TODAY'S RESULTS 8/14/2020...
(from the 1981_00006_01 Collection) Blue 1981 Mustang Cobra hatchback owned by Andre Lepine from Louiseville, Quebec, Canada. Andre tells us, "I bought the Cobra in 2009. The Cobra's original color was white with a red interior. When I bought it, it was blue with the red interior. I completed a full restoration of the Cobra with my Dad. Now it's blue with a black interior. Original options: T-Top, power brakes, power steering, original 255 cid, auto transmission, and power windows. From the Marti report, I learned this Cobra stayed for a full year on the dealer Mont-Royal Ford's parking lot before it was sold (Feb. 1981 to Feb. 1982)."

(from the 1981_00008_01 Collection) 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."

The owner says, "I bought this car in February of 1987 with 45,000 miles. It now has 101,000 but sits in the garage covered."

(from the 1981_00025_01 Collection) Ford Promotional photo of a two-tone Medium Pewter silver over black 1981 rag top Mustang Ghia coupe. The 1981 Tu-tone option could be black or the following top/bottom combination: dark cordovan/bittersweet, medium pewter/light pewter, red/white, and midnight blue/medium blue glow. Best of all this Ghia optioned Mustang has the Carriage Roof option which gives the look of a classic convertible with the top up, but of course this one never goes down. No Mustang convertible was offered in 1981. This Carriage Roof was offered in white grained vinyl; or black, blue or brown cloth.
