    Comments: I believe this is a 1980; running the license plate on various license plate check web sites returns "not a valid license plate" but trying the plate on the St of NC personalized plate request returns "number already in use"; which leads me to believe this has an 11 digit VIN rather than a 17 digit VIN, which would explain why license plate check web sites come back as not valid

    That was fun...and also a little it depressing. I remember looking at one of these brand new in late 1979, but it wasn't to be. I came close a couple of times, but missed the boat. Who knows...maybe another will show its face someday.

    Tried to edit the original post to add another carriage roof Mustang, but original content would not populate to allow me to edit and insert another entry. So, I will just post additional info in one-off posts as they come in.

    Comments: A friend directed me to this FB post, and I was able to negotiate to purchase the car. Picked it up today. It is a Ghia.

    The plan is to store it for a few months to finish up a couple of other projects and accumulate parts, and then get started on the restoration. It is nearly identical to the 1981 carriage roof Mustang that my dad purchased brand new, except this one has the 6cyl engine (rather than the 4cyl), and this one does not have cruise control; but identical in all other respects. Looking forward to restoring this one!
