This month took B&T Garage/BTG Media out Terrell, TX for the monthly NTFC meet. Crown Custom Hot Rods was gracious enough to allow us to tour their shop and utilize their parking lot.
The meet started out with a meeting location at the Summit warehouse in Arlington, TX. We gathered there and cruised as a small group out to Terrell for the meet. I was able to capture a couple roller shots on the way.
Once we arrived at Crown Custom Hot Rods we gathered as usual and had a great time. It’s hard to beat like-minded people, a great shop location, beverages, pizzas and of course awesome Mustangs!
The gathering lasted about 3 hours and then we all headed on our separate ways. We, of course, had to take some roller shots on our way home!
If you’re in North Texas and own a Foxbody Mustang, you should really look us up! We’d love to have you join and be a part of the best Foxbody club in Texas!
The last couple of months have been pretty challenging. A bathroom remodel that’s been going on for way to long, the awesome Project 64.5, a massive job role change at work and a new role within the North Texas Foxbody Club.
Like most members of the group, I post numerous photos of my own Fox as well as meet photos. There are many fantastic photographers within the club. So, I was honored when I was asked to be the official videographer/photographer for the North Texas Foxbody Club! What a great to opportunity to highlight the club and members while shooting photos of what we all enjoy, automobiles, Mustangs, and most importantly Foxbodies!
After 12 months of the semi-flat metallic red, it was time to remove the dipyourcar.com Plastidip. The product is great and help up superbly, but needed to come off. I had a couple spots where I applied it incorrectly, runs, and a spot by the mirrors where is appeared some one peeled it. Possibly while at TMI or a parking lot some where?
Removing the dip wasn’t very hard but was time consuming. I need to determine what to do next, paint or more time. I have some time to fix some door dings and other dents before I do that.
Yup, the 64.5 project, Elyses car, is for sure a 65 Mustang considered a 64.5. This car is number 1,502 out of 9 million plus Mustangs and one of the first Mustangs made. It was made on 3/17/1964, production started on 3/9/1964, and we think it may actually be one of the first Mustangs ever sold!
Gale Wise is considered by Ford as owner of the first Mustang ever sold to an individual. That Mustang was sold two days before it should have been sold. The car was purchased by Gale on 4/15/1964, but the Mustang wasn’t even unveiled at the Worlds Fair until 4/17/1964, which is when it should have gone on sale.
The Ford Owner Warranty Card of Elyses car is listed with a date of 4/15/1964. Is it possible that this car was sold on the same day as Gales car?
More to come soon!
Update: Found the original owner and the car was indeed bought on 4/15/1964. Not one but two! More to come.
