An R.V. Cam.
Original with 170,000 Miles on it.
I loaned my mother the $500 down payment to buy the car at a “Spring Fling” sale at Jones-Minto Ford in 1968. For the car’s 40th birthday, I had the Restomod Shop in Stockton do a restoration including the original color (no color code car). The papaya color is very rare.
Mom loaned me the car so I could drive to Isla Vista and move a friend back to San Francisco after college at U.C. Santa Barbara. There were 4 of us and a small U-Haul trailer cruising up Highway 101 when on a downhill, there was an accident ahead, a lane closure and I had to stop – but it wouldn’t stop! I pumped and pumped but she would not stop! Those brakes just faded away! Luckily, we got through the worst of it but we were damn scared! That day I knew disc brakes were in the car’s future. Best thing I ever did.
Looking forward to participating in the 500 car caravan of Mustangs Across America drive to Birmingham, AL in April, 2009 to celebrate the 45th Mustang Anniversary Celebration at the Barber Motorsports Park. We will then take Route 66 back from Chicago. 45 years – truly an American experience.
