Re: WTB: 1968 rear seat belts, black

Stewart (Python) has been restoring seat belts for about 20 years. When did you restore the car? He was in business before I had internet. Before seat belts he was restoring steering boxes but that dried up when Flaming River started selling new boxes for the same price he was getting for overhauls....

Re: 68 R Code

Re: 68 R Code

This morning it was a beautiful 65 degrees and clear skies. We got the car out for it's first test drive. Alignment is by eye, so we won't be going far. The car will be getting a bath later today to remove all the dust.

Re: 1969 Q code 1 of 1.

Looks similar. Compare to the XR7-S color of HFII's personal car. Unfortunately photos often do not do justice. This is probably not the same car (likely the Boss 429 Cougar prototype car), but the topic reminded me of a picture of (iirc) Fran Hernandez painting a '69 Cougar at Kar Kraft. Must be a ...

February 23, 1968 from memory. The busiest day, the week when when most GT-E's were built.

Re: 68 W code buck tag

My green car has a Buffalo DSO but it was sold new in Cincinnati to a guy who lived in Indianapolis. No telling how that happened, maybe a dealer transfer.
