Nice 66, Ron.  Great color choice!  Here's my 68 Cobra Jet lightweight.   I'd like to say the hubcaps are in the trunk, but I just forgot to order them from the Modelhaus.

All nice Mustangs. A little known fact is that Plymouth released the Barracuda two week before the Mustang appeared in the showrooms.

I wish I could share my Mustang Pics with you all . Mis'uer 'Puter  forbids this at all ! I never saw a factory Stock Mustang  I did not like . Maybe Camaros need modifying to look presentable IMHO . Mustangs butchered up look like a Mona Lisa with a Mustache  , once again , IMHO . All of you posting here , I must express my Jealously .. so there  ..  One at a time ; "Where's the keys ?"    Thanx ..

Ford executives estimated  total sales to be 100k for the 1964 Mustang. Sales reached 126K within the first 3 months. By 1966, there were over 1 million Mustangs sold.

A little less known fact . As Studebaker was exiting the Sport Family Car Segment , the Barracuda and Mustang cashed in in the same formula . Long nose , short deck , sporty compact platform , four seater consisting of Buckets , Counsel , Compact Sized with V/8 Power . All amenities of the day on an option list . The V/8 displacing 289 cid . Both 4 spd. Manual and  automatic 3 spd. Slushboxes . Ford more directly competed with 14" Tires and  289 V/8's with different Power options  . At first Ford offered 260's and 6's . Like MoPar and the "leaning tower of power " , the 273 V/8 was a viable option especially with the Power pack . MoPar & Ford supplied 13' tires on the 6 cyl. Models . The Early (until the South Bend Factory closed  ; NOV. '63)  '64 Hawks had real Studebaker mills . The Hawks did not carry on into 1965 . All the Studebakers (Champion ; renamed from Lark) the I6's and SBC's were bought Outsourced . Resulting  in a whooping increase of Warranty claims from this penny pinching was just another nail in the Coffin for the Oldest Vehicle Manufacturing Nameplate in the U.S.A. .    Thanx ..

Love all your guy's stuff here Thumbs Up.

This is my old rare optioned tan interior '68 Shelby 'vert, that I did a few years back, with the correct "Flat rear deck lid and flat tops of the rear fenders.

These have been pretty rare since the day they rolled out of Shelby's factory. Only seen a few first hand and loved them.

I bought a brand new '67 390 hi-pro, and took delivery Dec. 16, 1966. My Christmas present to me that year, and yes it was a "Bullit" green fastback, but the Steve McQueen bullit car didn't come out 'till some time later.

My ol' 390 hi-pro was a beast as it was special built from the factory, with heavy duty handling suspension, PT, and low gears. Sure was fun to cruise in and race.

Here's some pics of the vert.

Thanks for lookin' Big Smile.

I love that Shelby, Dave! Great colors, and probably the only thing I've seen you build that hasn't been lowered. Whistling

    Wow,,you folks rock! so many great builders here,,I guess Ill have to toss one in,,theres a story to this one. This is a close copy of my  66'     1:1 I had yrs ago,,,from California,,  I paid 1,700$  for it,,as you see it,,minus the add-on stuff I did to it,,my 1:1 had a 74' 302 out of a maverick,a shift kit in the C-4 trans,gold eagle 5/16th gauge headers,mostly stock mtr ,and a few SCCA style air duct work in front for brakes,,Pinto Highback Bucket seats,and a few other things.  Sold it to guy,, who 3 days after I sold it, was street racing it in L.A.,,and rolled it 7 times! The impound yard called   me 2 weeks later,and asked me if I wanted to buy it back  for only 50$!,since I was the last registered owner{the kid went to jail,,after his antics} So,I asked the guy from the impound yard why he wanted only 50$ ?  He said the only  thing left of value on  the car was the Motor.{gulp!} He said Id have to see it to believe it,,I told him I had many great miles on that car,and thats how I wanted to remember it!   No thanks :(,,So,,,yrs later I built a version of it,,probably 20 yrs ago,,this kit is the AMT 1/16th kit from yrs ago{Late 1980's?},,the wing windows were crunched during a move ,,so  I  just  cut em out. Someday Ill make some new ones.  Keep the PONYS  rockin!  { BTW,,forgot to mention,,the pics of the 1:1  car were taken @ Sears Point  Raceway,,in Sonoma County Ca,,I used to take it to track days,,and beat on it a little bit!  LOL}
