I hope Geo. has no problem with me posting this, as it came from the PI News magazine listed above, I hope it is OK.

I thought it may be of benefit to the community, and it is within the stated scope of PI's mission...


PS>  The cover photo is Byron Tomingas' car...  Interesting mags/tires, and no gill on the driver's side...  Things were different in 1980, when people drove the He-double-L out of these cars!

PSS>  I wish I had a better scanner!  I uploaded the pictures at a high resolution, so if they don't come out, you can open them from the box below...

This is interesting. Mine beast is 1974 serial no 6997 Euro GTS so pretty late in the Ford relationship , if not sold after it had finished. I suspect the body was Hammered out  sometime in late 73 and loosely bolted together very late 73 early 74. 

It was a factory RHD euro delivery which was  first sold  out of  Rome and then privately imported into Australia. 

From the changes section above I think the car has the following :

1,2,3,4,10,12 and 13.

It may have had 6 but if so they were ghastly and I have replaced them. 

It did not have changes 5,7,8,9 and 11. 

It has P265/50/R15 on the back and P245/50Hr14 on the front so it is looooow . No idea where the Rims  came from but they have never been anywhere near Modera. More like the rims in the photo above . 

So a bit of a halfway point in the path to a 1980's version. 



I am good Thx. I blew up the image on my monitor to 250 % and saved a clip I can read it now Getting old man 62  and still kicking smile. I just thought you had the pictures shot (like on your phone) and could email them. I have been collecting data and info about our cars 20 years and I started a project to get it correlated but it is far from finished. I am going to ask people here if they want a link to my google drive maybe it will help someone.

There is never enough time. Redoing my 1999 GT Vert Mustang right now.
