Red GT-E - Mecum Indy - May 2018

The GT-E was only available for a few brief months in 1968. Total production would not have kept the assembly line busy for more than a half day. If you know anything about a GT-E, it is important, and this is the place to share it. The GT-E registry is maintained by Jim Pinkerton.

I am fixing the door lights and removed the door panels. Here are two shots of the door sheet metal codes. Passenger is 25 January 1968. Driver is 20 February 1968. Both predate the 15 March 1968 build date of the car.

If you want to look for them the outer shell of the doors has another stamping date but they are under the outer belt line molding/window rub

The inside of both door skins have the sound deadener and look very original. Pretty sure of what I will find. All sheet metal so far has correct dates for the build date.
