Newbie -- Hello!
I'm a first time Mustang owner based in Edmonds, Washington.
My story is this: as a teenager my wife lusted over a baby blue Mustang her neighbors owned. The neighbors were off-loading it and offered it to her right around learning-to-drive age. But her parents were not willing to splurge on an antique car. (She ended up driving a Dodge Intrepid!)
So, as a GRAND GESTURE, for Christmas I pledged to get her her dream car.
We picked up a '65, 200, 6-cylinder, cruise-o-metic coupe in Arcadian Blue. Straight body. Pretty incredible original interior. New gas lines. Engine rebuilt in the mid-90s. Original options include power steering and air conditioning unit (though no compressor, etc. present).
We're looking to turn it into an around-town daily driver, though we want to keep the original aesthetic and as much of the original parts as possible. Goals include: upgrading to disc brakes (power?), installing three-point harnesses, finding a Bluetooth radio option. We also have the immediate needs of: connecting the e-brake, eliminating water leak on passenger side (possibly windshield seal), stopping power steering fluid leak.
I would LOVE to meet up with others locally to check out your cars and discuss option for mine.
Thanks for welcoming me to the forum.
