Hey Tony,

you  wouldn't happen to have any Johnny Bolton Ford advertising from back in the day?  My car came out of Maitland, Florida in 68 and I'd sure love so add some print ad material to my document book.

Phillip, were those lace wheels used in production or just on the promotion car in the ads?
Title: Re: Ford & Shelby advertising
Post by: propayne on March 16, 2018, 06:32:35 PM
They were planned for production and used on the early G's, but then recalled due to manufacturing flaws and leaks and replaced with regular chrome '68 Cougar Styled Steel Wheels.

My G came with them and I have a set which I am going to restore.

Interesting reading in the AO smith letter. Those Radar wheels sound like they were poorly engineered or manufactured.

Richstang - yes, the Raders have an interesting history, starting with Mickey Thompson, that I won't go into here. Though mine were in use on a vehicle until recently, I wouldn't use them for any extended/highway speed trips.

Here is an add that always makes me wish I had a "wayback" machine.

Post by: propayne on March 25, 2018, 03:41:03 PM
Yeah, they obviously only made a handful of those "COUGAR" oil pans.

Love this ad too - perhaps Gurney had them use a Cougar as a jab at Ford for not running his heads on the TA Cougars like he wanted to.

Here's a pic from the February 1968 issue of Playboy.

The article (I only get them for the articles) was called "Sporty and Special" and was about the "handsome, hairy and ball to drive" new cars for '68.

Bought this issue of the news stand while a college student. A couple bucks was a trivial amount at that time in my life. Dinner often consisted of a 33 cent generic box of Mac & Cheese. If finals week wrapped up, I tossed in Jenie-O turkey franks.

I still have this issue BTW. Tattered from being read over and over while I was convincing myself staying in school was a worthwhile endeavor.

Phillip,
These are really neat photos of the Shelby, Torino, and Cougar found in that old Playboy. I wouldn't have thought a scan out of an old issue could look that good. You must have cleaned tidied them up quite a bit!

This Cougar looks sharp in the GT-E option with the blue paint, silver accent, and redline tires. what a great combo of details.
Title: Re: Ford & Shelby advertising
Post by: Side-Oilers on April 12, 2018, 12:39:08 AM
+! on the great looking Cougar GT-E!

Was that a production color scheme?
Title: Re: Ford & Shelby advertising
Post by: propayne on April 12, 2018, 08:07:24 AM
The GT-E pictured in the Feb. '68 Playboy is of course a pre-production show unit. It seems it was the one and only GT-E produced with the redline tires.

GT-Es came with a choice of 11 upper body colors; Onyx, Cardinal Red, Wellington Blue, Black Cherry, Glacier Blue, Madras Blue, Caribbean Blue, Augusta Green, Lime Frost, Grecian Gold and Nordic Blue - with unique body side moldings and silver gray argent below the molding.

The Playboy GT-E looks to be Madras Blue Poly.

Thanks for the compliments on my scans. I scan a lot for my business. I don't have too much time to lavish over what I post on the car forums, just get rid of dust and some creases and adjust color and tone and set levels.

I'm guessing that this is a Sunlit Gold convertible, and the color is a bit off from a combination the print process and maybe the photo being take at dusk.
The grille light pedestal stand do appear very tall, it could be the reflections, but are the lens bodies sitting a bit higher?
