So close....HCS close to home

Just saw a Presidential blue HCS advertised close to home. Its listed on a site called under Alberta. Type in 1968 Mustang and Bam!
Its way out of my $$ range but I called anyway. it was restored in Phoenix and shipped up north.
Its gorgeous BUT it was originally Brittany blue with 2 tone interior and was redone in Pres blue with parchment interior. Excellent combo and drop dead beautiful but not original colours.

I love it from afar!

A color change is a calculated risk.
I'm doing it, and have no regrets. i would rather have a color that makes me smile, than have a color combination that was my 19th choice.
We're only the caretakers of these cars for a term, the next restoration can make it numbers matching. "No harm, no foul, no ambalance", as Chick Hearn used to say.

Kijiji BC is where I found mine. I really lucked out, as Candy Apple Red is my colour of choice.
