    I see your car has the red/white/blue hubcaps as well. I have been trying to find out if that was an option on the Sport Fury or standard....Yours is only the 3rd car I have seen with them including mine. Annnnd, all 3 were 426-S cars. Your car appears to be either Chestnut Metallic or Sandalwood from the photo's.

    Not that unusual but very few were built. In 2003 Galen's registry had 8 convertible 426 cars listed like mine and 27 hardtops. I dare say there have been much more added.

    No mention of the red/white & blue hubcaps in my original factory brochure. If anyone can solve the mystery please do so.

    Someone hand painted these hubcaps long before I got the car. Lots of brush strokes, and low quality paint. So unfortunately I can't add a data-point on this for you.
    In fact it appears they ran out of time, cause they were only able to get 3 of them done? or the unpainted one is from another set, as the red in the center has much less fade than the rest.

    Chestnut Metallic.

    I just now realized there is a flat black section between the ribbed portion and the smooth center portion...never noticed that....I wish I knew if this was original or not.
