One of my top favorite Mustangs along with '71 Boss 351, '65 GT350 and '67 GT500. But the '68.5 R-Code has the benefit of being more sedate looking and 10,000 people a day won't ask you if it's "a real one" because many don't know what they are. I hope it's real and you can snatch it up. Good luck!

Off topic, and I apologize, but I did learn something last night watching Barrett Jackson... All along I thought when someone mentioned "CJ" they were referring to some Jeep engine..... Now I know it means Cobra-Jet...

I'm such a loser....

I'm not so sure some of the values thrown out here are correct. I would think a mint one in all original shape may bring $50K. The Fastbacks are still the desirable body and you can find real nice ones of those for 55-60K these days. Of course I'm speaking of every day values and not speaking of Barrett Jackson prices.
Looking fwd to seeing some of the pics you have. Would be great if you uncovered a true
R code.

Lol wareagle!

OK … the plot thickens and gets worse. I spoke with the guy who apparently has “first-dibs” on the car. (He is a friend of the owner’s father.) He said he’s really a Chevy guy, but was considering the Mustang because of the big-block. He said he’s not sure if he’s really interested, (which is why he contacted my Mustang buddy) but was going to have one more look because the first look was very quick, and the car is crammed in a shed so close to another car he could not even walk around it.

The bad: the car appears to have been hacked/built for racing. It has a fiber-glass “flip” front cap and the door handles have been shaved. Who knows – it may not even have an interior. He told me he does not think it’s not a true 428 car - even though he did not see the VIN?? I am going to see if I can go with him this weekend to have a look - verify the VIN . It might be a real basket-case, but still worth a look if it turns-out to be a true R-code. Sorry - was too busy last night to upload the pics...

Thanks all!

I would pass on it even it is an R code. Unless it had the original drivetrain and all the CJ specific parts. Otherwise it'll cost you a fortune to attempt to restore it.
