You are looking at a stunning 1968 Mustang GT California Special. This car is absolutely beautiful and a real head turner. It has taken a few Silver awards in some Ford Shows and always wins in local Car shows. This car is absolutely beautiful. The paint is incredible. It came equipped from the factory as a California Special with 6.95x14-1 Tires, Console, Power Disc Brakes, Power Steering, AM radio, tinted glass, Deluxe Seat Belts, Deluxe Wheel covers. Lime gold is the Original Color and is still the color.

This car shows very well and is a beautiful example of a rare Mustang. There were only 4,118 California Specials made in 1968. This car spent most of its life in San Francisco. Itís been a dry California Car all of its life.

This car is really something to be proud of. The car has absolutely no rust. All original body panels. Itís never had any metal replacement that I can tell. Quarters are in amazing condition, floor pans etc. Itís just a fantastic car.

The car is powered by a strong running and great sounding 289 V8 with a 4v Carburetor in front of a smooth shifting C4 automatic transmission. This is all hooked to the original 9Ē rearend.

The car steers effortlessly with the Power Steering and allows you to drive down the road cruising with one hand on the wheel and the other laying across the passenger seat. The car stops great thanks to the power disc brakes.

The engine is a 289 V8 with a 4V Carb and intake manifold. The engine is said to be the original. It has the original exhaust manifolds. The distributor has been updated as well and the carburetor. An original Carb does come with the car.

The stay cool and will drive anywhere. I wouldnít be afraid to take this car anywhere from 10 miles away to 2000 miles away.

The body of the car really is in excellent condition. The paint is fresh, professionally done and looks great. The paint was also done right. Taken was meticulously taken apart and sprayed right.

The trunk area is beautiful. Underneath of the car is straight and solid. Torque boxes and frame rails are immaculate. Floor pans are dry and nice. Floor supports are not dented up they looking excellent.

The car has a newer exhaust system.

The hood latches work great. Everything on the car works great. Fuel gauge, temp gauge, speedometer, all gauges work.

The interior of the car is in excellent shape and is original. The car is in great condition. The headliner is also in great condition. The seats are original and do show some signs of wear. The console is original and could stand to be freshened up. The console is also missing the sliding garage door but those can be purchased easily and are an easy install.

The car is a stunning example of a 1968 Mustang. Itís a show car for sure but also likes to be driven. The paint has a couple very minor chips. Iím talking just a very few small ones. No dents or scratches.
