A 289, stick shift, A/C-equipped Mustang convertible for under 25 grand? Do you really need to know more? Crisp white paint, a Pony interior, classic looks, and great sound are just a bonus on a car like this. Few cars capture the public''s imagination like the original Mustang. Launched at the World''s Fair in 1964, this is the car that set the tone for sporty cars that''s still playing today. The Wimbledon White paint has aged well (the car was restored in the early 2000''s) and shines up plenty well enough for cruise night duty. The trim was all replaced or shined up, and the luggage rack compliments the car''s lines perfectly. Lights and lenses are clear, and the body gaps are quite likely better than factory, with dual exhaust pipes that poke through their chrome ringed holes in the rear valence panel. The black convertible top is brand new and looks great. Running horse and 289 badges on the fenders, the chrome letters front and rear, and the chromed C scoop accents finish off the body just right. First generation Mustang interiors are just about perfect, especially when fitted with the optional "pony" package. In all black with brushed and chromed accents, it''s a great contrast to the Wimbledon White exterior. A new dash pad shades full instrumentation in a new bezel, an AM/FM/cassette radio and a new glove box door. The A/C evaporator unit with four jet-inspired outlet nozzles hangs below and looks great, just the way they did it in the mid-60s. That classic three-spoke steering wheel with chrome accents makes you smile every time you slide in behind it. Newer seat covers are on the front buckets, flanking an original center console. New carpeting on the floor finishes off the soft trim with gusto. Three pedals plus the big chrome shifter equal a ton of fun on the open road. The trunk has a new mat, the spare and jack, and plenty of room for a cooler and chairs. Under the hood is a great running and sounding 289 that was rebuilt a mere 2500 miles ago. A remanufactured distributor and carburetor went down, and a cam with enough lope to get noticed went in. That big air conditioning compressor sits high front and center, sharing the limelight with the correct air cleaner over the 4-barrel mixer. A newer battery and new battery cables provide juice to their appropriate systems and experts will note that the "export" brace running from one shock tower to the other is a standard item on convertibles. Tune up parts and hoses were replaced along with the freshened engine: You''re ready to hit the road right out of the box. Newer steering parts work with fresh coil springs up front and leaf springs out back for a comfortable, controlled ride. Drum brakes may be a bad word today, but they stop a lightweight Mustang perfectly. The original 8-inch rear axle receives its twist from the Toploader four-speed manual transmission in the tunnel. Rust concerns appear to be null, as the metal underneath is nice and solid. Original 14-inch steel wheels with Mustang hub caps are wrapped in 195/75/14 white stripe tires, again looking period-correct. Stick shift V8 convertibles are tough to find, and they''re a LOT harder to find with air conditioning. Grab this white stallion and hit the road. Call today!
