That's good he got that kind of money out of it. Didn't think the market would support that price.

If you notice the shock tower braces and hood latch support brace all appear black - not Slop grey. I really think that Cougars never did get slop grey on these parts. (mustangs perhaps did).

My hood latch support was slop grey under all that grime (it looked black to me too).

I saw the car last year at Mecum Harrisburg. It's everything he claimed it was. I am surprised (and delighted) if he got that price, which was his reserve at Mecum.

Engine compartment has details that mimic Dearborn practices. One being the front upper shock mount bracket finish

Don't know how much its been altered or played with.

Jeff,

Was the San Jose upper shock mount a different finish?

Yes in 69 Dearborn supplier of that part finished them in phosphate and oil while the supplier to San Jose supplied them painted semi-gloss black.

Thanks for asking since I'm sure others were wondering the same thing. There are lots of differences between the way plants did things. Sometimes it was the provider of parts (different suppliers) sometimes it was due to how the plant line was set up - physical differences between one and the other. Sometimes it just that the workers or worker assigned to a specific task figured out something that made things easier or quicker so the manager/inspectors let it continue
