Nice one on Hemmings Auction

Location: Cumberland, RI
Price: OBO

Looks pretty nice to me. Well done restoration on an early one.

https://www.hemmings.com/auction/196...ign=2020-11-20

The front half of the rear axle housing is red oxide. I guess someone misunderstood that only the pumpkin was painted red oxide.

Engine compartment looks nice except for the orange tops of the shocks. It was a 2V but now a 4V according to the write-up. Inline fuel filter looks bad.

Right fog light looks a tad higher than the left one which looks a little crooked. With the 2/12/68 build date, it probably came with the Marchals as my 2/8/68 car did. The chin spoiler does not look bad but...

Someone tightened down the console insert way too much. While not original, I like the steering wheel. Trunk mat could use some help.

I would not kick it out of my garage for taking up space.

Both of the fog lights look higher than correct to me.

A super nice driver. The glitches are easy fixes.

They have the Shelby bases on top of the GT/CS pedestals.

This seems to be Randy Pomfret's car. He posted the Marti a little while back.

That is exactly what I thought I was seeing, but I didn't quite believe anyone would have done that.

Sold today for 43,260 which includes a $2,060 buyers fee. Sounds about right for a really nice driver with apparently, not to many expensive issues that a purist would want to correct.

Dang, that is nearly exactly how my GT/CS is going to look some day. Mine was built 6 days earlier, but released on the same day. 02/18/68
