First hardtop convertible Mustang? LOL

This convertible is a 1969 Shelby GT500 Fastback Mustang Convertible in Playboy Pink. Pictured with the car is Playmate Connie Kreski. Each year since 1964, Playboy has put out a car fit for its “Playmate of the Year Cars” edition of the magazine.


Found this picture and description in an article this morning. I thought I was missing something

Connie died in 1995, so if she was leaning on me I'd be jumping up in a panic and running and screaming.

"I love my Hookers!" and "Get some Strange" probably have a different connotation to non automotive enthusiasts!

They hardly ever get it right. But there is a couple Hard Tops for verts out there.
The guy that designed the original retractable hard tops 57, 58, 59, did I think 16, 1965 Mustangs with retractable hard tops. What killed them they were all 6 cylinders I think. So he never made any more.
There were also two manufacturers that made removable hard tops for the 1965 Mustang vert. The Towne Top and Parish Plastics. It is shown in the book Mustang Does It.
I have three of the Town Tops, two black with stainless strip and one white. I have some NOS emblems, and advertising and the sales records. Ford did not make them but Ford sold them. One I have was sold new at TASCA Ford in R.I..
They make a vert more enjoyable lot quieter and better seal on the windows. They were made by Dory Development. Did not sell good either so dropped and pretty rare. Were $289 new.
They might display one in the MOM in the accessory display.
Another guy tried to make and sell a removable hard top that looked like a fastback. Cost too much and he only sold you a shell and you have to find the side scoops, rear window and trim and make if fit. You could not open the trunk with the top on.
The guy holding the white one was the dad to man I purchased white one from in Michigan several years back.
Each top does have a serial # stamped inside on one of the headliner bows so you can track where they were sold. MM did article on them and said only 3 existed, lol, they did not get it right either. When I told them they said that ads were placed in magazines, hemmings, MCA club magazines for 35 years and only three had turned up. I have see seven myself but most were basked cases. You can actually get the original material to recover them and new headliner.

I do not remember his name. He was the dad of the guy I bought the top from. North of Dearborn MI. Little town looked like you were in Germany.
I drove from N.C. to Grand Rapids non stop to pick up a car then to get the top and made it to Tenn. and had to sleep 3 hours. When I went to turn in the dolly U-Haul, it was less than 24 hours since I picked it up but they charged me 3 days said it takes that long to make the trip, lol. I hate to stop once I get going.
