When Ford debuted the Mustang on April 14th of 1964, it was an instant hit with the public. Between the 1967 and 1968 model years, Ford noticed that California was selling more Mustangs than any other state in the United States. To reward their California customers for all of the great sales, Ford wanted to give them their very own special edition Mustang which became the GT/CS California Special and was based on the 1967 Shelby GT500 Mustang prototype. Ford only produced 4,118 examples of the 1969 Mustang GT/CS. This 1968 Ford Mustang GT/CS is a nice, driver-quality example of these hard-to-find classics. The correct, Lime Gold (Green) exterior shines very well, but does present with a few defects in the paint. The GT/CS received a number of cosmetic touches taken from the 1967 GT500 Prototype car including: Shelby-style front fog lamps, Shelby side air scoops, Shelby GT500 taillamps, Shelby Hood pins, Shelby quarter extensions and fiberglass trunklid. The Lime Gold exterior is complimented nicely by the period-correct, Ford GT wheels wrapped in raised white-letter, Road Hugger Radial GT tires. The Black and Ivory Gold interior is in good condition with the carpet and painted surfaces showing some age. The Black bucket seats are in excellent condition and free of any defects. Powering this Mustang GT/CS is its 302 cubic inch V8 backed by its C4, 3-speed, Automatic transmission. Both the engine and transmission perform just as they should. The 302 V8 benefits from a mild cam, Offenhauser intake manifold, Mallory distributor, Holley 4-barrel carburetor, and long tube headers. This Mustang GT/CS delivers a fantastic, loping exhaust note that is sure to put a smile on your face as well as the people watching you drive by. This 1968 Mustang is nicely equipped with options such as: power steering, variable speed wipers, AM/FM stereo, and hood-integrated marker lights. If you are in the market for a great driving, rare Mustang that is sure to stand out from the rest, then you are not going to want to miss out on this nice, 1968 Ford Mustang GT/CS.
