About 8 years ago my dad bought a 65 Mustang Convertable. Since we have owned it we have:
- Rebuilt oroginal 289
- Rebuilt C4 cruse-o-matic

Plans include a new paint job, the one on it is shi* and is worne to the bare sheet metal in places, plus the previous owner repainted it but did not do all the door jams and trunk ect. As of right now my dad wants to paint it a dark metalic purple, but that could change.
Well now for the Pics, only got a few, but will try to get some more up when it gets warm

Me infront of the car:

And the grill:

As you can guess, i drive the car at least once a week when it is warm out. Tell me What you think :D

was the car originally red?

If it was it would be a shame to change it......because it looks mostly stock, which is GREAT!

I hate to see them get all chopped up and customized to the point of no return.......

Perfect opportunity to go back to the original maroon!
Of course it all depends on what you want to dfo with the car, but it looks to me like its in very stock condition, which would be great to match with the stock color again. :)

SWEET stang!!!!

imo id take it back to maroon. i like to see the classics stay true. the only "resto-mod" id like to have is Eleanor. LOL but other than that id rather see a stock classic.


either way you go its your ride. it looks sweet. any mustang is a good one imo. (except the II's WTF was ford thinkin? )
