Looking for a very nice pair. Saddle interior.


Wow, that's very interesting and informative Side-Oiler.  8)

Not a single mention of 'digital'.  ;D

Can someone ID which 1968 issue of MOTOR TREND this article by Steve Kelly was in:


Hello my friend,  November 1967.   :)

Congrats!!!!  Keep us posted with your progress.

Glad you have your original hubcaps and are going to put them back on. For years I lusted for a set of 10 spokes but now  hubcaps are back in style. I was hoping someone more knowledgeable than I would respond but I guess you have me for now.

I guess if I noticed the clip-on weights keep the cap from seating flush against the wheel but I never paid it much mind.

Installing the hubcaps can be like a masochistic game of whack-a-mole. I think I came up on a good method the very last time I put one on but I need to test it again before I say for sure. I'll try to test it this week.


Will be interesting to hear your method.

Moderator: Bill,   Please delete. Auction is over and I'd like to keep the topic in the 68 section.

Sorry and thanks.....

Is it too much to ask you to keep the discussion of a car "up for auction" to one thread?
Perhaps, place the original thread in the right sub section of the forum so the moderators do not have to do it after the fact?

It's not rocket science,  ::) 

I'd like to have the information on a 68KR in the 68 section.  Is that too much to ask? Delete the post in the Auction section for me please and I'll repost after the auction is over in the 68 section.  Or wait 5 minutes when the auction is over.  Sheeeze.

God forbid there is too much car talk here taking away from the Lounge nonsense.

One of 55 white/saddle KR's?    I'm surprised that many were made in that combo.

Also, there is no SOLD date on the Marti report.  Is that common?

Up for auction now on ebay.  Looks to be a solid original car with a paint change.   Seller says 1 of 6 in this paint/trim combo but the Marti says 1 of 55.  I'm not sure I ever saw a white/saddle KR?

Not familiar with that dealership either.  Bill Price Ford, Reading PA.

Nice documentation.

Caught up with a previous owner yesterday and he graciously offered this polaroid of my car circa 1975.

I have been searching for this image for a long time. That's a pair of dice by the lower scoop.

Great find.  8)

Cool!  Where was this held? 

Might want to 'pack' if you are visiting the city.  ;)
