This is not your typical worn out Mustang that someone is trying to get rid of before it falls apart.
Due to some recent unexpected events, we are reluctantly selling our beautiful Mustang . It is a factory V8 with the original 289 2 barrel engine . It is only a 2 owner car that has been extremely well cared for . It has always been in California and stored indoors and never stored near the beach so there is no rust and there has not been ANY rust repair . It still has the original factory smog equipment that is in perfect working order . The license plates are the ones that were assigned to the car when it was new.
We have thousands of dollars in receipts that document the maintenance over the years and those go with the car.
Ask questions before you buy any car . You don't want to buy one that someone claims is in good condition then have to spend thousands of dollars buying a ton of little AND big things for it.
It has factory air conditioning and the compressor has been upgraded to a rotary typ, It blows ice cold and all the fan speeds on the a/c blower work . If a car has air conditioning that does not work, you could easily spend $800.00 or more getting it to work.
PERFORMANCE
It runs and drives as good as it did the day it was new . It instantly starts in all weather conditions and the carburetor choke functions properly which they rarely do . There is NO lifter noise ever . The original transmission has been rebuilt and SHIFTS LIKE NEW and it does NOT drift or wander on the highway even at autobahn speeds . The brakes do NOT pull to either side when stopping and the brake pedal does NOT creep down . There is NO whine or other noise from the differential . There are NO squeaks or rattles when hitting a bump.
These V8 Mustangs run very well but are not extremely fast by todays standards like some people think they are, and the throttle opening can easily be regulated to slow them down which also makes them a good choice for kids too if you are considering buying yours their first car.
ENGINE OPERATING TEMPERATURE
These cars only had 2 row radiators and Ford tested them in the WINTER so they never noticed that they can run a little warmer in blazing hot climates especially if they have air conditioning . Also, after all these years, the radiators can get partially clogged or the water pump impeller can get partially eaten away which further reduces cooling efficiency, therefore it is very important to determine if any car you buy runs hotter than it should,m because getting one to cool properly can easily cost $600.00 or more . This car has a new water pump and the larger 3 row US made radiator . The Chinese radiators have 25% smaller tubes, therefore they don't work nearly as well as a US made one with the same number of rows . One easy way to tell if a cars cooling system is good is to simply let it idle for around 10 minutes . If it has air conditioning, turn that on also . If it isn't hurling water out like Old Faithful Geyser by then, it is probably fine . This engine NEVER runs hot even with the A/C on in 90 degree temperatures.
OPTIONS
The factory options are power steering, front disc brakes (very rare), deluxe Pony interior, air conditioning, automatic transmission, and tinted windows.
INTERIOR
This car came with deluxe pony interior from the factory as designated on the ORIGINAL door tag, not a reproduction tag which often do not reflect the original options. The color is a gorgeous deep red with white accents . The optional deluxe interior is extremely luxurious and comes with specially molded door panels, special seat covers with running horses embossed on them, vinyl covered rear interior panels, wood grain instrument bezel and glove box and deluxe wood grain steering wheel.
Although the upholstery is not brand spanking new, it is still in very nice condition . The carpet always had floor mats so there is no wear on it or heel marks on the rubber insert on the drivers side, however, the steering wheel and knobs and instrument bezel etc were still original and no longer looking nice enough for out liking, so we replaced the following just last week with Concours factory style parts.
Horn cap
Wood grain steering wheel
Window handles
Turn signal stem
Dash knobs, lighter and ignition switch bezel
Air conditioning vent balls . The a/c face and FORD emblem were also cleaned and repainted so they look xlnt.
Instrument bezel - In addition to a new bezel, I also repainted the instrument needles with the correct day glo paint because these are always faded after all these years.
BODY
The body is pretty straight for a car of this age . It had a dent in the right rear quarter that was repaired but it wasn't huge, and if you look on the inside of the quarter panel from inside the trunk, it is difficult to see that it was repaired . Most people wouldn't even notice unless I told them but I just wanted to mention it . There are NO door dings . The inner front fender aprons are straight so there has never been any front end damage . If you look under the car you can see that the rockers and floors are laser straight and there is no heavy undercoating on the floors that could hide any rust . The body is NOT wavy like many of these are that have had a lot of body work.
PAINT
It was repainted only once which was done several years ago and I have the receipt for it . There are a few chips and scratches including one on the side of the front fender, but it still looks quite decent as can be seen in the photos . The paint is not lifting or peeling anywhere and it is not heavily faded and still has a good shine . I also have some paint left which can be used to fix these few areas but they didn't bother us so we left them.
VINYL TOP
This was also previously replaced when the car was painted and is clean and still soft with no cracking or damage anywhere.
VEHICLE LOCATION
We are located in the beautiful city of Murietta which is near Lake Elsinore . The zip code is 92595 if you want to find it on Google Maps etc.
VEHICLE INSPECTION
I encourage you to see the car in person and drive it so you can be certain that you like it . I also suggest that you bring any Mustang or other automotive expert you have along with you if you don't know much about cars . I also have a floor jack so you can jack it up and crawl underneath if you want . I am available to show it pretty much anytime.
Come out early and bring the kids, bring the dog and the cat . We live in a beautiful area with many small orange groves and there is a forest and hiking trails right at the end of our street . You could also head over to Lake Elsinore afterwards which is only 6 miles away and rent a boat (no special license required) . We are also only 5 miles from a large outdoor dirt track where they often hold events on weekends so you could check that out if you like racing.
