TONS of Receipt Documentation
This one is truly a little old lady Mustang. This one came from us from the estate of a 91 year old lady whom it is reported to have been bought new. This one was driven too and has the receipt documentation to show an incredible amount of work done including engine rebuild, steering rebuilds, suspension rebuilds, exhaust, interior work, electrical system...you name it.
'Love at first glance'...this is a great looking Mustang. The Sunlight Yellow (a 1964 1/2 only color) is really set off by the white vinyl top. This one is classy looking. The paint is older with some scratches & dings...remember the owner only recently stopped driving. However, this one still presents well. Obviously being a regularly driven car for the last 57 years this one has seen some action. There have been some bumps & bruises...they are documented in the receipts. One of those did involve a new hood and core support.
Inside the interior is in pretty nice shape. The seat upholstery is in good condition, door panels & headliner look nice too. The carpet was one of the more recent replacements and looks new. The Rally Pack still works properly...even the clock! The air conditioning is the factory Ford style and has the a/c trimmed console, the underhood portion was removed and didn't come with the car.
Under the hood the engine compartment is still pretty stock with the biggest notable exception of the alternator upgrade. The factory 64.5 timing cover is still in place. The engine was rebuilt at 114k miles and currently the odometer is showing 92,989 so figure there are about 80k miles on that rebuild. The engine fires up easily and runs excellent. The ignition system has been upgraded with a Pertronix system. The carburetor is an Edelbrock unit. The power is actually surprisingly good. The transmission shifts nicely.
The steering and suspension are quite nice on this one. Both have receipt documentation showing rebuilds with relatively low mileage. This one goes down the road nice & tight.
Receipt documentation starts way back in the 1900's back when Ronald Reagan was in office... There are literally tens of thousands of dollars of receipts on this one.
No big wheels...just the factory 14" steels with what appear to be the original 'Spinner' hubcaps.
