Most of the Sprint Mustangs were hardtops

To celebrate the sale of the first million Mustangs, Ford did a special Sprint package in the spring of 1966. The package provided upgraded equipment for Mustangs with 6-cylinder engines, and proved successful enough that for 1968, a Sprint “Package B” option was available with a V8 engine.

The Pick of the Day is a 1968 Ford Mustang Sprint Pkg B car offered on ClassicCars.com by a dealer in Geneva, Illinois.

“These unique Sprint models were produced with factory fog lights, C body black stripe & pop open gas cap,” the dealer notes in the advertisement. “Power steering, front disc brakes, factory A/C. This was a fully rare optioned car back in the day… It basically has the attributes as the GT cars but much less of these were sold.”

The dealer adds that the car on offer has “a strong running factory 289 V8 mated to a C4 automatic transmission, power steering, front disc brakes, factory A/C, great looking steel wheels.”

It also wears Golf Stream Aqua paint, reportedly a rare color “making this car a superb investment,” the dealer contends.

“We have an extensive array of original documentation on this car including the original purchase invoice and Buyers Guide. We have the original build sheet. 

“You will be without question the only one at any car show or cruise night with one of these.”

    • As of the posting early this morning, it was still for sale. And our research indicates that it was a package for perhaps 3 years, though I’m not sure if it was nationally offered or was only sold in some regions.
