This must be the colour of choice for any 1968 Ford Mustang, don’t you agree? Known as Highland Green and made famous by Steve McQueen in the Bullit movie. Where he had a Ford Mustang GT fastback in the movie, the one we have is much rarer. Its full title is Ford Mustang GT California Special Hardtop, aka Ford Mustang GT/CS. The Ford Mustang GT/CS was a limited edition only available in 1968. It is an unbelievably cool creature and very rarely seen on European roads.

This fine specimen arrived in the Netherlands in 1997. It has a body kit directly sourced from the Ford Mustang Shelby GT. The good looking bodywork is in excellent shape. It has nice and thin, correctly aligned panelwork. The white vinyl roof covering is new and stands out beautifully with the green paintwork and white stickers. The Highland Green paintwork is in excellent condition.

The interior trim has been reupholstered in keeping with the original spec. The brown carpets and vinyl seating are in very good shape. The instrument cluster, controls and roof lining have also been properly looked after.

The Ford Mustang GT/CS not only looks seriously fast but also shifts swiftly thanks to the GT engineering. This car has a 5.7-litre V8 engine producing 350 Ps through a 3-speed automatic. The

engine delivers a shipload of torque under all circumstances. The engine is also fitted with an Edelbrock inlet manifold, an open-air filter and an aluminium radiator. The good condition of both brakes and suspension means they are more than up to their respective tasks.

In short this is not just a fantastic looking Ford Mustang GT/CS but also a car that delivers oodles of joy anytime you take place behind the steering wheel.
