1999 Ford Mustang Svt Cobra

Title: Copperhead pearl! 20" Foose wheels.
Mileage: 43,400 miles
Location: La Crosse, WI

This is a very clean 1999 svt cobra. It has brand new oem 2004 cobra bumpers, rocker mouldings, side vents, hood, headlights, foglights that I ordered from ford. It also has the fender emblems off of the new gt500. Which are twice as big as the old style emblems. I put polished stainless steel cobra inserts on the back bumper. I did all the work myself including the paintwork. I paint cars for a living so I have the highest of standards when painting automobiles. The color is ppg's copperhead pearl. It is one of a kind for sure. A real head turner. Under the hood is a 4.6 liter dohc engine producing 320 hp. Right now it has 350 hp. It also has a bbk cold air intake, and a hyperchip computer programming chip. I have magnaflow header back exhause which sounds awesome. Not too loud, but not too quite either! I lowered it an 1 1/2 with vogtland lower springs. It rides really nice with the wheels and suspension. The car handles corners like a dream. I put drilled and slotted rotors, and painted them and the claipers the car color. There is also ceramic brake pads so it stops just as good as it takes off! There is also 3:73 gear ratio in the rear differentail going along with the independent rear suspension. The rear windows have dark tint on them and the front have a lighter than the rear tint. The wheels are chip foos nitrous 20 inch rims and the tires are bf goodrich g-force t/a kdw. front tires are 245/35/z20. the rear tires are 285/30/z20. they have 75% tread on them. The car runs great and drives down the road straighter than an arrow. If you want one of the nicest mustangs around here's your chance. The left front rim has a scuff on it from the drive up at the bank. I took a picture of it to show. I never seen it as a big deal to do anything about it. This the has absolutely no scratches or dents. I flat sanded and buffed the entire car so there is NO orange peel.

1964 1/2 Ford Mustang convertible 1078 car built

This is truly a 64 1/2 Mustang. With the D code option of 289 4bbl carb and well optioned power steering, remote mirror, power top and Fomoco underdash dealer ad ac. Crazy enough it is a very low production car to be exact the 1078th Mustang to roll off the assembly line. We bought this car from the guy that had it restored. The complete job started in 02 and ended 03. It has been garaged the whole time. It won second place in Houston Autorama several times. He said he just couldn't get the first. It was also invited to the Classy Chassis 100 car show at the Reliant Center (a very prestigious show).
It was restored to taste not 100% original. I would have done it the same way. the GT foglamps, factory dual exhaust with correct tips, "Cobra" engine dress up and Pony interior with deluxe door handles and wood steering wheel. Like I said to me that stuff looks fantastic on a vintage Mustang. This car sits nice and has Rallye wheels and nice BF Goodrich t/a radials.

1968 Ford Mustang Convertible

Title: 1968 Mustang Convertible Show Car
Mileage: 71,000 miles
Location: Clinton Corners, NY

This is a '68 Mustang convertible. I have owned it for 5 years. I purchased her from a retired Ford employee in the Chicago area, who owned it for over 25 years.
She is now a freshly detailed trophy winning show car, ready for you to enjoy. The car has just won 2nd place at the first show entered into this season, having 14 67/68 Mustangs in the class! She is also used in a feature film called "Taking Woodstock". The film will be released in August '09. The movie is about the Woodstock concert in 1969. The car was also used in a Mastercuts hair salon poster ad last summer.
Now about the car. She has a number of options including: Power steering, Power top, Turn signal hood, Automatic transmission, Console, Luggage rack, Factory Chrome wheels, Wheel lip moldings, and Fog lights. The previous owner installed a period correct cruise control unit, and it works. The drivetrain is original and has only 71,000 miles. She has a "C" code 289 2 bbl that runs well, and drives comfortably. It doesn't smoke, and runs cool in the summer. I replaced the shocks and springs so that there will be a better ride.
The paint is the original color of Brittany Blue and looks great, but is older. There is a minor scratch or two that have been touched up. Overall, it shows very well. The body panels and floors are original to the car. There is a small amount of undercoating on the floors, but you can see the quality of the whole car in the photo's. I can take other photo's if needed.
All of the chrome is in great shape. Anything that was not show quality was replaced.
The 2 tone Blue interior is in new condition, with new carpet and new floor mats. The seat covers have no rips or wear. The insides of the doors and the rear seat trim is freshly painted. The power top works as it should and the rear window is clear.
