I purchased this car five years ago from Fraser Dante in Georgia and have registered it in the UK (EU VAT paid). It now lives in Rome where I have enjoyed driving it on numerous classic car tours, runs and even just going to the beach with the family.
The rare turquoise colour makes it an incredible head turner. During classic car runs it's a magnet with younger fans who flock to it far more that around more prestigious brands and models.
This Mustang GT is a wonderful cruiser, the fifth gear allowing to reach motorway speed limits at very low revs. It's restored and upgraded engine makes it a real muscle car which can leave most modern cars in the dust at traffic lights. It's upgraded suspension and after market bracing makes it very stable. The steering is very accurate even when powering through mountain roads and hairpin turns. It's an exciting ride.
I have kept this car in dry storage and serviced it regularly with a local classic car specialist. I have decided to sell this car reluctantly as I am no longer use it as much with my children and am focusing more on pre-war cars.
Below is an extract of the information provided by Fraser Dante.
