A number of these books are sold in used condition, it is an obsolete book, published in 1979. With photo material from Karl Ludvigsen.
All concepts pictured on August 16th, 1962 in the Design Center courtyard were the 7 different produced by the various studios for the exec review, the chosen one was shown on September 9th again in the courtyard of Ford design. Obviously not all studio teams gave up after that decision, but created more alternatives along the way. Including the Mustang I GT44.

The place to display the Bullitt Mustang as is- that would make sense- is the Dezer Collection north of Miami.

Oops, short correction: obviously Dezer just closed early this year and comes to Orlando, maybe it needs a new start there with a movie car highlight? Worth to watch out.

One of the Bond Diamond Mach 1 is there and a huge Bond collection as well as other movie cars (Batman, Monkeys, you name it).
They have enough money to buy.

Never thought it would ever leave Sweden.
It was published early on in Nov. 65 in Illustrated Motorsport, Dec. 65 in Bilsport and 1998 again in Bilsport magazine.

1969-1970 Shelby GT350/500 / Re: Looking for car 9F02M480004
« on: January 05, 2020, 02:58:12 PM »
I just remember that there was an early 1969 Shelby delivery loading list of 15 cars (to Claude Du Bois) and another with 5 cars of the first two batches probably. Of course the VIN's don't need to be nor were sequential.
I am not sure where I got this information from, but it sticks in my head. (maybe around the topic of #480001) a decade or more ago.

Pete - was #480004 on the loading list of the 15 cars together with #0007 and #0017 or on another?

Any ideas on the # on this '66 at the Course de Cote du col Bayard hill climb,  France I think ? in '69.

Wolfgang on ponysite.de probably has the answer   ;)

Driver Jean Deroudille acc. to the Autodiva.FR experts. Sold to a Doc in Dijon in 1969/70. 
Could be either 6S465, the 3rd car sent to Intersport/Paris or 6S397/6S398. These ones were raced in France.

French licence plate - last 2 digits 75 (pre-2009) stand for Paris area.
Henri Chemin (PR manager of Ford France) used to link Mustangs promotion to the fashion world (and sports or racing of course)

Tracked them for a number of years with owners information.
Since the first question was for some public information...here is some.
Should do some updates soon:-)

SAAC Forum Discussion Area / Re: Mustang 428 Cobra Jet Registry

Need to have one indeed.
Interesting to look back in history I offered Chris to help him out in the year 2000 with a hosted 68 R-code section  but already knowing he wouldn't bite. He made a better choice to join efforts with Scott:-)

This is what I wrote back then in the test live page:
"This is not Chris Teelings official site, just his car - I was trying to persuade Chris to have his site hosted on my server. He was clever enough, not to agree. See the 428 Cobra Jet Registry of Scott Hollenbeck in the near future for a dedicated 1968 1/2 section. Good luck, Chris"

True, Scott, I thought the air brakes could be activated downhill by hand as well, since i noticed some additonal valves in old diagramms, but makes no sense at all, there would be fading brakes anyway :-)

Actually I mixed that up as well with an eddie current brake function (>year 2000).

Seems there is a more actual Napa truck air brake system in the transporter today. I think in those days they only had a one-line brake system, which would not be road-approved today anyway.
John Grant - ex-mechanic of Alan Mann said, they had a lot of trouble with the engine during their operation time. Might ask him again about the brake system some time.

Should be easy for race mechanics pulling the pins of the hinges and detaching the flap supports which allowed taking them off, but laying one or two on top of the truck...there must have been a real good reason and some muscles available.
