The standards are rarer. I believe the total GTE production is 395 of which 101 were 427 powered standard GTE's. I have the latest registry on disc at work, the total figure is approximate. The 101 is from Kevin Marti's book Cougar....by the Numbers. Total 427 GTE production was 357, the rest being 428CJ powered. I don't have the 428CJ breakdown for GTE's.
The GT-E on ebay is mine. If anyone has any questions, feel free to give me a call on my cell phone anytime at 803 - 645-5307. If I don't answer, leave me a message and I'll call you back. I sold my other GT-E and 429CJ Cougar on ebay last year and was going to keep this one to restore but I'm in the middle of restoring my 69 CJ Mustang and have two many projects going. However if anyone knows of a CJ or Boss car I would be interested in trading.
A friend of mine spotted the car on ebay and said i should buy it since i live so close, (spartanburg SC ) I would looove to have it but unfortunately have way tooo many projects in the fire, so i thought i would come on here and post a message telling you guys about it but as usual i found that i was the one behind on the news. Great job guys on keeping your eyes peeled for these very rare cats. ,,,,, Someone in here needs to give this cat a new home, and if someone does and needs help restoring it let me know , i would be glad to help. Thanks jack
Not that it matters, but I don't think a full restoration was needed. Or atleast not what my definition of a full resoration is. For a car that rare, I quite honestly would have paid about $25K, but fortunately for me I don't have an extra 25K laying around. My wife would absolutely kill me if I had bought that car right now.
For now my Johnny Lightning GTE will have to do.
Thanks for everyones interest in the GTE I had on ebay. It really sold for $25,000 which is what I had told everyone that asked me the "stop auction" price for it. Several people wanted it but I took the first one that could get me a deposit. The only two GT-E's that I have seen on ebay recently are the two that I have sold. I sold them because I am looking for a nice driver or restored GT-E so if anybody knows of one for sale, please let me know.
