If you told me you had a Sea Foam Green Mustang for sale I'd would already be running before you finished your sentence...
That said, this one is just so Freakin Cool!

Waitin' for the day I get my first '70 Shelby convertible!

Bigfoot, thanks. I have a few pics I've saved to my pics. I like the wheels and hub caps on this red one. Is this a very desirable wheel combination?

The painted steel rims are an older custom trend that has faded away. I would think its a sign of an older restoration.
They would usually be argent (reflective?) silver or chrome rims if I'm correct.

Here's a HCS from the Ford Nationals at Carlisle, PA a few years back.
With the CJ it's 1 of 9!

Really! These little cars could be ordered with a big-block engine? Wow. 1 of 9 is amazing. Nice red, too. Were these Special cars 1968 models only? Yes?

The GT/CS was a 1968 only model, but the High Country Special was made in earlier years. Notice the unique crest on the front fender.

Very few had the 428.
A decent handful had the 390 ,.. available in both 2v or 4v varieties
