Welcome to another Hooniverse Weekend Edition, and this weekend will be an abbreviated edition, as I’m going to be on a plane all day Sunday to get to Indianapolis for the NTEA Work Truck Show that I will be covering next week. In the meantime, we have some great tips to get to, like this one sent in by long time Hoon Muthalovin (Thanks Man!). It is a Craigslist listing on a ultra clean base Mustang Fastback, and it was intended for Fastback Friday, but let’s show it now.
This car is based in Georgetown TX, and it looks to be in great condition. According to the listing:
~118,000 miles. Engine/Transmission have 2,500 miles. Original 302 V8 with Edelbrock 600 4bbl carb, Edelbrock intake, headers, original automatic transmission. Major servicing 2,500 miles / 3 years ago: engine and transmission rebuilt, fuel system, fuel tank fully serviced, brake system fully serviced, coolant system fully serviced. New radiator, water pump, fuel pump, more.
Power steering, disc front brakes, drum rear brakes. Color is Grabber Green and in good shape except on the C-pillars. Both were damaged by a poor quality car cover. Paint scheme is custom, with touches from both the MACH I and BOSS 302 schemes.
3rd owner – family friend bought the car new in 1969. Texas car, straight body, no rust, no accidents. Great chrome bumpers, Cragar “Keystone” wheels. Aftermarket rear louvers. Original bucket seats, separate lap/shoulder belts. Front seats are torn in a few places. This car is NOT a MACH I or BOSS 302; it is a base fastback/sports roof.
Asking price on this car is $17,900 which seems a little steep, but maybe you may not think so. See the Craigslist listing here.
