And what country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.
Not a big mustang fan, it is victim of its own success, but that is gorgeousReplyDelete
Very, VERY nice.ReplyDelete
The Left keeps telling us we can't go back. But in a thousand different ways I sure wish we could. Crank and wind wing windows would be a great start.
The only thing I’d want instead is an AC Cobra.ReplyDelete
Manual transmission. Millenial-Proof.ReplyDelete
Old time theft device.Delete
Anti theft device. Missed the key wordDelete
Paint it metallic blue and it's my 1964 & 1/2 Mustang Hard top. Put the order in April 17, 1964 with Mullane Ford Bergenfield, NJ and took delivery June 9th. Built in Dearborn, Mich with a serial # under 10,000. 289 ci, 4 barrel, 4 speed, Cost me $2,400. Got married April 2, 1966. Wife totaled it in 1968. Divorced 1970. WTF took me so long?ReplyDelete
Future wife totalled my 69 Porsche 912 in 76, bought used in 74. Still married her. Divorced in 88, despite the fact that I saved their family business (her father was a BAD drunk). Biz went under 5 yrs later. I was blamed.Delete
Agreed on WTF took me so long.
The '59 Chevy dash was also very nice.ReplyDelete
I was scraping together the money to buy a '67 Mustang with a built-up engine (I forget just what) when the First Shirt called me down to the orderly room to tell me my name had been drawn and I'd won first place in the Viet Nam Tour sweepstakes, so the car immediately became somewhat less of a priority.
Yeah, crank windows, wing windows, mash button radio (AM only) and under the dash a/c. What else do you need?ReplyDelete
AM radio with one speaker in the dash. That or a transistor radio is how I listened to music in the early 60's. I think by 68 I had one of those cheap Soundesign stereos.Delete
That's the old Falcon dash. Soon after they went dual round instrumentation.ReplyDelete
Like in my '67 Fastback!Delete
Most of the car is "the old Falcon".Delete
The early mustang is a falcon. If restoring a 64 to 66 falcon, mustang mechanical parts are the same as falcon mechanical.Delete
I damaged the tank in my '65 Fastback carrying around the Muncie trans for my big block '57 Chevy. The trunk bed is the top of the fuel tank, and it punched a hole into it. Couldn't find a Mustang tank, so I used a Falcon tank. Only difference seemed to be the angle of the fill pipe inside the trunk. Instead of turning down directly from the gas cap mount, it turned to the passenger side, maybe a 45 degree angle. Worked fine.Delete
Hmmm. All I see is that steering column, pointed straight at my heart in any kind of Front End crash. I agree with the Nostalgia, but I'll take Modern Car Safety any day.ReplyDelete
The exploding gas tank when rear ended is a nice touch too.Delete
I can smell that picture.ReplyDelete
