South Dakota High Country Special

I thought that read somewhere on this website or maybe another....that HCS' were made for Colorado, Nebraska, and Wyoming......well we need to add South Dakota to the list.

I have two deluxe Marti reports for my (2) 68 HCS'S. They are both are 2005 reports ordered this year one is report number 3006 and 5012. The first report lists the first option as the "California Special" and the last option is "High Country Special" while my second report for my other HCS states only "California Special" option and no mention of the HCS option.

The car has all the tell tale options, cuts (i.e. hood, taillights), it has the decals on it and it is a DSO 51 car. Marti reports the Dealer as Frontier Motors, Inc, Rapid City, South Dakota. My other HCS has also DSO 51 and the Dealer is Johnny Harper Motors, Wheat Ridge, CO.

Anyone have the same dealers for their cars, or any other states beside Colorado, Nebraska, Wyoming, and South Dakota?

One ironic thing to note...both of my cars were built on June 20th 1968, and released on June 22nd, 1968. The were both serialized on different days though and are about 1400 numbers apart from each other.

I have my cars listed on the website link on this page.

Re:South Dakota High Country Special

Stephen, we don't have to add South Dakota to the list. It's BEEN on the list for years, because those dealers got their cars from Denver Div. DSO 51 just as Wyoming, Nebraska, and Colorado dealers did. I think we can all agree that much info out there is repeated and rewritten but then some info is deleted. In your case, I have no doubt that you've read about the Co, Nebr, and Wyo stuff and whoever published or wrote this stuff overlooked So Dak. Even Mustang Monthly has been sloppy with info that I've sent them over the years. For your info, one of the 428 HCS cars IS in So Dak, has always been there and was originally bought new from a dealer there on July 31,1968. By the way, do I have your 2 cars in the registry????? hicountry bob here.

Hey Bob, Thanks for your input. I just listed my 2nd HCS in the registry here at CaliforniaSpecial.com. I'm not sure how fast you get the updates or info. I can send you a copy of the Marti report for your records if you like. I love these cars, so I saw another one for sale and bought it. I drove it today and just enjoyed all of the attention. I need to call you sometime so we can chat. My son Joshua is just starting to drive, and he wants a California Special for his first car..I told him good luck ...I can just see 3 of these cars parked on my property...ha ha..HighCoutrySteve

Nice HCS. I was watching it on ebay. Funning thing is that I flew to California a month ago to buy my GT/CS because I couldn't find anything locally in NJ! Good luck, it looks like a solid car

I flew in to Newark for this one last weekend. Drove it home with no problems, just a long drive and about a hundred bucks worth of Gas. What part of NJ are you from? Got any pictures of your car yet? If so send me a couple thanks.. kirkpatris@ec.rr.com

I'll send some picks after football is over! ;)
I live in Belmar (Monmouth county). My car is far less complete, but very drivable. I didn't see the final bid for yours but I got a "good" car for about 7K+1K shipping. I went to a swap meet last weekend here in NJ and got tons of 67 parts for spares (door, glass, molding, interior parts). Need Lucas lamps and right side scoop to get on my way back to original.

Hope you enjoyed the football. I was all into the RACE (NASCAR) and the Sox/Yankees game. Thanks for the pictures..

Re:South Dakota High Country Special

Unless they picked one up at a dealer auction or traded for one. According to Paul (I'm paraphrasing) any car could have been sold by any dealer anywhere.

Re:South Dakota High Country Special

I know of one HCS in ND that I am trying to get pics of (to include a price), the owner has been in ND his entire life and bought it from a ND dealer but I do not know what the DSO is but most likely a replant from Denver. My brother has confirmed he has the car but he is dragging his feet in getting my any info.
