Hi all, im very excited as I just purchased my first mustang. A 65 2+2 caspian blue fastback. All numbers match and its in great shape. I have been searching high and low to find the right car for the right amount of $$$$ so once I saw her I had to jump on it. So as the car beging its travel (from Oregon to my home in NY), Im trying to decide on if I should put racing stripes on it or not. I know its not a GT (I only wish) but putting stripes on it gives a sexy look. Im torn because I really do want to keep it as original to factory and not make a GT clone of her. If I do decide to put stripes on it I'll probably go with Vinyl just in case I want them removed. Here is a pic of it, please let me know all your thoughts. If I dont do stripes I think i need to at least put amber fog lights on. Tks everyone for your opinions
Beautiful car...and I wouldn't be so worried about about not keeping it factory original. Like you said you could do vinyl and they could come off relatively easy. The stripes just make these cars look mean as hell when they're coming down the road at you. Even if you did make them permanent they wouldn't hurt the value of the car at all. The only place they might negatively affect you is a car show. You might lose points for them not being an option on the car...but as far as that goes (and I may be wrong here) but I think the foglights were a GT only option anyway.
Nice ride! I would have put stripes on my fastback, but my wife talked me out of it and since she hasn't complained about the $ invested, I went along. Go for the stripes! Like said before, they look mean and the vinyl's not permenant. I'm thing about using rims similar to yours. Have fun!
Wow! That is one nice fastback. Beautiful! I would go with the stripes, probably vinyl like you were thinkin. They would really spice it up alot, and I think they would look nice with those nice rims and foglights. SWEET CAR! :bigthumbsup
