GT equipment

Does anyone have the figures on how many 1968 California Specials and High Country Specials were equipped from the factory with the GT equipment group? Thanks.

I'll take a SWAG at this. All of the 390 4V cars and all the 428 CJ which should equal 227. Of the 962 J-code car let's say 25% were GT's that would be another 240. Total California Special/ HCS with factory GT option = 467.

How is that for a guess! Maybe Paul's new book will have the true numbers from Kevin Marti's data.


68 S code GT Fastback, 68 J code GT Conv., 68 1/2 R code GT Coupe

Don't forget about the "X" code 390's. They also were eligible for the GT Equipment Group as well. I'm sure a few of those could be added in.

Cool

Here's some general info regarding '68 Mustang stats:

“About 17458 of these Mustangs came with the GT Package!”

... unfortunately they don't break out the GT/CS data ...

I knew some X-codes were equipped with the GT option I did not think for the CS/HCS it could be more than a couple. Also I don't know if 25% is a high or low guess for the J-codes. Again just a SWAG.

Although if these numbers are close it makes the "standard" GT coupe almost as rare as a California Special.
