Default 135032, a ‘68 428CJ “135” engineering car still in hands of original owner

Cool history, interesting video. Car received an automatic conversion, 4.30 gears, and “Swiss Cheese” weight reduction before being bought by a FoMoCo Engineer. https://www.youtube.com/watch?app=desktop&v=DmDiFgFp5mI

This guy was the nicest of nice guys!!!

He and his wife drove the car on the roads to MCACN in November!!!

This car and family were my personal pick of the entire show and I coerced Kevin Oeste V8TV to meet them and do an interview with them.

We had trouble during move in fitting the cars in that section and Roger was so accommodating and cooperative and eventually we got his car set up in a perfect location!!!

SNG Super Nice Guy.

I was able to contact Roger and have been exchanging emails with him. He remembers you, Ryan, and your efforts at MCACN and wanted me to thank you for all of your help and courtesy at the show. He does very much conduct himself as the nicest of nice guys

Nice to hear that.

Thank you.

We were having a bit of an issue “squeezing” some cars together, and Roger was a gem about the whole thing!!

PS: I would have the original wheels and tires back on that car so fast it would make your head spin!!!! (But he has had 50 years to get bored with the steelies)
