If it's a Mexican Mustang it's a Windsor, not a Cleveland. All their 351 cars were Windsors.

NACA hood, Hood latches, 4 Speed, Front Disc brakes, tach with 3 gauges in center, clock, Clean interior, IMO the best steering wheel design. No real apparent rust. 351W much easier to find and cheaper parts. I've seen people ask for more for a worse car than this. I'd offer $12k and see if he bites.

Trunk work and rear wheel wells seems bad but all other areas seem ok - but you have to look at it in natura! Concerning the special Mexican stuff it seems to be all there to restore it to original condition. 

The paint scheme is not correct for an original so called "Mexican Sprint", it had to look like this:

You could do some research with "Mexican Sprint", there is some information in the web... But many are not at all painted correct. As I recall they had no hood blackout with the NACA-hood...

Trunk did look a mess but couldn't quite tell what was going on there. Looked like someone spilled a gallon of tar or perhaps it was hit (gas tank looks new but notice where the fuel line connects?) Drivers rear side marker light retention inside trunk also looks really odd. Paint scheme on this car looks more like the GT-351 made in 72. I thought the Mexican sprints were all sports roof body style and 73?

Got it. Includes original paperwork. Paint is crap but pistachio is original color.
