Got a new prize for the Mustang today!
#1
Last week I read a thread posted by Boss1Ray about Mustangs originally from Oklahoma. Mine is from Shawnee, Kansas. I decided to look up the dealer and give them a call. I explained that I am restoring a 73 Mustang originally purchased at their dealership and would like to see if they had a license plate frame bearing their name that I could put on my car. They don't have the frames anymore, but they did offer to send one of their license plates that had their name on it. I thought that would be cool. I figured that they would send a cardboard or plastic plate like we use at the dealership I work for, but no! it is stamped metal. not only did he send me one, but sent me five of them! The guy I talked to is John in the parts dept. Damn nice guy! He wouldn't let me pay for them either! Nice way to end the work week!

Cool plate! The dealership my 73 came from is still there, but the name changed many years ago. They did not have any of the old records or name plates.

That is great! And that is usually all it takes. Sometimes you get nada but don't give up!

Excellent score!

I contacted the (old - no longer in biz) dealership owners in Cordell Oklahoma - where the Boss was sold new. They actually found some old polariods from when the car was new - sitting in front of the dealership! They were all damaged from poor storage but myself and a friend worked some Photoshop magic to clean one of them up!

Iyman - check the obit with names. You will find one or more of the relatives will have some memorabilia from the old dealership - even pens, coffee cups, etc. Good luck in your hunting!
