Just to add some "flesh"to the other address of Ray Wolffs garage in El Segundo:

Thank you, great improvement in the perception...especially for the landing page ... ideal would be also "snooze" filters under personal settings like in FB 8)

The 71/199 Mustang was driven by Skip Scott, not by the Comstock Racing Team, it was only there at CRT during a visit of a journalist and described as a clapped out car in an article (Car and Driver without looking up). Yes it was DPK7B, the (in its class) winning TDF 1964 car sent over directly after TDF 64.
Later went back to HM and then being driven by Jack Brabham, finally being sold to the Netherlands and later on wrecked in a dutch salvage yard. Much longer story, but take not too much space here.

Speedy recovery to him.
Tell him the next articles go unedited and not fact-checked into the Shelby American quarterly and he'll be back on his feet in a millisecond.

I have added Paul Patersons (John Petries mechanic) memory report now to the site as it was send to me some time ago.
Kevin Martis early research was indeed about 8 possible Stallions in 1967 delivered to Mainway.
I have had meanwhile 2 reports on 1968 GTS Specials from Mainway, cars that are not mentioned in either memories, not from John, nor Paul nor others.

I just put it up as scrap notes from the past 27 years Internet life. It is always interesting when genuine people pop up in the mail and add something to the story. That's why I keep an open mind for all bits and bytes:-)

Jeff, not sure if this quote matches your find. But I was about to update my Stallion page with some insider knowledge from back then, recently sent to me. There is more to it coming soon, which 427 engine actually was installed.

Here is the quote of John Petries mechanic Paul: "Yes I recall that Stallion as a metallic steel grey 427 wedge on Webbers and now that I think on it, I think it was built as a flag ship dealership promo car. It seems that the knowledge of a 68 Mustang with a 427 wedge produced by Ford is dubious and so far has not been proven... But Iím here to tell you that there was one, not from the factory, but by Mainway Ford on the Danforth."

Aside from that I'd like to correct some possible mix-up of the white "W-coded" fastback and the black "W-coded" convertible. The white 68 fastback is still in Switzerland with a collector, while the black 68 "W-coded" convertible is in Australia.

The red Mach II street concept car was built on a 67 convertible body, not an early body, the white competition version was built separately at Kar Kraft on a different chassis.

The case about the early chassis is still cold and not closed. 3 prototypes are mentioned in early documents.

@ Honker
Two T-5s in the upper picture, one from Landkreis Kitzingen (Bavaria/Germany). I think I remember the one with the side exhaust.
An obvious customized show car from Frankfurt/Germany in the lower one.

The white Mach 2 race car version at KK - I think this was once posted by Tom T. (not sure)


Sat in one and I liked it:-). Right or wrong, those non-ex-factory ones are cool.

The Mach 2 street car (red one) engine bay looked like this. The white racing car was constructed in a different way at Kar Kraft.

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.
