We always love to receive pictures of our customers' Mustangs! Here is a really cool 1966 Mustang GT Coupe! The Tahoe Turquoise color is fantastic with the factory black vinyl top.
It has an even better story - check it out! Here is what our customer sent:
The car ,"Ralph" named after my grandfather, was ordered in Fort Worth Texas in 1965 and then moved and spent the remainder of its time on Vashon Island in Puget Sound, Seattle. I only got to see my grandfather a half dozen times or so growing up, but we always talked about the Stang on the phone. After years and years he agreed to leave it to me on two conditions - do not change the paint color, and DO NOT sell it out of the family.
In 1999, I had it shipped to Pittsburgh, Pa, and took it with me to McPherson College Auto Restoration Program in which I was enrolled. In 2005 it was sent out to Waco Davis Restorations in Hutchinson, Kansas for a complete restoration and returned to me in July 2016. It was restored back to original as my grandfather had ordered it from the factory.
This car is the direct link I have to my grandfather. The steering wheel is unrestored, so every time I drive it his fingerprints touch mine. My wife and two children enjoy Sunday Cruises in Ralph, and we always get honks and waves form everyone. This family heirloom has a special place in our family where it will remain forever.
