Interesting read on this GT/CS.

https://www.msn.com/en-ca/autos/enthusiasts/the-dollar7000000-mustang/ar-BBGjdY1?li=AAggFp5&%2525253Bocid=mailsignout

A great story......it just sold on Bring a Trailer

It had some really strange modifications.....the front end has the craziest helper springs.....it had one of those old style pick up bug deflectors, mounted in aluminum rail.....sadly it was removed.....almost as unique as the owner was.

Wow, that was a very interesting story. I wonder how long they had been buying and hording those gold coins? The new owner should've replaced the exhaust system with a factory replacement, because of how untouched the car is with such low mileage.
Waitin' for the day I get my first '70 Shelby convertible!

Is there a registry? My sister had a red w/blk stripes GT/CS CA lic # ZAZ235 (don't know why I remember that) 302 auto. She bought it a few months after the 69s were out so she got it cheap. It got Tboned and they fixed it. When it got hit it opened the door gap on the passenger side to about 3/4 of an inch. The AC vent on the drivers side never fit right after it got hit. I've still got the fog lights in the garage. I took them off for my new 70 Roadrunner before she sold it. Pretty sure they are the Lucas ones.

Yes, there is a Regisrty. Itís called MUSTANG GT/CS Recognition Guide And Owners Manual by Paul M Newitt. Itís a very nice and well done hard cover registry. It the same size as the SAAC Registry but not as thick, 224 pages color photos, history, owners by serial/VIN numbers etc. see pics. Iíll make a couple posts. I know you guys like photos.
Paul gave me one as a special gift and signed/autographed it as it was a limited edition piece. This was back in 2014 while I was VP of NorCal SAAC at the time.

Cheers

A little garage project picked up a few years ago.  Was our first classic and we did everything wrong and ended up with a non-numbers GTCS with frame damage and then some.  We have been tinkering with over the years and not sure if will sell one day or just let one of the kids have it?

My GT/CS is on that page. Incorrectly listed as a C code though.   :-\
