Dealing with the thought of selling my beautiful 1965 Mustang Fastback “A” code. The car went through a full exterior/interior restoration in the summer of 2016. The car was restored in 2008 by the previous owner. Everything listed below is what I have invested and done personally. Very little has been left untouched since my ownership and I am positive I will leave out some of the updates, if you have any questions just ask. I love the car and have much time, blood, sweat and tears invested however financial reasons force the sale. Its strong, fast hell of a good looking car.

I am testing the waters here first before I explore the eBay auction route. Feel free to call or email me to discuss the car. I will upload more pictures shortly.
Located in San Francisco, Ca
Asking $40K
