History Purchased in Aug. 1984 as fun car. I owned a 3 sp. Caspian Blue 1965 2+2 in 1969 this caused me to thing of a mustang again. I drove this car often for 5 years. Then, a disaster struck as the engine blew. The car sat for the next 10 years as children went to college, then, got married. In 1996 began what was to become a 6-7 year restoration project. Got it on the road in the spring of '2004 and have been attending shows and cruises since.
