Previous owner restored this 65 mustang original GT in mid 1980's . I purchased it to update the preservation - new top, top hydrolics, radiator, water pump, control arms, minor paint, shocks, bushings, seat covers and lots of little things to preserve this original for another 50 years. Biggest challenge has been getting simple parts like weather stripping that are actually factory correct. A unique factory GT convertible with factory AC and split bench in original Springtime yellow - one repaint with mid 80's restoration in single stage. Wherever possible I have reburbished and reused the original parts. The only nonfactory addition was power brake booster - I drive this car weekly - but the original large single master cylinder has been saved. This always California car (built in San Jose, first owner in Hollywood) is now "retired" in Hawaii - an "active" retirement !
