1968 GT/CS SeaFoam Green S code 390 4sp

Location: Canada
Price: BID

This Ford Mustang GT is one of 4,118 examples ordered with 1968-only California Special equipment, and was built in San Jose, California, for sale at Dunlop Ford of Lethbridge, Alberta. The car was acquired by its current owner in 2011 and subsequently underwent a refurbishment that included a repaint in its factory Sea Foam Green. Power comes from a replacement 390ci V8 paired with a four-speed manual transmission, and equipment includes chrome 14″ GT wheels, a rear spoiler, faux side scoops, fog lights, black vinyl upholstery, and an AM radio. This California Special coupe is offered on dealer consignment in Canada with refurbishment records and photos, a reproduction window sticker, an Elite Marti report, and Alberta registration.

The car was mounted to a rotisserie for body repairs and refinished in its factory shade of Sea Foam Green as part of the refurbishment. Details include white GT/CS stripes, a special fuel cap, a retractable antenna, hood vents and exposed locks, a fiberglass rear spoiler, quarter panel extensions, and a revised taillight panel.

Chrome-finished 14″ GT steel wheels with beauty rings are wrapped in F70-15 Firestone Wide Oval raised white-letter tires. Stopping is handled by power-assisted front disc and rear drum brakes.

The cabin features front bucket seats and a rear bench trimmed in black vinyl along with a matching dashboard, door panels, and carpets, the latter of which are protected with Mustang-branded floor mats. Equipment includes a glovebox, an AM radio, lap belts, and a heater.

The optional Deluxe steering wheel frames a 120-mph speedometer and a tachometer as well as fuel and coolant temperature gauges. The five-digit odometer shows 55k miles, approximately 400 of which have been added by the current owner. Total mileage is unknown.

The 390ci V8 is said to use a replacement block that was fitted early in the carís life. The engine features a four-barrel carburetor and was rated at 325 horsepower and 427 lb-ft of torque when new.

Power is sent to the rear wheels through a four-speed manual transmission. Additional photos of the underside can be viewed in the gallery below.

A reproduction window sticker and an Elite Marti report are included in the sale and list colors and equipment, production statistics, and a build date of July 18, 1968 before initial delivery to Dunlop Ford of Lethbridge, Alberta.

There are no beauty rings on the 15Ē wheels. What are the window cranks from?

The aftermarket chrome wheels are 15", all chrome. No beauty rings.
I put a set on the Highland Green CS I did a few years ago.
