Hi, I am 55 years old and new to this forum. I am from Germany (sorry for any faults). Ever since I saw a 66 Mustang in my childhood, I wanted one!
So, finally since 2013 we own a caspian blue 1965 coupe. It is a california black plate and was restored in 2012 probably in L.A. (new paint job, interiour, wheather stripping, wheels/tyres, chrom and a few rubber bushings), then sold to a German clasic cars dealer in Bremen, Germany. It has a nice paint job and no rust. We love that car and it will stay with us forevver...!
The last few years we spent some serious money on the Pony. In depth corrosion prevention underneath the car, new Painless harness, new Mallory Ignition, new Holley 4160 carb, new TCI converter and TCI tranny, new HD 5 leaf springs at the rear and new springs at the top plus KYB shocks.
We also had serious vibration issues. The drifshaft was 1.2inch too short, u-joints were slightly worn and the angle of the 8inch axle (a 1975 Granada axle according to the metal tag) were not parallel with the engine/transmission: The engine was 1.9 degrees down, axle was 0 degrees! Corrected it with a 2 degree aluminium axle shim, now it runs smooth as silk.
I am member of the biggest vintage Mustang club here in Germany (First Mustang Club of Germany, nearly 1000 members), but from now on I will read and post here in this forum as well.

Guten morgan! It doesn't take long to spend a lot on the old cars, does it? Beautiful car! I had to chuckle a little thinking here is an export car with no export brace...That would be the very next thing I upgrade. Do you see many Dutch built cars from the old Amsterdam plant in the club? I always thought it would be cool to bring one back to the states.
