Needs Paint: 1969 Ford Mustang GT Convertible

I don’t want to suggest that anyone should take advantage of a seller, but this next car is potentially a smokin’ good deal for a number of reasons…and that is indeed the point of DailyTurismo, right? Anyway, it listed as a 1971 Mustang when it is clearly a 1969 Mustang. Next, it is GT and has the 351W V8 that looks mostly original. The only thing seriously wrong with the car is that it has been given a poor multi-stage paint job that is now flaking off. Fix the paint with a proper single stage job, do some basic maintenance, and you’ve got yourself a nice classic for a song/dance. Find this 1969 Ford Mustang Convertible offered for $10,000 in Concord, CA via craigslist.
