     I think Armond (a forum member) restored the blue one. You might try the forum search function to see if there is any more info. I'm also fairly sure that the car was featured in Mustang Monthly about 4 years ago. Somewhere around the 50th anniversary timeframe.

Doesn’t Bob Teets have one. It was red IIRC. Haven’t heard or seen anything of him in a few years. Used to see him at some of the bigger Mustang events

Think I’m wrong about Bob Teets car. Think it was a 428 CJ High Country Special.
