S-Code GT/CS Partial Shell

Location: Vancouver, WA
Price: Auction

There isn't much left of this one. It needs a roof and a front clip. It's also a perfect candidate for VIN fraud. I asked the seller to send me the rest of the VIN so I can add it to the registry. Hopefully we'll save someone from being ripped off.

From the eBay Ad
1968 Ford Mustang, California Special, GT, 390, Automatic

As can be seen she is a little on the rough side! However, she is very solid with very little rust. There is a little bit near the gas pedal and the upper dash. It is still a savable car for those who want to save a piece of history or showcase their talent. As can be seen in the photos, the Marti Report has already been purchased. What you see is what you get!

Sold on our Washington State wrecker's bill of sale ONLY! We are a licensed auto recycler in the State of Washington. The bill of sale / document you get from us will state all the particulars needed to retitle this vehicle in Oregon, Washington and many other states. If you have questions, call Todd for details. Ebay won't let us put the phone number so you will have to find us online.

Many other pictures available. If you have questions, please ask before you bid. You can ask through Ebay but calling Todd would be best.

*********SOLD NO RESERVE. VEHICLE STORE AVAILABLE AT NO COST FOR UP TO 60 DAYS WHILE TRANSPORTATION ARRANGEMENT ARE MADE.***********
We are a large wrecking yard here in Vancouver, Washington. Providing customers with good quality parts since 1989.

Located in the Pacific Northwest and established in 1989, ALL AMERICAN CLASSICS, Inc. is a 20 acre wrecking yard that is parting out over 2,500 vehicles ranging in years from 1930's to 2000's. Please contact us if there is anything you would like to see listed on eBay! Keep in mind that our road crews do not use salt on our roads during ice and snow so our frames and other parts stay nice and solid --- we do NOT have heavy rust like other parts of the country.

You're right. That one just screams "Rebody".

As far as the VIN I would say it would be any where from 158600 to 158620

We have a VIN for 621 which has a built date of April 29th. Seeing this 390 car was built on the 19th I would say its in the teens. Anyone up for order 20 Marti Reports?

VIN on inner fender is definitely handmade. No sign of dash vin Impossible to register even if re-body without that dash vin

It’s appears this GT/CS has seen its last days.

Agreed. Even for the price for 'free'. You would be upside down before you got it finished. Even if a person had the skills of Neil Hoppe.
