All original 1968 Mustang GT/CS California Special

Location: Bay Area, CA

For sale is a 1968 Mustang GT/CS California Special. It is a very rare "T" code car (6 cylinder 200 cubic inch engine) with Power Steering and Factory A/C that blows cold. This car has been well taken care of with no rust and no resto parts and all original. It is a unmolested, numbers matching car with a Marti report!! It was an original AZ car that recently came to CA. This classic comes with air-conditioning (fully functional), automatic transmission, power steering, and of course the rare gas saving 6 cyl engine, AM stock radio, Lucas driving lights, Shelby treatment, blinker hood (fully functional), red/burgundy interior in nice original unrestored shape (no rips, snags, or tears but a little faded though ). All original FOMOCO glass and even one original FOMOCO headlight too. The paint color (Wimbledon White) is all original, but it looks like it was repainted years and years ago and is now cracking/crazing throughout. The car is a nice "10 footer" but could use a new paint job. Car drives and runs great. Recently serviced with new tires, gas tank and more. 32,3XX on odometer and could be original miles

Very interesting car. I believe the 200 cu with A/T is a low production quantity, and the P/S & A/C would make it even more so. Too bad my stable is full now, or I would be giving you a call! (Of course I have to crank in the $1000+/- shipping cost to NC) Perhaps if/when I sell my convertible I'd give you a shout!

This appears to be a great car and I love the color combination. I cannot believe no one has stepped forward yet on it. I too live in NC and the shipping is a killer these days. If I didn't have so many cars myself, I would definitely be interested. Good luck on the sell!

I looked at this car early last year in Phoenix for fellow member Classicsguy. It was a nice unmolested car with not much wrong at all in terms of original parts. Just worn a bit. Even the fogs, which are on the wrong Shelby square bases, seemed to be "dealer original" (as in probably a dealer retrofit in '68 because of the Marchall fog recall)

Unfortunately classicsguy got scammed out of a lot of cash related to this car. Fulll story here. Whether the original owner was ever involved is hard to say. He claimed he wasn't and proceeded to sell it to someone in San Fran, which obviously I assume is the current owner Ersel66.

I don't post this to say anything negative about the car or it's current owner, but there's been some bad history behind it unfortunately that I don't think has ever been resolved.

Jon: Its the same car and I have not gotten any money back from the scam on E bay.

This is my 2nd GT/CS and I've been on this board for over 6 years (new username). This car is one of the cleanest, most original, rust free cars I've seen/owned. I'm shocked I still have it, but it's okay & it will continue to sit in the garage.
I didn't know anything about its prior history, but I do have the CA title in hand and there are no issues with the car. I did not buy it from eBay, but from someone local from Craigslist.

I'd bet shipping would be around $1,000 these days (to NCish), which still makes it a very reasonably priced car.

Took it for a spin last week and it's a fun car.

I would have jumped on it, but after owning a 390 GT/CS, a 6 cyl would be somewhat dissapointing.

Thought I'd throw in my two cents for what it's worth. I live in the SF Bay Area and just saw the car on Craigslist. I followed the link to this page and just read about the terrible way that Classic Guy got screwed over with this car. I would just give the car to him!

I don't think it's ever going to sell at $12,000 though. Craigslist over here is littered with V8's that have major ammenities for less than 12K. Most of the I6's I've seen around here are going for 4-8K. Please don't take me to the firing squad. It's a beautiful car and I'm only giving one humble man's opinion.
