    Thanks Bob. I recall back years ago, in an issue of Turning Wheels, there was an article about the last hourly employees of SASCO.

    Quoted question: "I received 3 NOS fenders, among other items, with the car. The front drivers side one showing shipping to the original owners place of business. When was the last time parts like these could be ordered from SASCO?"

    Congratulations and keep us posted on your tinkering and adventures with it.
    That last photo makes me reeeeally wish either of my GTs had a four speed.
    Feel free to use the last picture on your desktop, I have it on mine....

    It makes me smile all day long...

    I bet it was changed at some point. The dealer invoice in Post #17 states "Push B. Radio", meaning it must have sold to George K. Iffland with one.

ID:	1901935 Some other interesting history. The original dealer invoice at date of purchase.
    I received 3 NOS fenders, among other items, with the car. The front drivers side one showing shipping to the original owners place of business. When was the last time parts like these could be ordered from SASCO?Click image for larger version
