Description
Lot #420 - Only 4,118 of these extremely rare limited edition cars were produced during 1968. Documents from Ford and Kevin Marti verifying the authenticity of this vehicle are included. These were the only Mustang coupes to come from the factory with Carroll Shelby body parts including Shelby fiberglass rear deck lid and quarter extensions, quarter-turn hood locks, Thunderbird/Shelby taillights, Shelby brake scoops and Lucas fog lamps. This car came equipped from the factory with a "J" Code 302 4-barrel engine, dual exhaust, power disc brakes, power steering, factory air conditioning, vinyl top and automatic transmission. This GT/CS was restored during the period of October 2002 through July 2003. Restoration included new performance suspension, transmission rebuild, new custom paint, many new engine parts, exhaust, interior, headliner, carpet, vinyl top, gauges, seals, radio air conditioning rebuild, brakes, etc. Photographs and receipts documenting much of the restoration are included with the car. The drivetrain is numbers matching and original to the car except for the heads which come from a later year 302 engine. The engine block is correct. The rare Sea Foam Green base/clear paint is the original exterior color. Ivy Gold is the original interior color for the car. The rare color combinations, unique California Special body parts and beautiful chrome plated Shelby 10-spoke-style wheels helped this car to win a First Place trophy at the Sept. 2003 Annual Carey Paul Ford/Tara Mustang Club Regional Ford Car Show.
