Super Sweet, Super Clean Classic
you ever wondered how the Ford Mustang became such a huge american icon
or why it is one of the most sought after classics of all time, take a
few minutes and check out Ron and Diane's 65 stang.
perfectly clean lines and all around good looks, this beauty can't help
but turn heads and charm crowds where ever she goes. From what started
as a rebuild of Diane's first car, a 65 coupe she bought from her brother
in 1977, its hard to imagine how this cherry 65 convertible would be the
end result. As remarkable as this sounds, that is exactly what happened.
rebuilding the engine and suspension, the coupe was diagnosed with severe
body rust and the search for a healthy body donar began. Thanks to Don
Chambers and his wife from Mustang Country, the perfectly straight 65
convertible you see here was located. With it being a six cylinder, Diane's
coupe with a freshly rebuilt V8, made the ideal donar car.
