My friend had me list his project "J" code on ebay. check out the auction, it's item number 190001988143 or try clicking on the link below to get directed to the ebay listing. Yes there is a reserve, but my friend just gave the okay to bring it down. I might bring it down as soon as I get the Marti Report for it. The report was ordered on Friday.

The most important thing is that The Marti report verifies that is a true GT/CS OR HCS. Post as soon as you receive report and what options does the car have. THANKS

Kevin Marti has a rush service for reports. You pay $10.00 extra dollars and they will fax it to you same day.then they send original by mail.Since the car is on auction you might as well benefit from that service.

Yeah I talked to Tim eariler today, he sounds like a good guy. He knows his stuff. Im still working on trying to talk to my friend who owns the CS, and he wasn't home all day today. As soon as I find something out I will give Tim a call.

What happened to the "C" code car you were going to purchase Luis? Did the deal fall through?

Florida Restoration Shop

I'm in Florida and I may need to send my CS to a good restoration shop some day. Let me know the name and location of the shop so I can file it away for the future.

And let us know how their work turns out - pictures, please!

Thumbs up

The Restoration shop in Florida is: Classic Creations of Central Florida,they are in Lakeland. Its a Mustang specialized shop with nearly 30 years of experience in dealing with Mustangs. Its owned by a couple named Merv and Pat Rego. Great Mustang people to deal with.They are a small shop but do great work and at very reasonable rates. Have contacted about 6 references and all of them excellent.they specilaize in Rust repair but do everything,interior suspension and they have a guy that paints all their cars and work is superb. Their website is:www.classiccreationsfl.com
hope this helps. My newly acquired California Special will leave this month for their shop. Glad to be of help with this!!!
