|America's Number 1 Teenage Model! #1 ('Teen - December 1964)
Consisting almost entirely of direct quotes, this first extended article on Colleen is also one of the few to have a byline. However, it does contain the usual errors regarding the starting age for Colleen's career- and Colleen is the one making the error! Colleen actually began modeling for Ford at the age of eleven, but the circumstances regarding her start are not entirely clear. Despite the story that Colleen presents here, there are other versions that she tells in later articles.
