RESERVE at RM Sothebys' London event, 24 October 2019. Estimate:£80,000 - £110,000 One of 1,044 fitted with the 428 cu. in. Cobra Jet optionDocumented known ownership history from newHeavily optioned example in striking Acapulco BlueAccompanied by a deluxe Marti report Ford first offered big block power in the facelifted 1967 Mustang. The option continued for 1968, and this professionally restored, meticulously maintained example is one of 42,325 fastbacks produced for that year, including one of just 1,044 fitted with the R-Code 335 bhp, 428 cu. in. Police Interceptor Cobra Jet V-8 engine and, furthermore, one of 860 fitted with the C-6 automatic transmission.This Cobra Jet was built on 9 July 1968 and delivered to Courtesy Auto Sales, Inc., of Jackson, Michigan. It was quickly sold just days later to a Mr Higgins on 13 July. Some years passed, and it was sold to a Mr Phelps, who worked for Courtesy Auto Sales and who had routinely serviced the car. Phelps sold the car in the late 1980s to a Mr Vail, whose intention was to restore the car in time for the 35 Years of Mustang celebration in Charlotte, North Carolina. Having done so, he showed the car throughout the U.S. while putting 3,000 miles on it prior to selling it to Reiny van Uden of the Netherlands. The consignor bought the car from Mr van Uden in 2016. Finished in Acapulco Blue over a black interior, this Mustang is described as one of the most original Cobra Jets available. Heavily optioned, it is equipped with air conditioning, tinted glass, power steering and power front disc brakes, tilt-away steering wheel, GT equipment, locking differential, sport deck rear seat, AM radio, and the interior decor group with deluxe steering wheel. Proper flat black hood stripes and gold C-stripes highlight the exterior.The interior remains original, and documentation includes the original Bill of Sale from 1968, four titles evidencing ownership, and a Deluxe Marti Report. It is noted as retaining its original engine and transmission. It has been technically overhauled and regularly exercised by the consignor and would be a thrill to drive and enjoy.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/lf19.
