GT/CS in new Ford Dealer Calendar

Don't walk, but RUN to your local Ford Dealer for a new 2005 "History of the Mustang" Calendar.

It's 15" wide, and has a light blue '05 on the front. For March is the 1968 Year. In the collage of photos is a red GT/CS with black stripes and black vinyl top. It's got a Calif. "Historical Vehicle" license plate on it. I know that this car is in the registry...

This is a nice calendar. Worth a trip to the Ford Dealer to get one...or check at the Service Dept.

They are going fast--so go out and get one today!

Paul.

Re:GT/CS in new Ford Dealer Calendar

I called my dealer today. They didn't even order any. So therefore, I am out of luck. :-[

Stopped by the Ford dealership and they are still waiting for them.

Re:GT/CS in new Ford Dealer Calendar

I have been all over the place looking for this calendar. None of the local Ford dealers knows anthing about it. Looks like another good planning strategy by Ford. Think I'll try going directly to the horse's mouth and see what can be found out. You would think Ford would at least ensure their dealers were informed somehow.

Re:GT/CS in new Ford Dealer Calendar

My local FORD dealer did not have any, and did not know about it. I plan to try a few more within a reasonable radius. Casey

I also checked with two different dealers who were absolutely clueless about the calendar.

Re:GT/CS in new Ford Dealer Calendar

All, nothing in Denver yet. Phil Long Ford said they are on their way, but no telling when. They suggested that I go to www.fordcollection.com Fords internet store but nothing there either. Of course I already have 5 calendars on order that cover some of my favorite Mustangs!

Re:GT/CS in new Ford Dealer Calendar

Well folks I'm lost. Contacted Ford directly in Michigan today and they told me they know nothing about them. Strange. I also went to one of our local dealers who just happens to be one of the biggest high performance mustang dealers in this area (SVT, Saleen, Roush) and they didn't have any idea what I was talking about. Could this be a mystery calendar to see what kind of interest they can drum up.

Has anyone else been able to get any info on this calendar?

Hey Paul; Could this be just a West Coast thing?

Re:GT/CS in new Ford Dealer Calendar

Checked with our biggest FORD dealer in the area (in the wealthy district). They said they ordered double of all the mustang promotion literature, but had not seen this. They were really nice to look on the computer and could not find it. Their guess is that is is a dealer or regional special calendar in CA. As a consolation prize they gave me a Product Information Book on the 2005 mustang that supposedly only the sales teams get. Pretty cool.

So, now we eagerly await the one-of-a-kind calendars from Jon!

Re:GT/CS in new Ford Dealer Calendar

I checked with a couple of Ford dealers here in Eastern Canada, and they can't track down any information on a calendar from Ford. They suggested that it may have been an individual dealership which ordered calendars for themselves from someone other then Ford. They are still looking.

Re:GT/CS in new Ford Dealer Calendar

It's the same in Flagstaff, AZ. I talked to Babbitt Ford's parts manager, and he didn't know anything about this calendar. He did say that Babbitt's had ordered calendars, but they were not the "History of Mustang" calendars!!!! Oh, well.

Re:GT/CS in new Ford Dealer Calendar

Thank you Jon, I'm going to print that page and bring it to the dealer. If they can't get the calendar, at least they will know that I wasn't making it up. That will give me some credibility for the next time.

Re:GT/CS in new Ford Dealer Calendar

Gosh-- I'm SO SORRY for the wild goose chase I sent you on.

You see, I was at a local Ford dealer, and I knew someone that worked there, and she "snuck" me the calendar, and a Ford GT brochure (don't tell anyone).

I (mistakenly) thought it was available at the service dept., since it had a Ford Parts logo on it at the bottom.

It's probably one of those things where each dealer got like ten or less for their offices. <sigh>

Sorry...but at least someone found it on EBAY.

Paul N.

Re:GT/CS in new Ford Dealer Calendar

;D I was fortunate enough to get the calendar. My son ran across one. The person that he got it from said that only four calendars per dealership. Considering that I was lucky. ::) 8)
The weatherman is predicting 14 or more inches of snow with winds up to 35. Come on Philadelphia and Pittsburg. If it comes to that I don't know who to pull for.
