1968 Ford Mustang California SpecialIf you're interested, you most likely know the history of the California Special but, for those unaware, there were approximately 4,100 of these cars produced. They were all manufactured at the Ford plant in San Jose, California back in the day and were producedexclusively for California dealers. ( Note; there were roughly 200 cars built for the Colorado market).... good,rust free examples are difficult to come by.
This Cal Special received a very well done ground up restoration on a rust free car a few years ago and has been driven sparingly since. It is finished in its correctWimbledonWhite. The car was produced with a blue/aqua interior and thankfully when restored, it was changed to its current black. It is a factory AC car with power steering and power brakes. The car is equipped with its original Automatic transmission, though its original 289 was replaced with a GREAT running 302. The car is listed in the GT/CS registry.
The registrar for the GT/CS registry recently inspected the car and found it remarkably correct and found the car to be in exceptional over-all condition.
The car starts and runs perfectly, cold and warm. The engine fires instantly at any temp. Transmission shift is excellent as is brake pedal feel and modulation. The car tracks perfectly with no steering play. There are no leaks. The car can be driven straight away and can be driven anywhere with absolute confidence. I would have no reservation what-so-ever driving the car anywhere, right now! Everything on the car works though the AC will need a partial charge. The cars original radio has been replaced with a more modern unit though it still retains the look of the original.
This is an exceptionally nice example of a very rare Mustang that needs nothing to be enjoyed straight away. It can be HAPPILY driven and proudly shown AS IS.....There is simply no way to replicate this car for anywhere near the selling price.....not even close.
Inspections are encouraged and welcomed as there is simply nothing to hide. Listed at $31,500 U.S and worth every penny. Get me close. I reserve the right to end this auction at any time. Thanks for looking..... this is a VERY nice car !
