Default Semi-trailer find x2

I just bought not one but two Mustangs. Stored in a semi trailer for years.

1964 1/2 (7/24/64) survivor "D" code, Pagota green, white top and interior. I do have the correct wire spinner wheel covers too. 100% original except it had a high quality repaint in 1982. She is beautiful! I plan on detailing it and finding her a good home someplace.

1966 convert 289 4v, pony interior w/rally pac, NOS (still in box) Ford rally wheels. Tripple black originally. Needs some chemotherapy (not much) and repainted back to Raven black. This one I will probably keep for myself.

I also got 4-5 pickup loads of NOS, used and repop parts to go with them. Original AM/8-Track restored and NOS (in Ford box) fenders, blower motors, heater cores and so much more I don't know yet. Merry Christmas to me!

Not my first rodeo! I love pics too. They answer many of the ?s that arrise. Digital "film" is cheap so why not?

Haven't had a 'Stang for many years, so this will be fun. Had another '66 when I was married long ago. Never, not had a convertible of some sort since mt 1st car. Even my pickup has a sunroof. Mustangs don't swim like my Amphicars do, so I have to resist the urge to drive into the lake!

Passed n a set of NOS SSW's years ago. Thought the $1200 for the set was kinda steep. Kicking myself now...nice find! Good luck with the resto's!

Nice score. Those extra parts wouldn't also be some for a 69 fastback would there? Bruce

I don't have the inventory yet, but I suspect that they are all 65-66

Nice find for sure. I spent my childhood hanging out at the bodyshop where my grandfather worked. The shop owner had an Amphicar out back in the compound, I spent a lot of time playing in that car.

Thanks, 4 pickup loads of new and NOS parts so far. This is fun fun fun!

I have a lot of fun playing in my Amphicar too? By chance, was that Amphicar's door welded shut and red?

Thanks. I was very fortunate to find these. They are in good hands and hopefully I'll find a good home for the 64 1/2 soon.
