Re: Idaho GTE

I saw that. I meant that I did not ever see the Marti Report for the '69 which was used for electric seat back release testing. I don't know if the Marti Report said anything because I did not see that for that particular car. It is posted in the 4th post. But here it is again. https://live.staticfl...

Re: Idaho GTE

When a vehicle was used for testing there is an order type for that specifically. I've seen some Marti Reports that say crash testing too. I know of a '69 Cougar that had notes on the invoice that said it was ordered for "Electric Seat Back Release Testing". I don't know if the Marti Report said any...

Re: Idaho GTE

It's a good question but I don't have any answer that has any basis in facts so I am going to say I have ideas but no knowledge. Maybe for use by a celebrity at a special event of some sort would be a guess. Then after the event sold off as retail / used car. I would guess very few cars each year wo...

Re: XR7-G's for sale as of December 14, 2019

If Matt sold his car I do not know about it. I will add the two from Bryan if they are still for sale although I know he was trying to sell just a couple cars and he has sold the R code and the R code GT-E so maybe he is not selling any longer. Not sure whether the Baumann G is really for sale or ju...

Re: Idaho GTE

I hope the new owner will find an appropriate 428 block for the car. They are out there to be found, and not anything like the cost or difficulty of finding a 427 GT-E block. The same block was used on 428CJ Mustangs, Cougars, Shelbys, Torinos and Cyclones. Even Park Lanes, LTD's, police cars and gr...

Re: Power steering fluid draining

Ford ATF is a different mix than anything marked Power Steering Fluid. Any of the other products will cause leaks and failure as you have found. Easy way to drain is to just put the front of the car on jackstands and disconnect the pressure and return hoses at the control valve.

Re: XR7-G featured in this month's Hemmings Muscle Machines

I believe the car is in the registry already. The current owner is unknown to the registry. Picked that up last night - wow, very neat that this G is new to the registry! Hemming's Muscle Machines is a terrific magazine, and someone there obviously likes Mercury Cougars as they have had numerous fea...
