And only $27,000

Down at Galpin in the GAS showroom, they have 5 lined up and 2 in the bays. Probably getting superchargers. A security guy walking around started talking to me, so I asked him how many of the Iacocca Mustangs they had there (meaning in back, in storage, whatever - more than the ones in front of us) The security guy looks at me and says "We have 3 I think (I am looking at 5 and saw 2 more walking into the showroom) and they are really reasonably priced - only $27,000"

I said "thank you" and kept walking - what a moron. LOL - the $27,000 was the Ford base sticker for a base stock 2009 Mustang GT.

They are okay in person. I wouldn't drop $90k for one. Even if I had $90k.

The first picture looks like its nose-diving from hard braking, but I still love it!

Take away the wheels and lowered stance and it's..........plain? Something is wrong with the rear. It's almost there for me.....but not quite.

There is one of those at Galpin in Woodland hills. I took a walk all around it. All the ponys are have been replaced with an "I" Wheel caps, steering wheel center. It is a unique style.

I think it's the fact that the rear cuts off at the tail lamps vs our cars the rear sticks out a little more.

If you take the wheels and lowered stance, the front bumper is still sick, and the rear side windows replaced for sheet metal is nice as well... anyways, just a dream since I'll never be able to afford one!

Great photos TN. Man that thing is gorgeous.

There was an interesting article in last month's Mustan Monthly. There was a large photo of it on Lee Iaccoca's driveway, along with his red '65 vert. It was one of the best images I've seen of the car. MM don't have it on their website though.
