Here we have one of my all-time favourite Mustangs. We purchased this stunning Mustang in November 2014 in a small town in Arizona called Yuma on the border of Mexico. We acquired this Mustang from an older gentleman who had owned the car for 15 years. He restored the Mustang towards the end of his ownership. He had upgraded all the brakes front and rear to discs as he preferred the feel to drum brakes and living in a very hot climate their efficiency was far greater. The car has factory fit power steering, and centre console. It is very original inside the cock pit, with original steering wheel, dials, black rosette vinyl seats and console. The interior and dash do not have any cracks in the vinyl, as one might expect from a desert car. The engine and gearbox were also rebuilt at that time.

The reason I have said that it is one of my favorites of all time , is that I drove the Mustang from Yuma to Phoenix through the Sonoran Desert in Arizona which took me three and a half hours of fabulous fun! Driving through the desert with cactus and sand either side and the mountains in the distance was very much a “top gear” moment for me.I must admit the thought of driving a 52 year old classic through a Desert did fill me with a little dread, however the fabulous fastback didn’t miss a beat and got me back to our American office without any problem.
Since we sold it last the Mustang has covered less than 1,000 miles as it has been kept in a collection and only used for sunny day trips out. This is a stunning early fastback that gets admiring glances and comments when it’s out and about.
The body and chassis are rust free , due to its life in the desert, so therefore this is a superb example of an early fastback.
