1965 fastback $28,500

Follow the link for pictures. http://cleveland.craigslist.org/car/525948786.html

Heres the description of the car from the link above:
I am selling my pride and joy. A 1965 fastback mustang that I my self restored about 4 years ago and have hardly driven it since then. No more than a 1500 miles has been put on this car since its completion.

The car was rebuilt from the ground up, inside and out. Nothing was left untouched. The 94 302 motor and 5-speed trans has about 14K miles. Motor and trans are from a 94 GT. The motor has Trick Flow Track Heat heads with a 750DP Holley carb and an X303 cam. A 9 inch rear axle with a 3L70, trac loc gear mounted in a War case. The 3.70 gear whines and I will install a brand new gear set and let the new owner select the gear ratio of choice. The third member will be built with a solid crush sleeve which the 3.70 gear set has as well.

The suspension is from Mustang Plus, mid eye 4.5 rear leafs with 620 1 inch drop front coils. Shelby drop done to the upper control arms. KYB shocks and all new ball joints, tie rods and steering parts. I have the Shelby quick steer pieces but have not installed them, they are brand new.

The rear brakes are stock and the front disk brakes are the Granada/Versailles swap.

The instrument cluster was swapped to a 66 style to get the factory gauges over the idiot lights of the 65 style.

The car is grabber blue in color with white stripes. Pictures are available, just ask. The car was stripped inside and out and painted inside and out. Every piece that could be removed was removed and either restored or replaced with new.

I have a new windshield but have not installed it but will before the car is picked up, if sold. I need to install a new driver’s door handle which I have bought new. The old one had the button fall out of it so I bought a new door handle set. The car has no radio. Two speed wipers. Which I have yet to install the wiper arms, never drive in the rain. The car has factory ford back up lights, R model front end and a Mustang plus shifter for the 5-speed trans. The speed-o bounces at slower speeds but reads correctly. I need to pull the new cable and grease it with the correct grease. The left turn signal will not cancel on its own. I think I covered everything.

The car has had a few floor board patches, not complete sections! A couple of patches in the inner fenders like one on each side. The car has a factory quarter panel on the driver’s side and a skin on the pass. side of the car. Factory ford inner wheel tubs and after market outer wheel tubs. The trunk floor/drops where replaced as well. The fenders have no patches and the hood is an older fiberglass hood with out the metal reinforcements. One door has one patch and the other door had two patches installed. The car was stripped to bare metal, ospho, epoxy primed and painted with PPG BC/CC. The stripes are painted in single stage.

Serious buyers and serious offers only please!!! I will not give this car away. This car is one of a kind. Jump in and drive anywhere. The car is spotless inside and out!!!!!

I can provide pics of the restoration and details of any kind. Just ask. I have old photos of the sheet metal replacement that I can try to scan in.

Asking $28,500 bob
