Cobra Jet 1968 High Country Special in Denver?

A couple different people told me about a Cobra Jet HCS that was for sale recently in the Denver area for $50,000. Red with black hood stripe.

Did anyone catch the ad on Craigslist, snag some photos, or even buy the car? I would love to get a look at that one.

I can only imagine that it would be Bob Teets CJ HCS? I would be surprised that he would be selling it.

I think I saw a modified 68 GTCS in the Denver area that had a 428.
I am pretty sure Bob's is not for sale. If it was for sale for 50 K it would be in my garage.

I seriously doubt it could be Bob Teets' HCS. Years ago, $70K could not have bought it.
I rode with Bob in that car on the LA freeway. (We got lost on our way to a gathering @ Halpern Ford.) What a hoot. A classic Classic.

I wish I had more definitive info, it's all secondhand. But I was told the car was an R code. Now I'm second guessing myself that it might have been a California Special and not a High Country.

I was hoping someone here might have seen it before the ad was pulled.

It's a C-code with an engine swap.

Thanks for putting that one to rest.

The funny thing is, I am sure I had seen that ad before but did not make the connection.

This one doesn't have a black hood stripe.
