1968 Ford Mustang Overview

In 1968, the angles on the Mustang got softer, but the overall package just got tougher. Other than more powerful engines such as the 428-cubic-inch Cobra Jet V8 in the appropriately named 428 CJ, changes from the 1967 model were few. However, these 335-plus-horsepower engines certainly made a large difference for the Mustang connoisseur.

The 1968 Mustang included a Shelby model and a GT in addition to the base package and 428. The "KR" in the GT500KR stood for "King of the Road," a title the Shelby Mustang arguably holds to this day.
