Vehicle Details

Up for sale is a real 1968 Ford Mustang California Special.

- 1 of 4118 California Special Mustangs produced in 1968

- C code 289 / C4 automatic

- Deluxe Marti Report & GT/CS registration

- clean GA title in my name

I purchased this car locally a few years ago and have been refurbishing it as a light resto-mod driver, however there are other projects at this point I’d rather spend time on. So far the work completed includes…

- car stripped and all metal issues repaired: front floors and toe boards, frame rail patches, and patches in the doors.

- undercarriage and engine bay stripped, scuffed, primed, and painted.

- welded in subframe connectors.

- completely rebuilt 289: new internals, upgraded cam, rebuilt 2 barrel Holley.

- rebuilt C4 automatic w/ upgraded valves and a mild shift kit.

- new Scott Drake exhaust system.

- refurbished rear differential with new seals and bearings.

- OpenTracker stage 1 suspension including Shelby drop, shocks and springs, and rear leafs.

- Vintage Wheel Works 16x8 wheels

- 225/50/16 & 245/50/16 BFG Sport Comp II’s

- Wilwood front disc brake conversion

- new Borgeson power steering system.

- reupholstered front seats, new carpet, and a refinished Grant steering wheel.

- fresh fuel system including tank, jump, and lines.

What the car still needs:

- the paint is mostly original and shows like a “fair driver,” with the work I’ve done the car is 100% ready for a repaint.

- new window gaskets.

- dash pad has a slight warp in it

- tires are old, but garage kept. Need replaced soon.

I have the reserve set conservatively for the amount of work and time spent on this car. Bid to win. I will take a certified check, wire transfer, or cash. Car will not be released until all funds are securely in my account.

Willing to work with your shipper, or I have an excellent shipping contact in the southeast at $4 per loaded mile.
