This is a very rare Pony! Only 556 Factory Ram Air 429 Cobra Jet 4 Speed Mustangs were made. Break that down into color and interior options and this car is likely one of one.
The Light Pewter Metallic paint looks beautiful with a mirror finish. The black stripes and hood treatment truly compliment this color. The body is in excellent condition with what appears to be all original panels with no visible rust. The dash was completely removed for restoration and the cowl is in excellent condition as are the floors and trunk pan.
Inside the interior has been completely refinished with nice Vermillion upholstery as factory. The factory instrumentation including the Tachometer & Gauge Package are all functional. The dash bezels have all been replaced including the instrument bezel, center gauge bezel as well as the passenger side dash bezel. The dash is an area most cars are not restored. Take a look at the photos, this is a very nice car.
The Ultra-Rare Ram Air system is complete and functional. The Cobra Jet 429's were actually fueled by Quadra-Jet Carburetors, much to the surprise of many Ford buyers. As such, they are quite rare to find still on these cars. Under the hood things are quite original with the Quadra-Jet, Cast Iron CJ Intake, DOOE-R Cylinder Heads, Finned Aluminum Valve Covers and Cobra Jet Exhaust Manifolds still equipping the NUMBERS MATCHING & Highly Under-Rated 370 Horsepower Big Block.
The 4 Speed Super-Top-Loader transmission still has its original RUG Tag! This is a VERY RARE transmission, as they were specific to the Mustang. These are among the most durable 4 speeds ever produced. They were factory equipped with Hurst Competition Plus Linkage to insure crisp, consistent shifts.
