Of course, we have to thank Jeremy Turner at Maple Hill Restoration for doing all of the hard work. Jeremy and I work well together, because we both enjoy the research and details and have the same "vision" when it comes to a restoration like this.
We drove the Mustang over 160 miles before the show to work out the "bugs." Everything seems to be working well, and we hope to enjoy many more miles.
I've owned this particular car longer than any single car that I have ever owned, so it is definitely staying. It was purchased about 30 years ago!
...and just to wrap up the Grand National show, the car won a Gold Award in the 64 1/2-65 Convertible Concours Trailered Class along with the Prestige Award for the Concours Trailered Class. This award is given to the highest scoring 64 1/2-78 Mustang at the show in the Concours Trailiered Class.
More exciting news...look for a new restoration series here on the Blog soon. Our early production (Carryover) 1966 GT350 Shelby is on the rotisserie over at Jeremy's shop. We will have some pictures of the glassbeading process on the body soon!
