Default Clearly not a GT...

Ford : Mustang GT in Ford | eBay Motors


BUT that being said I actually am loving the red and maroon(ish) interior scheme they have going on.

Is that a custom upholstery job, or did they take some two tones black/white and dye them you think?

Could be special order or a dye job. Hard to tell in photos.

Okay, let me correct myself. If it IS a GT, it has been modified incorrectly. It's an automatic so would have a GTA emblem rather than a GT emblem. In addition, the placement of the GT emblem looks to be off to me.

I'm not sure but it was my belief that GTs did not have the running pony emblem. I could be entirely mistaken on this however.

So if it's a GT by birth, it's not a correct GT anymore. Which is fine.

But what I'm more concerned about is that interior...I honestly LOVE the combo of that paint and that interior. The black with the slightly understated red (a little less BAM than lemans stripes) is really appealing to me.

Nicer car than some I have seen. He probably needs to sell it to make room for his new blimp.
I think he restores zeppelins also.

There is nothing uglier than a turn signal hood with a hood scoop on it, well maybe a 68 steering wheel. The running pony on the fender is pretty ugly too.

To your question, I suspect that the upholstery is a custom aftermarket combination.

The visual "GT" cues are irregular enough that it clearly did not come down the assembly line looking like that. If curious about whether the car is a legitimate factory built GT, contact Kevin Marti (Marti Autoworks) for one of his reports.

Nah I'm not considering bidding on it.

Could the garage or hanger, the stang is in, be any bigger? One tool box, and 400,000 square feet of nothing.

I'm kind of wondering if I could get ahold of a pair of red seats for a 66 and dye just the outside (leaving the ribbed section alone) and produce a similar effect.

Yeah y'know I dunno I tried to figure that out myself. Clearly built with the idea that stuff inside will be getting wet (the grates in the floor) but really not sure what it is. Reminds me a bit of an old army armory motorpool but the walls aren't right for that.

I think that the hood scoop and luggage rack really clash.

I've never honestly liked those luggage racks...but I agree, I could deal with it if they had either the scoop (though I don't like scoops on a turn signal hood) OR the luggage rack..but between the turn signal hood, scoop, luggage rack, and double stripe, it's just...a lot.

I'm also not a fan of it's stance, I'm not sure what's going on with that lowered rear.

I still like the seats, what we can see of them anyways.
