Does it get any cooler than a red Mustang?

Doug Kiehn sure didn’t think so when he was cruising around Charlotte as a young man in a 1965 Mustang convertible at the height of the muscle car explosion across the United States.

Dave and Amie’s budget was $25,000, which priced them out of a 1965 convertible, but they found 1967 coupe in their range.

The car’s engine ran, but a rusty floor was discovered during the restoration and needed to be replaced. It’s a common issue with the model, but one that could be addressed along with a new interior and paint job.

The Kiehns picked an exciting place to give the car to their dad.
