GT/CS Postcard

Did Ford use postcards as a promotion for the GT/CS in 68? There is one on eBay, but to me it doesn't quite look "right".

Cool

Steve,

Yes they did and the post cards are very rare. I hardly ever see them come up on ebay. From what I have been told they sent them out to their loyal repeat customers.

Cheers,

Ron

Steve,
They did send out post cards and they may not look 'right' because the car they used was the test CS which is the same one on the initial posters which differs from the actual production car....ie wrong hood locks, no CS script, and side scoops with openings.

Thanks guys. I just noticed on the ad that the seller "may not ship to Canada". Guess I have to wait until he responds to my question.

Steve,
if you want...I can purchase it and then send it to you. I took a look at it and it looks just like the one I have.

Thanks Doug. I have heard back from the seller. He will ship here, so I have bid. (Keeping fingers crossed....)

Thanks. I also have an original GT/CS brochure. I got a repro to put in the car when I show it. My original stuff stays home...where they are safe.

Cool

Steve,

Here is what I did with my original dealer brochure. It is the first thing that you see when you walk in from the garage.

Cheers,

Ron
