Beautiful, excellent running and handling, 1969 Mustang Fastback
First this is not a Boss 302. Those stripes came on the car when I purchased it. It is a 351 Cleveland 4V the Boss 302 used the Cleveland heads. This 4Vc is rare and known as the most powerful small block ever built in those days.
Over $60,000 invested not including labor! I have all receipts. Could easily be an 80k+ or more car with fresh paint and re-upholstered seats and some body alignment
Looks stock from the outside, except for the custom designed American Racing wheels and new BFG 235/45/zr17 tires. Start and run excellent. Even cold starts in a second and idle at low RPM. Very strong rebuilt and rare 351 Cleveland V4.

Car could still use new paint. I wanted to get all of the mechanical out of the way first. At that point it would be a front page hot rod magazine candidate. I have all of the receipts. Much, much more but I will add as I get a chance.
