HISTORY, STORY, EXPERIENCE, COMMENTS
My wife, Susan, bought a car like the one shown in the picture when she graduated high school in May of 1968. She was working her first job. You can see from Bill of Sale that it cost a whooping $2863.75 cash. I was down at U of I, Champaign-Urbana, studying pre-dentistry. We were going steady then (pretty much engaged) and got married in 1970 and that's when the car became "part mine." We kept it about 2 years and then bought a new 1973 red Ford Torino with a black vinyl top. PICTURE IS NOT OUR MUSTANG but our car looked almost exactly like the one pictured here. I looked and looked and could not find a picture of our own exact car which doesn't surprise me; I was studying in dental school and she could care less about cars.
