68 G valance

There were only 619 XR7-Gs built. They were built along side the Shelby Mustang, and were available with every engine and transmission offered in 1968, (except the 427). This was the first Cougar to be a part of the Hertz Rent a Racer program. If you have any information about these rare cats, this is the place to share. The XR7-G registry is maintained by Royce Peterson.

I found some on E-Bay.

And one narrowed down to your specific need.

Thing is that if you can figure out the correct model number you need you might be able to get away from the Shelby premium.
