Mustang Kelly

November 6, 2009

65MustangFront1Kelly and I would like to welcome the newest member of our family. Her father’s old, our new 1965 Mustang Convertible. Poppy red (orange) in color, with a black rag top and all black interior. 1965 was the first year of the convertible mustangs, and 1/2 a year away from the first mustangs ever made. Ron will be driving it over on Sunday, to it’s happy little new home in our backyard garage.

The car ‘Musty’ does need a bit of work, but it is running and drivable. I want to take a look at the brakes, and the underneath of the car right away, and would love to have it in tip top shape by the time spring rolls around. It’s not like we’ll be driving it much, but I would love to fully restore it to original condition. I can’t wait to have a bit of a closer look to see what it all is going to need.

Between the car and the basement, this is shaping up to be a very expensive winter…

This 1965 mustang could be ‘Musty’s’ twin, just in a bit better shape I think. Also has the original ‘spinner’ hub caps. I’ll like to get those back on it as well, but they’re rather pricey now… a trend with everything we’ll need for the car I fear.
