Talking GT/CS for sale ORIGINAL PAINT FULLY LOADED with MARTI REPORT

I am selling my 1968 Seafoam Green GT/CS. Its a 289-2V car with 76,498 original miles! I took it to Fabulous Fords at Knotts Berry Fram two years ago were it drew a crowd. The paint is original and never repainted. The original spare is in the trunk and the car has a second set of bias tires on it. Its a fully loaded car with A/C, Power Disc Brakes and P/S. It still retains its original factory ink stampings throughout the engine compartment.

The only things that I did were changing the power booster and master cylinder and water pump so I could make the trip to the shows.

I can be contacted on my cell at 310-227-6860 or email: mecone@aol.com
Price $17,000

Nice original car. The price seems a little low. Have you checked out the Nadaguides appraised value on these lately?

I agree. An ORIGINAL, well optioned C/S should sell for way more than your asking price IMHO.

Talking My GT/CS original

I know the price is very low for this car. I am building a house and need the cash. I have 4 GT/CS's and I will be selling a repainted Black on Black for $18k as soon as I finish the new chrome installation. These nice fully optioned cars are priced low to sell. Hope they go to a well respected buyer!
Thanks

I'm waiting for the lime green one with the 347 stroker. Talk about a sleeper! What could be more of a sleeper than a lime green GT/CS.

HP numbers are good and all, but they're like asking someone how much they can bench. What difference does it make, if I can still kick your ass.

BTW, I drove the seafoam green car. The engine starts right up, purrs like a kitten, no smoke, the tranny shifts very nicely, the suspension doesn't have the usual sqeaks and groans that a 40 year old car has, and it stops nicely. Those bias ply tires are a little bumpy, but I'm sure once you've driven it a while and they heat up they're better.

Martin's a class act and knows his Mustangs.

That's great, Joe!! I'm glad that you met my friend, Martin, and that you can vouch that he's a "good guy", plus his cars are pretty decent too ... these were the cars that I've been telling everyone about:

...I bought the car pictured below from Martin about two years ago. My wife & I flew to LA, picked it up from him and drove it 475 miles home on the same day without a hitch! We've taken it to every local show and on many cruises with no problems.

Martin is the "real deal"! If you're looking to buy - count on honesty, excellent dialog and a smooth transaction. With us, he took every measure to assure our satisfaction in advance. :-)

Tell me about the black '68 GT/CS that's coming up soon. Tell me everything. And tell me where you are in the States.

ISO well behaved, dependable, and determined CS.

Hey JBart, maybe this car is for you, and maybe you can save it from any potential "highschool kid that won't take care of it" ...

All kidding aside, I remember when I was looking for a Cal Special myself a few years back I came across a real nice black one, but I was outbid by a gentleman with deep pockets who wanted to give it to his "highschool kid" as his first car ... I hope he's been taking care of it ...

...Thanks to some of those "high school kids", there's occasionally some pretty affordable project cars available for the passioned who otherwise couldn't buy a restored one.

I think the trend is way more toward preservation today vs 20 years ago. What we need is a new generation of articles written like the ones Arlie unearthed from the '80s & '90s...

While I'm down there with Martin maybe I'll just buy this seafoam car too. (Why not?) Donations appreciated. (Dream on) The only bad thing I do is race on the viaduct...but that's with the '08.

There is one very responsible 16 yr old here on the forum with a '68 CS purchased for him by his dad. I offered him money for the car, and he said no. I offered him gold rings and diamonds, and he said no. My point: you have to pick and choose your buyer carefully.

ISO well behaved, dependable, and determined CS.
