Don Stone Ford, Bloomington Illinois.
#1
Don Stone Ford , 1508 Morrissey Dr. Bloomington Illinois....Anyone on the forum remember this place? It's transferred ownership a couple times since the 70's and is now called Sam Leman Ford...I'm tracking my cars history down and this is the dealership that sold it new, a Blue Glow 1973 Mach 1 Mustang with a 351 4v. I've tried googleing and the info is pretty sparse. Would be cool to see what the place looked like back then. Anyway, if anyone knows anything about it, please let me know.

You might check with the local news paper. If they have scanned images of the old papers you might look for news paper ads for the dealership in that era. Might have a picture of your car in the Sunday paper for sale, lol. I was looking through some old papers that my mom put up from the Kennedy assassination. Car ads are a hoot back then soooo cheap.

As for Ebay, when you search for something and results are displayed, there is an option to save the search and be notified when similar search results are available.

Thanks for the help guys, I’ve got searches saved on both sites. Maybe I’ll get lucky and someone will have on old pic or ad or something...hell I’d be happy with a keychain! I mostly just wanted to start a thread with this title in the hopes that someone in the interwebs may come across it and have some info for me.
