GT-E -> Mecum Indy Fall Special, Oct 2020, Lot S81

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.

Was at Mecum today. The GT-E was amazing and hopefully will do well tomorrow. The car was on display as soon as you went in. Mecum staff was showing a lot of interest and the cameras were there for at least ten minutes while I was talking to Mr. Creach about his car ( I made sure that I did not get in any of the shots). Can't imagine undertaking a project of this magnitude especially on his first cougar. Enjoyed meeting him and seeing my first GT-E!! Only problem now is figuring out how to buy one without the wife divorcing me.
I was surprised that the only driving that the owner had done with the car was to load it in and out of the trailer. I would have had to at least taken it for a test ride after that undertaking. Hard to imagine having that will power.

A little disappointing how low it went, but sold it did. Couple pictures of it about to go on the block and of the owner, Mr Creach after the sale.
