I know. Different grille, side trim, guages, etc but it was a black Sprint 6 with wires and the white pinstripe.

I agree that having number 1 might have some premium value but having #2 and later wouldn't.

Looked at objectively, the first cars of any model are ones to generally stay away from and wait until they fix all the teething problems before buying.

In general (I except out any model that went over the Great Disaster year of 1972) the last cars are usually the best with everything well sorted and often additional features included.

289, 4 speed, console, and the pinstripe was actually chrome tape that I applied myself.

I stayed away from the '07 models when looking for mine.

Hell for all I know I might have one of the first 100 turbos. I know it's an early car. I know if I was selling it I wouldn't be mentioning it was a very early car.

No way! A black Mustang with spoke hubcaps has to have whitewalls. Right, Mike?

One of the first 1,000 Solstice might have an increased value - they came with some sort of plaque - not that I would expect that to increase the value by a lot - just saying that it was something unique to only that batch of cars.
