Winter is soon upon us in this part of the country, so here are a few possibilities for you to work on to pass the time in your garage on those cold nights!

'66 GT350 4 speed
A California car sold new at Hayward Ford. Factory color was Ivy Green with white Lemans stripes. Came east and has spent the last 20 years in storage. Restoration started with professional rebuild/assembly of the original matching number engine, installation of all new brake system and various other work. A very complete and correct example. $93,500
'67 GT500 4 speed
Another California Hayward Ford Shelby that was never more than 100 miles from San Jose until I brought it east. Factory Nightmist Blue with black interior, center grille lights, wheel covers. Same owner last 40 years. Partially disassembled for restoration, very complete including redone BJ/BK carbs and the original CA emission system. All tags and numbers intact, even has the Ford door warranty tag that was usually removed by Shelby. This is the color and equipment everyone wants! $98,500
'68 1/2 Mustang GT CJ coupe
A very unusual example with only 221 built, this is one of 3 painted Clearwater Aqua. A factory GT "R" code car equipped with black vinyl top and interior, automatic trans, power steering and brakes, and tilt wheel. Original matching number engine and driveline. Runs but has been off the road since the 1980's. Proper inside storage kept the body generally solid. $29,500

Bill's Back Lot
Bill's Back Lot

If you're a certain age, your automotive dreams of years ago seemed closer to reality if you wandered onto a car dealer's "back row" or "back lot". This is where the "transportation specials" resided, along with trade ins waiting for the wholesaler or the auction. After the 1973 oil embargo, such places were full of cast off '60's muscle cars. Many of today's enthusiasts cut their automotive teeth on these refugees.

So, in homage to these automotive shrines of my youth, I offer "Bill's Back Lot".

Regular Mustangs, low end drivers, projects, the unusual and some just plain junk! You'll find it all here!
