In the ad the seller is suggesting to a potential buyer looking for an original Mustang  that “you can build one hell of an Eleanor Shelby.”  I just threw up in my mouth a little.   :-[

No disrespect intended, but a bit "over sprung ". If I owned it, it would be the first thing I would see, repeatedly.

You see the T-pan?  This looks like an aftermarket  pan that was made three ways, COBRA, COUGAR and BOSS302.  I had the later two for a short while.  Nice trading stock.

I always wonder do folks ever read an ad and it gies like this:

"Rare" .....oh man thats rare I should buy it now

"Build an Eleanor"....oh man, I should look up an Eleanor...
Oh wow I am going to build on of those

I just don't see the point of some statements in adverts

It really drives home the point that it was "over spray" on the floor pans.

When I see fully painted floor pans all I wonder is what person thought a factory worker would bend over far enough to paint the floor pan?

Sometimes the lower rocker doesn't even have full paint coverage. Must have been a tall painter  ;)

Very accurate over spray detail picture. Thanks for sharing Pete.

Notice there is only one decal on the driver side shock tower.

According to the registry the motor has been replaced twice.

I agree.

IIRC that was a discussion on Forum 1.0
