So you have front bucket seats, racing-style lap belts, a Hurst floor shifter, and provisions for a Rally Pac (it’s present but it will need servicing.) And while most of the superfluous weight was left out of this race-style coupe, there is one addition that adds zero bulk, but a ton of prestige. Gale Halderman, the Mustang’s first designer, signed the glovebox lid of this first-year fastback.
That’s why this one was given a solid restoration investment, and the consignor states it has been driven less than 100 miles since completion. It’s a coupe with good fundamentals including straight body panels, shining brightwork, and a quality respray of the correct Rangoon Red. The overall impression tells you that this is one detail job away from the center spot of a show field, but really, it’s currently presented correctly as a car that wants to be driven.
