History
The car was purchased new from Collins Ford owned by my grandfather. The owner was a third cousin who just graduated high school. To my understanding the car went to Brown and then to Princeton twice as it was her college car and two of her kids. My father sold his 65 gt convertible in 89 when my brother graduated HS and purchased him a gt convertible 1986. To replace his 65 convertible he picked up old blue from his cousin who still had the car. He went through most of it himself over the next couple of years but it was a driver immediately. Upon graduating law school he passed the car on to me and it stays in my garage most of the time except for the occasional drive down memory lane. Its great having something that you drove when you were 16 as it hasn't changed a bit except for a few upgrades including my controversial cloning of a gt. Say what you will but I kept the upgrades factory even if they aren't meant for that car.
