Re: The Mustangs Unlimited GTE is back for Sale

This would be a fun car to own as a driver. But I would expect to pay much less than a true GTE. The Aruba Eliminator comes to mind as what would be considered original.

With the lower argent silver paint, body moulding and upper body color combination, the vinyl top was just a bit much for my liking.
My thoughts exactly! It's like a 3-tone.

Re: CCOA 50th Anniversary Shirts for the '68s
