First of many newbie questions
Hello from northern Iowa! I am the proud new owner (the 4th) of a '65 Mustang 289. She came to me through the magic of Facebook Marketplace where the more you look at something in particular, the more ads you see for said item. I wasn't really in the market for a vintage Mustang but since my first car in high school in the 80's was a '67 Mustang, I can't help but look at ads for them when they pop up.
Recently an ad caught my eye: the location, condition and price was right so I went to look at her and when my boyfriend said "she won't be around long at that price" I knew that was a green light for purchasing her. She is black with a white vinyl top, which everyone that has seen her says they've never seen that combination before. So my first question is this: is this a factory combo or did someone either add the top or paint the original top? I know the first owner was a doctor that ordered her so could he have ordered that combo as an option? Thanks for any insight you can provide!
