    Newbie, on the verge of purchasing

    Evening all, Dale here. New to the forum and wanted to introduce myself. So I've always wanted a mustang and the opportunity to get one is now in my hands.....

    So I currently live in Canada (Based here for 2 years) I am due to return in July 2019 so I'm looking at getting one out here. They are readily available and from what I can work out, a lot less money.

    Shipping one back won't cost me anything, I get to ship 2 cars back at no cost at the end of my time.

    So to that end, I've researched as much as possible: I want a 1st generation in as good condition as possible.

    I've narrowed it down to 2 which I will view Friday.

    1. 1967 Ford mustang Coupe, original 289 2 barrel, all original with matching numbers. Minor work required (new radiator and minor rust on put wheel wells) 83,000km. https://www.kijiji.ca/v-view-details...dId=1373179512

    2. 1971 Ford Mustang Fastback, original 351 cleavland, upgraded to 4 barrel. Everything else stock. Minor rust on put wheel wells again. 189,000km. Original paint.
    https://www.kijiji.ca/v-view-details...dId=1375026342

    Fingers crossed these are good, I've got the prices down to around the 6000 already. Seen them both running from videos etc. Both been owned by current owner for over 20 years.

    Any advice or thoughts welcome!

    Hope to talk more.
