Marti Report for HCS

Was wondering what to expect to see on Marti Report for a 1968 HCS. I just got my report today and it doesn't show High Country Special any where on it. It shows an option as California Special. Tag shows DSO 51. Shouldn't it say High Country Special on the report somewhere? ???

I'll have to look at mine when I get home, but California Specials weren't sent to DSO 51, so it automatically makes it a HCS.

Re:Marti Report for HCS

On Marti report it has the California Special option .Then at the very bottom it has High Country Special listed. At the Hershey show one of the judges asked me to prove what I had. At first I couldn"t find HCS listed evently I found it. 8)

Re:Marti Report for HCS

19HCS68,
All GT/CS's and HCS's will say "California Special" option and not HCS. The only way you can tell is if the DSO states "51" (which yours does) then it is a HCS not GT/CS. There where no GT/CS's sold with the DSO of 51. The Marti Report is a reflection of the options available in 1968, and option was called Calfornia Special. The DSO of 51 made any car sold to that area a HCS. Dont' worry your car is a true "HCS".

For what its worth, like Tom's my Marti report actually says my car is a HCS down at the bottom right above his signature.

Re:Marti Report for HCS

I just checked and my report doesn't say HCS either. It lists "California Special" as the first option, then the rest of the options, then the, "Your car was actually produced..." and then Kevin's signature.

Mine is the deluxe report. Is that the same report that you have hcsstang and bish?

Re:Marti Report for HCS

I ordered the deluxe version as well. Mine looks like Jons report based on his description. I called them about this and was told to make a copy of report and send it to them with a letter explaining what my question is. I will do that and see what I get back. Those that show the HCS on their report, does it give the statistics of production numbers for HCS? Last but not least, THANKS for your help everyone! ;D

Re:Marti Report for HCS

I'm not sure if it lists the production number, If memory serves me correctly it only lists the total number of GT/CS which I assume includes the HCS.
Anyone know if the total GT/CS number on the report includes the HCS?

Re:Marti Report for HCS

This question is for those that did say High Country Special on their report. Did you specificly state when you ordered the report that you was wanting to confirm that it was an HCS car?

Re:Marti Report for HCS

I gave my mailing address for the report. I hope the Marti will be at Carlisle show this week end.

Re:Marti Report for HCS

I don't recall if I told them I was looking to confirm a HCS or not when I ordered the report.
