We have created a little variation of that old saying: Never judge a car by its paintwork!
Why did we say that?
We got a phone call from a customer in our office who thought we would be interested in a barn find 1975 Mustang. Originally this car came from New York and was used for a while then put into storage for what ever reason for the last 20 years. To be honest they are not the prettiest of Mustangs and they tend to be quite rusty. To get a good one is also quite rare these days too. First of all we declined and said that we were not interested going by past experiences from what we had seen of them. We were talked into at least seeing it first before we made a decision, with that in mind we thought we could break it for parts which can still make some good money. The car turned up at our yard and our first thoughts we were almost right. It was a little worse for wear granted, but it didn’t look too bad at all. We had a closer inspection and we bought it as a car to keep. The car needs a fair bit doing on the outside front area, but this car has got a serious potential to be a nice car. When you look at the pictures you can see why! At last we found a nice pretty solid 1975 Mustang that is not falling to bits, like we now say, never judge a car by its paintwork!
This model is the 1975 Coupe, 4 cylinder 2.3litre Automatic, with only 54,000 genuine miles on the clock.
How she arrived to us, unwashed and very much unwanted
We gave her a good clean, but as there were no keys we needed to use a little gentle persuasion to open the trunk!
The best part of this car is the inside which is almost brand new and unmarked apart from the stitching which had come undone on the driver seat
The engine needs a little work but it can be made good and the engine bay along with the car is pretty rust free
