https://bringatrailer.com/listing/19...nia-special-8/

This 1968 Mustang GT/CS is finished in Sunlit Gold over a Nugget Gold interior, and it is one of 4,118 examples ordered with the California Special equipment package for the model year. Power comes from a 289ci V8 paired with a three-speed automatic transmission, and additional equipment includes a 2.79:1 rear axle, 14″ GT steel wheels, front disc brakes, power steering, a fiberglass rear spoiler, black side stripes, driving lamps, faux side scoops, front bucket seats, a center console, air conditioning, a tilt-away steering wheel, and a vintage-look radio. The car was initially delivered to Cambell Ford of Compton, California, and is said to have been featured in the 1981 film Goiní All the Way. A refurbishment was completed in 2008, and the car was acquired by the selling dealer in January 2022. This California Special coupe is offered in Utah with a Deluxe Marti Report, a calendar featuring the car, a Goiní All the Way movie poster, and a clean Louisiana title.

The car was repainted in its factory shade of Sunlit Gold with black GT/CS side stripes as part of a reported rotisserie refurbishment completed in the 2008. Features include a fiberglass rear spoiler, faux side scoops, driving lamps, hood vents, exposed hood locks, Thunderbird-sourced taillights, reverse lamps, a dual exit exhaust, and chrome trim on the bumpers, rocker panels, window surrounds, and driver-side mirror. A bulb in the left taillight was replaced in preparation for the sale, and the seller states the body was paint-corrected during their ownership.

Chrome 14″ GT steel wheels wear deluxe covers and are wrapped in white-line tires. The car is equipped with power steering and power-assisted front disc brakes with rear drums. The brakes were reportedly serviced under current ownership.

The cabin features front bucket seating and a rear bench upholstered in Nugget Gold vinyl with a matching lower dashboard, door panels, and black carpeting. Interior amenities include manually-operated windows, air condoning, a full-length center console, a glovebox, vent windows, lap belts for all occupants, and a vintage-look radio. The interior was reportedly retrimmed under current ownership.

The two-spoke tilt-away steering wheel features a chrome horn ring and fronts a 120-mph speedometer and gauges for fuel level, amperage, coolant temperate, and oil pressure. The five-digit odometer shows 42k miles, approximately 50 of which have been added under current ownership. Total mileage is unknown.
