Thanks to the professional restoration, this fastback is bathed in the original Brittney Blue paint, which is absolutely silky smooth. All the body panels are straight, the trim and badges are all in top shape, there’s zero sign of pitting or curb rash on the wheels, and the black interior is of at least showroom quality if not better, just like the rest of the car. In fact, the radio and speaker have been rebuilt, showing just how painstaking the restoration process was.

 

The mechanicals are all original and correct. A Ford 390ci FE V8 is mated up to a Toploader 4-speed manual transmission. Both the air cleaner and carburetor are original, so you get an authentic experience. Power is sent to a Ford 9-inch rear. With a heavy-duty suspension upgrade, handling is excellent. The factory Extra Cooling Package makes this ride that much nicer, especially if you live in an especially hot climate. Power disk brakes provide consistent stopping power.

Plenty of upgrades originally included in the car make the interior a little nice. There’s the Deluxe Steering Wheel, plus the Sport Deck Rear Seat, the Interior Décor Group, tinted windows, Deluxe Seat Belts, and an AM radio.

With only two owners who know each other, this Ford Mustang has been exceptionally cared for throughout its lifetime. All work was completed in 2017 by Desert Classic Mustangs, which is located in Tempe, Arizona. While there are others like this around, finding one in this kind of condition is a rarity, to say the least. Classic Mustangs will only continue to appreciate in value, thanks to their broad appeal and legendary reputation worldwide.
