Reputable Mechanics/Enthusiast for Inspection

I'm looking to get a vintage mustangs 65-68, have taken a look at a couple. Before I actually pull the trigger to purchase, does anyone have a recommendation for a trusted mechanic or one of you mustang experts to perform a pre-purchase inspection to make sure everything looks good?

I'm searching for cars all throughout so cal. Budget around 25-30k, looking for a 65-68 Fastback, manual transmission. Not looking for a concourse but just driveable and no rust. Close to as stock as possible.

Thanks!

I have not yet. Are you referring to a club like Welcome to OCMC in Orange County ? I will try reaching out to them.

Mustangs & Fast Fords Oc, 3001 S Main St, Santa Ana, CA 92707. (714) 850-1500 Paul is the owner and is knowledgeable and friendly. He can get most any part for you, if he doesn’t already have it in stock, and he runs a full restoration/mechanic shop too.
