Lot #358 - This is a 1968 Ford Mustang High Country Special with 51,000 original miles. This car was built in San Jose and is one of 251 cars produced in 1968 with the High Country Special option. It is finished in Wimbledon White with red vinyl standard bucket seats and comes equipped with the original shoulder harness belts. It is powered by its original matching-numbers 289ci 2V engine and a C4 select-shift automatic transmission.

The restoration included stripping the body to bare metal and repainting to the original color with original stripes and decals, rebuilding the original engine and transmission, and replacing the gas tank. New exhaust, fuel lines, new tires and brake cylinders were installed, and the leaf springs were replaced with the goal of keeping the car as original as possible. The interior was gone over with new carpet and new vinyl, but was kept mostly original. The car comes with pictures from the restoration, list of High Country Special production showing it is the second car produced in 1968.

This actual car was featured on the California Special/High Country Special ad when Ford announced the High Country Special to the area dealers at Continental Speedway on July 11, 1968. Some brochures from 1968 and some articles are also included, along with hubcaps, original tool kit and Marti Report.

Nice. (I do notice the trim rings are missing from the Argent wheels.)
