In their 12 page extensive 700 point judging form the car received a documented 687 points out of a possible 700 points. During the period of time I have owned the car I have meticulously and lovingly maintained the car in show room condition. The paint on the car is exact match to the cars original factory Ford Calypso Coral with clear coat. The paint on the car is immaculate with no dings, chips, scratches, variations, swirls etc. The pictures don't do the paint job justice. The paint is in show room condition!! The car has all factory decals, inspection stickers, paint markings and I even was able to obtain the original factory copy of the window sticker from Lois Eminger who, in the early 1990’s was able to acquire thousands of Ford factory window sticker copies for many Mustangs produced in the late 1960’s and early 1970’s. A color copy of this window sticker invoice is proudly displayed on the drives side window of the car. I have showed the annually at local car shows and continued to maintain its meticulous condition.
