Immaculate 1968 Ford Mustang Hardtop I caught up with Marcus at the Auto Classic Show at the Waterloo Bay Hotel, Wynnum (Brisbane) who owns this magnificent green 1968 Mustang hardtop. It came out of the factory as a 289 and has been rebuilt as a 302. The rebuild was undertaken by a dedicated guy on […]
