Description: In mid-February 1968, California begun to market a factory-built, limited-edition Mustang, called the GT/CS, or "California Special". The hope was for a targeted production run of 5,000; however, only 4118 were made, including 251 units that were remarketed in Denver, Colorado. Yes, this is a barn find except this one is in my own barn! I’ve owned this car for 27 years and it has been exclusively stored until 2 years ago when I decided to finally make it a driver for limited use on weekends and about town. For sale is a 1968 Ford Mustang California Special VIN 8R01J167131. This is the real deal, a GT model, and has been incrementally restored in a private garage with an eye towards making it authentic but drivable on today’s non-leaded gas and roads so minor modifications were made along the way; lots of new NOS or reproduction parts were used. The body and interior are restored to stock appearance. Only 4118 of the Mustang GT/CS were produced and less than 500 with the GT configuration, even fewer in this color combo. This car is really special as it is has the original 302 engine with a 4 speed transmission plus a Magnaflow exhaust. Under the hood you find some improvements that make this car more drivable on unleaded gas with an HEI ignition, Edelbrock 4bbl carburetor, manifold, roller rockers and aluminum heads. The front suspension has also been beefed-up and lowered about an inch with GT springs and stiffer roll bar plus new BF Goodrich T/A tires and power brakes; she handles and sounds like a dream. This California Special Mustang is ready to roll and is a blast to drive. These are special Mustangs the GT version with the 302 engine and 4 speed tranny being the most special and the price will only go up as they age. The car is presently being stored in Missoula Montana. For additional photos and information on this 1968 Ford Mustang email me at barrynkaye@gmail.com.
