I have decided to sell my dream car, because I am moving out of California to start dental school and I could use the money for the next few years ahead of me. After some experience, I know now that it is too difficult to own a project car while being a full-time student. Plus I would hate to eventually bring this car onto the snowy roads of Utah.

This car has been my daily driver since 2017, after getting rid of my first car. The car and I live in Davis, CA now and it takes me to work Monday thru Friday in the Yolo County area. Most miles driven are highway and farm roads/backroads. I drive the car back to the Bay Area regularly to visit family and friends.

I am the 4th owner of this 1970 Mustang, bought in 2015 in San Jose. The original engine was an in-line 6 cylinder. I swapped that out for a 351 Windsor engine and C-6 automatic transmission from an abandoned '69 Mercury Cougar in Santa Rosa. Both the engine and transmission were rebuilt prior to installation. Two-Barrel Carburetor has been rebuilt as well.

Other additions include New: Power Steering, Disc Brakes in the front, Radiator, Starter, Heater Core. Restoration completed in 2016. Approx. 12,000 miles on rebuild, About 129,000 on chassis.

Other Features:
- Custom Burgundy paint job - by previous owner (roughly 12 years old)
- Zenith Wheels (fair - poor condition) - by previous owner
- Interior in GREAT condition
- Leather Seats
- New Carpet - by previous owner (2013)
- New Tires (2018)
- Working Heater/Defroster
- Original Custom Vinyl Top (fair condition - some flaking due to years of weather wear)
- Flowmaster Dual Exhaust

- Aftermarket Sony stereo w/ AUX*
- 10" Subwoofer*
*Currently not functional due to shortage in wiring. Mechanic recommended wiring upgrade.

My Upgrade To-Do list include (If I keep the car longer):
- Wiring to fix stereo issue, original Dashboard lighting, and Cabin Light
- Suspension
- Weather stripping
- Eventually New Rims (Preferably muscle car style)

More Pictures coming soon. Message and I can send them directly.

$18,000 OBO. Please serious buyers only.
