Man surprises brother with rare 69 Mustang he lost 30+ yrs ago!

I came across this article below and though to share it with you Mustang fans because it's a great story about 1st car experiences, and in this case,*a classic 69 Mustangs and some brotherly love. le/surprises-older-brother- with-mustang/

My friend knows this gentleman and told me that he spent years searching for the "right Mustang" - one that matched the rare Mustang*his older bother lost 30+ years ago during a flood in Brigantine Island.** Evidently, over the years his older was still sad he lost his favorite car, so his younger brother search for the SAME EXACT ONE just so he could restore it and gift it to him.** He search for years and just last year found THE car and restored it for the ultimate surprise. It was the same color (Silver Jade), same engine (302), same black deluxe interior*with an ultra*rare bench seat (I think less than 400 total Mustangs*had a bench seat).** Pretty neat!* Love stories like this!

Nice story. To be clear, it wasn't the original car. The brother located the same year, model and color Mustang his brother had in the 1980's.

1970 Fastback (to be finished outside as a Boss 302 clone)
393 Windsor AFR 205 heads with 11.5:1 compression, Victor Jr. intake, solid roller cam with shaft mount roller rockers
Tremec TKO 5 Speed
