Ivy Green 1965 Mustang GT convertible owned by Steve from Colchester, Vermont. This is our featured Attitude Of The Week for the week starting February 22, 2015. This GT has its original 289ci 4V V8 engine and an automatic transmission. Steve tells us more, "I bought the car in December 2013 from a muscle car dealer in Illinois. The car had been consigned from an owner in California. Many records came with the car which was produced originally in San Jose. The records show two long term owners in Northern California (San Jose area) but I haven't yet been able to trace owners from the 60s and 70s. The car was in need of some restoration and so far I have installed new convertible top, new carpet, new electrical harnesses in engine bay and under dash. The seats only required some cleanup, but I did replace the foam. The car came with Magnums which were wrong for 1965 so I replaced those with 14-inch styled steel wheels and new dual red line radial tires from Coker. The paint was great - only required some polishing and waxing. The undercarriage was restored before I bought the car and is very clean. The Mustang is a true GT and drives great! The top is even powered. It's a keeper." |

Ivy Green 1965 Mustang GT fastback owned by Johannes Mikkelsen from Denmark. This is our featured Attitude Of The Week for the week starting January 26, 2020. Johannes tells us more, "It is a real GT and has the optional deluxe Pony Interior. We bought this car in 2018, from a guy in Austin Texas and had it shipped to Denmark. He had owned the car for 6 years, but only had interest in the car as an investment.
The owner that had the car between 1991 and 2012 had the car restored.
The car has 90% original sheet metal and 90% original interior which is really something special. The car has lived most its life in Louisville Kentucky. From 1965 to 2012. Its a high optioned car which include: A code engine, C4 automatic transmission, Interior decor group, full length console, GT Equipment Group, Rally Pac, Factory Air conditioner, Back up lamps, power steering, heavy duty battery, 2 speed wipers, rear seat belts, and inside day/nite mirror."

Check out this Sauterne Gold 1966 Mustang GT fastback. The owner of CloudCasters owns it. It was our featured Attitude Of The Week for the week starting January 2nd, 2011. The owner comments, "It had been sitting for 4+ years on four flats with an unmolested deluxe interior and exterior. It had a 450 HP dual carbed 302 with a Tremec 6-speed and Total Control Products (TCP) for coil-overs. I got it home, changed all fluids, and added a set of Vari-Shock dual adjustable shocks. A new battery was needed, so a Gel cell red top was added. It was already relocated to the trunk. After a few cranks it fired right up. I ran it down to the muffler shop and purchased 2-1/4-inch pipe with Flow Masters. I drove vehicle for three years until a complete (down to frame) restoration was done. The tear down revealed a dead mice nest in headliner and others in the rear wheel wells. I thought there was an odd smell. The color is Sauterne and is as close as one can get, with modern paints, to the original with the Wimbledon White stripes. The wheels are original style and size. Two sets were purchased and used to make one set that is wider and offset. The semi-slick Toyo R888 are perfectly sized at 235/50/15 in the rear and 205/50/15 up front. All four corners have disk brakes, SSBC up front and the large stock ones that came on the 9-inch Lincoln Versi rear end. The differential is a built with 3.80 gears, connected using an aluminum drive shaft. The steering is done with Flaming River components and a sub-frame kit welded underneath. This car is solid, and has been done very very well."

This awesome Clearwater Aqua 1967 Mustang hardtop is owned by Corey Fong of San Jose, California. This was our Attitude Of The Week for September 21st, 2008. Corey writes: I just pulled the car out after ten years of storage. My mom was the original owner, who bought it when she was in her 20s. Lots of original parts still on it (glass, chrome, California smog parts, wheel covers, etc.). This was a daily driver for a number of years but remains in pretty good condition.

This 1967 Mustang Fastback is owned by Paul of Miramichi, New Brunswick, Canada. Paul says, "I bought the car in 1996 and stored it away for ten years. Took it out a few years ago and decided to strip the car down to the metal and paint it the original color and aligned the body up again. However, the car surprised me for the shape it was in; I had to do very little work to it. It's also a 4 speed car. I don't have much time to drive it because I run my own autobody shop. We all know what that's like. No time for our own. I'm also in the process of building another one; its also a 1967. I had that over 25 years now and no time to work on it as well. I also have a 1977 Cobra Mustang bought in 1996. It's a 4 speed as well." This is an S-code car with a 390ci, 4-barrel, V8 engine.

Lime Gold 1967 Mustang fastback owned by Tom Brodersen from Davenport, Iowa. This is our featured Attitude Of The Week for the week starting July 12, 2015. It has it's original 289ci V8 engine and an automatic transmission. Tom says, "I bought it in 1980 in Anaheim, California. It is mostly original and unrestored. It does have fresh paint and I did rebuild the engine, but other than that, it is basically a survivor."

Lime Gold 1967 Mustang fastback owned by Ty from Canada. It only has 32500 miles on the odometer. Ty tells us more, "This is a Canadian car which has stayed in Ontario its whole life. The car is in complete original condition and has been painted only once. The body and undercarriage of the car has been preserved extremely well, with no rust at all. It has a 260 six cylinder that runs very well. It is hard to decide what to do with such a car being in such perfect condition."

Seafoam Green 1968 Mustang hardtop owned by Lawrence Devereux from Rancho Cucamonga, California. This is our featured Attitude Of The Week for the week starting March 23, 2014. Lawrence adds, "My parents bought it new. I was actually at the dealership when they did the paperwork. I drove it in high school in the late 70's. Just this year (2014) it was used in the last scene of an Indie film shot in the desert, 'Daisy - Chapter 1.' "

Check this one out! It's a Whipped Cream 1968 Rainbow Of Colors Mustang hardtop. Check out the paint - this is the first one we have on our site that wears it's original shade of Whipped Cream paint. It actually has light green tone to it. It also has it's original 302ci V8 and an automatic transmission. The owner tells us, "Came across this car in 2006. The second owner was selling it, having grown tired of it - saying it never has won or ever will win any prizes. I was able to met the daughter of the original owner and get some very important information on the car. Her mother bought the car off the showroom floor and loved it at first sight. The original owner kept the car in a carpeted, heated, and air conditioned garage while in California. When she moved to the mid-west she drove the car herself instead of having it hauled. When unable to drive anymore, she sold it to a neighbor, who sold it to us. The spare tire is one of the original tires that came with the car. I am happy to say the second owner was so very wrong about it not winning any prizes. It has won several times and considering it is up against cars that have been totally restored, I think is great."

Here is a super rare Mustang. It's a Silver Jade 1969 Mustang E' fastback owned by Tim and Barb Wise from Springfield, Illinois. 96 of these were made for the Mobilgas Economy Run, but only 50 were ever sold. Tim tells us more, "My wife and I restored this car in our home garage. Six years in the making. Every nut and bolt came out and was restored or replaced. We did a concours build. Everything is totally correct as it left Ford. All work done in our home garage minus engine and trans rebuilds. Bodywork including paint all done at home."

Medium Lime Metallic 1970 Mustang convertible owned by D Cooper Colbert from Pennsylvania. This was our featured Attitude Of The Week for the week starting September 5, 2010. The owner tells us more, "It was just restored. I am the original owner. There is still some to go but I am real happy with the results so far! In 1978, I changed the green color to Grabber Orange, took off the road in 1988, and 07/2009 started the restoration putting the color back to original."

Bright Lime 1971 Mach 1 Mustang fastback owned by Dewey Castelein from Battle Creek, Michigan. This is our featured Attitude Of The Week for the week starting March 2, 2014. Dewey shares, "I'm the second owner of this car. I bought it back in 1979 in California. It has tilt steering, Rim Blow, fold down rear seat, front and rear spoiler, louvers, Mach 1 stripes, the Boss 351 Ram Air (functional) hood and tail light panel, and LED sequential tail lights. I got the last OEM Ram Air through Ford dealer. I ordered it in 1981 and the Parts Department checked the microfiche and saw that there were only five left in Ford's inventory. When the parts guy started calling for the system, three were already sold. I ordered one and my buddy ordered the other one. One week later, mine showed up but my buddy's never did."

Ivy Glow 1972 Mustang notchback owned by Zak from Seattle, Washington. It has the original 351ci-2V engine and an automatic transmission. Zak tells us, "I bought this car when I was 15 years old in May of 2012 when I didn't even have my drivers permit. We found it just up the street from where I live. It was sitting outside under a car cover for five years. The
owner was offering $1,500. It was not running at the time. The car only needed a new set of tires, new fluids, fuel pump, battery, windshield wipers and a rebuilt carburetor. Cosmetically the car just needed a wash, wax and vacuuming. Other then that, the interior and exterior are virtually untouched since purchased. I later painted the vinyl roof and put a seal around the sunroof. The sunroof and baby moon rims were already put on when I bought the car. The car has the original paint (never repainted), factory A/C, shop manuals, owners manual, wiring diagram, documentation, spare tire, original hub caps (not currently installed), and original AM radio (not currently installed). I am currently a member of Pacific Cascade Mustang Club since February of 2013. The car is great and I love to drive it when the weather is good!"

It's original color was a yellow gold. Paul tells us more, "I bought this car three years ago and completely rebuilt it. It was repainted by myself in a friend's garage. My late father was co-owner of the Ford Dealership in which the vehicle was originally sold. He would have ordered the car for stock inventory. I have also met the original owner of the car. He approached me at a car show and stated he had been looking for the car. He brought his wife back to see it as he had proposed to her in that car. The car has a 4-speed in it now but I have a T-5 ready to go in."

Electric Green 1999 Cobra coupe owned by Stuart Urie from Milford, New Hampshire. This is our featured Attitude Of The Week for the week starting December 24, 2012. Stuart tells us, "Kelly was bought by me in 2004. Back in spring 2006, after looking for about three years, I finally found a green '99 with charcoal for $13k and I went to work to think it over. When I got home it was gone. Later in August, after giving up looking, I looked on Autotrader one early morning and found another just posted. Same price $13k. I called/emailed... then wife said just get it.
I bought her sight unseen. And beat out two others from OR and AZ. One had called and offered to buy sight unseen 15 minutes after I had. I flew down
to AL to get it and had just paid for it when a local guy pulled in all excited and started opening the doors, etc. He had been spending some time convincing his wife to let him buy it. Anyway when I drove it back into NH and had time to look at the VIN. It turned out to be the same car I had found in the spring. Someone bought her, drove her for the summer, then traded her to a local Ford dealer, who then sold her to my AL dealer, who then posted her up on Autotrader again. Kelly was meant to be mine."

Tropic Green 2001 Mustang convertible owned by Evelyn Morehead from Shelby North, Carolina. It has the 3.8L V6 engine and an automatic transmission. Check out the three ponies on the door. Evelyn tells us more, "I bought this 'stang in 2002 to replace my '93 Mercury Capri convertible. It has the pony leather interior, 6 CD radio with premium sound, and, to top it off-tan horses running down each side! The children at the elementary school where I taught loved this car! It has been in several parades. It has been treated better than I treat my husband. I don't think it has ever squalled tires or skidded-I have been very gentle. It has mainly brought a lot of fun as we cruised with the wind in our hair and sang along with many great songs on our killer sound system. The only reason I am selling it is that-after knee replacement-it's kind of tough to get in and out of. I had planned to keep it till it became a classic-but someone else will have to complete that plan!"
(from page 13 of the 2005 Collection)
Legend Lime 2005 Saleen Mustang coupe owned by Steve Bishop from Redmond Washington. It has the 281ci supercharged V8 engine and a manual transmission. Steve shares, "Purchased the car in October 2016 in Kenosha WI and shipped to Washington. Signed by Steve Saleen in 2017 the same weekend as the Mustangs Northwest Ride N Drive where she got to see some track time. Apparently, only 7 Legend Lime Saleens were made. People either love or hate the color. She was decoration inside the Lynnwood Convention center for the Mustangs Northwest 2016 annual banquet and car of the month for their magazine August 2017." This photo was taken by Kirk Myhre of Myhre Creative.
