Sold in under a week :)
This car belonged to a longtime friend of mine who passed a few years back. To be clear, I am helping his wife with the sale of the car at no profit, just wanting to help her. I will do my best to help with answering questions about the car the best I can, and we want to be upfront about whatever we can on it as well.
Frank was a Mustang man. I met him when I was 18 years old (which was well over 20 years ago now). He had restored Mustangs since the late 70s. I personally have owned a couple of the cars he had owned and in my college years I spent many nights, usually at least one night a week, at his place tinkering on these things with him and learning what I could as we went. Frank had owned a little bit of everything, including a beautiful KR500 Shelby among others. He knew more about Mustangs than most anyone I had ever met in my life, he'd even been the president of the Music City Mustang club for many years. He had been a fastback man, but in later years and grown to love something that he his wife could tool around to local shows in and not have to worry too much with pushing a clutch in. That was this car. This would be the last car Frank spent some time going through for himself and his family to enjoy with him. It's a basic C Code 66 289, automatic, Convertible. He always had a soft spot for Springtime Yellow cars, I know because we talked about it. I personally saw him in this car more times than I can count, at local shows, just riding around having a good time with his wife. Frank passed away on us a few years back. This was hard for many of us. As time has gone on his wife has continued to start up and move the Mustang around, knowing that it sitting would be bad on it. In the last year or so, she and I have talked about her need to let it go and get it into the hands of someone else that could enjoy it and it not let it sit around any longer. Frank did some work to the motor, but we think it's the original 289. Frank bought the car from the family who had originally purchased the car, where it had been passed down from the original owner, to his son, then sold to Frank sometime later. The car was solid as can be, and still is. It didn't need any major metal work or anything like that. Franks stripped it and repainted it. He had an affinity for Magnum 500 wheels as well. I helped him find a set, which you see on the car, which turned out to be the ones that were used on the Hertz Shelbys, which are slightly different and only Frank would have caught it. He of coursed love that and loved that he'd have them on his car. The paint on the car is not perfect, but it's good for a nice driver. Frank himself would tell you that he was done with show cars years ago anyway, he wanted things he could enjoy, and he built them the way he liked them and didn't care what any judge would think. So what you have is what you see here. The car runs good. It needs to be driven more, and I'm sure the new owner won't mind doing that. I have driven the car and it rides smooth. I did notice recently when moving it around that the brakes were sticking a bit, but that's all easy stuff. Someone just needs to get it and love like Frank did, and expect to work out any bugs that arise from not getting driven as much since his passing. If you have questions about it, let me know, I help where I can. See the pics for more detail and thank you for looking. - Chris
