Even in this picture though, you can spot the slight difference in the color of the paint between the door and the fender. Both have original paint, but the fenders were painted separately from the body, and this caused a slight difference.
We mentioned this Mustang in a few other Blog posts, and we wanted to post a few pictures of the car today. We will have many more posts in the future about specific areas and details on this particular Mustang.

This Mustang features its original 5 Bolt, VIN stamped engine along with its VIN stamped close ratio Toploader 4 speed transmission. Amazingly enough, it still sports all of the original Poppy Red paint. It also still has the original exhaust system, including 6 64 (June 1964) dated resonators and muffler. All this, along with the fact that it is a rust free California car, makes it extremely valuable to a geek like me in researching these Mustangs.
