I understand that this is a "1 of 1" GT/CS, that will be in my book.

So this is the only GT/CS that will have the glass roof option in '09? How did this occur?

The white (silver?) stripe has existed for a little while, but it wasn't released to the public ... check out the pic of the Long Beach Grand Prix GT/CS chase car from a couple of years ago ...

I don't know how or why there was only one....since it's a cool thing to have, and on a GT/CS it's a natural.

I'll be finding out more later.

This pic was of a test car that an employee took home. The roof will be an option available on all '09 Mustangs.

oh, really...that's interesting.

Any way of getting the VIN of that first car?? It would be a real collector car later, someday.

Thanks for finding that out.

Paul.

I love the look of the glass roof. Unfortunately, the 09 Order Guide states that the roof will not be available on the GT/CS or the Bullitt.

I think a CS in Vapor (new color option for CS in 09) with the black stripe and a glass roof would be a really nice combination.

Yeah, It would be cool to have it. I'm sure Ford will crush that car. They crushed the original test "bullitt" cars that were painted red and such. It sucks. We had members on IMboc.com trying to buy them. :)
