They look similar to what I remember being on a Merc Cougar. Had the sequential turn sigs maybe.

Throwing out a guess, the T-Bird and the Cougar. I know the Mustang wasn't highly regarded in some circles, add some bolt- ons and make it "special".

The 65 Thunderbird and the 68 and 69 California Special and oh yeah another lesser known Mustang, the Shelby!

They were called California Special GT/CS.
Only a five month run, designed by Shelby Automotive (while working with Ford). Only 4118 units produced. The first one of those I saw was pink!
Where in God's name did you find them?

It's Dinger's

Yep I was talking to you. I had forgotten that the light assy originally came from the 65 T-Bird. I was thinking they were Cal. Spec. only which would have made them very dear. But since they were used on the T-bird also probably everyone has half a dozen in their junk. Never mind.
I always thought that T-bird body style was probably the nicest one Ford made. A Candy Apple Red convertible with a white interior, top down, man they were pretty!

The Buick ain't bad either!

The Buick ain't bad either, duh, I guess not. One of the most stunning cars ever made!

I didn't like the Thunderbird until I got old. Honestly, I didn't think a thing of them but now I think they are a damn cool looking car. It still blows my mind that these cars were unibodies!

A good friend of mine derbied a few of the 58-59 T-Birds, rust free Ca. cars, along with a 57 Merc 2 Dr. Wagon. Back in the early 80's.


The model T sold millions. What model car was the second best seller, one year sales and what year was this car sold.

Dinger I'm not sure what your asking. Are you asking what model car was the second best selling of all times or just one year? Also are we talking only American cars or cars world wide? Are you using the Model T as the best selling car? Inquiring minds want to know!

American car, model name, one year only. This is actually the best selling car for a one year model. The T outsold this car when you add the numbers over the years produced. Over a million were sold in a year, 2 doors, 4 doors, converts, etc.

Before you said four doors I was going to go with the 66 Mustang. They sold something crazy like 600k coupes alone!

You have peaked my interest, I am dying to hear what it was.

WOW! Now you have me doing research. This months Hemmings Classic Car magazine has the 65 Impala as the single year best seller other than the T. They have a total of 1,046, 514 sold but when I look at the 64 production numbers they clearly outsold the 65. Time to shoot an email to Hemmings.

Your floor, BB.
