For Sale: 1978 Ford Mustang in Romney, West Virginia

Vehicle Description

This Mustang II is as close to perfect as a 42 year old car can be.  It has the V-6, power steering and brakes, automatic transmission, AM-FM radio, and some décor option that included the white band around the bottom with a blackout grill.  The 4,800 miles is correct and the story is great;  It was bought in PA about a half hour North of Uniontown by (guess) a little old lady who didn't drive it.  At her death, it was used to help pay for her funeral.  The funeral director was so big he couldn't get in it, so it sat in his garage.  He became bigger and bigger, and soon couldn't go up and down the steps, so he had an elevator installed and used the Mustang to pay the elevator company.  The man who owned the elevator company sold it to a collector (all of this occurred in the same, small town) who kept it (as I recall) 4 or 5 years and sold it to me May, 2019.  I drove it to; The Summit Hotel in Uniontown to have dinner and celebrate this incredible little car, on to Mt. Lake Park, MD to spend the night, then home to Romney, WV.  All together, probably about 150 miles and it ran perfectly.  Since then, whitewall tires, a new temp. sending unit, serviced, and it was in the Autumn Glory Parade in Oakland, MD last October.  At some point while sitting in one of those garages, a mouse moved in (long gone) and put (3) dime size holes in the headliner.  I didn't notice until I got it home.  Other than that, it's like it was when delivered in 1978.  I have no interest in negotiating the price.  It's too unique and it is a car loved by most at all stops.  I hope it goes to a good home!   There is a photo of a key hole in the driver's side front fender.  It's a fake.  Evidently, back in the day you could buy one of these, plastic with double faced tape, and put it on your fender to fake out would be thieves into believing you had a car alarm.  Kind of 70's and I left it on.  The Mustang is in Romney, WV, about 2 hours West of Washington, DC out old Rt. 50.
