2008 Ford Mustang GT California Special - Muscle Car For Sale (Click Here)


Get a hot car, add power, make it hotter car. It’s an old formula but it ALWAYS works! We’ve got a nearly new, 5,900 original miles, one owner Mustang GT/CS with a professionally installed Kenne Bell stage 2 blower on it. Potent in original form this five speed-equipped convertible now sports a dyno verified 457 horsepower and 433 lbs/ft of torque…how’s that grab you?

Crisp white on the outside the car’s only additions to the CS package are the chrome tips on the Flowmaster mufflers out back and the “supercharged” script on the hood scoop. The black top is perfect, the tires (even the back ones) are like new and the lights and lenses are perfect. Black GT/CS stripes accent the body along with the specific front and rear fascias, side skirts and quarter scoops. Bright polished aluminum wheels finish off the exterior—this is a great looking car!

The new GT/CS pays homage to the original California Special model produced in 1968. The Mustang features a restyled front and rear fascias along with classic side scoops and GT/CS stripes. The cost of the option is $1,895 and was available in coupe or convertible form in 5 colors.

That $1895 isn’t the only charge on the original window sticker, though. The base price was $31,845, while the following options pushed up the bottom line: Upgraded black convertible roof, interior upgrade package with satin aluminum panels, active anti-theft system, whel locking kit, 3.55 gears with Trac-loc, Sirius satellite radio, HID headlamps, comfort group w/heated seats, CS package (235/50/ZR18 tires, front floor mats and satin stripes,) GT appearance group, convertible boot cover and ambient lighting. Total sticker price was $37845—seven grand more than base, and four grand more than our asking price…and that’s before Hutter Performance got their hands on it.

Hutter Performance in Chardon, Ohio is regionally known for their clean installs and high quality work, making them an obvious choice for as involved of an upgrade as an intercooled supercharger. They added nearly 60% more horsepower through a Stage 2 Kenne Bell (Autorotor) positive displacement supercharger, an air-to-water heat exchanger, Auto Meter fuel and boost pressure gauges and a dyno tune. That got the 457 horsepower. The modifications were done last October 23, and since the car wasn’t driven in the winter figure there’s far fewer than 500 miles on the setup! The Mustang went back on May 22 of this year for KB’s “stage 2” upgrade with a monster 130mm single blade throttle body and a special KB tune as well as an aftermarket short throw shifter. Without a doubt this is a car which will march past unsuspecting GT500 owners!

Ever since Ford announced it was going to build a production version of the Shelby GT500 Concept, enthusiasts have been abuzz with speculation about what other specialty Mustangs were in the works. Their wait is now over: While the competition scrambles once again to play catch-up to Ford, Mustang momentum continues to grow with the introduction of the uniquely styled, limited-edition Mustang GT/CS – or “California Special.” The Mustang GT/California Special arrives in late summer as a full, stand-alone option package. Much like the 1968 GT/CS that offered Mustang buyers more aggressive styling that was “Inspired by the Shelby GT,” the new California Special also draws some cues from the 2007 Shelby. What’s more, it offers the kind of limited-production exclusivity that has made the original California Special such a big favorite with Mustang collectors over the years.

The new Mustang has been a runaway sales success ever since it bolted out of the starting gate 18 months ago. Today, Ford's Mustang remains the hottest selling car in America. It's no secret that the upcoming Shelby GT500 has driven performance-hungry enthusiasts to Ford dealerships across the country in search of information on purchasing the most powerful factory Mustang ever produced. And all indications are that the GT500 will be yet another Mustang sales success. But the Mustang has always been about choice and meeting the customer's needs – and Ford Motor Company knows that there are customers who don't require the ultimate performance Mustang, yet still desire something special beyond the Mustang GT. The California Special fits the bill.

The GT/CS was originally a limited-production 1968 Mustang coupe fitted with Shelby Mustang dress-up pieces and sold only though dealerships in California. It was available with any engine, and either with or without the GT option. The California Special can be ordered as either a coupe or convertible and will be available though Ford dealerships across the country. The new version has an aggressive front fascia with an integrated chin spoiler that sits 1.5 inches lower than the Mustang GT to provide a larger air opening for increased cooling performance. Familiar “California Special” style body side racing stripes run from the front fenders across the doors and fade-out at the end of the door.

Out back, a unique rear fascia styled with less “tuck-in” features a lower air-diffuser design that is similar to the rear of the 2007 Shelby GT500 – itself inspired by the rear diffuser on the Ford GT supercar. As an added touch, the dual exhaust system on the new Mustang GT/CS sports bright, rolled tips for a cleaner, more refined appearance. The car will also come standard with the Mustang GT’s optional 18-inch polished aluminum wheels and performance tires.

“We’ve taken the spirit behind the original Cal Special – a regional package that personalized the Mustang for the West Coast buyer – and created a more aggressive, customized Mustang for customers everywhere,” said Joe Siler, Design Manager, Ford Vehicle Personalization. “We think the result has all of the high-style flair of the original.”

Exclusive touches carry over to the inside of the new California Special, as well. Starting with the array of bright-polished and satin-aluminum finished items in the Interior Upgrade Package (which is required to order a Mustang GT/CS), the cabin comes dressed in either Dove or Parchment environments, including black leather seats with unique Cal Special Dove or Parchment “GT Leather” inserts. Plus, matching front floormats include special Mustang badging to further distinguish the GT/CS interior.

So we have a just-broken-in, brand new looking and WAY better performing than stock car for under its sticker price. You want clean? This hot Mustang has never been driven on a wet road and never seen a single drop of rain! Hutter’s bills totaled more than $10,000, just in case you’re counting, and this car still sports a factory warranty—what are you waiting for???
