https://www.mecum.com/lots/SC0523-55...table-hardtop/

When you have a super successful product like the Mustang, you experiment with all different variations to see if you can capture more of your intended market. Out of all the "experiments" only one succeeded and went into production: the fastback. All the others didn't:

2 seater, 4 doors, wagon, 4 wheel drive and this one: retractable hard top.




Sorry for the crap quality. It was the only video that showed how it worked.

As far as restorations, this one year only color Iris Mist 3x2 Convertible of Paulís is as close to 100% correct as one can get. Gorgeous GTO.

P-2 = Iris Mist, Black top
5N = GTO option

----Love this GTO even more now that I've seen these pics, Chris. Thanks! Had I ordered a 65 new I would only have changed the interior to white along with the top, but this one is still absolutely striking.....Bill S

This GTO is stunning!! I do not like white soft tops but as Bill S said a white interior would be even better!! - Bill W
