Most Famous GT/CS coming up for sale.

Yes. I'm going to sell my GT/CS.
It will go up for sale in August, 2008. This is just a head's up for folks on this site.

I will be mailing fliers to everyone in the Registry in late July with the details.

390-4-speed--type car. Original Maroon paint. This is the cover car for the 1989 book (that inspired the late model GT/CS), and will be featured in the new book. It is THE premiere GT/CS in the Registry, owned since April 1974 by myself, the GT/CS Registrar. This is the CS that inspired the GT/CS Registry and book.

This will be offered to serious buyers only, for a premium price.

thank you,
Paul M. Newitt

Paul,
I hope this decision is being made because it is time to move on, and not to finance the book project. Good luck with the sale.

Paul: this is of interest & I would appreciate the details when you are ready to send them out. I'm probably not on your registry as I don't now own a 68 but I am looking
Thanks
Peter

Of course, this is a very hard decision, and in some ways, I feel like I'm selling off part of myself. My CS has been "everywhere twice", including long trips to BC Canada, (photo is it on a BC Ferry to Vancouver in 1985) and up the backside of the Sierra Nevada on Hiway 395.

I don't have the place to tear her down and go through her properly. If I did, then there's no place to park her without concern. I've had 35 years with her, and I jokingly call it my "first marriage"...LOL....

It's partly for $$ for the book, but I'm developing a new business, and the money will help, that too. I can't keep her, and I need to move on after the book is out.

But, I really appreciate your concern, because it shows just how much you love your own GT/CS.

Let's hope that she gets a good new owner.

Gee, I hope you win the lottery so you can fund your new venture. That car is part of you................and I hate to see you go separate ways. I know this would be a tough and difficult decision for me.

Sam

it\'s great to own a 68\' ......live free or die

I certainly appreciate all the interest in my GT/CS. Yes, it will be a very difficult decision to let go of something I've had for over 34 years.

I'll be sure to contact all interested parties when I compile the car's information late in July.

Thank you, too for all your kind thoughts about me and my car. And yes, it's been a very long and memorable ride.

50th birthday present

Paul, I am surprised by your decision and I know the decision wasn't an easy one sir. I am considering selling my "Royal Maroon" up here in Canada. I have only owned her for just about year I received some news about my health that leaves me with many very difficult decisions in the future. My 16 year old son would prefer I keep the car. I think he has some plans for it when he gets his licence next month

I truly believe the 68 Mustang GT/CS is truly one of the most beautiful vehicles ever produced. We are all very fortunate to own such a unique automobile. My opinion
