|Odometer reading||12,056 miles|
|Result||Sold - £16,980|
When you talk about classic cars and Americana, there is only one brand and model that comes to mind, the Ford Mustang. No other car has been so successful and produced in so many configurations as this car. Used both on the road and track, this was and still is popular with both the youth of the USA as well as some of its more wealthy collectors.
This coupé model is designated a ‘Hi-Po’ V8 with a 289ci engine and Cruise-O-Matic, three-speed automatic transmission. It is also worth noting that it is a ‘dry-state’ car coming, as it did, from Arizona. After its original ownership, it passed to the vendor through Fountain Audi in Iver; not a stock car though, the owner’s private classic. Over the ensuing years, the vendor worked around the world, keeping his beloved Mustang with him. He has now returned to the UK and for the last few years, it has been cared for by Auto de-Lux, US car specialists in Surrey and the mechanics are now completely leak-proof. The paint and interior are good, although not perfect, it does benefit however from factory air-conditioning, power steering and a period-style modern radio with subtle Bluetooth connectivity. It starts perfectly and runs very smoothly indeed, a solid example with a full MoT test certificate and offered for sale without reserve.
