I should have done this instead of posting my question on stockerbill's thread.

I don't think I ever shared these documents before, these are for the blue J-code that was on Ebay in the summer of 2020:

Original engine and trans are long gone as is the metal dash panel. Interior has Standard door panels and most plastics are replacements of the wrong colors. I have some sketchy anecdotal history on the car from the PO that leads me to guess that it was parted out at some point in its life. According to the invoice it was sold inside of Ford, so who knows what kind of shape it was in when it finally left Ford's care and was sold off to the public. It has had some questionable repairs done to it and a lot of the desirable original bits are gone.

Anybody care to enlighten me on why somebody would put fog lights under the car aimed at the rear tires? I guess cool night time burnouts?

Did you know that the "T" in the "T.O." box at the bottom of the Eminger Invoice indicates this car was a Ford Test Vehicle? I own the first Boss 351 Test Vehicle. I wonder what they were testing with these vehicles and how we could find out?

It will be interesting to get the history if you ever do, because it's definitely a cool Stang !!
