Vehicle is a 1967 Ford Mustang. I start this inspection off with the exterior of the vehicle. The front bumper has some surface rust. There is a painted trim piece behind the bumper that has prior rust under the paint. The right headlight trim ring is loose. The right front fender is misaligned with the hood and door. The right door has some rust at the bottom corner near the fender, and is misaligned with the .25 panel. The right rear .25 has a scratch on it. The trunk has rust bubbles on the back edge, and is misaligned within the quarter panels. The roof has filler throughout, and rust along the drip edge. The left rear .25 has light scratches. The left door has filler, and some rust at the bottom edge near the fender. The left front fender is misaligned with the door. Both A pillar window chrome trim is bubbling along with the .25 glass trim. The entire vehicle is been resprayed and is a good job overall. There is some dirt in the paint here and there. I found most filler work to be on the roof. There is some rust within the door jambs on both sides. All tires are dry rotted, and the left rear wheel rim is bent.

Moving to the interior. The horn, radio, and parking brake are inoperable. The left rear window is inoperable. Both door windows are difficult to operate. The left rear passenger seat belt is torn. The gauge cluster trim to center vent trim is misaligned. The carpet is faded, and there is a tear on the driver side foot area that is sewn up. The AC works. All gauges work. The glove box lock is a little sticky. There are no floor mats present. The manual choke works.

Next is the engine bay. I check all serviceable fluids and they're at their proper levels and clean. I check for leaks and I find gas puddled on the intake manifold under the carburetor. All belts, hoses, and clamps look good. There is also oil residue on the back of the right valve cover. Most everything appears to be stock aside from the carb, cam, and exhaust. I check for rust in the engine bay and there is none. I check for leaks and rust on the undercarriage and there is none. All suspension and brake components look to be in good condition.

Lastly, the test drive. Starting the vehicle takes a couple tries. You have to keep the revs up until there is some heat built up for a couple of minutes until it will hold a steady and smooth idle. On start up there is blue and black smoke. The choke does work, but still needs to be finessed. The motor does sound healthy once idling on its own. The car goes into each gear just fine and goes through the gears smoothly. The brakes do not work well at all. They went to the floor and the car could barely hold a stop while in drive. This will require further diagnosis. The ride feels good, and the steering is tight. The suspension is fine and there are no odd or unusual noises and no vibration. See below for information and pictures.
