    rust was certainly the bane of the stang's, in fact here we called them "rustang's"

    many people have spent lot's of money to restore them, and if done right, they look like showroom condition.

    of course, a car like that needs to be kept in a garage during the winters, the road salts nowadays will eat through the old metal that it still has, and then too, any old car should be garaged for the winter, and during the rest of the year, and driven on the weekends to car shows or "old car day's gathering's".

    i hope they never sell it, and it get's passed onto the succession of thier kids.

    and if anyone of them sell it off, or wreck it, may thier feet fall off....

    I noticed the 260 emblem on the fender, the predecessor to the 289. I had a buddy with a '63 Falcon fastback with the 260 and 4 speed.

    Wondering how the first one got sold out of an Illinois dealership. I would have thought Motor City.
