Exterior:
We think that this Mustang was repainted (at least partially) a long time ago. Maybe 30 years or more. It's the correct Springtime Yellow. It looks good in pictures and going down the road, but the paint is aged. Fortunately, the body is SO DANG STRAIGHT, that painting it won't be the huge chore or cost as it is with many old cars.
The tail light chrome & fender emblems are new, but everything else is original to the car.
If you've ever done a restoration, you know that there are hundreds of parts and work that I haven't listed, and untold odds & ends that are required to make it all come together. Each project on this car has been carefully done with the end goal of driveability and dependability.
Don't wast your or my time unless you're truly interested (& and able) and you've seen/driven this GREAT car.
No Help. No money transfers. No consignment. We are not in a hurry to sell our baby...
