Hemisfair G on display

There were only 619 XR7-Gs built. They were built along side the Shelby Mustang, and were available with every engine and transmission offered in 1968, (except the 427). This was the first Cougar to be a part of the Hertz Rent a Racer program. If you have any information about these rare cats, this is the place to share. The XR7-G registry is maintained by Royce Peterson.

My G was built Feb. 28th. The second G was built March 11th. My car did not remain on display for the entire Hemisfair as it was sold to the first owner Sept 30th.

I have to believe that if my GT-E was at Hemisfair it couldn't have been there very long, maybe only at the opening. Maybe it was only there until the G car was available to fill the spot if at all.
