GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this authentic '68 Mustang GT California Special. Anyone familiar with the Mustang brand can tell you the '60s GT CS is one of the most desirable and hard to find models out there. This brilliant example of a well documented survivor. Shiny candy Apple Red paint is complimented by a clean black standard interior. Powering this pony is Ford's iconic J Code 302 V8 mated to a C4 automatic transmission. This beautiful GT/CS was ordered with a Black Vinyl Roof, California Special, C-4 Cruise-O-Matic Transmission, F70X14 Wide Oval Tires, White Sidewall Nylon Tires, Power Disc Brakes, Power Steering, AM Radio, Tinted Glass, Deluxe Bucket Seats, and Deluxe Wheel Covers. This CS was built on February 26, 1968. A Complete Marti Report is supplied with with the vehicle along with documents from the original purchase. This a great surviving 68 California Special Mustang. Drive this one out of our showroom or have us assist with shipping it to you anywhere in the United States! Don't hesitate to give us a call with any questions or for more information.

When Ford introduced the Ford Mustang in 1964 and instant love affair with the American Pony Car was born. The mustang was smaller, lighter, and more nimble that any American manufacturer had produced thus far. This coupled with its fresh design, the Ford Mustang became a must have among the American public. 1967 marked a pivotal year for the Mustang, as this was the first time since the first generation made its debut that vast changes were made to the Mustang. Making it larger and having many more engine options than before. It also eliminated some things that did not make sense. 1968 was just the same and by this point, Ford had found the next best thing and had very little for competition comparatively. In mid-February 1968, the California Ford Dealers (Ford Dealer Advertising Fund) began to market a factory-built, limited-edition Mustang, called the GT/CS, or "California Special". The hope was for a targeted production run of 5,000; however, only 4118 were made, including 251 units that were remarketed in Denver, Colorado, as "High Country Special '68". Production ran for only 5.5 months from mid-February 1968 to early August 1968.

I'm pretty sure this is J141533

Never mind, there's a door tag photo on the seller's website.
