Great dealer emblem, German Mustang. Still has original smog on it!

Interesting that even though it was shipped to Belgium it got T5 emblems. You can make out the holes for the FORD (in place of MUSTANG) on the fender picture.

Might make a good donor car for some needy Shelby owner out there - might be a little early

Have pictures of another one (100 numbers off this one) that was also shipped to Belgium but it received a state plate attached to the drivers side inner fender. It was not badged as a T5. Wonder if the dealer that placed the order (in Belgium) already had a plan to trade or transfer the one in the Ebay ad to Germany when the order was placed


Also have pictures of one that was exported to Japan - built in NJ.

Thanks for sharing

Odd that it does not have export brace.

Not often you see a fully exposed fender apron vin on a 68. Very cool car.

Indeed

And it's cool to see the original buck tag from such an unusual car.

Depends on the plant  - some stamped it (in 68) where it is visible others only hidden

maybe "some" as in people. Since you are saying depends on the plant you must mean Metuchen like this car? I have seen plenty of 68's and to have a fully exposed vin is rare.

No - not as in some people but some plants.

Dearborn and San Jose there were stamped so the VIN in the fender cut out was not visible ( though every once in a while you'll find one of stamped "high") - where at NJ they were. Just another one of the differences that year.

My 68.5 Dearborn is a partial visible and have seen many that way but certainly not most. This T5 is like a 67. What percentage of the Metuchen cars have you seen like this?

it may not have the value of a shelby but i disagree that it should be a donor car considering its rarity.

Differing opinions - that is what this is all about. Rarity does not always make the effort worth it IMHO  but plenty of opinions out there. A couple of friends have owned concours T5's over the years. During the last couple of years a 67 T5 fastback was traded in to a local Ford dealer (for a new car) by its original owner. Think a couple of pictures of that one ended up in Mustang Monthly I believe - the car changed hands a few times (at least four I know of ) since the car was traded in.

Think that the non-T5 exports are even rarer and sometimes more different than the T5's since allot more of those came back to the US

Now I think it would be unusual to see one of the Mustangs with a number rather than letter engine codes - export model. Wink
