Description
 
There was a time in Ford's history when state and regional dealer organizations would use their influence to create special models for customers. The popularity of each edition depended on the resourcefulness and creativity of the area dealers and how much pull they had with Ford. Most specials, such as the '67 Indy Pace-setter, boasted nothing more than a tape stripe, but in some cases, Ford was convinced to build distinctive models with many nonstock features to reward successful sales districts. The uniquely styled '68 California Special (also known as the GT/CS) is the regional edition to end all regional editions with its Shelby-esque appointments and West Coast go-go allure. In 1968, Ford was inspired to design and produce 4,118 copies of a limited edition coupe for its West Coast dealers. Based on Carroll Shelby's "Little Red" '67 show car hardtop, the GT/CS was an attractive combination of Mustang GT and GT350/500 parts. Its development was spearheaded by Southern California District Sales Manager Lee Grey. This 1968 Ford Mustang GT/CS retains its original 289 V-8 engine and C4 automatic transmission. It was restored in 1994 and still shows very well. The Candy Apple Red exterior and white vinyl hard top are in great condition. Along with all of its original sheet metal, it also has all of the original California Special options present. This example is rust-free and is accompanied by its Marti report and original California black plate,s as well as the GT/CS registration book. It has the Lucas lights with the correct pedestals, lower console, original AM radio, and dual exhaust with Flowmasters and quad tips. This California special is a constant show winner and is stored in a climate controlled environment. Everything works mechanically and electrically. If you are looking for a clean, solid, and desirable Mustang, this is it.
