This 1968 Ford Mustang GT coupe was originally delivered to Pauls Ford Sales Inc. in Kansas City, Missouri. It is one of only 4,118 examples that were ordered with the California Special equipment package. The current owner acquired the car in 1988 and subsequently had it refurbished. The refurbishment included a black repaint with red side stripes and a refresh of the interior, which now features red vinyl upholstery. The car is powered by a replacement 302ci V8 engine paired with a four-speed manual transmission. It also comes equipped with a limited-slip rear axle, a scooped hood, a rear spoiler, power steering, front disc brakes, air conditioning, and a push-button AM/FM radio. In 1993, the car was sold, but the current owner reacquired it in 2014. Since then, they have replaced the brake primary cylinder and valve covers, flushed the radiator, and cleaned various engine components. Included with the car is a Deluxe Marti report, partial service records, a copy of the window sticker, and a clean Georgia title in the name of the current owner and their spouse.

This 1968 Ford Mustang GT California Special 4-Speed underwent a refurbishment in 1988, which involved a repaint in Raven Black with red side stripes. In 1993, rust on the right-rear quarter panel was repaired. The GT/CS package added various features, including driving lamps, hood vents, exposed hood locks, faux side scoops, and “California Special” emblems on the rear quarter panels. The car also sports Thunderbird-sourced taillights, concealed exhaust outlets, and a fiberglass decklid with an integrated rear spoiler. However, the right side mirror is missing its glass.

The car rides on steel 15″ wheels with polished hubcaps and trim rings. It is fitted with Goodyear Speedway 350 E70-15 tires. Inside the trunk compartment, there are two non-matching spare wheels. The car comes with power steering and power-assisted front disc brakes, while the rear brakes are drums. In January 2016, the brake pedal assembly was overhauled, and the brake master cylinder, junction block, and front lines were replaced by R&A Motorsports of Lees Summit, Missouri.

The cabin of this 1968 Ford Mustang GT California Special 4-Speed features front bucket seats and a rear bench that have been re-trimmed with red vinyl upholstery and textured inserts. The interior also includes a color-coordinated dashboard, headliner, door panels, and carpets. Woodgrain trim adds a touch of elegance to the dash. Additional features of the car include air conditioning, vent windows, rubber floor mats, and a push-button AM/FM radio. The shifter assembly underwent an overhaul in January 2016.

The steering wheel is wood-rimmed and tilt-away, with a chrome horn ring. It faces a 120-mph speedometer, a tachometer, a clock, and gauges for fuel level and coolant temperature. The odometer currently shows 102 miles, but the total mileage is unknown.

Under the hood, a replacement 302ci V8 engine was installed during the refurbishment in the 1980s. The engine features a dual sport exhaust system with quad outlets. In February 2016, the valve covers and gaskets were replaced, the radiator was flushed, the air cleaner was refinished in blue, and various engine and clutch components were cleaned.

Power is delivered to the rear wheels through a four-speed manual transmission and a limited-slip rear axle. Additional images of the underside of the car can be found in the gallery below.

The Deluxe Marti report provides detailed information about the car, including its build date of June 20th, 1968, as well as factory colors, equipment, and production statistics.
