I can only surmise someone there had a connection and wanted the used cars. All the cars (new and used) from Pletcher Ford went there when that dealership closed down.

Some of these are Phils photos. He did a great job working on the car

They represent some of the extra sound deadner. I will go into how I deducted that "sound pkg" was actually sound deadner

Obviously not normal applications of deadner and all done at the same time.

Even under the car, so someone had a goal in mind, the presence of the factory style jute inside the car was also a clue

One day I found someone that had posted a bunch of invoices they found. These were for 1969 cars. But, one notation stood out to me. NVH is noise, vibration and harshness. A very common feature on a 1969 Mach 1, tested on a 1968 Shelby before the introduction of the Mach 1

I have no ideas, that document really has no connection to 101 other than providing the key to deciphering the “sound package” notation on the engineering inventory sheet
