1972 Mustang Coupe
Mom was the original owner of this unmolested 1972 Mustang Coupe. It has the original paint, original vinyl top, original rims and still has the original interior. It was garage-kept in California until I bought it from her in May 2013. It has accumulated 109K miles over 41 years. I have all the service records since it came out of warranty.

Hey fellow coupe owner! Always nice to see some coupe love in a world of mostly FB's and verts. Great story too! Always nice to see a car that's been in the same family since new! Good luck with it!

I'll second Obsidian's comments. That's a beautiful coupe but I'm kind of partial. Beautiful car.

Fantastic looking car. I like the yellow and white interior. Very nice. Did she order it like that or was it one of the ones that was readily available on the lot?

Thanks for all the comments! Yes, my Mom ordered the car. She basically built a Grandé without the power windows, and kept the running horse emblems on the roof-side. This was her car, her first car...nobody drove it, except Mom & Dad. Later, when it was out of warranty, my brother, who had a shop, became the only mechanic to touch the car. He did all the maintenance. He tried to sell the car for her starting in 2007, and it was ended up being tucked away (yes, in a barn!). We bought it from her in May, and had it shipped from California to Florida. I just went to NPD in Ocala, and bought grille, front bumper, battery and a TMI upholstery set. Going to start under hood clean-up and repainting, and replace grille and bumper. Probably going to have a shop do the seats...I'm still hesitant on that...I noticed the TMI covers do not have the same stitching on the back of the front seat backs as the original. The TMI covers have piping where the original have double rows of stitching coming from the top-corner to inside the back-cover. I only have the "wallet tear" down on the side of drivers seat side. Might see if just the two panels can be replaced.
