Ford Mustang 1990 Description

This is a tasteful resto-mod car. It is about 90-95% complete. The vision behind this build was if Ford continued the 69 Boss 302 theme into the Fox Body era. Therefore, the car has the Ford Grabber Blue paint color, which changes shades depending on lighting, with black accents from the molding, side mirrors, and hood design similar to the 1969 Boss 302.
The car was built with reliability as well as fun in mind at a repair shop I managed. I have literally hundreds of pictures and receipts for the process. There was about $18-20k invested in this project. Basically, everything is new! So why am I selling it? It's not easy, but I'm selling it because I have Lyme disease and can no longer maintain hobbies such as this. It's simply too much for me.
