Think The ‘Coyote’ 5.0 Sounds Good? Check Out A 1968 Ford Mustang V8: Video

Sponsored Links

Let it not be said that the current-generation Ford Mustang GT and Shelby GT350 sound “bad” in any way, shape, or form. The 5.0-liter “Coyote” V8 under the hood of the former model spits out a classic, throaty V8 burble that can sound-off with the best of them. The latter model’s 5.2-liter “Voodoo” V8, with its unique, flat-plane crank design, roars with an entirely different sort of character.

Even still, sometimes, there’s nothing quite like the menacing grumble of a genuine vintage V8.

The video above, uploaded to YouTube channel “LoonyGarage,” gives us a good taste of what such an engine sounds like in a first-generation, 1968 Ford Mustang. We couldn’t quite tell you which motor it is that we’re hearing here – Is it a Windsor small-block? A large-displacement FE? Something else altogether? – but it certainly sounds tremendous.

But please, don’t take our word for it; give this magnificent, vintage Ford Mustang a listen for yourself.
