I've seen Concourse level GT/CS's that sell in the $60K range. This advertised one doesn't approach that level. JMHO.

Agree. You would have to see it in person to really make an assessment. The header of the ad indicates good condition. But the first sentence of the description indicates "immaculate." Interior described as "nice." No detailed pics of the interior. None of the underside.

If I lived in the Atlanta area, I would go see it out of curiosity.

Here's a link to the seller's page. https://www.gatewayclassiccars.com/ATL/1597/1968-Ford-Mustang-GT-CS

Also attached are the Marti Report and a photo of a major boo boo. Any why are they too lazy to wash off the mud splatter?
Thanks for the link which has more pics than the Hemmings ad which says to me, the car is not immaculate. Interior looks a little tired in places i.e gauges, wires hanging down and chips on the console insert. Also, for that money, the car should be bone stock right down to the hardware. Not a true GT although it has the gas cap and hubcap GT moniker. It came as 2V but now has a 4V aftermarket (Holly?) carb.

What is the major boo boo in the picture?

I don't mean to knock the car at all. It is really, really great. Just measuring it against the fairly ridiculous asking price.

Glad someone else noticed the crooked stripe. Thought my eyes were getting worse! That price is a Gateway price! They're high on everything. I hope they get it, then mine is worth at least that!

Maybe the value of our cars have sky-rocketed and we just have not been paying attention. :grin:

Hilarious.
Something Special sets the bar amongst others on value in my opinion. And Mike's car didn't get that much.

Then again my X code should get 50k based on that.
Oh boy.

Interesting VIN number in the write-up. Just a brain cramp or a state assigned VIN? Don't think you could get a Marti with that number. :grin:
