Just wanted to say hi. After 24 years I finally have replaced the 68 Fastback that I had to sell when I was younger. Best thing about my car this time is the 5400 original miles fully documented. She was just delivered the other day and has been wiped down and is setting pretty all nice and tucked in my garage, waiting for spring.

Sure looks nice. Are there any known issues you have to deal with, or is she good to go? Oh, and welcome to the forum.

Nope she appears good to go. I am replacing the wipers and at some point the tires. I believe they are original and 46 year old tires just worry me. I took her for a spin around the block and steering and brakes were great. Radio is a AM/8-track so I need to find some old 8-tracks in good condition to give it a try. Interior is mint.

What's the story behind the car? Were did you find it? Do you know anything about the previous owner? She's pretty.

90RunnerRed:

This is an short history of the car.

The original owner drove the car for about a year before scuffing the paint on the hood while it looks like he was buffing the car out. He put it on blocks with about 4,777 miles on it. He sold it it in 1977 to a friend who drove it for around a year. The car was then again sold in 1978 with 4,978 miles on it The new owner puts in his garage in storage. The car is then purchased by Steve Davis and is sold at the Barrett-Jackson auction in 1987 to the Patrick Ryan who owns the Prisma Collection and it is shown among the different Mustangs he owns. The car is driven every 90 days and kept in a temperature and humidity controlled storage area for the next 24 years. At this time only the battery is replaced. In 2011 the car is sold again at the Barrett-Jackson auction with 5200 miles on. From what I was told the new owners friends told him he shouldn't drive the car so it sat in his garage for 2 years where I just purchased it from a car dealer hired to sell the car. The miles when I purchased the car was 5,412. Personally I plan on driving the car to local shows for people to see. The car is pretty much factory / show room perfect. You can eat off the engine and there is no rust on the underside anywhere. I hope to be the last owner of the car and then pass it down to one of my kids.

Couple of things on the car.

302
automatic
Ford factory Kelsey Hayes wire wheels
air
am/8-track

Thanks for the history. Pretty crazy how some cars start out.
