8R01C142543 Spotted - For Sale

8R01C142543 spotted today at the VMOA car show in Campbell, CA with a For Sale sign on it. The car is not in the registry.

Appears to be Wimbledon white with possibly original paint in fair condition. Lucas lights, incorrect pedestals. Body seems in good condition, but I did not see under the hood, trunk or undercarriage. It was driven in, so clearly a running vehicle.

Ask on the sign is $20K. I did not speak to the owner, so have no idea what the car's history is, but I have posted a photo with the contact info in case someone here is interested in it.

Wow! This one has a lot in common with Doug! Both similarly equipped although this one had black stripes and a remote mirror. aside from that, identical extras.
Both were scheduled to be built feb 15th but both got pushed to Feb 20th. cool!

Cool

This car was owned since new by the Nells. I met Louise Nell in 2008 just a couple of blocks from my house. She was waiting to get her hair done and I happen to see her car parked out side of the salon. I popped my head inside the salon and asked if that Mustang outside was hers and she said yes. She told me that one Saturday in 1968 her husband was reading the newspaper and he got up and said that he would be back in a little while. Louise looked at the newspaper after he left and saw the ad for the new 68 Mustang California Special. He went down to the Ford dealer and purchased this car and brought it home. Her husband passed away after they had moved from Southern Cal to Folsom Cal. Louise drove the car until she couldn't drive any more. I had lost track of Louise and the car and always wondered what happened to it. She had told me that she had no heirs. The car was well taken care of and she was very proud to drive it every day. When I met her she said that she had been offered $8,000 and turned it down. She said that she called her insurance agent and increased the value to $8K and when I told her that it was worth twice that she about fell over. She said that she would call her agent again and increase it to $15K. Happy to see that it is still on the road. Sure wish that I could buy it.

Cheers,

Ron

Thanks for the story Ron. Hopefully someday you will once again have a cs or hcs. I too lost track of your car. Someone close to my neighborhood bought your car and tried to flip it soon after. That's the last i heard of it.
