My new old red HCS

Hi to everyone and thanks to Jon H. for getting me on the site. In April we purchased a red HCS that has some history. It was Bob Teets first HCS back in the 80's. It was also used for the photos in Paul N. first book under the HCS chapter. Bob had restored the car to show car condition and it had been featured in Mustang Monthly in Febuary 1986. Unfortunely the fellow that Bob sold the car to let it sit out side in the Calaifornia sun for 20 years. Now it is in need of complete restoration again. I am a MCA gold card judge and plan to do a concours restoration. Bob as all ready been a great help with history and information. I am looking forward to the help and advice available on this site.

Welcome to the forum Ruppstang!! Just out of curiosity who did you purchase thi car from? There was a guy here that had about 12 GT/CS and HCS and I remember that one of them belonged to BOb Teets,I believe it was a red one. This guy bought a collection of these cars and almost all of them were projects but cant remember his name.

Welcome to the site. Just last month I gave Bob my copy of the Mustang Monthly with your new car. Tell him to pass it on

Welcome Marty! Bob Teets is the man as you know on HCS cars. Anything you see on the net or in print is the result of his dedication to these cars.

What a lucky guy to score a car he once restored! Good luck and if the rest of us can help with non-HCS stuff, we are at the ready. Lots of mechnical and electrical people, and people who scan everything and everywhere for parts.

Welcome!

Rob

I know first hand what a valuable tool this forum is when putting a car back together. Welcome to the site, fellow MCA member. And a gold card judge too.

What state are you in?

ISO well behaved, dependable, and determined CS.

I live in Weeping Water a small town south of Omaha Nebraska. I started out looking for a GT CS but never dreamed we would buy a HCS. That's extra cool because they were originaly sold in western Nebraska.
Thanks Moseatm that is our car. Sadly it does not look like that now. Bob had made a show board that had those pictures on it but it is very faded. When I figure out how to post pictures I will put some current ones one the site. Thanks everyone for the warm welcome Marty MCA38812

Really? I thought they were only sold in Colorado. Interesting.
