It is very rare that we find a black coupe and to locate one in this condition is very special. This Mustang was born at the San Jose Ford plant in California on the 25th May 1967 and was then sold into the Californian District soon after. When Adrian our Director in the states saw this car, it was advertised as “no expense spared” this statement appears rather more often than it should and Adrian has driven hundreds of miles in the past to view similar cars but has been rather disappointed! In this case, as you can see, the trip was well worth it. Several hours and a few hundred miles later Adrian turned up at Mr Saul Blanchet‘s beautiful home in a gated luxury community complex in Irvine California. The Classic Mustang was kept under covers in a spacious air-conditioned garage and once the covers were removed, the stunning Black Beauty could really be seen. At one glance of the specification of this Mustang announced what Adrian had found. Saul had purchased the car a few years earlier from a Mr Dale Kluever who lived in Huntington Beach California but ill health and increased medical bills had forced the sale. Over the time Saul owned it he to upgraded the car as he went along and made it into the classic Mustang we see here today. Sauls reason for the sale was that he was downsizing and moving away and it wasn’t possible to take his beloved Mustang with him. He recounted that his favourite pastime was to drive the Mustang from his home town “Irvine” westwards to Newport beach where he would join Highway 1 and follow the coast road through Crystal Cove State Park then down to Laguna Beach and finish at Dana Point with regular stops for coffee or a beer whilst taking in the views.

This Magnificent Mustang benefits from Factory options of Power Steering, power drilled disc brakes, and automatic transmission. Under the bonnet, it’s stunning, with a fully rebuilt Ford 289 V8 engine and a fully rebuilt C4 Automatic Transmission. Other upgrades under the hood are; Billet Aluminium Fully Adjustable Export Brace and Monte Carlo Bar for strengthening, Aluminium Multi-Core Radiator for keeping it cool on those hot Californian days, a MSD Distributor with coil and ignition which gives superb reliability, Edelbrock Aluminium Performer Intake and Four Barrel Carburettor helps power and performance, a Mild Performer Camshaft more performance, Cobra Aluminium Finned Valve Covers with Shelby style Air intake and Long Tube Headers. Other bracketry has also been chromed to give the engine bay that wow factor.

The exterior is painted in magnificent Raven gloss black with the placement of Shelby style red racing stripes. These run from the bottom of the front valance passed the Eleanor Billet style grille across the large Shelby style cowl bonnet and then over the rest of the Mustangs body. Stainless steel bonnet locking pins, Chrome sill protectors, Chrome wing mirrors, large bore stainless exhaust pipe exits, and also a Chrome GT Gas cap is fitted which is surrounded by a very rare fluted Aluminium back panel trim upgrade. The Mustangs stance is aided by the addition of American Racing 15” Torq thrust D series alloy wheels which are shod with new BF Goodrich white billboard tyres. Giving a magnificent overall look to this Mustang.

The interior has had the same refinement, from new headlining, dashboard, dials, seat belts, to the superbly newly trimmed black seats which are piped in red to match the outside colour scheme. New Shelby style luxury leather door cars with new chrome door furniture. Between the front seats sits a custom made centre console with handmade wood veneer inlay to match the new instrument binnacle, dashboard and glove box door. Slightly further back is an armrest to match the black interior. Other upgrades include GT style rev counter which sits above the black Shelby Cobra steering wheel, it has an aluminium B+M automatic gear shifter upgrade also. If you do ever tire of the rumble of the V8 then a high-quality Alpine stereo system with a boot mounted amplifier is present to keep you company on your road trips! Front electric windows have been installed with chrome switchgear. Drivers side remote wing mirror is also installed. Full new black carpet set has also been fitted with black GT over mats on for protection.

As you would expect the underside of the Mustang floors and chassis are totally solid throughout showing all original spot wields and original manufacturing marks. The suspension and other bushes etc have been renewed and a Dual Big Bore flow master exhaust is fitted, which enhances that magnificent Mustang V8 soundtrack. The car is going through our extensive checklist in our fully equipped Mustang workshop as I write this, so the next custodian will have a beautiful and reliable classic to add to their collection.

From the specification above one can clearly see that this Mustang has been treated to a wonderful program of upgrades and the end result is a car of outstanding quality that performs superbly in all departments, carries unique styling features and yet retains everything that a Classic Mustang should. Oh and that V8 exhaust note is just fabulous. It goes without saying that this will be a show winner if that’s something you would be interested in or if not be prepared to be stopped at every occasion for it to be photographed. Why not come and visit us, you will not be disappointed to drive this Black Beauty home. Join in the fun that can be had owning a quality classic Mustang.
