1 of 189 68 Fastback Mustangs with an X-code 390/2V engine
Roy from American Horse Power/NL heard of this car in 2003 in Oklahoma, while being with a friend at a small restaurant sitting at the bar. They both were talking about Mustangs, while his neighbour suddenly interrupted and asked them about their interest, soon mentioning a Mustang in a barn nearby. Too good to be true these years, but small talk continued and the guy left a telephone number to Roys friend with a telephone number. Soon after they were calling the other guy - a banker - and it appeared, yes there was a Mustang in a barn 80 miles away. Why not have a look at it, as it might be for sale.
Roy and his friend jumped into their car and went the extra mile to have a look. Entering the barn they were confronted with a true nice Thunderbird. Oh, no that is not a Mustang.
Sure, the owner said the Mustang is over there in a
dark corner. What a mess in the dark, thought Roy, but then walked over to put
a finger on the 1" dust, rubbing it away. Jeez, a really good white
glossy paint turned up. Roy was alerted and walked around, then found the
X-code in the VIN. No way, Roy never heard of an X-code, must be wrong car,
wrong engine. But the banker went off to pick up a book to confirm the owners
statement of an all original car.
Another few trials, then suddenly it awoke and Roy
was paralized by the smooth engine running with a deep burble.
