Nope, I'll give you a hint, it is part of a "package". In other words one "coupe" could have it and another won't depending on the "Package".

Nope, not a "Super Sport" but you are on the right track.

Remember what one of my favorite cars is, I own one.

Yep, all Gran Sports had a "Convertible" boxed frame regardless of body style.

Good going Photographer.

Hows this for a bonus, there WAS another car of which a few were made and I think a real "Production" car. What was it?

But you have the floor sir.

Another missing in action?

Ok, photographer, it's your floor and when you have a question take over. But I have to ask one that I found today while working on my car that I had forgot about.

I don't know when this started or ended (maybe it hasn't but I don't care about late models so I haven't looked lately.).

On let's say a mid sixties GM car. You can walk up to a car and KNOW what year it is by looking in a particular place. It says it, right there as plain as day what year it is. This is not hidden, it has nothing to do with any VIN tag or anything like that. It is a part bolted on the car that has this date clear as day.

Where is it?

Brian

Very good Dan! I had forgotten about this and while restoring the tail lamps on my Gran Sport I saw it. Being the Gran Sport has those huge tail lamps that go all the way across the back there are six lenses. Every one of them clearly have a "65" on them. The only time when you can be fooled is if the same lamp is used for a few years (the 65 Skylark was one year only) and they have the first year only on the lamps.

But that was kinda strange don't you think? I know of no other part they ever did that with. Why not? Why not a "65" on the grille or something else?

All I know is manufacturers who put part numbers on there parts are my friend. Few things make you feel better around the body shop than needing a strange part and you get the old, damaged one, and there is a number right on it. YA HOO!

Dan, go for it until the Photographer comes back.

Brian

Brian, that would be cool if the dates were on the part somewhere, that would probably add something like .0005 cents to each part and the car companies would be deeper in debt...

Ford Motor company has built presidential limos for many years. What did they charge the government for the Licoln they built (rebuilt, actually) right after the Kennedy assination?

My recollection, dim as it often is , is that they did it as a 'good will' gesture to clean up the splatters of red and gray glop from both JFK and John Connolly, price $0.00

Nope. I heard the sum, a minimal rental fee, on the History channel the other night. A hint, they don't issue this sum as a paper or coin amount.
