This car was an original late 68 (read 68 ½)
With a 390 GT 4SP and get this the original color was ??? DHG
There is a story behind this car
This car was purchase from a friend of mine. It was converted way back in 1978
into a Shelby clone and painted blue,he got a "new" 427 install in, this car a turn numerous 11 second in the quarter mile.
In 1987My friend had to move to Toronto and did not wanted to bring the car with him
He ask me if I was interested in the car, but he did not want to sell the 427 with it
So I got the car for $7500 CAN, the car was in excellent shape I pick up the 428 CJ in Ottawa for next to nothing the seller also throw in a 6pack in deal (witch I still have)
did a paint job on the car and kept it as a Shelby clone for a wile
after that I got the car totally restore to original GT but at that time my wife did not like the original green color so we chose to paint it Aqua.
After I finish restoration I lost my job could not find a job for the next year so we decided it was ether the car or the house well the rest of the story is history

That is beautiful.
That's the car...that's the one that always gets away from me.
More than anything else on this earth, I've always wanted a '68 with a 428CJ. More than anything.
I am SO sorry that you had to sell it.
But I know. Both my husband and I got laid off one month apart last year.
Oh god, the discussions we had about what to sell first.
I mentioned the kids...
thankfully we both found jobs.
When I bought the Bullitt HE was having buyers remorse, and the same discussions came back to haunt me.
I had to actually promise that the car would go before the house. (and the kids too)

99GT--you do have a diecast of that car I trust to put next to the forthcoming Bullitt diecast--kind of your past and present?????

If not I can probably track one down for you--yes in that color with that hood, that hood stripe and those wheel covers--made by Ertl/American Muscle.
