Unique all original example with a wonderful history.... Purchased new by carrier Military man in San Diego August 12 1966. His care for this car was well beyond normal. I was told it was never washed with water, only carefully wiped down.
I first saw this car in 2004, shown to me by his widow after his death. At that time it was carefully and completely covered in wool blankets in the underground garage of their retirement apartment building. Because she never drove it sat unused with the exception of Monthly uncovering and running by a family friend. I was not able to buy the car at that time and instead it was sold to a local collector who continued its exceptional care.
I recently purchased the car from him.....
It is all Factory original paint with the exception of an older touch up of the right front fender. (There is no evidence of prior damage to this area) No parking lot dings or scratches.....The interior is factory and looks as new everywhere. No sun damage anywhere. The car has 75,000 miles but could pass for 35,000 miles..... it's that original and nice. There are many Mustangs available at any given time. However, to find one in this original preserved condition is truly an opportunity for someone who wants the best. Another interesting note is the added tags under the hood that read " Shelby Enterprises Engine Number 25987 8/17/66" and an added Shelby round trim to the grille pony. The meaning of this could never be verified as the owner was deceased. However from the date it was added only 5 days after he picked up the car. Looking at the complete service record history there is nothing from Shelby indicating any service or modifications. The engine looks and runs Factory stock......
