Is it in the registry with the door tag info? Wonder what body style is on tag. Weird no pic of that.

This one is listed both in the Hipo registry and the In Search of Mustangs book. Neither have information beyond the VIN. My thought is that the registry received the VIN and the In Search of Mustangs copied it. It could also be the other way around but either way it does not help.

I don't want to help write the book for how to build a fake K but whatever this is, It didn't start as a Hipo

Opening sentence in EBay add sums it up THIS IS A TRULY UNBELIEVABLE CAR

It's very convenient that it's not on the car. A sceptical person might think this is deliberate......oh wait :evil:

This Kar ended on Ebay 7-10-2016 with a high bid of $15,005.00 with 26 bids from 11 bidders. It did not meet the sellers reserve and therefore did NOT sell.

Good evening from Europe,

you can find a photo of the VIN in Ray Miller´s book "Mustang Does It!" on page 137. Unfortunately this is the only information in the book. It was published in January 1978, so there is a realistic chance that the author has engaged the first owner and might have some additional information.

Best regards
Daniel

The picture in the book is only there to illustrate the "k" in the serial number. It sure is a coincidence that this number would show up again on a questionable car 38 years later. The picture of the VIN stamp looks old even back then.

I sold these books over the parts counter when I was a Ford parts manager at the time. I gave the book to any customer who purchased $1,000 in parts for their cars at one time. I did manage to give a fair number away with that promotion.

Well, I pulled my copy of the Ray Miller book, and the cover jacket has a very similar gold-colored GT convertible (but NOT a HiPo). The photo of the fender VIN on page 137 is a match for sure, but unfortunately the rest of the kar isn't visible as if to tease us all these years later. Just amazing that Daniel made this discovery and brought it up in this thread.

"Mustang Does It" was the first in depth book on the Mustang being published in 1978. With that however came many errors, misinformation and obvious mistakes. While it is interesting to look at, it is hardly a reliable source for correct information.

The book was shot with mostly California cars from the 75-77 time frame so the possibility is there that this car was in the area during that time. Having said that, here are a few concerns:

The name on the pink slip is also the name of a used car dealer in Cali.
The pink slip does appear to be legit.
The car would need a thorough inspection.
The exhaust system is a Midas system that wasn't available until the late eighties. Judging by the visible date codes I'd put this system installed in the 90-91 time frame. It shows obvious use after that time making the "out of service" time frame less plausible.
The Midas coil overs are a nice touch. ;)

As I said previously, this is an interesting car. A closer inspection would be needed to determine if it was legit.

The California pink slip shows it as a SED and not a CV.

The steering box shown as a GT is actually for PS and NOT for a manual steering GT although it is the same ratio

It's too bad there wasn't an effort to do better research at that time. I'll bet all the production data regarding the K Code Mustangs was still in the FORD data base. Should of, could of, would of...

There is a picture of the block casting with a 1967 date code. Definitely NOT an original engine. I wonder if it is even a Hipo? At least the heads appear to be Hipo heads. The harmonic balancer appears to be a tad narrow to me.

It does not have the extra convertible fender apron braces that were standard, as far as I know, on convertibles in 1966.
