This car comes with an extra set of rear rims and tires. They were originally going to go on the front. but were too large for the front suspension. No Rust. This is a California Car that spent it's years in San Bernardino. It was parked for more than 10 years before I got it and restored it for my daughter. This is a real knockout and you will get lots of nods and thumbs up driving it around. It is quite fast.
The old parts in the picture were saved and go with the car if you wish. The spare tire is a fox body spare that is full size and will clear the much larger disc brakes that have been installed. The license plates are the originals that have been restored and powder coated. This car cam with factory air. The compressor. evaporator coil and the hoses have been replaced with modern replicas (R134a).
The reason for the sale is that my daughter is now going away to college. out of state.  so I purchased a new car for her.

A little bit of history for you:

I was offered a 1981 corvette in trade for a company truck I had up for sale. I asked my then 14 year daughter (4. 0 student) if she wanted it. She said yes. I traded and spent a year with my GM Certified mechanic rebuilding every aspect of that car. My daughter insisted upon Black for the paint. I tried to talk her out of it to no avail. I finished it and took her driving in it when she was 15. She learned to drive in that car and learned that a T-Top roof with a black paint job was no match for air conditioning in Southern California. Yes. she had one of the coolest cars in high school at Huntington Beach High. but the car was unbearable to drive for the first 15 minutes. which of course was longer than most of the driving she was doing.

She told me right after she started her driver training that what she really wanted was a 1966 Ford Mustang Coupe. So I started searching for one and she stated wanted the Orange and Black original license plates. I found the car featured here in San Bernardino and purchased it unrestored. not driven for more than 10 years. for $4800. 00. I was high bidder on Ebay.

It was a secret kept from her. I did not let her have any input in the restoration. The car looked good when I bought it. but oh my. looks deceive. We replaced so many things that I think the only parts that were not rebuilt or replaced in the engine bay were the windshield wiper pump and the alternator. Some items had to be replaced twice because they refused to align with other new parts and the modern mounting brackets. (Very cool milled aluminum mounting brackets)

On her 16th birthday I had her reveal her Mustang. basically a new car. by lowering it on a car lift in my warehouse and having her remove the car cover. She thought I was just pulling a joke on her and thought it was someone else's' car. It was an awesome moment.

The Corvette was sold and now it is time to move on. I would love to keep the car. but I do not have the room. I am moving out of my building in Garden Grove and downsizing my company. I live in an association and do not have the room to store the car at home. It must go. As far as my daughter goes. she is driving a new 2014 Ford Fusion Hybrid. I purchased it for her with all maintenance and breakdowns covered for the next 7 years as she is moving out of state for a college education in law with a minor in business.

This is truly a rare build and truly a great car. I spared no expense (you should listen to my book keeper complain) when restoring this car. The paint job went all the down to the metal throughout. It has been painted multiple times because of slight flaws. The owner of the body shop didn't even mind it because he parked each day outside his shop and got so many inquires about it. He used it for marketing and kept it for 4 and ½ months. This car is built well and is a daily driver and is in show car condition. Heads turn and people smile ear to ear when seeing this car.  

This is not a car to drive if you want anonymity.  

On Jan-23-14 at 07:38:55 PST. seller added the following information:

New White Face Gauges

New Steering Wheel

Air Conditioning Housing Has Been Re-Chromed

New Front Door Panels

Original Floor Boards

Original Fenders

I do not have the original wheels. I believe stock 15" rims will fit over the larger brake calipers.

In the pictures of the underside of the Mustang you can see all the new (5. 00 miles) stuff installed. New complete exhaust with full length headers. new fuel tank. new fuel lines. new brake lines. new bushings. new front trailing arms (springs as well but not in the pictures. new radiator. new oil sump. new disc brakes. I did not clean it up at all.
