Little Blue Pill

Coming to the end of this two year project. This is a 1995 Ford Mustang Gt. This original rare color is called Sapphire Blue Metallic. Ford used this color one year only. Two thousand five hundred and eighty four mustangs were painted this color. Those vehicles include, Convertibles, Coups and Cobras. In addition 1995 year was the last year for the 302 (5.0) liter engine in the mustangs. Though not a Holy Grail car, Still a unique build. When I took possession of the Gt it was in poor shape, No Seats, Dash out and damaged. Carpet shot. It looked like the battery had exploded and the entire drivers side engine bay was rusted and pitted. The trunk was broken into and the metal was pretty bent. The frame and undercarriage were in very good shape. Though it would require a lot of time and money i did not have the heart to junk it. The engine bay was stripped and rust removed. All metal was cleaned, neutralized and sealed. Engine fully rebuilt, Heads cut new valves. Water pump, Timing chain and gears, camshaft ( Ecam). interior was redone, New old stock dash, 03 Mach one seats. New carpet. Gauge clusters restored. Console restored. Recovered the headliner. New windshield. Thirteen inch Cobra brakes were fitted to the front. Eibach suspension and UPR components finished up the ride. A lot of labor and love went into this car from the entire crew. Look for it at the shows in spring.
