Awarded to me new as a gift by my parents for making Deans List, Varsity Tennis at age 16 in 1965: My dad was convinced by the dealer in Long Beach to have all the High Performance options for safety while driving (especially passing other cars in the mountains). After Stanford earned 6-figure job at JPMorgan (Retired 2006). I married, bought a home, and bought 6 other Muscle cars as a hobby from 1976 to 1984 and retired this one from everyday use that same year. The prices of these cars was under $1500 in 1976. This car is completly stock down to the colors (but original motor, crank broke in 1971). Serviced by Ford every Spring from 1966 onward--last serviced 2017: compression checked, tuned, new brakes, clutch (and the clutch linkage was all replaced with OEM), lube oil filter. 2015 overhaul ($19,500) by R & D Classic Mustang. This car is perfect, tight, powerful, comfortable, reliable--NO RUST and priced for sale by Hagerty at 59,000 minus 20,000 for loss of engine. Factory GT: includes Front Disc Brakes, close ratio steering (HCC-AX), Tack and clock, Altimeter, Compass, Special handling Package plus High Performance Convertible Heavy Duty Suspension--all factory. a very fun ride, a turn key car with all new electrical system, cooling system, Tires, handling brakes, motor all serviced/replaced in the last 4-years. Paint is a 1984 Special 8 coat individually sanded Lacquer to match Ford's Raven Black... minor nicks on both doors but professionally repaired. This is priced $5,000 below its true market value based on Hemmings and Hagerty Research ($59,800 with original engine)--also comes complete with receipts, original Invoice, Nomenclature, and I even have one original ignition key. Must sell as my Son, while wanting mine, bought him one like it when he turned 16 in 1996. Will sell through a certified escrow and only to buyers in United States or Canada. The made over million of Mustangs the first two years but only 15,000 of this model, and only 181 documented convertibles are accounted for a of 2018. Its clean, its arrow staight, its original... The new engine, a 5.0 installed new in 2015 runs ever so beautifully and although it has 120 more horsepower and 60 more ft pounds torque it gets 25% better mileage than the 271 horsepower original HP289.
