When your goal is to own a world-class muscle car, there can't be any asterisks on the spec sheet. That's why the restorer of this striking Ford started his build with a documented Mustang GT. A performer from day one, this coveted pony is the beneficiary of a high dollar restoration that transformed it from a solid survivor into a fully detailed award winner. Today, the car sits as an attention-grabbing pavement pounder that's ready to hit the road and dominate the show field!
Wearing a correct coat of Dark Moss Green, this coupe's current condition is the product of a professional, rotisserie restoration that was completed in late 2007. The car's straight, mostly-original sheetmetal was stripped, sanded and bathed in high quality DuPont two-stage. And that smooth finish was, after being buffed to a mirror-like shine, trimmed in shiny new stainless.
Motivation is provided by an original 390 that was professionally rebuilt by CPR Performance Parts of West Columbia, South Carolina. That raucous mill is covered in traditional blue skin and centered between crisp, Gloss Black fenders. And everything, from the car's chrome valve covers to its Ford Blue oil pan, looks good and functions great.
Behind that pan, an original Toploader 4-speed twists power through a tough, 9-inch rear end to big 3.50 gears. That first class drivetrain hangs in a fully restored suspension, which benefits from factory power steering and power front disc and rear drum brakes. And at the corners of the car, chrome Mustang wheels spin correct whitewall tires around bright blue center caps.
Open this coupe's doors and you'll find nostalgic Detroit styling that's wrapped in sweet Ivy Gold 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 chrome-trimmed steering wheel spins a thin gold rim around a classy pony insignia.
It's hard to imagine the automotive world without Ford's Mustang. For over 50 years, America's original pony car has been admired by racers and purists alike. With its strong drivetrain, capable chassis and nearly universal appeal, this razor-sharp coupe is an excellent mix of old school fun and show-stopping looks. We'd like to 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!
