Something different than the usual.

The car was bought from Roy Hommes in the Mustang workshop in the Uk.
Mustang Workshop | Servicing, upgrades & award winning concourse restorations

The shell had previously been restored in holland by a company called barts (Suppose ta be 1 of the top 5 restoration companys in the world)
bartholland.com

I have since been on to them 2 try and get pics and info on it before it was painted but as i was not da customer that got it done they will tell me nothing.(Go down through da bart link and u will c some pics of it been restored)16th row down.

It was then finished and re-assembled by roy in da mustang workshop.I have folders full of invoices and a list of every part that was put into it during the restoration process.

I got the car in April 2007, and at that time the only part that had not been overhauled at that time was the engine.
So i decided to finish the whole project off once and for all, so i made the decision to install a brand new crate engine that you could just buy of many companies in the states.

Lovely car, you must be chuffed with it.

I have some lightweight Mustang wheels sitting in my shed, not used them in 30 years if they would be of any interest to you?

Cheers
