    She Is A Beauty — Its a spectacular head turner that's loads of fun, fast, and comfortable for a 50 year old car. I built it to drive from a very original well maintained rust free undamaged car and use it as a get around car and to take to the local show off galleries.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Beautiful 302 4v, auto, built as a classic restored driver with power disc brakes, power steering, air conditioning, sound deadening, with fog lights and rally pac

    Cons: She is a 50 year old car that loves attention.

    Great Car — I bought this car new and had one of the first production 289 Cu in 271 HP engines coupled with a 4 speed trans. In it's day this car was a rocket. It drove well by 1965 standards and was a real head turner, being red with a white top. The handling wasn't refined enough to take to the track although I did drag race the car. The wind noise around the convertible top was considerable.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: The car had great styling, Performance was awesome

    Cons: Wind noise, stiff  choppy ride

    Classic Lines Of The Gen1 Mustang — It's a muscle car - not meant for family or cargo! I've owned this car since 1980 - and I'll probably own it until the end. Complete restification in 2005. 306 full roller crate motor in 2007. Really need to upgrade the brakes to disks all around, but I'm currently building a 1965 Barracuda, so the Mustang is for driving right now.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Styling

    Cons: Nothing.

    1 Red Hot Of A Car. — The only dislike was that there is no air conditioning, but the convertible takes care of the air. Excellent heating. There are no repairs other than ordinary oil changes, tire rotation and inflation. A carburator kit (gaskets, etc) was just put on the car 1 week ago. Cranks up and lets you go on a pleasure ride of your life.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Orignal 289 engine, red convertable with automatic white top (great condition),  twin exhausts, has new tires, new battery, clean engine, bench seats (not bucket), has 1966 dash with cassett player.  Car cover keeps it from fading and is kept is garage when not out on the road.

    Cons: Needs a little brake work but drives and stops more than satisfactorily.  May have brake work improved before or upon sale.
