straight across trade

In 1990 a then young fellow traded his 1965 vintage burgundy hipo fastback straight across for a CS convertible owned by Ernie Gonzales. I'm trying to connect with the fellow that ended up with the convertible to help piece together prior ownership of the hipo. If anyone knows of him and could put me in touch it would be greatly appreciated.

I don't know what's up with this guy, but he's posted a request for info on Ernie Gonzales several times. I believe someone from this board even put him in touch with Ernie Gonzales one time.

HP numbers are good and all, but they're like asking someone how much they can bench. What difference does it make, if I can still kick your ass.

Please read the post; I have connected with Ernie and he was helpful. I am now trying to connect with the owner before Ernie. At the time he ended up with a CS convertible in trade. I am aware that Ford did not make a CS convertible and that the few that exist were created by dealers or other. I'm hoping he might still have it and one of the forum members might know him.

just want to make sure you are referring to a RESTOMOD CS convertible.

good luck in your search.

My apologies. I misread your post. Good luck finding the person you're looking for.

To those of you who contacted me, thanks for the help. A recent article in the Under Restoration section of the Feb Hemmings about the restoration of the K code triggered a series of letters and emails and I now have the ownership history of the car. Special thanks to Bob Teets for putting me in touch with one of the POs.

I am trying to get in touch with Jim Rowland, the fellow that ended up with the GT CS aftermarket convertible involved in the trade with Mr Gonzales. If anyone knows Jim and can put me in touch with him it would be appreciated. Thanks.
