1968 Ford Mustang, California Special

In mid-February 1968, the California Ford Dealers began to market a factory-built, limited-edition Mustang called the GT/CS, or "California Special".
Shelby Automotive, now part of Ford, was assigned the task of designing and engineering the necessary parts and assembly procedures for the GT/CS. This was done right alongside the development of their 1968 Shelby. The fiberglass parts were crafted at A.O. Smith, in Ionia, Michigan, in steel molds.The Mustang GT/CS features included: Fog Lights, twist-type DZUS hood pins, side scoops, pop-open gas cap, rear spoiler decklid with end caps, and taillight panel with 1965 Thunderbird taillights. Side stripes with the "GT/CS" die-cut logo, along with a rear decklid stripe were included.

This original CS/GT is documented with a full Marti Report and is an original Acapulco Blue car. Of the 4,118 GT/CS cars built, this is one of five cars built with this configuration. The paint and trim is very tidy and the interior is original. The option list indicates power steering and power disc brakes, automatic transmission and the 289 V-8 engine with Cobra dress up kit.

Documented original cars are becoming more and more difficult to find.
