Re: Red GT-E - Mecum Indy - May 2018

Sounds like a solid plan Jim, who knows, perhaps we'll find the smoking gun, or nothing at all. It's a shame you don't have an updated email address for everyone, perhaps all out there, should send in their info, so the registra is up to date.

Re: Red GT-E - Mecum Indy - May 2018

I understand your thinking, however I was referring to post # 104, and # 106, as to their opinion on the bars, that is why I had the idea to contact all owners, to see if "they" are living in their own little world, and not privy to this thread, going to the source, would hopefully solve the questio...

Re: Red GT-E - Mecum Indy - May 2018

Now a question to Jim, who might be busy with his restoration, as I didn't get an answer on my last question to him reference the 3 GT-E's in Henderson, NV. Would a mailing to ALL of the known GT-E owners in the registry, asking them to send in photos of their tail lights, or at least asking for a d...

Re: Red GT-E - Mecum Indy - May 2018

OK, that's a possibility, great deduction. SO again that brings to the forefront, HOW many other GT-E's have/had these particular grills, if your suggestion is true. It all keeps coming back to where are all of the other cars/sets of unsold grills, or sold and installed etc., etc. Again the quality ...

Re: Red GT-E - Mecum Indy - May 2018

As I suspected, the quality is just too great for some back yard yahoo. Now, if not Ford, then who?? And if done by a vendor, the tooling required to produce the quality cuts, certainly begs the question, where are all of the other pieces that were made. They certainly didn't spring for the tooling ...

Re: Red GT-E - Mecum Indy - May 2018

I waited a while, and no one else has offered an opinion as to back yard, or Ford made, except for one person. When I look at the photos, photo #3, and I examine the "cuts" for the grill bars, they don't appear to be a cut from a saw blade, as one would expect from a back yard inventor. They look to...

Re: Red GT-E - Mecum Indy - May 2018

SO, where does that leave us? What is the consensus of opinion on these bars, home made by a skilled mechanic/engineer, or done by professionals for a major ( Ford) auto plant? To be used on hundreds of vehicles?

Re: Red GT-E - Mecum Indy - May 2018

Well you might be a better person to decide the origin/maker of these bars. BUT to me, the photos show "expert" craftmanship in producing these bars, especially the cut outs on the bar where the "grill" bars are. That's a lot of cut outs/cutting of the bar, and while I might be comparing my ability ...

Re: Red GT-E - Mecum Indy - May 2018

Great work, and photos too, sure, I would love the dimensions, as I'm sure some others would also.

Re: Red GT-E - Mecum Indy - May 2018

OK, is that with the owner that I know in Henderson NV, or did he re sell one of the 428's to someone else, and if so, you say it's fixed and ready for paint, where is this car, or is it a secret? Jim's, how unusual, one of the cars was from Ohio I think, as it had a Ohio University sticker on the r...
