Wanted: 68' GT/CS or HCS project

Location: Houston, Texas

Howdy folks!

I'm searching for a '68 GT/CS or an HCS project car to work on. My spending limit is about $6000, but I'd rather not spend more thank $5000 or so. Mainly looking for a good and straight body. Some rust is fine but I'd prefer a car without serious body rot. I'd prefer a complete car, but a rolling shell is fine as well if the price is right. Preferred options would be highland green paint and a manual transmission, other options aren't terribly important.

I'd prefer it be located close to Houston or Austin (I'm a college student and am currently studying in Austin, but my family is from Houston), but would consider cars in Louisiana, Oklahoma, or Kansas.

If you have a lead or a car to sell, please private message me and we can go from there. Thanks!

I live in the woodlands, but would be willing to drive a bit to check out a car.

Here's our thread about the Highland Green car.
http://californiaspecial.com/forums/...ad.php?t=10207

I looked at a project in Bryan a few years ago but I have no idea if it's still there. It was 6-cylinder Lime Gold car.
It was just SW of Coulter Field Airport on 190/21.

That's the third listing for the Vegas one in the last couple of months. Fourth if you count the guy on the west coast. It keeps selling at $8500 and then re-listing. I believe before ebay the guy wanted $9000 and was less than forth coming with info. Something's definitely fishy. There have been several threads now.

Yeah, that car was a little rough!
I looked on GoogleEarth and it seems to be gone but they may have just moved it.

I will try to get out this weekend and look at a GT/CS that is nearby; its a little rough and has been sitting for a while. If I can get out there, I will get some pics for you and everyone else. Its a non-running 289, 4 Speed, Candy Apple Red with black interior. I have the Marti if anyone wants to see it; I will post it in the Marti thread when I get home tonight. It's in the back 40 behind a small town classic car dealer, he knows what it is and may or may not be interested in selling; I couldn't get a straight answer before.

Really? Could you post/send me the address? I'm in Austin until the 18th because of college. Checking out a mustang that close wouldn't be a problem.
