Thanks for the additional information Phillip. I see your mother also collected GTE posters.

Have you tried contacting old salvage yards in Marys PA and Indianapolis IN?

Any chance you can change the car on the poster from red to blue? Just kidding.
Carlton,
You can purchase the new GTE shirt that Phillip designed for the CCOA. That shirt has a blue GTE on it. But it is an XR-7 and has all the proper bolts and screws turned to the proper position so it still will not 100% match your car. Sorry, I could not resist. LOL

Our Cougar was sold at Stanford Lincoln Mercury in Menlo Park, CA. I found a good paper plate and a fair, scratched up metal license plate frame on Ebay. I am always on the look out for a better license plate frame. I just love owning a Cougar!

I have been looking for a couple myself. Ginger was ordered by Kline Motors in Everett WA. Kline later became and still is a Honda dealer the Ford part became Bryan motors. My Convertible is from Beverly Hills Mercury in Beverly Hills CA and my Q code 70 is from Dick Anderson Ford Mercury in Medera CA.
It's funny at the local swap meets IF anyone has dealer license trim rings they are usually for out of state dealers. But so far I have not found these 3, My 71 had trim rings from the selling dealer on it. Olympic Mercury in Seattle. Still had the original license plates and under 20+ years of yearly tags the original 71 tag.
Back to the original topic, I will add the dealers you are looking for to my list of items to keep my eyes out for.

I think that the best places to find original dealer items is at wrecking yards and flea markets that are local to where the dealer was located.

I suspect doing that would be quite a haul for most of us - it sure would be for me. Lucky for me my Cougar was sold new at Gable Lincoln-Mercury in Coral Gables Florida, so I might have better luck talking my family into making a vacation out of it! Would be fun, I love "junking".

Oh, and Carlton, if you can make it to the DCC picnic at Ralph's next month, I'll bring you a poster and a t-shirt :D
