went to a dealership by my work that deals in classics,they had on display this beautiful 68 gt conv. with a 428cj. the car is red with white top,white C stripe and red interior,just beautiful!looks like it just rolled off the line! the salesman says that it is less than 50 made,and ford really didnt keep count on how many that they really made. it was roped off so i couldnt see the VIN, so know clue on that. and they said it wasnt for sale just display.BUT the people said that the owner did say that everyting has a price,so my question is how much do you think that they could get for it? thanks everyone.

If it is a real CJ, my guess would be in the 40-50 grand range.

Isn't there one of these cars in a recent issue of M&F? I think that one is 'rare' because of the 8track or something like that.

Easily worth that figure if it's sharp. Mustang Monthly featured one several years ago. With the exception of the Tasca Ford white fastbacks, they were all GT's, I believe.

681/2 428 Cj Verts are rare 15-20 built.
Wonder what numbers Kevin has on them?

It is hard to give an accurate figure from his book as there is an overlap of Shelby production. On cvts only: 4 sp 278 {R}
c-6 274 {R}

According to this book there were also some big block Shelbys produced that had 390 codes: both X and S. But, they were really 428's. Recently, I read that some Shelbys actually were 390's! Wouldn't THAT be a kick in the n*ts to lay out a ton and get a 390! To get back to the CJ cvts., there were no more than 50, but probably less. Am sure that Marti has those figures.
