A beautiful car for sure-  and it is still fast- the pic on the strip was taken at the Carlisle reunion of Cobra Jets.

Great Looking car. 

While looking at the pictures I noticed the "FORD" letters on the hood and also the "recessed" rear quarter panel reflector. 

I was always under the impression that these two features were found on the year 1967 mustang.

Was this possibly a conversion?

1968 was the first year of the quarter panel reflector.  The recessed reflector was present on early cars, with a changeover to the non-recessed reflector later in the model year.  I believe the "135" cars were all built in December 1967, so the recessed reflector is correct.  I can attest that this car is NOT a 'conversion' of any kind.

"December 1967"   - this answers my question regarding the two items.

I apologize for thinking this CJ possibly being a "conversion"
