Looks like a real pretty one. Fairly priced if not a little low. Beautiful undercarriage.

My GT/CS looked just like that with a black interior. But mine was a total repaint over a Anniversary Gold car with a black vinyl top. Note the recessed reflectors of an early car. I also noticed the taillight cutout with no bar in the opening in the trunk shot. Mine was the same way. Wonder if alot of the early cars had that removed and later on they figured out that it could remain?

Wonder what the VIN is on this car? What a gorgeous restoration! So nice it may be over restored but that is for Neil and Marty to weigh in.

Iím definitely not a fan of the pop rivets in the trunk.

Fairly close though. If it were mine, the first things I would do is replace the radiator with a stock one and put in the cardboard inserts in the back of the tail light panel to hide those pop rivets! Quick fixes.

Lots of good features on this car. The glitches are easy fixes. My only concern would be what it looks like under the vinyl top. Plus, I'd want to see the Marti Report.

I like most of what the owner did to this car.
Shelby rear panel color treatment is fine.
GT exhaust tips are a nice feature.

Air cleaner and valve covers are not 1968 Ford Mustang. 1966? Canada?
I do not see a brake booster, some kind of manual disc brake conversion?
Accessory gauge panel under the dash would have to go.
Not wild about the radiator either, fan shroud?

Oh yeah. I forgot about the worst part. Another easy fix.

No, to trained eyes it is not close!
