I will spare you the hype and BS. We all know what these cars are, how fun they are to drive, their Collectability and Investment value. If you didn't know this you probably wouldn't be looking at this Auction to begin with.

I will simply stick to telling you about this car !!!!

This car was purchased by a serious Midwest Collector about four years ago from a Collector Car Dealer in Saint Louis as a recently professionally restored, finished, driving car. He had wanted a cool Mustang or Camaro since he was in High School in the Sixties.

He told me that he drove it to one car show and a couple of cruise nights. All in all a total of about 300 miles. He was so afraid it would get damaged that he decided to simply put it in climate controlled storage and admire it himself. It sat there until it came to me this Summer.

Here are the details;

VIN 5R09C180xxx


R=San Jose California Ford Plant

09= Fastback

C= 289 2V Engine

180xxx= Production Number

Body 63A= Fastback Standard Interior

Color 3= Poppy Red

Trim 26= Black Vinyl

DSO 61= Delivered to Dallas Texas Ford Dealer

Axle 5= 3.50 to 1

Trans 5= 4-Speed Manual

But Wait, There's MORE !!!!

BODY- Straight and Solid as you would expect from a California/Texas car. Appears to be a solid complete car that has been restored rather than a Junk Yard Derelict that has been pieced together from bits and pieces of other junk cars. I don't believe car has ever had any serious collision or rust repair. Excellent panel gaps....doors, hood and trunk shut with a click. NEW RUBBER SEALS. Has fiberglass hood. There is a small floor patch welded in driver's front floor, a couple of bubbles on Passenger Door Bottom and a few minor dings. MOST PEOPLE LOOK AT THIS CAR AND CONSIDER IT TO BE MINT CONDITION but as with all cars if you look close enough you can find flaws. NICE BODY.

PAINT- Nice and Shiny. I'd guess it is Poly-urethane. Body Panels, Door Jambs, Hood and Trunk Lips look NICE. This car has been driven and does have a handful of minor scratches and chips that have been touched up. NICE PAINT.

INTERIOR- All NEW proper original style vinyl and carpet in excellent condition. Excellent dash. Full Console. Fold Down Rear Seat. EXCELLENT INTERIOR.

GLASS- All NEW or excellent original. Windows fit and work as they should. Shelby Style opera windows.


Edelbrock Aluminum Heads and Intake Manifold, Holley Street Avenger 4Bbl Carb, Competition Cam, Mallory Ignition, Tube Headers etc. Hi-Perf Clutch, Ford 4-Speed with Hurst Shifter, 3.70 Rear End, New Alternator, Brand New Radiator. Starts easily, no smoke, no strange noises. Everything NEW or RE-BUILT as deemed necessary. STRONG DRIVELINE.

SUSPENSION- Front Disc Brakes, Power Steering, suspension re-built or replaced as deemed necessary. DRIVES GREAT.

WHEELS and TIRES- NEW 17 inch Bullet Style Aluminum Wheels with Radial Tires.

This Car Is Attracts Attention Like Lady Godiva !!!!

Mustangs Are The Epitomy Of 1960's American Muscle Cars and This Car Is one Of The Nicest You Will Find.....


This hot little ‘Stang is ready to go to battle in your "Stop Light Wars" She is built to hold her own and leave the line in a cloud of tire smoke.

If that is not your style, she's ready to drive to a Car Show, Cruise Night, work, the grocery store, dinner or just out for ice cream.

This is a car you can be proud of in either case !!!!

Is this car perfect ?

No. There is no such thing as a perfect car !!!

Is this car nice ?

Yes, this car is very nice !!!

Is this a car I can drive with PRIDE ?

Yes !!!

As you can see I tried my best to cover it. If I missed something that is important to you I am sorry.

Please feel free to come look at it or call me if you have questions.
