I remember reading about the special flatbed chase "vehicle" that was used to get the high speed ground level footage. It was powered by a Chevy 427. Yikes!

Great minds think alike...Even though it's corny today, it used to be one of my favorite shows when I was growing up in the Sixties!

Barbara Eden was the perfect choice for the role of Jeannie. She had the "looks" then, and, just like the original Mustang, still looks great today. ;) Incidentally, the I Dream Of Jeannie TV show debuted in 1965. Barbara's Website .

I still have a set of them in my basement. I used to remove the chrome Cragar SS "mag" wheels every winter and use plain "steelies" with the Moonies on my HiPo '64 Fairlane Sports Coupe back in the Sixties.

Can't really tell, but I just noticed the date stamped on the edge of the photo is July '65, making that an almost brand new Mustang GT.

Can't tell for sure, but those could be off a Camaro.

I'd guess that display is from the 1965 Edition of the World's Fair. The first year of the Fair was 1964, and the fastback and HiPo option were not around in April when the Fair opened.

Didn't take owner long to mod the car though.
