The rader wheels sure look nice polished up and new. Could be the one Virgil Brown owned? I think he had a nice green with saddle interior G. I wouild think it could be figured out as it has to be a DSO 84 G car green with saddle interior. Royce or Jim could look it up.
This is a very rare wheel found only on early xr7G models. Soon after being put into service the wheels were found to have multiple short-comings including flexing, cracking and lug seating problems. They were officially recalled and replaced with...
Not that it's a big deal, but if it's the black Gurney car the owner don't live in Livonia Mi. I'm going to get the b&w photo my neighbor has. It's from the 1968 Auto show at Cobo Hall in Detroit. Back then the auto show was in Dec of 1967. If I remember the photo right it didn't seem to be black. Hard to tell in a b&w photo, but it didn't seem to be that dark.
Hello Jim, was the car sold and licensed on the road? What kind of milage does it have on it now? It sure looks sharp in the picture but the dress has got to go. Thank you BossGTE for the awesome picture.
I agree that the pic makes it look dark green, but the only G that I know of that was ever at Cobo Hall at the show was Gurneys' black car. As far as I know that car has not subsequently ever been shown to the public. And, Jon, did Joe move ?
I don't know the last address you had for him Jim, but Joe has lived in Allen Park for years. Jim a question for you if I may? The pic that my neighbor has (if I remember correctly) is of the prototype. Back in Dec of 67 is when Detroit put on the auto show. This is the question, I believe all the hertz cars and dso 84 were made in Feb.or March or even later. Once again you would know better then I would. Wouldn't have Gurneys car have been a dso 84 car? I lost my copy of the G registry when my computer crashed. I'm just thinking this car on this thread is not the one at the Detroit auto show.
Jon -- You are absolutely correct. Don't know why I said Livonia as Joe looks nothing like Jack Roush The picture at the beginning of this thread is definitely of Cobo Hall; I have other pictures of this same display but without the G car in them. Check the background picture of Gurney, for instance. And my copy of the G Registry is out in the shop and I'm in the house at the moment. Can't recall of Gurneys' G car was an 84 DSO or not, but probably. Will look tomorrow.
The car that Gurney never got was built in March 68, long after December 67. The only G that existed in December 67 was a converted '67 that is copper colored in all photos I have seen. This one has a lot of proper March '68 looking parts on it.
