Classic Car Overview

The California Special Mustang (GTCS) was a limited production run only produced in 1968 for the Ford California dealer network. Only 4,118 units were produced during this limited run of Mustangs. These cars featured many distinct exterior enhancements meant to distinguish these cars from other standard Mustang coupes. They featured blacked out grills, rectangular fog lamps, chrome hood latches, white body striping, duck tail trunks, side scoops, hood scoops, cursive California Special badging, and a unique Cougar/Shelby taillight pattern that make this a very unique car. This is a rare car, and there are MANY imposters. Our CS comes with an authentic Marty (https://www.martiauto.com/martireports.cfm) report verifying the authenticity of this vehicle. Many of these vehicles have been modified over the years, losing their original engines, transmissions, and other valuable components. This CS has the original engine, original transmission, and many other original parts. It has been upgraded in order to drive very comfortably and reliably over the years, but every consideration has been taken to keep the stock look and feel of this Mustang.
I purchased this GT/CS in 2014 from a in Honolulu Hawaii. The previous owner had purchased the car from someone in California who we believe was the second owner. The car under the previous owner underwent several upgrades including the first engine rebuild and cylinder boring that left her at .030 over the stock 289ci. I have many of the receipts and pictures from that project done in Hawaii. Classic Auto Air AC was installed in Hawaii, as well as disc brakes in the front. The AC blows warm now and needs a recharge.
Since I have owned the car I have done many extensive projects as well. In 2015, I installed new steering components, front brakes and full suspension (front and rear) components as well as a rust repair under the battery tray. In 2020, she underwent a total engine rebuild (no cylinder boring just clean and polish), transmission overhaul, new rear brakes, new master cylinder, new brake lines, new exhaust, new radiator, and an engine compartment paint and refurb. I also removed the CD player and ugly footwell speakers and replaced with stock AM radio (inoperable, looks only) and NOS foot kick panels. New tires in 2020. Most all engine and under hood components are NOS parts. New battery. Lucas fog lights are in perfect shape as well. I installed sequential turn signal lights under the hood scoops.
The car has some exterior blemishes, driver side door has various dings in the door that previous owners did a terrible job fixing. Interior is in great shape.
Mechanically the car is in excellent shape after my 2020 project. She runs cool in the hot summer, and will crank over no problem after sitting for months...
I'm super proud of this car and the work I've personally done over the years maybe too proud, but I don't have any urgency to let her go and I want to make sure she ends up in the right hands. I'm asking for $45,000 but I will consider offers that are reasonable. This is a great car, it is in the California Special registry and I have the Marty report as well.
