I purchased in October of 2011 andproceeded to fully sort as follows:
While paint was exceptional, a few items needed addressed- Exhaust manifolds were leaking so had Mustang Mania in Austin pull themotor, trans, rear end, exhaust and perform several "while they were there" items:
- Remove engine and transmission, disassemble and inspect engine-short block in great shape, heads needed hardened seats, new guides, pushrods, valve job, surface and deck.

Replace spark plug wires, speedometer cable, starter, fuel pump, Group 27Autolite battery, starter, hoses, and points with Pertronix ignition. Respray engine compartment.
