Maybe Jeff can help me on this one.
I have a 66 Mercury Cyclone 390 GT convertible VIN 6H28Sxxxxxx
6 - 1966
H - Lorain Ohio manufacture
28 - Indy Pace Car 2 door convertible
S - 390
The usual VIN for a standard GT would be 6H29S
The thing is, I don't know if my car is a PC or not
Mercury history is rather vague to say the least, and so far, I've found that of the 100 Indy Pace Cars, 3 had a special installed 427 and they were the actual pace cars used to lead the race cars around the track. 33 were fitted with a frame to hold flags. All cars were candy apple red with parchment interiors and white top. All but the 3 with the 427's had 390/335 hp but actually had 355hp and all had high lift cams and dual exhaust, handling package, power disc brakes, Rally-pac gauges and a dash mounted tach, and all had 28 in the VIN instead of 29.
My car was stripped and media blasted for the restoration and unfortunately the ID plate was not refitted so I only have the VIN stamped on the front bulkhead near the radiator for ID. Everything in the car is standard 390 GT and it doesn't have Pace Car extras like disk brakes, brake booster, rally-pac gauges, and parchment interior.
The interior could have been changed but I don't think anyone would change disk brakes back to drum and there were no holes in the original dash top where Rally-pac gauges would have been.
There are numbers stamped on the inner fenders but I canít find any references to these.
Any advice appreciated.
