It’s in outstanding mechanical condition, owing partly to its careful refurbishment in Texas before being brought into the UK. Finished in Silver Blue Poly, it’s fitted with the 3-speed automatic gearbox and was optioned from new with the GT Equipment Package. Mechanically, the car benefits from a recent engine rebuild in 2022 with American car specialists, Tornado Automotive, Buckinghamshire, with over £5,000 invested. During our vendor’s eight-year ownership, it has always been looked after, serviced and maintained by Tornado with a no-expense spared approach, including yearly servicing and MOT testing for peace of mind, despite being exempt. Beyond its impressive mechanical prowess, the car cosmetically presents remarkably well. Upon arrival in the the UK in 2015, it went through a thorough refurbishment by Fontain/Alex Green, ‘The Mustang Specialist’, which entailed a hugely impressive list of jobs, all on file. The car was fully resprayed in its original Silver Blue including the engine bay, body, and boot. The list is significant and needs to be read to understand the extent of the parts and labour that went into this mini-restoration. Unusually, for a car from the US, its history is well documented and can be traced back to its origins in Texas with a plethora of bills and invoices on file for work undertaken. The Mustang is an emblem of automotive history and an icon of American muscle. Its legendary status and popularity are well-deserved, as it offered a unique blend of performance, style and affordability. This particular Mustang, with its outstanding mechanical and cosmetic condition, stands as a testament to the enduring appeal of the model and is offered at a very sensible guide. A lovingly-restored, very well cared-for example of America’s most recognisable muscle car, presented in fabulous condition. More Details Lot 737 Bid On Lot 737
