Emberglo 1966 Mustang hardtop owned by Joe Parker from Charlotte, North Carolina. It has its original 289ci V8 engine and an automatic transmission. Joe tells us more, "My Father bought the Mustang for my Mother's Christmas present in 1965. It was Emberglo red with a black interior. Mom gave the car to me in 1971. I drove it for years until I left it in Texas to get restored when I moved back to North Carolina in 1990. The shop removed the engine and painted the engine compartment then let it sit for seven years and did not do any more work so I had it brought back to NC and left it with a restorer in Waxhaw NC till 2013. I kept in touch with him and he kept telling me he would do the work but it never got done. My Mom really didn't believe I would ever get it finished. When we picked it up to take it to the third restorer (Barry Stone); we found it in a lot behind the shop with the windows cracked open and many missing parts. We took it to get the body work done and it took three people 734 hours to complete the work. The engine and transmission were sent out to rebuilders. Then Barry went to work putting it all back together. He finished in August this year (2015). Sadly, Mom died in July and did not get to see it finished, but she did get to see over 100 pictures documenting the progress. It ended up costing over $52,000 for the restoration. The engine is no longer stock (aluminum heads, new cam, new intake and carburetor), I had the interior color changed and had a Cobra hood to replace the stock hood. I also had the suspension beefed up. I love the results and plan to drive it for many more years."
