'68 GT/CS at Mecum KC

A Highland Green S-code GT/CS sold for $42,500 at the Mecum auction in KC. The sale is 2 hours and 30 minutes into Saturday's telecast.

DESCRIPTION

- True S-code 390 4 barrel 4 speed California Special Mustang
- Restored to factory original hiland green paint and ivory gold interior
- All as stated in the Marti report
- High end total nut and bolt rotisserie restoration
- Red oxide floor pans
- No detail untouched
- Very rare car


Because it's Highland Green with a white vinyl top and the auction is in KC I think it was the S-code, 4-speed project project car that has been for sale in Shawnee for a long time.

It's a beautiful car. It has a few obvious issues like Lucas driving lights, Shelby posts on top of GT/CS posts, and the lower grille panels are not charcoal, but it's beautiful.

(Except it's Candy Apple Red)

I may have passed my "best before" date, but I haven't reached my "expiry" date!

HEY!! That looks a lot like mine: Highland Green, White vinyl top. But I put mine back to the original Nugget Gold interior. But mine's a paltry 302, A/T. ;-)
The DESCRIPTION says "Ivory Gold" interior. I wonder if its Ivy Gold or Nugget Gold. I can't wait 'til I get mine cleaned & polished- it WILL look as good as the auction photo. (The paint/finish IS that good.)
