Maybe it’s just the frustration with my stalled transmission project talking, but the siren song of this Mustang is hard for me to resist. I love the color (particularly non-traditional on a Mustang) and the unmolested, all-original look, despite the obvious flaws – it’s a six-cylinder automatic car (low-end Mustangs had light-duty brakes, suspension, and other parts, so there’s a vast difference between this and a factory V8 car). But I could really see myself happily cruising this all summer, putting in a little TLC (new carpet and clean up the engine) and flipping it for just about the same price next Spring. It doesn’t help that a superior at work just bought a ’70 Mustang Boss 302 replica and is still in the honeymoon phase with it. My vindictive side can’t wait until he takes it apart to fix the chattering clutch and doesn’t get it back together for 6 months.
