I bet you just said to yourself, "Wow, that's a great-looking car!" While we most often see early Mustangs in bright Poppy Red and Wimbledon White, this one dressed in triple black looks incredible. Combined with the blackwall tires on classic styled steel wheels, it's almost understated, as if the Mustang put on a tuxedo for a night out on the town. With a peppy 289 under the hood, it's a great runner as well, and there aren't many cars out there that generate the same universally warm feelings that an early Mustang does-EVERYONE loves them. The paint was obviously done some time ago, but it is holding up well with no glaring issues, and a professional cut and buff would probably transform this car into something spectacular. As it sits today, however, it is a very handsome cruiser with straight black flanks that aren't hiding any dirty secrets. The sheetmetal is straight, there are no questionable areas, and the prep on the body was very good before the paint was applied. Black cars are especially susceptible to shoddy workmanship. All the great Mustang detailing remains, too, from the iconic grille with the Mustang "corral" in the center, to the brightly polished rocker panel moldings, to the cool faux vents in the rear quarters. An accessory trunk rack was installed, which adds some interest out back and looks more authentic than a goofy wing would on this car's vintage curves. This is just a flat-out awesome looking car. This black pony features a matching Pony interior, which included embossed seatbacks with, of course, more horses, and it's a highly desirable option. There's also a full-length console, which I've always felt completes the Mustang's interior and adds some handy storage bins. The seats themselves are supportive and firm, thanks to new foam underneath, and they show almost no wear or sun damage despite living in a convertible. Simple gauges are easily visible through the stylish 3-spoke steering wheel with its fashionable 1960s skinny rim, and the original AM radio still lives in the dash. Overhead, a recent black vinyl convertible top has been installed; this photo shoot was probably the first time it has been up in quite some time, and those wrinkles will definitely work themselves out in time. The trunk is also correctly finished, including a recent reproduction mat and a full-sized steel wheel and whitewall radial. V8 power in a Mustang is a great way to travel, and this one features a C-code 289 topped by a 2-barrel carburetor. With 200 horsepower and plenty of torque, it moves the lightweight Mustang easily and makes all the right sounds while doing it. Wearing a proper coat of black paint on the block and topped with a gold air cleaner and valve covers, the engine looks like it was restored some years ago and has been well maintained ever since. It's not show detailed, but it is honest and clean, with no outrageous modifications or questionable additions. Key it up and it fires easily, and pulls cleanly through the gears in the C4 3-speed automatic behind it. Out back there's a rugged 9-inch rear end with very highway-friendly 2.80 gears that make this an easy cruiser. Underneath it's incredibly solid, with all the original convertible chassis reinforcements still in place. It features a single exhaust system as original that has a muted V8 rumble that fits this car's personality. Drum brakes at all four corners work well, and those wonderful styled steel wheels I mentioned earlier wear modern Goodyear radials. Great running and driving Mustangs that haven't been modified or are full of rust are getting harder to find all the time. This one isn't a show-winner, but it doesn't cost $50,000 either, and the triple black color combination is simply spectacular. Ready to drive and enjoy today, this car really needs nothing but a new owner. The market has moved on these recently, and it's not unusual to see them trading hands for over $30,000 in this condition. Great looks, V8 performance, and a lot of recent work-this one looks like a bargain to me. Call today! This vehicle is located in our Atlanta showroom.
