Default My european mustang??

so crook brothers body shop in southern cali has been working on my car for about a year now. When i got it the instrument cluster was in KM and not mph. the owner of the shop has worked on over 200 mustangs and has never seen a car like mine. He suggested it might be from europe or some other foreign country. how much more of an increase in value does my car have now that it is a foreign car?

Still US production. Have you decoded the door tag for info? Could tell you where it was intended for.
Is ther any distinctive badging?? The Mustang name was already taken in Germany, they became T-5's IIRC.

Yes, T5's were sold in Germany. It could also be Canadian. It's not worth anymore than one in the same condition that was sold in the US.

Mustangs always have been sold in canada and they use kph so that might be why.

I have a 71 J with a tach And a KPH speedo. 0-200, I wish it was MPH. My guess is its form North of the border.

It's gotta be from Canada. We have always had mustangs here since their intial launch, and there is probably just as large of a fan base for mustangs in Canada as their is in the US. (Based on percentage of population.. ).

i asked the shop to a history report and maybe that will tell us where it came from. the shop owner also said the instrument cluster was a rare piece and could sell for a couple grand. true?
