It’s beyond difficult to find an all-original pony car, thanks in large part to a number of variables that can make upkeep on a mid-century Mustang more of a headache than it’s worth. But every once in a while, an immaculately kept showpiece decides to show its face to the world — behold, the all-original 1968 Ford Shelby GT350 Fastback.

This critically acclaimed Acapulco Blue Mustang retains its original 302ci OHV V8 engine capable of nearly 306-horsepower. It features a nostalgic Saddle-colored interior that’s sure to coerce true Ford aficionados, helping them to recall the “golden years” of the famed auto manufacturer. Alongside an all-original interior, the car boasts the same 4-speed manual transmission gifted to it at birth, with a number of desirable extras ranging from an extra cooling package, visibility group, sport deck rear seats, and power front disc brakes, all the way to an interior decor group, heavy duty front and rear bumper guards, and power steering — a coveted addition, at the time. The classic car retains its original livery throughout the interior and exterior, and for around $80,000, you can pick it up from the upcoming Bonhams auction that’s slated to take place in the mecca of classic car shows: Scottsdale, Arizona.

Purchase: $80,000+
