Maybe next year we can talk Events at Carlisle into having a nice indoor "Classic" Shelby Display and try and have one of each year (1965-1970, including all variation, GT350's GT500's and GT500 KR's and even the 68- through 70 Convertible models. I know there are enough cars to do it, but do we have enough owners willing to commit to the Thursday-Sunday time frame.
Just a thought
Owned since 1971, driven over 237,000 miles, makes me smile every time I drive it and it makes me feel 21 again.😎

That GTE with the 428 CJ was a car I could really lust after, saw a Yellow Boss 302 Cougar "over the hill". Did anyone see that wacky 1970 Ranchero with the plaid interior, 429 with Shaker 4 speed.


Saw booth - the Ranchero was a interesting mix.

Lou did a "My Car Story" on the Ranchero also.

This guy has more of a "deer in the headlights" look than I did!

Wow the Ranchero was "1 of 56" built with the 429 CJ. THat's a small number in the automotive world ,btu way more cars than I ever could have imagined.

Thanks for posting the Marti & spec sheet.

I've gone to Ford Nationals for a long time, I'm amazed at the amount of awesome cars that show up
every year, I especially liked the ( Factory 429 Ranchero ) I thought it was outstanding, you never know

Propayne sorry i missed you at my new spots o42-47 since we got moved as carlisle made the swap meet  field spaces smaller & show field bigger. I seen the 68 gte xr7 4 speed cougar u had there & it looks  better now that the original parts that came with the car at the owls head maine auction ( where i inspected this car) are back on this special rare cougar. The shaker ranchero was also very Kool.

  That Ranchero takes me back:  River Oaks Ford in Calumet City IL had a 69 orange and black GT 390 Ranchero sitting on the lot back in the day.  Strolled past it numerous times.  Love it.
