Things to know:

  • A very nice restoration, but there are a few minor imperfections. (1) There is a small crack in the paint in the drivers door jamb (2) There is a small bubble beside the trunk lock (3) There is a small tick from the exhaust manifold gasket, which doesn't effect performance, (4) There is a 1" tear in the tonneau cover. I've included photos of these things.

Overall:This is a nicely restored 1965 Mustang Convertible. It runs very well, looks great going down the road, and is a very nice cruiser. It's ready to cruise today!
