Connie, you mentioned your Special had been painted by the Mustang Ranch. It must have been several years ago since they no longer do painting, but he still does restorations. He is located near Eatonville if you're thinking on keeping it. He did a restoration on mine in the mid 80s and I've had him do repairs and minor upgrades since. If you're interested give him a call @ (253) 847-2623.

So it does have the GT equipment package. I also purchased a copy of this to keep with the car. Thanks for all the help on this everyone.

just an update on my mom's car. I did end up selling it.
I was offered $7,000 the guy talked me down to 6K based on all the work that was needed, which I knew to be true and from help from all of you. I felt it was a fair price knowing how much would have go into it.
Looks like he is now trying to sell it on EBAY, for about 10K. Let me just say he hasn't even had it for 3 full weeks yet and there is no way it is any better shape then when it left my driveway. A little disappointed that he talked me out of putting it on EBay because he was going to "work on it to keep in the family with his grandkids" and then turned around and put it up himself. But oh well once it is gone it is gone.

I did want to thank everyone for their help and honesty in the forum. The information I got was super helpful. I found that every "mustang" or "car person" that came to look at (there were plenty) loved it talked about how great it was then...........talked about how much work was needed and told me i was probably only worth about $3,000 BUT MAKE SURE TO CALL THEM FIRST BEFORE I SELL. So I really felt like people were out to screw me no matter how I went about it. This forum was honest and helpful.

We did have a supposed original defogger cover in the trunk, a new carpet, the roll up door for the consul and the original radio all in the trunk so hopefully those don't get sold separately.

Just wanted to give everyone an update as to what was going on with the car, and hopefully whoever gets it enjoys it has fun with it. If anyone every has questions feel free to ask and I will help as much as I can.

Thanks again.

I am so sorry that a "flipper" bought your car. I may be out of line, but I hate these kind of people. It is ok to buy a car and then fix it up to sell, but to do nothing more than buy and flip disgusts me. I hope no one takes offense to my thoughts on this, but that is how I feel. I NEVER buy car stuff to make money. In fact I will market the stuff for the owner and get them a fair price and have done that many times. Enough about all that....

Sure wish you would have let me make it drivable for you again. We could have done that pretty darn reasonably for you. And then you could have commanded a much higher price. But again, water under the bridge....

That was a nice car and I hope whoever gets it fixes her up and loves the history behind her. That was a steal for $6k in my mind. Wish he would have been more honest with you.
