Description

Bathed in an amateur respray of Vintage Burgundy, which has some runs, uneven application, inclusions, and poorly done body repair, this car shows with its passage of time worn on its sleeve. All beading and britework is on as original and while the front bumper remains nice, the rear has chrome loss and surface rusting. The rear trimmed hockey stick cove is present on this year's car, and the utilization of chrome trimmings around all the glass adds in some bling. The deep set single round headlights flank a central dark grille with the galloping steed on the center. A simple chrome mirror adorns the driver's door and on back, a smaller trunk lid deck and the iconic trio of tail lights on each corner. One can notice some darker application of paint around the tail mounted fuel filler cap, but the pony logoed cap remains blemish free. The 14" standard ribbed Mustang wheel covers have a touch of bling added with the faux knock of spinners and all are wrapped with thin white stripe tires.
Peering inside we are met with original door panels covered in black vinyl. Some tuck and roll inserts with a chrome trimming and shiny handles are here as well. Inside bomber styled black vinyl buckets are floating in a sea of black carpeting and a shifter is within the hump between these buckets. A bench is in back and looks to be in very nicely preserved condition. The original dash and steering wheel are in front showing round gauges at either side of the horizontal speedo and some rectangular warning lights and centered odometer below. All within a field of black and fairly clean inside here. Above the textured headliner in black vinyl is nice and tight but does have numerous large tears over the rear seat. Black carpet with a faded hump covers the floors and a look into the trunk reveals the plaid vinyl factory lining and spare tire cover.
Under the hood within a patina and slight surface rusted non restored engine bay is the original 289ci V8 C code engine. The entire mill is drenched in gold paint, including the air cleaner, valve covers and water pump. Combustion is being fed by a single 2-barrel carburetor on top and pushing power rearward is a C4 3-speed automatic transmission. Way back is a Ford 8-inch 2.80 rear axle.
