I missed a really nice pair of early March dated exhaust manifolds by less than 5 minutes  :'(

The manifolds were off an early 1968 Cougar engine that was also there. The owner told me that it was from a Cougar (Jan block with Feb and March components on it)

I did find some other stuff however traffic, interest and sales of stuff in the swap meet area seemed to be a lot lower to me.

It was still a good time. I got a chance to visit with a bunch of guys from the Registry over the course of the weekend and the weather was a lot better that what had been forecast.

The 4th week Jan vin stamped block and 16 bolt machined first week Feb heads were from a Ford Promo ad magazine car scheduled built Feb 20th 1968. The vin is known to the Cougar Club of America. It is the earliest Cougar R known produced.
This is the earliest verified CJ engine assembly with CJ exhaust manifolds I have recorded. I had those heads dates recorded previously machined to 14 bolt manifolds. It is clear to see they were machined for either W code 390 manifolds or the new 428 CJ manifolds. Unfortunately the car is unknown today. Maybe the new owner of the engine will order the Marti Report. It was a Glacier Blue with Blue Knitted Buckets, GT optioned XR7 model with a extremely rare G code 3.25 Traction Loc and automatic transmission. The engine got a great home and I hope to see more photos.

I think with the threat of rain some stayed away. There were a lot of empty spots in the swap area.

I was there on Friday with my truck  as they wanted rain??? But it worked out as I bought a ton of parts for my 64 Fairlane. I took the 65 on Saturday and also spent most of the day in the parts section.

There weren't a lot of CJ's there that I saw - maybe 15-20 including Torinos & Cougars.
As far as a 135 car this is as close to seeing one that I saw.  :(
