DescriptionEdit

The 1968 Ford Mustang GT/CS is the California Special. Due to the outstanding sales in the state of California, bringing in 20% of the national sales of the Mustang, the dealerships were able to go to Ford and ask for their own design.

With help from Carroll Shelby, the GT/CS was born, with parts being designed at the same time as the 1968 Shelby. Parts of the car that were redesigned in fiberglass are the rear deck lid and end caps, taillight panel, and the side scoops. Along with the body changes, there were a few extra features on the car, including the fog lamps in the grille, as well as the Thunderbird taillights. There was a special side stripe created that had GT/CS in the stripe, though the car was not necessarily a GT, though some did have the special GT package.

There were supposed to be 5000 produced, but production was halted at 4118, with 281 of them becoming the "High Country Special '68."
