Mustang Coupé 1965 V8 C289 C code automatic box

Coming from California, this Mustang has a very healthy chassis, it was repainted in black a little less than ten years ago.

She arrived on May 7 and since then is undergoing maintenance at the workshop. We disassembled the interior, treated the back floors, walls firewall antirust, then set up body seals that are not the strength of our American colleagues … Afterwards we applied a zinc-based treatment and then a black topcoat.

The basics of the Mustang were cleaned, degreased, and joined (3 days of work). We then applied a layer of anti-gravel to effectively protect the soil to allow it to spend the next few years without major problems of rust.

The car is healthy, solid on its chassis, we have some minor points to deal with bodywork and paint. This will be the case week 21 or the Mustang will leave for work at Pornic bodywork, we can use this time to finalize the administrative steps.

The harness will be checked, cleaned and taken on some connectors that were made quickly again. The Americans favor the appearance rather than the rest, we will make sure that everything is in the right place before putting the vehicle at disposal.

The front seat will go to AD Sellerie in Mésanger for a resumption of the seat, the other elements of upholstery, the carpets will be cleaned.

The maintenances have just been realized, whether on the engine, the box and the deck. Cooling fluids are good, belts too.

Once the Mustang is made reliable, we will pass the technical control to allow it a public availability form of rental with or without a private driver. Back in the seventies warranty!
