1965 FORD MUSTANG FASTBACK - AUTO - 4329 MILES SHOWING
A beautiful presentation in Metallic Grey with complimentary red interior trim.

Photos of the above work are also held.
All of the above work was completed approximately 10 years ago, so those parts were new then and the car has completed only moderate mileage since. We don't hold current performance details for this car, but from the work that has been done, it would suggest it is capable of out performing an original 289ci Mustang.
A great example which is a credit to it's present owner.
Eligible for Historic registration in most jurisdictions, this equates to minimal on road costs.
