I’m not shy in my admiration for first-gen Mustangs, and I have to admit that one is pretty high on my perpetual list of next old cars. There are almost always a handful of these for sale in my area at any given time, but this one jumped out at me because of the color and the proud grandma in the photos. Seriously, who wouldn’t want to have a car painted “twilight turquoise?” I’d probably lose the Cragars and put some blackwall tires on it, but I think that’s all it really needs. If it’s nice enough for grandma to drive, it must be nice enough for you.

After a few weeks off, I’m back with a car I really have to stop myself from calling about. For any number of reasons, I’m kind of jonesing for an early Mustang right now, and this looks like a pretty good example – assuming it’s solid underneath. The paint looks original, and the fade actually adds to the appeal for me. I never said I was normal. The wheel and tire combo is almost perfect (just a shade too small), and the V8-4-speed setup is ideal. Of course, I’m sure everything aft of the rear axle is red dust and bondo at this point, at least that’s what I’m telling myself to keep from picking up the phone.
