Selling My J-Code GT/CS

Location: Ridgecrest California
Price: 17500.00

1968 GT/CS Mustang in very good unrestored, original condition. Original California car with original black and yellow license plates (verified by registrations and original title) and original (front and rear) license plate frames (verified by original window sticker and original purchase order). Marti report verified.

I purchased the car from the original owner (WWII B-29 pilot - pacific theater) in San Diego California, where the car had resided all of its life (until I bought it).

Pristine window vin tag intact and unaltered
Nice original door tag intact and unaltered

VIN 8R01J167775


Lime Gold paint
Ivy Gold standard interior
Scheduled for build on July 3, 1968
Los Angeles DSO (71)
3.00 standard axle ratio
C-4 automatic transmission

Additional options:
California Special
C-4 Cruise-O-Matic Transmission
F70X40 Wide Oval Tires
White Sidewall Nylon Tires
Power Steering
Air Conditioner Ė Selectaire
AM Radio
Tinted Glass
Remote Control Left Hand Mirror
Chrome Styled Steel Wheels

I also have the original window sticker for the car showing all the options on the Marti report and that it was delivered to University Ford in San Diego.

I have the original purchase order for the car showing the VIN, ownerís name, options, and price that it sold for on 9/8/1968. It also shows that power brakes were added at the time of sale by the selling dealership. The PO is original, not a copy.

I have the original ownerís manual with ownerís name and VIN filled in on the inside of the cover along with dealership stamp and oil changes documented through 1971. I also have the other glove box paperwork (safety guide, warranty book)

I have every registration from 1968 through 1993.

I have the metal temporary owner card and plate, and the plastic warranty identification card.


100% original interior in very good condition. No rips or tears in front or rear seats. Some of the stuffing has compressed in front driver seat, so you sit a little low. However, there is a build sheet still in the springs under the driver seat.

Original FoMoCo green rubber floor mats (front and rear)


All original glass with CarLite logos, no chips or cracks or scratches


4-chrome styled steel wheels (on window sticker, very rare to have as factory option) with beautiful trim rings and GT center caps.

Interior Function

Fuel gauge works

Odometer works

Speedometer works

Temp gauge does not function. Iíd bet itís a bad sending unit and not the gauge.

Oil pressure gauge works

Amp gauge works

Cigar lighter works

Horn works

Overhead dome light works (lens has small hole in center)

Cluster lights work

Dimmer for cluster lights works

High beam indicator (horse) works

Dash turn signal indicators work

Radio works

Shifter lights work

Radio illumination light works

Driver remote mirror works

Door locks work

Window cranks work (knobs are green to match the interior)

Driver interior door latch handle works but loose

Heater/AC fan works on all speeds

Exterior Lights

All exterior lights function properly including:

Headlights (high and low beam), Fog lights, Front parking and marker lights, Taillights (running and brake), Turn signals, Turn signals in hood, and Flashers


Paint is in good condition overall. All metallic paint colors age worse than solid colors. Because of that most metallic cars get painted at some point. The paint on this car is degraded but in good shape. However it is thin in some areas and it has numerous scratches (some of which will come out and some wonít). I think the paint can be cleaned up to a point, but it will never be new again.


Dirty but no rust. Some of the bare steel parts have flash rusted over the years, but this is normal and this is a rust-free car.

The exhaust is original from the engine to the muffler. I think the muffler and tailpipe have been replaced. The exhaust hangers look original.

Drivetrain Function/Power Steering/Brakes

The car starts fine and goes to high idle. After a few minutes it will go to low idle.

It smokes out the tailpipe when itís cold but runs clean after a few minutes at idle.
The transmission shifts well and there are is no slipping or noises.

There are no odd engine noises at idle or under acceleration.

The car runs strong with no issues except as noted above.

The power brakes work well and donít pull

The power steering works well with no odd noises

The car drives very well up to 70-MPH (and more maybe, I just havenít driven it there). Smooth and straight with no pull to either side.

Engine Compartment/Engine

Dirty from years of grime, but virtually untouched

Shock tower spot welds are perfect

Original shock tower sticker in place

Engine and air cleaner still retains its original paint with tune-up specs on driver side valve cover

Original AC compressor with FoMoCo tag

Engine tag still on engine

Carb tag still on carb

Iím sure the engine has never been out of the car or rebuilt
Original air cleaner sticker is in place

The usual belts, hoses, battery cables, and some clamps have been replaced


Good condition, no rust. Bone dry trunk drop-off areas. No indication of any painting that isnít factory. Original spare wheel, but non-orig tire. Reproduction trunk mat (old), no jack or handle.


A rare J-code original paint, untouched GT/CS in California since new with impeccable documentation
