Complete Restoration of family owned since new 1986 Mustang GT. Before I owned it, it was purchased new and driven by my second cousin. SHE was a school teacher. This is the car that got me to create and found

I spent 7 years meticulously restoring this Mustang. Less than 100 miles driven since finishing. Time for me to move on to other projects in the stable.










...tons more pictures linked at bottom of post.




118k Total Miles on Factory Engine
Rather than cracking open a well running original Ford factory engine I left it alone. Runs great!

Majority of sensors replaced
New water pump
New Magnaflow X Pipe with Cats
New O2 Sensors
New Borla Mufflers with Flowmaster Stainless Full Factory style tips
No interior drone issues with setup.

Nothing was needed. Clutch is good. Trans and syncs are good.

New booster, master cylinder and rebuilt proportioning valve
New front rotors, pads, bearings, brake lines

Complete top to bottom factory refresh paint job with top quality paint.

C Pillar lead filler in joint removed and filled with safe metal filler
All trim painted or replaced and painted in body factory gray
All original glass accept new windshield
Cowl cover, wiper arms
Factory style UV grade hood graphic
Exterior badges and decals
LED bulbs on all signal/parking lights

Where to begin? If it could be replaced it was.
Converted from Red to Gray interior. Modern OEM grade paint used, does not scratch off
Dash Pad
TMI Interior seat kit and new front foam.
Seat frames detailed and painted.

Kept all original factory insulation

Left to do for new owner if desired:
A/C conversion to R134A with an LMR kit. I built it as a fair weather vehicle and did not consider replacing A/C in the project since the windows would be down. :)

This car never had any modifications done since new. A true survivor. I doubt you will find a more clean and original style restoration.

I picked up a copy of a local car classifieds recently.... An average Fox in good order has an average asking price of $15k these days. :oops:

The better examples were going for upwards of $25 :eek:

You need to do another one and like... now. :D
