Will this 65-mustang convertible ever be finished?
It all started, for us any way in 1993, with this great deal. We purchased
an intact running 1965 mustang convertible from the estate of artist Pingkerton
for Twenty Five hundred. He collected mustangs and this particular stang
he used as his daily driver.
Due to the lack of money, time and /or enthusiasm this auto restoration has
been an on going project in one form or another for the past thirteen years.
The engine has been rebuilt, the brakes replaced, along with the ragtop, original
red striped tires and interior. The current part of the project is the bodywork
and a fresh coat of paint. The saying,
“It’s a labor of love”, really does apply to this project.
We look forward to the day that we can say the project is complete. We can
show the car proudly at the GHMC biggest little car show; join up with all
the GHMC members for parades, road rally’s, and exciting events that
always come up through out the year. Just as soon as this project is complete
Mari’s 1965 2+2 fastback, that looks more like swiss cheese than a proud
mustang, is in the coral waiting for its turn in the mustang restoration garage.
But that story will have to wait for another Pony Tales car of the month
