Mustang Sprint B 1968 / The GT That Wasn't A GT

Click here to edit subtitle

The 1968 Sprint  was originally introduced midway through the 1966 model year when Ford introduced the Millionth Mustang Sale featuring the limited-edition Sprint package which had a lot more chrome and a different engine due to engine availability problems in 1966. The Sprint option remained in later years with just the additional chrome and paint options which gave the car a GT look without the price. The 1968 Mustang Sprint option "A" consisted of GT stripes, pop-open gas cap and the full wheel covers of six cylinder Mustangs. The "B" option received the V8 engine, Argent styled steel wheels with Wide Oval Tires, and GT fog lamps. Early in 1968 this package was sold as limited-edition Mustangs "C" stripe, and by mid March called a limited edition Mustang Sprint offered in all body styles.
