Red X-Code in the San Diego Area

Location: Lakeside, California
Price: $35,000

Check out the Marti - this thing is loaded. It was a dealer's demonstrator.

Originally Raven Black with a red deluxe bench seat interior, and wire wheel covers. That would make for a very unique looking car.

Is "Red Knitted Décor Bench Seat" the same material as "Dark Red Comfortweave Bench Seat", just a different shade of red? The Red Knitted is coded as 9D and the Dark Red Comfortweave is 9B.

Hmm. 390 replaced with a 5.0, A/C is missing. Would require a close inspection to make sure the new Red paint job is not covering up any sins. Also check the shock towers for cracks. The torque of a 390 made them susceptible to cracking.
Visual appearance of the car looks great.

Those rear springs sure are stretched about as far as they'll go!

Comfort weave and knitted seat upholstery, were interchanged over the years. 9B would be 'Blue'.

Black with Red deluxe bench seat would be very cool. I would do red stripes, if it were mine.

Thanks Scott, that makes a lot more sense. My code table has a few errors that are now corrected.

It looks like the only Comfortweave/Knitted options were Black, Blue, Red, Parchment. Those colors were also the only options for the bench seat. And all bench seats were Comfortweave?

2A-6A* Black Vinyl Buckets
2B-6B* Blue Vinyl Buckets

8A-9A* Black Comfortweave Bench
8B-9B* Blue Comfortweave Bench

8V-9V* Parchment Comfortweave Bench

I checked my Mustang by the Numbers book, by Kevin Marti. Yes, all 1968 bench seats are comfortweave. Made a correction above, "U" not "V" for Parchment.
