Re:World's Worst Deck Lid Stripe

Not a good rear deck stripe at all, but forgive that and you've got what looks like a very nice GT/CS.

Re:World's Worst Deck Lid Stripe

I don't know this car or who owns it but but I'm less than an hour from this car if someone is interested in having it looked at. I may be able to talk PFSlim to go along as well. ;D

Re:World's Worst Deck Lid Stripe

I think this car was on ebay about 6 months ago, because I remember the badge and wrote to the seller about it. Never received a reply.

I've seen far worse deck stripes than that. It's certainly not correct but at least it's the right design.

It also appears to have a running horse emblem on the lower front quarter panel doesn't it?

Re:World's Worst Deck Lid Stripe

the badge on the front grill is a White Falcon over the Polish flag. It's the insignia for the Polish Falcon's Club of America..
Too bad no a/c on board, gotta have a/c nowadays..

Re:World's Worst Deck Lid Stripe

I started a new thread on this car before I saw this one. Can it really have originated in Kansas as the seller says?

GTCS cars were made in California but they were shipped throughout the U.S. to be sold through dealerships. Not sure how many locations but the fact that it was sold through a Kansas dealership isn't out of the question that very well could be correct for a GTCS. My car was sold under the Salt Lake City DSO.

Re:World's Worst Deck Lid Stripe

I questioned the Kansas thing myself to tell you the truth.

I checked Paul's book and it does indicate some sold in Kansas City Sales District. I didn't think they were sold that far east either but it was.

Mine was from Arizona.

Don't feel bad about being a newbie. I'm new at this too. We're just 2 more newbies getting educated on these great cars. I've said it before I was never going to consider a coupe. Fastback first and Convertible a distant second. The GT/CS has won me over big time. There is a lot to learn so give it time and let it sink in.

I went to my first cruise last Saturday night. The weather was iffy so the turn out wasn't as big as usual (350 cars the week before). I parked next to a bright yellow Shelby fastback. I had a crowd of people around me car asking lot's of questions. From the info I got on this site alone I was able to answer most of the questions which was great. I had a frame up with a brochure, marti report and Paul's info on the last page of his 2nd book. People were looking over each other's shoulder trying to read it all. It was funny to see.
I guess you don't see many in NY so that added to it. A number of people were familiar with them especially some that lived in CA. But I digress...

Everyone was a newbie at some point - even the "experts" on this site ;)

Re:World's Worst Deck Lid Stripe

Thanks Broadway Blue. This sight has been great for the learning process. My car is a CA car (LA) and I knew other states got them, just didn't think that far east. I still haven't got my hands on Pauls book. My birthday is coming, I'll have to ask... for Mothers Day my husband got me new seats!!!

Re:World's Worst Deck Lid Stripe

I'm pretty sure a copy of Paul's book is still on ebay. Don't know what the bidding is up to.
