Earlier this year AutoScout24 named Ford's legendary Mustang the most wanted classic in Europe. Of course, that wasn't a big surprise to folks on this side of the pond, given the car's cult-like following. This coveted Mustang wraps a tweaked Ford 289 and beefy C4 3-speed in a pristine, frame-off restoration. And, in typical blue oval fashion, it's fully sorted and ready to cruise with some of the coolest hardware on the street!
Wearing a glossy coat of correct Red paint, this Ford's current, show worthy condition is the product of a professional, rotisserie restoration that was completed in the fall of 2008. The car's clean, original sheetmetal was stripped, supplemented with fresh fenders, and bathed in a modern two-stage pigment. And naturally, that smooth finish was sanded, polished and buffed to a spectacular, mirror-like shine.
Motivation is provided by a rebuilt small block that, thanks to aluminum heads and a hotter cam, makes killer horsepower. That raucous mill was covered in traditional Ford Blue skin and centered between crisp, Satin Black fenders. And everything from the car's chrome air cleaner to its dent-free oil pan presents a detailed, show worthy appearance.
Behind that oil pan, a heavy duty automatic twists power through a tough, 8-inch rear end to an open differential and friendly 2.80 gears. That world class drivetrain hangs in a fully restored suspension, which benefits from factory power steering and heavy duty brakes. And at the corners of the car, stylish chrome wheels spin 195/75R14 Coker Classic redlines around red Mustang center caps.
Open this drop-top's doors and you'll find nostalgic Detroit styling that's wrapped in traditional Tan vinyl. Restored bench and bucket seats sport freshly pleated covers that, judging by their appearance, enjoyed very little road time. The vintage aura continues onto the dashboard, which offers a pleasant layout of analog gauges. And in front of the driver, a speed drilled steering wheel spins a beefy wood rim around a classy pony insignia.
Not surprisingly, this show worthy Ford happened to catch the eye of a diehard Mustang enthusiast as it rolled into the RKM Performance Center. And, before our marketing team could even raise their studio door, a bill of sale had been drawn up. We'd like to once again thank the car's happy new owner for choosing RK Motors Charlotte for all his octane-fueled needs. Here's to many trophies, many years and many more miles behind the wheel of classic American muscle!

What Customers Are Saying
I have the unique experience of buying and also selling a car from RK Motors.
It is very difficult and risky to evaluate a car on-line. I have heard many stories about people buying on-line and the cars did not turn out as advertised. This is where RK Motors works very hard to represent their cars as accurately as possible. They also do a great job of marketing their cars.
Their pictures give you the ability to look at details on any part of the cars you feel necessary. They are also willing to answer any questions you have as accurately as possible. They removed the all the doubt for me to purchase one of their cars.
I visited their showroom which is filled with high-level cars. Their sales staff were very professional and answered as many questions as they could for me.
When I decided to sell my car, I called RK and ask them how we could do this. They were very helpful and lead me step by step through this process. The thing that impressed me most was even though I purchased the car from them, they would not take my word on the quality of the car. Only after they did their evaluation were we able to finalize our deal. They took all new pictures and did a great job of marketing my car. They were able to sell my car quickly and kept me well informed through the entire process. We answered any questions the new owner had hopefully he will enjoy his car as much as I did.
I would highly recommend RK Motors to anyone buying or selling their cars.
