Dark Charcoal Metallic (9W), Gray cloth interior, slapper bar rear axle, manual windows , manual locks, no a/c, rear window defroster, am/fm cassette, cloth seats with piping on edges, and dealer installed cruise control. The car retains many of its original parts - Konis , steering wheel and horn pad, shift knob, taillights, front marker lights, SVO lug nuts, radio.
The car was sold new in the Seattle area. It was brought to the New Orleans area in the late 80s. The second owner purchased the car in 1990 and used it as a weekend car for 2 years before putting on the car on jack stands in his shop. I purchased the car in March 2009 and completed the restoration in March 2010.
Drivetrain - Original 89K mile motor. No modifications. Hoses, clamps, markings are as Ford put them there. Battery cables are aftermarket.
Transmission - Original T-5 with factory shifter.
Brakes - New Rotors, calipers, hoses, pads, etc
Tires - New Goodyear Eagle GTs
Exhaust - Replaced muffler with Dynomax Turbo muffler and dual outlet tip using stock hangers.
Exterior - Base / Clear in original color. No rust ever on the car. All original panels except drivers quarter panel. Another car backed into the quarter panel on the flare area. A Ford quarter panel was put on the car at the factory seams. This was done in 1991. All lights, spoiler, body side moldings, spats, etc are Ford parts and have been restored.
Interior - Original seats, carpet, dash. Replaced headliner with cloth because vinyl was not available. No cracks in dashpad.
