This Mustang began its life on October 2nd, 1970 and was sold new at Vincent Ford-Mercury in Cottonwood, Arizona on October 14th, 1970. The original owner only kept this car for the first two years, when its second owner took possession in 1973. He kept the vehicle in Phoenix through 1985 before bringing it to the St. Louis, MO area. In the late 1990s, the second owner installed new front seat upholstery and seat foams, convertible top, and the front chin spoiler. The third owner purchased the Mustang in September 2013, and subsequently sold it to us in 2014.
This Mustang took us on a scenic adventure across Historic Route 66 in 2015 on Hagerty's Great American Tour! Following its journey across the country, it was well-cared for in the southern New Hampshire area, being stored indoors and kept out of any inclement weather.

Major maintenance included a transmission rebuild at 65,000 miles, new gas tank and fuel pump in 2002, new exhaust in 2013, new carburetor, new tires, heavy duty radiator in 2014.All oil changes, coolant and transmission flushes, suspension components and alignments, and an overhauled carburetor by Pony Carbs, Inc.
