Interesting. I've never seen one with the dog dish hub caps before.

I judged that one once and it is a very nice car. It sold shortly after for mid $50s.

It's my understanding that the car had 50,xxx original miles in 2008. It probably hasn't racked up many more since then.

Marty,
Do you know whether the car is original or restored?

It does seem a bit odd to have basic hub caps on a GT/CS. My first GT/CS had them, but it was weirdly optioned. Here's the Marti. No styled wheels or wheel covers listed.

Sorry, I wasn't even remotely clear. The Marti is for my GT/CS with the dog dish hubcaps.

Marty,

It was restored to MCA concours trailered standards around 10 years ago.

If you did not up grade to a better hub cap or wheel the dog dish caps were what you got. I think a lot of dealer's put on better caps often to sell the car. I have seen several cars with painted wheels with full hub caps.

I like the Black with red interior and stripes. A Marti Report would have been nice to confirm the colors.

Marty, is that AM radio from a Ford truck? Not a correct Philco, 1968 Mustang radio.

I do not know. The I have it in the registry and there is a Marti report that says it came with a AM radio. It is one of two black HCS's.
