I hope I don't get banned for posting a Mustang II, but this '77 Ghia was purchased new by a couple; we purchased it from them last year. The gentleman's wife drove it up until about 1 1/2 years ago when she said she finally wanted something with power steering. It is all original and was always garaged. Has just under 47k miles.
Nice, my Favorite color!

If you put something together, we'll definitely get it up there for all to enjoy.

That is a beautiful Mustang! I cut my stick-shifting teeth on a Mustang II T-top hatch with a 6 cyl/4spd owned by my sister's in-laws. I had first dibs on it if the car ever went up for sale, but they sold it to someone else.

Thanks Bobby! It is essentially just how it was when taken out of service. According to the door label, the car was originally black (1C). You can see where it was taped off in places when NYPD had it painted blue and white. They did go ahead and paint inside the door jams, but they simply taped it off on the door panels. You can still see where the tape line wasn't very straight.

If jams look ok I'd leave them just as they are

That I am unsure of. He did throw in a PA300, Federal switchbox, and a handheld K-15 radar. I don't know if any of these items were originally used by NYPD in the car though.

As someone that grew up in NYC, that car is legendary in NY. That car was frequently parked on an entrance ramp to the Clearview Expressway in Bayside, NY. The Clearview is a straight and flat highway that begged to go fast on. I remember it literally laying in the weeds waiting to nab speeders. Everyone knew to go the speed limit on that stretch.
