Wow, super rare car being a 68 428CJ and not a GTE, wonder if it's an auto or 4 spd car. This is a cougar that you can put the money into and then some. If somebody gets pics of it , please post them on here. This bad economy is bringing some rare cars out, while at the same time making it a good time to buy; if you have the cash.


Didn't realize it was 175K, I'm guessing this won't be a typo like the 390 4 spd G car that was bought earlier this year.

My 1st take was $17.5K too. But $175K, Better put up lots of good photos for that kind of money !

Well known (Gorgeous) car that is on the registry and has been pictured / discussed here every year when it comes up for sale. Bill Quay sold the car not too long ago for $40k (ish)

I've examined this car and judged it at Carlisle one year. Much repaint if not a total repaint. Check the color mismatch between the fender, door and rear quarter in the picture. I would call it an older restoration.

Still a very nice, extremely desirable car in wonderful condition.

Was going to comment on the fact the door looked to have been repainted at some time as it doesn't match the fender or quarter. I guess that extra paint warrants a bump from $40k to $175k.

Current value? So what the best guess on correct value for this car today? $60K?

I am guessing something like $85K to the right guy. Value is not really known on a one of a kind item until the money changes hands. You don't know how desperate the seller is. Judging by his asking price I would say he doesn't need to sell right now.

I wonder if it sold, the listing has been deleted by the author. I noticed on the Marti report on the link that koo-ger listed that the car was built 3 days after mine.

Is there a registry for the non GT-E 428CJ cars? If so, what is their contact info?
