The car built on 1/16/1968 & first sold on 1/23/1968 at Johnnie Harper Motors, Inc of Wheatridge, CO.
As the GT faded from existence because of meager sales, 1969 was the final year for the Mustang GT and very few were sold making the 1968 GT Mustang one of the rarest of all Mustangs, let alone in convertible form. This particular example was built at San Jose, CA with a DSO of Denver, CO where is was originally sold at 'Johnnie Harper Motors' of Wheatridge, CO and which consequently lived all of its life in a dry garage in Colorado with long time family owners.
The car has been beautifully kept and maintained and still retains its original 'Acapulco Blue' exterior color paint with GT White 'C' Stripes, original 'Light Blue & Dark Blue' Vinyl Standard Bucket Seats and GT Equipment Group options of original Styled steel wheels with GT Wheel Covers, dual exhausts correctly mounted with quad exhaust tips, Pop-open GT gas cap, Heavy-Duty suspension, air conditioning, fog lights, power disc brakes, power steering, AM radio/cassette & 3.00 Standard Axle Ratio. Obviously a rare and garaged example that was never raced or abused with no signs of any accidents or rust and boasting its original red oxide floors. Please note that the car will be sold with its 'Deluxe Marti Report' to substantiate all its rare options and originality.
This particular example must be seen and driven to be fully appreciated - a seriously striking example which turns heads wherever she goes! The original 390 'S' Code engine is extremely strong and ridiculously responsive with excellent oil pressure and no noticeable oil leaks and which sounds absolutely magnificent, the transmission shifts smoothly through the gears and the engine temperature always remains cool.
The car's original factory 'Acapulco Blue' color is still of a very good quality with only minor imperfections noticeable upon close inspection. The interior is all original and in absolutely exceptional shape for its age with only a couple of very minor tears in the vinyl seats.
With the legendary and considerably more expensive 428 Cobra Jet 335HP 'R' Code engine rated at only 15 HP more than the 390 'S' Code 335HP engine, these 390 'S' code cars are true muscle car sleepers that can only gain considerably in value over the years. This is an increasingly collectible and extremely rare and desirable 1968 Ford Mustang factory GT 2 Door Convertible with its rare original 'S' Code 390 4 barrel V8 engine fully loaded with very rare options in turn-key ready daily appreciating and daily head-turning condition of an all time classic America muscle car icon!
