Is the interior all original or did you have it redone? Great looking pony you have there.

Nice ! I saw 289 and my first thought was a manual would be sweet behind that then I red on. :)

Vehicles grew on my early, I guess just like a dish you can take almost any one and with enough time, passion and know how you can turn it into something you're proud of.
Or you pay someone else to do it and it's like going to a restaurant :D

I always loved those washer bags. I still have one from my 61 Tbird (somewhere) and one from my 63 Willys.

Very nice Sam!! I've been building Mustangs pretty much all my life, lol...and my first car was a 1967 Cougar XR-7 GT.

Last time I cut myself polishing a knife, the blood was Ford blue :D.

Yes the car is original or NOS(New Old Stock) parts it has took a lot of cleaning, stitching, an rubbing to get it to shine at this level my last add to Lil red was a set of Koni shocks, and I love them . when most people see it like Cris they have their story of Back when.... and it is always fun to hear the story's that follow . This is really what brings the Hot rod and Classic car guys together . yea I do love my Ford Mustang and bled Blue & Orange but that is Tennessee colors for football to so that works well for me .

Looks really nice! Its rare to see someone try to keep their stang looking like it did from Ford. Most people like my self have modified their cars to fit what they want.

If you are ever looking for OEM Parts let me know :)

When we rebuilt my stang to where it is at today we kept all of the OEM parts and I have them all still.
