69 XR7 White/Blue interior AC car, Disk brakes, in very nice shape needs a few things to be ready to sell...

That makes 3 Cougars, 1 mustang, 1 Supra...plus everyday drivers...getting crowded at the house..

LOL....First thing I did was to turn the rocker trim around!!!

Here is the engine...Needs a good cleaning and replace some missing parts and some incorrect parts...351W 2V 2BBl carb...



Took out the interior to change it over to Black...New seat covers... the rest is being cleaned, scrubbed and dyed in SEM gloss black...Body is in excellent shape...

Really your gonna dye the blue? The white with blue is a nice color combo. White with black is really run of the mill/ordinary.Just my 2 cents

If the Blue would have been correct I would have kept it that way but The Blue was the wrong color it was not the dark blue but a light mustang blue anyway...Oh I like Blue Jessica is Blue on Blue....the black seat covers are cheaper and in stock with John's... happened to have a new black carpet in the attic, plus lots of extra black parts sunvisors kick panels arm rests made the switch easier...finding blue parts are harder and the paint dye doesnt always come out so good...

The car is being built to sell so probably eaiser to sell this way...just my opinion also...

Stripes and scoop done...... interior is almost finshed and engine is detailed........ just a few more odds and end to finish up...
