Modified GT/CS

Location: Bishop, California
Price: 59,900

Modified '68 GT/CS. At that price, I would rather have a bone stock concours car. In my opinion, the '68 GT/CS was already modified from the factory. Leave well enough alone. If you are going to modify a Mustang this much, why not just start with a plain Jane car. But hey, it is his car, his investment.

Strange that the owner would invest so much work & money in modifications to make the car the way he wants it, and then turn around and sell it. Unfortunately, for the seller, I only know of concourse level GT/CS or HCS that have sold in that price stratosphere.
JMHO.

I don't know, judging from the recent Barrett-Jackson (and other) auctions, customs and modified cars are bringing strong money. Quality of craftsmanship must show throughout though.
All in all, this looks like a pretty well done car (from the pictures).

I do like it, but agree with the original poster about the starting platform. However, I would have started with a fastback though.

It does look pretty well done and the owner may get his asking price. Just not my cup of tea for a '68 GTCS. A buyer may pay the amount because he/she likes the mods done and does not really care about the provenance of the car.

I sold my GNS/GT/CS for $35k and it had a lot more high performance stuff than this car. As said earlier the quality of the modifications really count. I also believe that restomodded cars can sell at prices similar or even more than full concurs cars.

The owner of my car has beat the snot out of it and it "takes a lickin and keeps on tickin".

This car look nice and IMO a value of around $30k to $35k is closer to its value.
