My new Mustang 68 in Russia

3610 66
Hello to all cowboys! My name is Stephan, I'm from Russia. Recently, at the Copart auction, I bought a Mustang 68, a coupe, with a 200 engine and brought it to Russia. A car from New York. There are only a few dozen mustangs of the 1st generation in Russia. There is a power steering, an automatic transmission. That's all). There are a couple of holes on the body. The engine starts and the car drives. I've already driven about 600 miles. The plans are to eliminate the problems of the mechanical part in a year and in a couple of years to do the bodywork.

Welcome to VMF !!
I spent a month in Russia - St. Petersburg, Moscow, Novosibirsk and Khabarovsk- (and Tallin, Estonia), in 1993. What a wonderful and beautiful country with a strong, welcoming people! I hope to go back to visit again someday. Perhaps I will see vintage Mustangs and other classics on the streets!

Now Russia has changed a lot. We have quite a lot of vintage cars now. But they are prevented from bringing them by large customs duties. For example, for a Mustang 200 cid, the customs duty is about $ 23,000.😬😬😬😬🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️

Thanks Chris about color👍

Yes, it is! At least they'll recognize the Mustang here. I have a couple another American cars. One of them is difficult to recognize, there are only 4 of them in Russia. And I have 2 of them.😄Its Plymout Fury 71'

Welcome to the world of Mustangs.We're on our third 66 Mustang, all with the 200cid six. They are easy to work on when you must and a pleasure to drive.
