This 1968 Mustang Pickup Is Actually Pretty Neat In A Mustero Kind Of Way

Inspired by the rare Musteros built by Beverly Hills Ford in the ’60s, this homemade ute could now be yours

  • The pickup was built in the 1980s by a Ford shop owner in Florida as a project with his daughter.
  • The converted Mustang pays homage to the rare and expensive “Mustero” trucks built by Beverly Hills Ford in the late 1960s.
  • It has an asking price of $18,000 on eBay, with the seller claiming it’s in decent condition overall.

For some Ford fans, the idea of modifying a 1968 Mustang into a pickup truck may seem sacrilegious, but I’m going to argue that, in this case, the conversion has actually resulted in a pretty cool vehicle (or should that be truck?) that you could own.

First of all, the donor car that was used to create this homebrewed ute wasn’t particularly interesting. Today, it’s still powered by a humdrum six-cylinder engine that’s connected to an automatic transmission, so the conversion was no great loss to the Mustang reserves.

Second, the vehicle you see for sale here was built as a father-daughter project by a man who owned a Mustang shop in Florida in the ’80s. Not only is that a sweet origin story, it also means that the truck was assembled by someone who knew what they were doing.

Finally, there is precedent for this conversion. The owner refers to this Mustang as a tribute to the Musteros that Beverly Hills Ford built in the late ’60s. Silodrome reports that just 50 examples of the converted car were ever built and that, on top of being rare, it was also very expensive. The truck cost $6,500 in 1966, which made it more expensive than a Shelby Mustang GT350, and just $500 cheaper than a Lamborghini Miura.

This may not be one of the original Musteros, but it looks pretty good in burgundy paint with a burgundy interior. The seller also reports that the truck has a new battery, water pump, heater core, rear bumper, rearview mirror and more.

The Mustero tribute is also in decent condition showing very little rust, but it isn’t exactly fresh, and has around 128,000 miles (205,996 km) on the odometer. Despite that, the owner says that it drives and shifts well.

Offered for sale on eBay, the tribute truck has an asking price of $18,000. Does the customized ride speak to your inner gearhead?
