Cragar sale

Wonder if the two wheels on the left are repackaged Torq Thrusts?

I can't fully remember, but did #875 once go through KAR auto group in Ohio?
If so, it is one of the 67 500's I once owned.

Yes, and you got from a guy named Tony Perera who reports he bought it from the original owner, but can't remember his name. Any chance that you have that?

Thanks for the link. I just sent a message to the doc and hope to get a reply soon.

Thanks for checking the database. I'll let you know if I get any info as a response.

If you hear back, invite him here to share his story.


They have a dedicated vintage Mustang department

America is no longer obsessed with the automobile. We have had a cultural revolution.

When you go to a car event, you will be with like minded individuals and find all the love you can handle.

I kinda, accidentally bought a car off BaT based on pics and description only. (I was convinced the the reserve was higher and BaT kicked in the difference to make the sale go thru according to seller).

Turned out to be the nicest Vintage Mustang I have ever owned. It was everything the pics showed and more. It was also 1/3rd the cost of a Shelby so there is that.

YMMV.   8)

This seems like too easy of an issue to not have it resolved at the source.

"I called ECS - they have acquired PS Auto Glass. I specifically asked them if they had received any customer feedback regarding fit and also requested they give me the actual physical dimensions of their glass before I would order one. They never replied to the request."

This seems to be the new normal for business in America today.

Dang, Those are sweet wheels. Campagnolo was firing on all 12 cylinders back then.

Miura wheel is the most beautiful wheel ever created.

Lot #766 - This Ford Mustang includes several special one-off features and Ford family provenance. Documentation (included with the sale) from Jean-Jacques Browaeys, Director of Communication of Ford France, dated January 3, 1991, states: "The Ford Mustang serial number 6F08K285715 was the vehicle commissioned by Ford for Henry Ford II during his stays in France. It benefited from a special finish, paint and leather upholstery." Powered by its matching-numbers 289ci K-code V8 engine. The high-performance engine features a 10.5:1 compression ratio and produces a stout 271hp. The V8 is topped with a 4-barrel carburetor as well as a solid-lifter camshaft, heavy-duty valve springs and high-flow exhaust manifold. Power is routed through a 4-speed manual transmission with 3.89:1 rear gearing. The exterior received a special finish by Ford's styling department painted in Raven Black with a specialized high-gloss sheen and special white leather top over a tan leather interior, all features not available in standard-production Mustangs. The Mustang has bucket seats from what would become the 1967 Cougar, and the car reportedly served as a Ford Design Center prototype for styling that would later be used in some of the interior details, including door panels, of the 1968 Cougar. The "HFII" logo is prominently displayed on the steering wheel horn ring, seat belt buckles, exterior door badges and keys. Additionally, the "Deuce's" Mustang is highly optioned with the GT Equipment Group, AM/8-track stereo tape player, power steering, power front disc brakes, power convertible top, grille-mounted fog lights, dual exhaust pipes, stripes on the rocker panels, specially styled steel wheels and a quicker steering ratio than standard-production-model GTs. This car has spent the majority of its life in France, where it was shown at Mustang events.

One of the coolest Mustangs of all time.

Well, apparently 60K doesnt  go as far as it used to.

Trolling for somebody with more money than common sense.
