Congrats to MikeRadMan for MOTM Work in Progress... |
I purchased the car in 1997 after attending the Bob Bondurant School of High Performance Driving. I came home looking for a Fox body when I ran across my Mach 1. After making a deal the seller gave me a quarter panel and the rear window louvers. After he handed me the louvers he said that they have a special story. So I asked to hear it. This is what he said: "Back in 1969 he and his buddy purchased 1970 Mach 1's, however before they could take delivery of those Mach 1s military service called them to Vietnam. The Buddy never made it home. Fast forward to the late 1980's my seller buys my Mach1. The buddy's Mom passes away and the family is cleaning out the garage and finds these louvers, They know that my seller just purchased another Mach 1 and gives him the louvers." The reason why my seller never got to install the louvers is that he wanted to restore the car but he had to sell it because his wife was sick and they needed the money. So this is what the car looked like when I purchased it:
I had fun with it going to cruise nights and small shows. I even managed to go the 35th Annual MCA show in South Carolina:
However, the weekend after I got the car, I had an accident that involved 2 other cars besides mine. This is a picture from the morning after:
Now after a long wait the car is waiting for brakes, rims, tires, engine, transmission, wiring, interior etc...
But before those items, life is stepping in as I am purchasing a house.
I want to thank everyone for voting for me and I look forward to finishing the car.

Thanks to all those that voted, 6 votes was the difference between 1st and 2nd this month. |
The winner of the 94-98 is 96Tangstangvert
First I would like to thank everyone that voted for the Tangerine Stang and the other great looking Mustangs that were here.
Just a quick history on the car. I purchased the car last year and was delivered from Harmony, PA on Super bowl Sunday. I had already been waiting a few weeks for paperwork to be squared away, scheduling the delivery and hoping it didn’t snow on the delivery date. It then was delivered straight to the upholsterer for the new top. Then off to storage till spring.
I actually had a chance to email the original owner of the car (who happened to own a Ford Dealership in PA) and these are his words. “
I bought your Mustang on January 2 of 1996 as a private Ford Dealers only Auction. The Mustang was a Ford Factory Test Car which explains the odd color combination and options’: an Immersion block heater but no rear defroster. The color combination when I did my research with the white top and interior makes it very rare (less than 100 to the best I could tell). As a Test car this was used for research prior to 1996 and was labeled as such. I bought it with a couple thousand miles on it was always stored inside and serviced and maintained by my store when I had it. I kept this car for about 4 to 5 years until my divorce settlement. After I gave the car to my ex she used it more as an everyday car in the summer until she traded it in. When I transferred it to her I believe there was somewhere under 20,000 miles.”
The next owner happened to be a technician at the dealership that the car was traded in at. He had the car for around 4 years or so putting only 800-1000 miles on it. The car mainly sat in his garage. He decided that since he wasn’t really driving it that someone should get some joy out of having this car and to free up his garage and some extra cash in his pocket. So this is how I acquired the Stang.
As far as I know there were 829 Tangerine Mustangs only made in the GT models. (Then it breaks down with coupe or convertible with color options for the interior, top, wheel size, etc). I was told by another Tangerine owner that he believes the car I have is 1 of 27(but I have no way to actually prove that) since this was a test vehicle and having an immersion block heater.
The car is still sporting the white painted marks, even the original shocks are still on the car.
At this point I want to keep it fairly stock. Only future mod at this point that I want to do is add a white styling bar.
