Here is a car that will make people stop and pay attention. It comes with a new custoom paint job with eye catching colors.You have your older car look with new car clear coat shine.
This has a hint of sports car attitude in GT-specific pieces like the fog lights in the grille, GT gas cap, the triple stripe on the rocker panels, and dual trumpet exhaust pipes coming through the rear valence. So while it's hard to prove an original GT, this one doesn't miss the details. Overall fit and finish is very good, making it the kind of car you want to drive around and show off. The chrome is bright, the stainless has been polished, the custom wire spoke steel wheel are complete, and all the little trim pieces are in place - right down to the proper GT badges on the fenders.
This is a factory A-code car, which puts it in the heart of GT production. And under the hood is a correct 289 cubic-inch V8 topped with a four-barrel carburetor. Not only does the engine bay look like a great time warp with the custom air cleaner, custom painted valve covers, and all the correct decals, but also there are plenty of signs that this could be original to the car. Even the three-speed automatic transmission is date coded to fit in an originality timeline. One turn of the key, and the new custom dual exhaust let's people know it's the big dog V8 with its rumble. But more than just a high-performance pony, this loaded Mustang has some great anytime driving features like the power steering and power brakes with discs up front.
