Key to Notes:

  1. Early literature and some magazine tests show a projected base price of $4311.

  2. The convertibles were "company" cars, not intended for conventional retail sale.

  3. While one prototype was built and tested, no other examples have surfaced.

  4. Originally sold to Hertz Corporation, these cars were not for conventional retail sale.

  5. This engine is the 302tp, not the standard "J"-code 302 used in production GT350s.

  6. Due to production shortages, an unspecified number of 390 units were substituted. There was no dealer notification, nor are the cars identifiable by any known means.

  7. While this engine appears on the list of options, no examples have been documented. Ford dealer notices show this engine was dropped from production in Dec., 1967.

  8. 1970 figure is combined from both models - no breakdown is currently available. All 1970 cars were factory-converted (& should be deducted) from 1969 production.
