All the original documents are inbound to my home as we speak. Including Marti report. Only a 2 owner car (now three...me).......the car has been in Canada for most of its life. A REAL picky(in a positive way) fellow has had the car for a looooooonnngg time. He has taken very well care of it and kept as original as possible. The car has won numerous awards at canadian car shows/gatherings.

The ONLY thing that is not original is the color........the car was originally grabber yellow. Everything else is bone stock.

I think all you detectives out there know which car it is now...........I only hope the car is as original as the seller said.....then I am HAPPY!

As a guy who drives a yellow mustang, I think you should return the car to its original grabber yellow.

I think it looks great as a black Mach 1 even though I am partial to the yellow ones too.

 

Congrats on the purchase and I can't wait to hear more details on this car!

Mwilson7......were you the fellow that bought the grabber green car from Japan a few weeks ago? I was seriously looking at that auction too. Grabber green is an awesome color for these cars.

 

Do you have a thread where you have posted more pictures?

yep, that's me! Car is safe and sound but I won't be able to get behind the wheel until December as I'm out of the country. It's killing me to say the least!

 

Here's a link with some pictures. Let me know if you have any questions.

Very, very nice car indeed! If it is still all original and in good shape, while being nearly 100% original I'd consider painting it to make it completely 100% again (I like yellow better than black so maybe I'm a little biased there ;-) ). Your call of course :-)

 

Either way I wish you many happy and safe miles with it!
