HP numbers are good and all, but they're like asking someone how much they can bench. What difference does it make, if I can still kick your ass.

Wow joe

Sorry to see you decide to sell this car. Folks, This is one of the most beautiful 65' Mustangs I have ever seen. If I had the means, it would already be in my collection. I had the pleasure of riding in it once, we were all going to dinner and started out at the Queen Mary and drove about 200 feet and found a nice resturant. We walked back to our car. LOL. But it was one hell of a ride. Ha Ha. Truly one you should see in person. Mike

Thanks, Mike. Even though I'll miss this car, I hardly ever drive it anymore. I'd rather get my 68 up and running. Unfortunately, my cashflow this year does not lend itself to spending the money it's gonna take for me to finish the GT/CS.

Sorry. I didn't realize if I moved the pics on Photobucket that the links wouldn't work anymore. Here is a link to the whole album with a bunch of pics of the restoration process as well.

OH WOW! What a cool car! I will ask some people up my way. This is killing me. Always wanted a fast rag top!

This is exactly what I would build. Love the Maier subframe connectors. See that you flange the exhaust over the rear end. I do to.

Beautiful, driveable, and blinding fast!

Rob

Thanks Rob. It is a fun car. Those are Global West subframe connectors, though.

Looks like this car may be going "Down Under".
