1968 GT/CS J-code 4 speed (Project)

I am selling my 1968 GT/CS J-code 4 speed manual project car. This is a TRUE GT/CS and its verified by the Marti report. I bought this car to restore it back to its original glory but unforeseen circumstances have forced me to sell it and will not continue with the restoration already started. This one of the 218 J-code 4 speed GT/CS that were produced in 1968,so they are very rare. The original color is Lime Gold with Ivy Gold interior. Its a non-GT equipped car. I purchased this Mustang without the engine but it has the original 4 speed manual transmission in need of rebuilt and out of car. I bought a correct J-code 302 engine from a member of this forum and engine is in running condition. According to Marti report the car is equipped as follows

California Special
Extra cooling package
Four speed wide ratio manual transmission
F70X14 Wide oval tires
AM radio
Deluxe wheel covers

This is a ROUGH project that previous owner had for 20 years but never got to restore. It has not been involved in any accidents but its rusty and needs a total restoration.I took it to a Mustang restoration shop in Florida and all the floors and torque boxes,seat bases,frame rail repair is already professionally done. The car needs the following body work: New radiator support, fender aprons,cowl, rear quarter skins, trunk floor and rear tail-light panel. Grille,hood doors and trunk lid need replacement. Shock towers are ok.

The interior is there but needs a total refurbishing,all glass is there.

I can sell this car with or without the engine but It deserves to be restored back to original condition: J-code engines are difficult to find since they were only made in 1968.

I also have correct Lucas fog lights with pedestals that will include with sale of the car.

This GT/CS is in Florida and I can get anyone transportation cost estimate.

This is a very rare and desirable California Special and only 962 J-code GT/CS were manufactured.

Pictures of work completed can be e mailed and Marti report can be faxed to any interested party

Price: $6,700 with correct J-code(302 4v) complete engine including carburetor. Also will include Lucas fog lights with pedestals.

Post here or send me a PM with any questions you might have
