    I received a call from a friend at the local Ford dealership and they thought it would be cool to have a "New -vs- Old" Shelby in the showroom. They asked to use my 1965 and of course I agreed... I was out of town last week and he took these pics for me. Anyway I thought it was cool to see it in the showroom 48 years later. The car has been there for 10 days now and I am suppose to go and pick it up tomorrow. He said they will get some more pics with the blue oval sign outside when it comes out. Looking forward to those pics.

    Did they show a comparison of new price in 65 and today. What was list in '65, about $1500, likely less?

    Base model was around $2400. Himark's is likely a tad higher, but awesome just the same.

    I remember Dad bought a new '67 Ford pickup for around $1200. Trucks were much cheaper back then than now. Go figger.

    Sweet ride, himark!

    A friend of mine had a 57 Tbird, the same thing happened to him, back in 2002. The local Ford dealer asked if they could put it on display, alongside one of the new/retro 2 seat Tbirds that came out in 2002. The dealer had more people wanting to buy the 57 than the new bird. I'm willing to bet, the same thing will happen with your car.

    And as far as getting a rise out of the dealership, my '71 Land Cruiser gets every salesman and service manager out to look at it when I pull into the local Toyota dealership. They've never asked to display it, though, since the owner's is in nicer condition and he displays it from time to time.

    I'm not into Fords but you have a Gem there, very nice ... The Dodge dealer wanted to put my Plymouth on display, even offered to sell it for me ... If I was going to own a Ford that would be it ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    I really, really love the GT 350. My absolute favorite Shelby Mustang. To me, the color just screams Shelby. Would LOVE to have a ride in one. Dealerships, love to pictures of the old cars their dealerships marketed. Here is mine, though my name is the same as the Dealership, we are not related. Please don't take this as hijacking your neat thread.

    Dave K, you mean to tell me there are 2 Katterheinrichs in the same city and they are not related. That is hard to believe. That would be like 2 Darr Wilsons in the same city and the other one not being my son.

    Mark,

    Is your car an original R-code? I ask because of the front bumper and rear glass in your pictures. I am a Mustang nut myself:) You either get it or you don't. But for me, the Mustang holds a special place in my heart!
