69 Shelby with power windows
« on: August 24, 2018, 07:42:03 AM »
I ran into someone yesterday that claims he was an original owner on a 69 with power windows. The discussion couldn't be more specific by me as to questioning more special items.

He claimed that he sold the car for $200k and bought his country house with that.

Is it possible that he had one of the engineering cars with the Cougar dash, red interior, etc.? He seemed to be insistent on the power windows.

He says it was documented and I haven't asked Liska if it rings any kind of a bell yet.

Any speculation on this? Says he had "Shelby's documentation" on the car so lots of "caution flags" went up.

Just curious on this. No big issues to raise.

The Black Convert 69 prototype/engineering car we restored for Tony King had cougar power windows. When we were researching this we found that there was a regular production fastback that also received the power window setup originally. I believe the story was it went to an executive at Ford. Vinny will remember.

Thanks Vinny. That would be an interesting car. 102338 Red fastback prototype, brochure car??? was also given to a Goodyear executive after it was no longer useful at Shelby Automotive. The story we were told was that he let his daughter drive it to college. We found the car in Ohio.

Does it show that it was ever here in New York?
