This is as close to a Concourse car you can get and still enjoy driving it on the street. This Mustang went through a very extensive complete nut and bolt “Body Off Rotisserie Restoration”, and there are many photos showing the process. The most important piece of documentation on this car is the original “Buck Tag” shown in the pictures which is the ONLY true way to tell an original GT mustang.
An aftermarket A/C system was added for driving comfort but the installation didn’t disturb any original sheet metal in the process. This system is preferable to the original “Knee Knocker” Ford style that wasn’t so aesthetically pleasing to the owner, and the aftermarket AC has better cooling efficiency, with the compressor causing less drag on the engine.
Practically every part that would have a wear issue was replaced with new ones (too many to list separately). The restoration was completed 9 years ago and still looks like it was just recently completed. This car has had meticulous care over the 31000 miles put on it over those 9 years. That’s why it still looks so beautiful.
This car has won many Awards, Trophy’s and Honors from organizations like the Mustang Club of America. The MCA judged this car in the “Occasional Driven” Class in 2016 at St Augustine, FL and scored it 209 out of 217. Deductions were for minor, easily remedied issues like dirty carpet, alternator and steering box – Paint missing on manifold and hood hinges. This Mustang GT drove effortlessly on the 2015 and 2016 Hot Rod Power Tours – what a great ride!
