Muscle Car UK: How We Find Our Mustangs!

 So, with arrangements made to view several cars in Yuma and California we left the southern exit to the Ranch where our office is based in AZ and headed out to the sr303 which links with the I-10 heading to Los Angeles.  The 303 runs south towards South Mountain, where some of the oldest rocks on the planet can be found.

We are heading to Yuma a dusty old Western Town set on the Mexican Border where Arizona meets California and the Colorado River makes its way to the sea.

After a few miles on I-10 we turn south again on the 85 for Yuma & San Diego. 

The road crosses the largest city in Maricopa County, Buckeye another old western town with its history going back to the earliest days of the “Wild Wild West”. Could of sworn we just saw John Wayne and Clint Eastwood!!

 We carry on driving further south, through undulating Cactus populated desert landscape with its never-ending distant mountains. Mile after mile it continues to unfold until the road narrows where it meets the town of Gila Bend that has an old western feel with a “few good old cowboys” wandering around the town. Many of the town’s properties are empty including the derelict unaltered Stouts Hotel which is long since closed.

 Just after which is the Space Age Cafe which was built in the time of America’s space race and is now a popular stop off. A quick bite here was definitely called for.

 Once we were fuelled it was time to fuel the vehicle, a relatively low price per gallon? Now we pressed onto Yuma for our first viewing.

Unfortunately, the car in Yuma was not what we had hoped for as the description wasn’t correct for us. So onwards to San Diego, for another 5 hour drive we went!

We arrived in San Diego and we found this beauty and we just had to snap it up! This 1966 Mustang 302, Resto-mod with a full Edlebrock top end, Alloy head, intake carb and mild cam. Along with these the Pony also came with updated power steering, Power discs and an all-round upgraded interior. With an added bonus of a huge history file which can be very rare in a car of this age. The paint work was also stunning and not a scratch.

                    

  As you can see from these pictures, this is an amazing find which we can’t wait to show you back in the U.K.

With the car now on it’s way to the Port to be shipped you can expect to see this beauty in the U.K at the end of November!!
