Red GT-E - Mecum Indy - May 2018

The GT-E was only available for a few brief months in 1968. Total production would not have kept the assembly line busy for more than a half day. If you know anything about a GT-E, it is important, and this is the place to share it. The GT-E registry is maintained by Jim Pinkerton.

Robert, the red GT-E that I own was also built on 15C, and the VIN is 550786. I’d be glad to help you with any date comparisons if you like. Just PM me.
This is the most meaningful post on this thread. Think about it.

I am your former neighbor, looked at ALL of your cars, bought my GT-E in Salt Lake, you came over to my house shortly after I purchased it. I thought I had you in my rolodex , couldn't find it, was wondering if they are still for sale, or are you restoring them finally?

Someone gave me a heads up about this thread yesterday. I have known Rob for a long time and was at first surprised he had not contacted me after reading all of this. He was not aware of my past involvement. I was the person that acquired the Black car from long term ownership out of Michigan with a 302 transplant and also acquired the engine from the Red Mustangs Unlimited car after long term original ownership to make a pairing. It is clear now once again that I have the original story and am the only source of correct info as relayed from the original owner of the Red car, Wild Bill. I am going to call him and let him know the good news because he was sad to hear it was suspected as a rebody at the time I purchased the engine and then I told him last year it was a verified rebody. He may hang up on me after the roller coaster ride. This car was in fact verified a rebody by experts less than a year ago. Wild Bill and I discussed the taillights, dash and other odd items and he had an explanation which I shared both publicly and personally on the phone. This was all apparently disregarded in the equation. This Red car once owned by Mustangs Unlimited has been sold for less than its actual value a few times now and others have passed on making a purchase based on obviously unsubstantiated claims. I just hope Wild Bill is still kicking because he is a great man and I never doubted him for a minute. Love the cars and remember they always tell the real story :) Great ending to the story and a very deserving new owner.
Context for those that have been following this saga for years is in the attached thread here from the other forum.
