I collect anything mustang, but mainly stick to the brochures and magazine ads. I do have an unopened quart of "Mustang Motor Oil" in the old cardboard round can by the Mustang oil company. Which reminds me, there is a guy who attends the Portland swap meet (it is in one month) every year that has a few of these left and sells them for around $20, if anyone is interested I can pick one up for them.
Also, Steve do you have the original magazine ad of the '72 sprint fastback and coupe with the surfer in the background? I won a bid on ebay for multiple ads and wound up with a couple of these and could part with one if you are interested!!

Yes, I have the two different surfer ads and the ad with the Mustang, Maverick, and Pinto trio, and I have them framed and hanging in the shop. Thanks, though.

I collect the old ads although I havent added one to my collection in a while. Also have the Life magazine with the Mustang intro in it along with a sorta postcard thing the dealers gave out with the Mustang standard equipment and options listed from '64 (picture of a lady and a white coupe with "FORD MUSTANG- The car designed to be designed by you!" above it on the front, list on the back). Lucked upon the card, was stuck in a back case of an antique shop here. I have an unused Ford pay envelope from the 50's too .

I plan on buying the '70 Mach 1 ads this May at a car show that we go to. They usually have them for under $5 or so.

Dozens of diecasts, hot wheels, models etc...
Original Shelby dealer ads given to me by M&Mer CharlieB.
Posters up the whazooo!
Three Snap-on Mustang mini-tool boxes. A white 64.5, black 79 Pace car, and red 94. Still want the burgundy 68 and blue 70 Boss mini tool box.

The entire Ford dealer snow village. Has the dealership with a red Mustang on a turnstyle in the front window, three ceramic mustangs displayed outside the dealership and a Ford tow truck and a lift. Also a billboard for the dealership.
Lots of Mustang Pace car stuff. All three years. 64.5, 79, 94. Photographs of the cars at Indy.
Magazine articles, ads. My favorite ad that I have two copies of came from Teen and Seventeen magazines in 1966. Shows a young girl on sitting on the hood of a PINK 66 coupe. Caption says "Drive a Mustang the same shade as your lipstick." Was for a cosmetic company contest.
A 67 ad of the Mustang Pledge.
Have a Pink 66 shelby 1/18 diecast too.
All three, red, white, and black Jim Beam 65 whiskey decanters, unopened still full.
Also an Ezra Brooks 79 Pace car unopened whiskey decanter.
Six Mustang cookie jars.
Just bought posters of 20th, 25th, 30th, and 35th Mustang Aniversaries. Will frame them and group them together.
Two Mustang barstools.
Also have a huge 2001 Bullitt banner, 4x10ft. It is a prize possession - given to us by a very special person.
There's more, but you get the idea, I'll buy anything Mustang.
J.

It didn't occur to me until now, but I guess you could say I collect Ford technical literature, especially from Ford's Total Performance days. I get them mostly from Osborn's and I've been putting them in binders to try to organize them.

On the binders, I stick my collection of Ford decals, like Autolite, Ford Muscle Parts, Shelby, etc...

Coffee mugs! I have about 1/2 dozen Mustang ones in my collection of over 200 mugs from around the world. Come to think of it, I don't have one from every state yet - missing about 12. Maybe I'll take an inventory and ask you guys and grrls to help me out

That would be cool, I'd be happy to help. I have quite a few coffee mugs, too. I asked Pam what she thought of me making a rack to display them in the kitchen and she looked at me like I was crazy.

M&M Mugs, Great idea. I'd get a set.

I collect the brochures and window stickers for all vehicles I've purchased. Also, the sale ads. I have also kept one of each of my license plates, up to 5 now. I also have managed to keep one key from each of the vehicles too. Not a vast collection, but they have significance to me.

Steve, when we had our kitchen redone quite a few years ago, I had a shelf installed below the wall cabinets for my mugs. Thought that would be enough for all of them. Now, 3/4 of the collection is in boxes Every few months, I rotate them. I use 90% of them for my morning coffee.

Used to collect stuff but recently gave to a friend, a huge magazine collection, keeping only Mustang ones. My MMonthly is only lacking the first year and a half. Have some Mustang brochures from 65-68 and a few ads. My favorite is a full page color from Life, entitled Six and The Single Girl. It features an identical twin to MY 66. I have the orig plate for my 66 and 67(which is a 2 yr plate. Goes on my 68 re- registered. Also had a lot of Corvette stuff which I sold.

A new thing I've started collecting are Autolite Shop Tips. These are technical handouts Autolite used to send to Ford mechanics and parts people, usually discussing new Ford products and repair techniques. They give cool insight into the world of Ford Service in the '60s and '70s.

I collect ads, but only the ones pertaining to the FoMoCo vehicles I own. I collect 42-47 truck ads, since I like the 42-47 trucks (owned 5 so far). I've collected about 35 ads for those trucks. I also collect '57 Fairlane ads, and '70 Mustang ads. I also collect die cast cars of all types, FoMoCo and not.
