1972 Ford Mustang Fastback

Rare V8 manual with front disc brakes; hard as nails muscle car for light recommissioning; canary yellow body not going to get you missed

AMENDMENT: We have now dated this car as a 1972 model, as that is what the V5C states but we can not be certain of the original manufacture date of the vehicle.

This impressive 1969 Mustang was imported into the United Kingdom in 1980 which would account for its V registration plate. Thought to have arrived via the US Military personal import arrangement, it has a 351 cubic-inch V8 Windsor motor coupled to a 4-speed manual gearbox.
The Canary Yellow body shell looks to be solid and cosmetically is described as being suitable for detailing and improvement. The original steering wheel has been replaced by a vintage leather Moto-lita wheel, gear changing being handled through a ‘white ball’ Hurst shifter. The carpets were replaced and a major brake service carried out including a new master cylinder and rear wheel cylinders, before going into storage for the last five or six years.
It is fitted with the desirable (and much needed) disc brakes at the front, the history file showing that in 2009 it had clutch and prop shaft work that amounted to £3,150. In storage for some time, its last MOT expired in October 2014 so it will doubtless benefit from some precautionary recommissioning before use.
Rolling on Torque-Thrust wheels, this Mustang looks hard as nails. Muscle cars don’t come much better than a fastback Mustang, especially when fitted with a stick shift manual gearbox and powerful disc brakes.
Please note that there is a discrepancy regarding the chassis details recorded on the DVLA V5C logbook which lists the car as a 1972 model.
