There are a lot of things incorrect but a good looking modified car. The large HCS badge gets me.

This car is for sale again. Now it's $55,000.

Seller Description
1968 Ford Mustang HCS

1 of 251 made. Sold only in Colorado.

Marti Report (please see pictures)

These were made from extra 1968 GT CS cars, 4118 total California Specials. From them 251 were HCS. Out of 317,000 plus cars in 1968. All engine and transmission options were used in these cars.

This is a T code 6 cylinder, manual transmission car.

The car was totally restored, nut and bolt, top to bottom by the previous owner 4-5 years ago.
1900 miles on the car since completed.


Flaming River rack and pinion manual steering,(also have a power steering rack, pump FR)
Power Disc Brakes. Steel braided lines. Fronts are Baer. Rear are Wilwood, with an electronic parking brake by wilwood.
New 302 crate motor. All stock. About 300 HP. JBA stainless shorty headers, stainless tubing, with flomasters.
T5 5 speed transmission.
Dana 60 rear end with 3.50 gears
Brand New Wheels and tires.
Front shocks are QA1, rear are air shocks, but I do have QA1 rears to go with the car.
Have a console that works awesome, but usually take it out.

I have owned the car for about a year and have worked on many things to get it reliable and dependable. Recently took a long 400 plus mile road trip with no issues. The wipers work, but I intend to look into some noise and replacing the switch and or motor. Could be the linkage. That's all the car needs as of now. Starts, Runs, and drives Awesome.

Clean Colorado Title in hand in my name.

No hood locks or Mustang script on the front fenders. Also, something about the grille looks wrong. Makes me wonder if there was a front end accident.
