Smile 1968 California Special, Blue.

Location: Las vegas, Nevada
Price: $25,000 OBO

I'm reluctantly selling my Mustang GT/CS.

She's a great example and was a SoCal car all her life until two years ago.

I'm moving back to England next year and have decided to sell her as I don't have to space to store her and certainly won't take her with me.

I'm pretty firm on the price, which is less than I paid. She is not on Ebay yet as I wanted to see if an enthusiast or collector may want her. There are guys here in town who want to sell her for me but I have plenty of time and don't need to pay anybody commission.

She's up for grabs. Email me for more photos and details.

Good luck!!

Robert

hey Robert,
your car looks like a sister to mine......one thing that stood out for me is that your tailight lenses are mismatched like mine. You have one darker one and one lighter one..unless its just the angle or lighting? If they are mismatched and you want to do a one for one swap, lmk
The other thing that stood out is that the bezels around the tailights are black vs. chrome. Same as mine! Could that be a Gulfstream thing?

The black border on the bezels is incorrect for CS cars. New ones come painted that way. I removed the bezels, used lacquer thinner & 0000 steel wool to remove the paint. Takes about 20 minutes each.
The second photo shows the LED bulb brightness that I got from West Coast Classic Cougar. Be sure you order the Flasher that is used for the LED bulbs.

I'll have a look at the lights. I never noticed but I never really looked. Thank you for pointing this out. If there's a difference then I'be happy to swap, we could take good quality pics to determine a match.

What do you mean, Light Bezels? I wonder if this was painted over..... This is a genuine CS.

The black trim around the tail lights. Under the black is chrome. The reproductions are painted black because they are actually a T-bird part.
When Ford originally used them for the GT/CS and '68 Shelby they left them chrome.

I would suspect the original chrome bezels that retain the tail light lenses were deteriorated over time, and were replaced. New replacements all come with the painted edges.
Not questioning the authenticity of your car- just pointing out an appearance glitch. Looks like a nice CS. Would like to see interior photos.

Robert,
sounds good. I will await your exam on light lenses. Since I'm putting LED's in my CS, then I should probably opt for your darker lens to mitigate the obvious brightness -- as seen in Neil's photo!!
Either way, we can discuss further if your lenses are indeed mismatched.

Thanks for all the nice thoughts. I was overseas over the last couple of weeks and will get some photos on here... I do intend to change the rims. I have the correct rims.
Personally, if I could keep the Mustang, I would freshen it up with a good quality re-paint. With this investment, one would have a really nice example. The current paint is dull and is about twenty years old now.
Regarding the rear light surrounds.. These look very recent. There's no way a 40 plus year old car would have then in like new condition. One of lens is darker than the other.. I'm happy to swap.. Lighter or darker, I don't mind as long as there are no cracks.

You are correct. These are like new replacements.
Thanks for the heads up.
