This is a very special Classic Mustang V8. Built-in Fords San Jose Plant in California in 1967. The order was for a Springtime Yellow Mustang with medium Saddle haircell vinyl upholstery. The specification included Power Steering, Air conditioning and Automatic Transmission. This Mustang rolled off the line on April 19th 1967 and was delivered through Center City Motors San Diego California to its first owners who were Grand Rent a Car Corporation from LosAngeles.

This can be shown by the original handbook and also the very rare Owner card from Ford. As was normal in those days the car would be kept for one year then returned back into the Ford network in California. The Mustang was then purchased by William and Kerri Ellis who lived in Pomona California at 13,141 miles on the 8th May 1968. They paid $2474.25 and we have the original signed invoice as well as the signed Ford Motor company warranty paperwork. It was with the Ellis Family for many years and spent most of its life as a second car. On their passing, the family decided to part exchange the Mustang for a new Honda. The dealership was so impressed with the little car that a high-quality refresh had been carried out as the car had been garaged for many many years. At the same time the original 289 V8 motor had a mild Edelbrock Camshaft, Intake & 4 Barrel Carburettor installed, the Air Conditioning was modernised and all aspects of the car were gone through, it was put into their showroom for sale, Fred and Louise Brown saw it whilst having their car serviced. It was sold as genuine 23,000 miles from new, they both immediately fell in love with this beautiful pastel yellow coloured Mustang and had to own it. It was obviously a black plate Californian car as it had resided in California all its life hence the amazing condition.

 

How did we find it? Well Adrian our director who runs the business Stateside had been on a wasted journey way up into Northern California and the trip had been very disappointing until he found a new ad for a very exciting prospect………………. just one hitch we were nearly 600 miles away!

 

They explained to Fred and Louise that the mileage they would have to travel would take them some time and wouldn’t arrive until the following day. Fred and Louise were excited about the fact that the Mustang may go to the U.K so they said they would wait until Adrian arrived as they wanted their pride and joy to go to a really good home.

 

Now, this is most unusual and he fully expected to find the car had been sold when he arrived, however, Fred and his wife were as good as their word and were an absolutely lovely couple living in a magnificent hilltop property way up in the Jurupa Valley area of Southern California. Why was such a beautiful Classic Mustang for sale?

 

They explained that as they were having a house built deep in Prescott Valley Arizona with only dirt roads for access the decision to sell the little Muscle Car had been made entirely because of this fact

 

Built-in San Jose CA, this Mustang remained in California its entire life and it shows as the body is completely original, absolutely solid and all the sheet metal is factory fitted.

 

Now, having a solid really attractive car is one thing but there is another factor that makes this Classic Mustang so exceptional……….the way it drives.

 

Get behind the wheel and this Muscle Car delights, the crisp powerful acceleration and ride free from any unwanted noises, precise steering and brakes that work superbly give the impression of how an almost new Mustang would have felt back in the late Sixties. Inside the immaculate cockpit, the car is superb with all new interior making this a total pleasure to drive.

 

We had the pleasure of driving from Fred and Louis’s home on a warm sunny day some 60 miles to Long Beach right through the centre of Los Angeles and this superb Mustang made every mile a pleasure and that is saying something if you have ever seen LA traffic!

 

This is a definite best in show candidate or survivor class winner, with the history which we will be framed and given to the next custodian. If you fancy time travel come and visit this magnificent Mustang.
