Default my car...

Sooo I saw the post about someone getting bagged on for thinking their car was a gt.. for a while I thought my car was a gt but I guess I dont know what classifys it as a gt...

VIN #
8R01C145861

Is the vin all I need to have to know to see if theres anything special about my car?

Guess im just trying to figure out if at one point my car was special since I really dont know much about it and vintage mustangs in general.

IIRC during the model year 1968, the GT package required a 4V carbureted V8. Since the "C" in your VIN represents a 2V carbureted 289 , it is unlikely that your car was a factory built GT model. As for the rest of the data, contact Marti Autoworks in Arizona for a "Marti Report" which would provide you with the statistical details of your car's build taken from Ford's production records. Most folks here consider the Deluxe report money well spent. If you want the full deal including a reproduction data plate and window sticker as well as a "one of ..X.." analysis, the Elite Report is also an option.
