"Tsk, tsk, tsk." Oh I know I'll get beat up for what I'm about to say. But, at lease we can agree to disagree.
Ok, to start with, what's with that funky steering wheel in the 67. I mean you would prefer to stare at a pill than the sleek style of a nice horizontal padded steering wheel with the horn ring within thumbs reach? No, say it isn't so!
Let's move on to the seats in a 67. I have lawn chairs in the back yard that have a thicker back then the seats in a 67. To stealth for my taste. The 68 have thicker energy absorbing front seats backs.

The 68 does indeed contain "extra stuff". Side markers for one, and if you were one of the fortunate ones, (which I'm not) the 68 would have a small sliver of post padding and dash padding. The front door armrests are longer & the door handles are hinged paddle types (sleek looking). Otherwise, from bumper to bumper almost the same....with some minor exceptions to the stencil lettering and the scoop (which would drive me nuts on wax day - it's bad enough that lettering is on my trunk lid and the 67 scoop, let's not go there).
As the Beach Boys once said: Be true to your Mustang (or was that school?).
