1968 Mustang Parts
After a major redesign for the previous model year, most 1968 Ford Mustang parts were left unchanged. However, a few 68 Mustang parts were updated to meet new federal safety guidelines and make small improvements to the Mustang overall. One of the biggest new 1968 Mustang parts was the 302 V-8 engine that was much more powerful and would replace the 289 V-8.Other updates to 1968 Ford Mustang parts included new front and rear side marker lights, shoulder seat belts, a suspended mirror, removal of F-O-R-D from the hood, and new 'Mustang' script style lettering on the car, along with several other emblem and trim changes. Several special models, including the first California Special and numerous Shelby models, were created, with many unique 68 Mustang parts being used. The 1968 model year also marked the famous GT 390's appearance in the movie 'Bullitt.' Nearly 320,000 were sold.
Two new 1968 Mustang engines were introduced partway through the model year: The 302 V8 and the 428 Cobra Jet. While the 302 became a mainstream engine for the Mustang, lasting nearly 40 years, the 428 Cobra Jet V8 was the hot new performance engine. With 335 horsepower and 440 ft./lb. of torque, it was one of the most powerful mass-produced motors available. In the 1968 Ford Mustang, most of the Cobra Jet 428s landed in fastback models, though there are a few rare coupes and convertibles with these high powered engines.
