GT/CS 390 Auto GT Aqua (Black vinyl top)

Location: Oklahoma City, OK
Price: $45,000 OBO

Gents,

With the new addition to my family back in 2016 I have found that I do not have the time to enjoy the CS like I used to. This car deserves more attention than I can give, and I think it is time to allow someone else the pleasure of owning her. This is Jason's Gulfstream Aqua CS which has been a topic here many times in the past. She is an absolute beauty of a car and still turns heads wherever I drive her. If you would like additional / better pictures please let me know. If you are interested please PM me first and then we can change over to e-mail / phone. I will be posting for sale adds on a couple other sites and will have it for sale locally as well.

In the last couple of months I have had the low compression issue fixed with a rebuild of the upper half of the block. This car is 100% different and runs like she should. I had the heads pulled, cleaned and milled. All of the internals were replaced with new parts, guides, seats, valves, retainers and springs. In the process of pulling the heads I could not find the definitive VIN stamp on the motor. However, when looking at the date codes on each head and the layout of the manifold bolt pattern I confirmed that the car has an original set of GT heads. This information confirms that the motor is most likely the original, making it a numbers matching car. The information about my heads can be found here.


Options:
California Special, Black Vinyl Roof, Canadian Non-Emission system, GT Equipment Group, C-6, Console, Power Disk Brakes, Power Steering, AM Radio, Interior Decor Group, Wide Oval Tires, (added-mini TAC, modern AC compressor and Polyglas tires).

All,

I've dropped the price a little. I will be listing this locally through the Mustang Club as well. I am open to input and offers, so let me know!

RE: the low compression issue. An old school remedy was to fill the tank with Amoco high test gas and take the car on a few hour drive at highway speed (60-70MPH). Then recheck your compressions- you may be pleasantly surprised. (An inexpensive valve job.)

PS: The car is a BEAUTY. (So many cars, so little time.)

Why sell such a beautiful car? I'd put the rugrat up for adoption!
