1985 Ford MustangGreat project car ready and waiting for the right person to take over!I started this project several years ago and unfortunately must let someone else finish it due to the fact I simply don't have the time.
Most interior and body parts that you'll need to complete this project will be included with the car, except for certain incidentals like head lights or door handles and a few other misc. items. Also included are extra hard to find parts I scavenged off another convertible parts car...some of these parts you can not find other than in a salvage yard. The convertible top is beyond hope and will need to be replaced.
The following is a rundown of the work I have done to the car. Only serious inquires please. This could be an awesome one of kind project car or great parts car.
