It was ordered with White Vinyl interior and was delivered

with Chrome Beauty Rings and 66 Toronado type hubcaps because, according to the story,  Arlene saw them on the salesman's car and wanted them.

When told that they were not available on that car, she said "Put them on it or I'll go buy a Ford!" 

She got the hubcaps.

Front disc brakes and 15" wheels were an option on
this model for 1968.

However, the hubcaps are not shown on the window sticker as being part of the package, only the trim rings are listed. ?????? Did she get Stan Hovorka's hubcaps?


Another interesting fact:

When Park Price saw the 98 Holiday Coupe, he ordered one for himself.

Both cars are still on the road.
