(message from Mike): The rear view mirror was an option from FoMoCo so, rather than drill a hole in the body, I installed a high mount mirror so that my arm resting on the door top wouldn't obscure my rear view. This car was customized later I removed the stock tail lights and the exterior gas cap, installed four (two on each side) '64 Dodge square tail lights and moved the gas cap inside the trunk. I eventually got my hands on a Holman-Moody 327 cid (289 stroker) engine that was one of 256 that were built for the GT-40 program I have the build sheets from Ford. It ran a 12.9 sec. 111 mph quarter at Westhampton (LI, NY) drag strip with an open rear. The rear was the original 9' equipped with a Hone-O-Drive 2-speed rear with 4.56 gears. Lots more to this story and will be covered in part with my next book, 'Griffith, the man, the car,the legacy', a follow-up to my current book 'The Griffith Years, history of the Griffith Motorcar, 1964-76 and beyond'.

New rug / dash bad and package tray. Only 70k miles! The car is now being used as a HERO car in the upcoming Netflix series called ' The good cop ' staring Tony Danza / Josh Grobin / Monica Barbero It is going to be 'Coras' car in the show. So look out for it!

(message from Rad): I am trying to find the the color code for 1970 chestnut brown for my Mach 1. I had one in college and want to paint my new one that color. [Editor: 1970 Ford paint code Y or M3347]
(message from Steve): I am the owner of this car. It actually has a black interior. The car went on to win a gold medal at this event with only 11 points deducted out of 700. She has subsequently received five more gold medals and won 'Best muscle car' at the Alderwood Terrace Concours de Elegance in 2011. [Editor: Amazing car, one of my favorite that year at the show]
(message from Thank you, Pegasus Auto Repair): Best color combo for the Foxbody Mustang EVER. Love it, love it, LOVE IT. Would buy one today in a heartbeat if I could find one in good shape.
(message from 60s carman): I also have a 1968 Eastertime Coral WT9012 verified through Kevin Marti. It comes from the same Denver SO of 513000 and has a build date of 27C. Delivered to Rosen Novak Auto Co in Denver. [Editor: consider submitting photos]
(message from lususs): This is my old car, these are my pictures :) [Editor: Beautiful car, let us know if you have more or want changes.]
(message from need stripe): I am looking for that stripe for my mustang. [Editor: I have bought reproduction stripes from www.graphic-express.com in the past with good luck but they don't seem to have this one]
(message from bluboy): How can I get the mixture for this poppy green on Paul Mansons '72 shelby mustang.Thank you for any information . firstname.lastname@example.org [Editor: The Poppy Green that was used on that 1969 Mach 1 is Ford special paint code WT7034. It is not metallic but still very nice. Lookup WT7034. To order a sample of the paint I would suggest calling http://www.automotivetouchup.com and giving them WT7034 to see if they can come up with a formula. It is not a standard color but the Ford code WT7034 or PPG code 43817 might allow them to look it up. Otherwise Napa or Sherwin Williams stores will have the ability to mix it]
(message from Tim): I own a Mustang E'. I've been searching for others now for a long time. I have the Marti report and original sales receipt for verification. If anyone has any info or would like some info from mine email me at email@example.com thanks.
(message from dac1961): I also have a sapphire blue 66, special order paint. Buck tag line 3 says 65B SP. PAINT 62 (blue/wht pony), line 4 says WL MX7001168. I have found that 1168 was used by 1959 TBirds - Baltic Blue. My door tag is also blank for the color.
(message from JimmyinTEXAS): I have never seen a Pastel Blue Boss 302 in the wild. Great color and I have added a 1970 Pastel Blue Boss 302 to my bucket list.
(message from Butch): This Mustang is exactly like the one I had in high school in 1976. Right down to the color and the wheels. If I knew then what I know now. O well what great memories.
(message from Richard): Hello...I had the twin to your car...bought it in NOV 70 for just over $3K from Koons Ford in Annapolis, MD. Still have the bill of sale but, alas, not the car...loved that car...
(message from fivestar): Easy to say it is a beautiful car since I own one taht is also Silversmoke Gray. We are the second owners and bought it in 1973. Ours is a six with a white interior with black carpet. In my estimation the Silversmoke Gray has a bit of a classy look. A friend back in PA just bought a 65 with this paint color and it was originally a Colorado car that was sent to PA just recently. I have seen quite a few other Silversmoke Gray cars out here in Colorado and in Arizona growing up and even recently (where our 65 was bought originally). Enjoy your family heirloom!
