Odds & Ends photos & stuff I need for the book...

While working on the book, I made up a list of some things that I need help with. If you have a way to come up with some answers, or photos, that would be great! THANKS!!

Here is the list so far:

A photo of along side of the rear quarter panel, showing the slight dimpling of the holes for the rear script (i.e. telephoto).

Photo of the bare metal holes and that "rib" on the taillight panel, where they were cut for the T-Bird lights.

Good photos of the Sonny & Cher Mustangs

Photos of Los Angeles streets in 1967, with cars, etc..

Photos of a '67-68 Plymouth GTX

A way to contact Road & Track photographer Pete Biro (circa 1967)

Find an original GT/CS with orig stripes, for close ups of how the stripes were folded over--or not.

A.O Smith Logo (and what does the word "Inland" mean in that name"?)

About the Hertz GT/CS that we talked about here.

Photos of a seat retrofitted with the recall parts, circa 1975-6

About the HCS Carb recall

A photo of an original "spray-on vinyl top"

Landau Irons accessory on a GT/CS roof side panel.

photo of an Gulfstream Aqua GT/CS without a vinyl top

photo of a turn signal switch in a steering column, with the wheel removed

Photos of a GT/CS at a Barrett-Jackson Auction

photos of a Hood Tach

photos of a GT/CS converted for autocross events

photos of a space saver in a GT/CS trunk--original??

Photos of the '07 GT/CS toy cars

photos of a 427 in a '68 Mustang--stock and original

Photos of a Tunnel Port 302--stock setup--anywhere.

Whew!!

You can either post here--or via PM to me, assuming that my mailbox won't be full from this one!! LOL!!

thanks!!

Paul N.

Paul, the 427 in a 1968 Mustang is a myth and urban legend.

Kevin Marti has confirmed this fact.

The 1968 Mercury Cougar GT-E is the only F-L-M car in 1968 to get a factory W code 427. The W code 427 in 1968 had a hydrualic lifter camshaft.

Thanks. I have a lot of discs to look at, and I'll check yours out. Thanks for doing that--and for letting me know.

Thanks, Chewy.

What I may consider, are Registry (only) updates with DVD / CDs every year, after the book is done. This would include the late model GT/CSs especially.

You may make it without friends; but with them, you can do anything.

Paul, My car has a hood tach which I was told was a dealer option but I can't confirm that. There should be pics on the disc I sent you. If you can't find them I can probably get some more.

If you wait about a year or two I can give you pics of a 427 in a GT/CS, a Windsor 427

You mean "Anatasia", the Russian Princess, or "Anesthesia", the Prince of Joy?
