Now it's blue with a black interior. Original options: T-Top, power brakes, power steering, original 255 cid, auto transmission, and power windows.

(5 photos of a 1981 Bright Red Mustang Coupe) Check out this Bright Red 1981 Mustang notchback. It's owned by Because You Can Motorsports. The owner tells us, "Long story short... She was stored in 1994 by the original owner. We found her in March of 2012. In July 2012 we began work. This is the original paint sprayed in September 1980. We finished her in September 2012. Animals made quick work of the interior even though she was in a garage. We were able to build this car with extra parts we had laying around the shop and a lot of work. Originally being a 4 cylinder we used a 1991 drop top as a donor for all the steering and suspension (except the springs). She was also converted to 5 lug. The engine is a 302 bored .030 over with a Bcam with built e7s, and every bolt on part we could throw at it. Shes for sale. We're asking 5000 obo. If you have any questions feel free to email us."
