This car 4 days before the video was taken was in a backyard in Arizona for 30 years. It was for sale on CRAIGSLIST!!!! and this guy bought it, fresh gas and showed up at the cruise in Scottsdale, AZ off of Indian Head Rd. 1961 Ford Starliner that someone had stuffed in a 427 cammer motor. Open headers, sounds even better in person.

Real Barn Find 1965 Mustang Fastback A/FX Gasser Viral
I put the word viral to gain views,,,,HEAR THE CAR RUN @ 2:40 This x drag
race car was snug for 32 years in the basement of a farm house outside of
Albany. A close friend and track official at Lebanon Valley dragstrip told
me about this car at the end of the 2011 season. So I went to see it. I
bought it instantly. I have been slowly making the car useable since I
bought it. The body and frame of the car have never seen the salt and it
has been a race car since it was new. The rear tubbing and body
work/engineering for the front leaf springs were all done in the 60's. It
saw heavy track time from 1967-77 but has been sitting un-raced since. I
would love to know the actual mileage on this car, i'm sure it would be low
and in increments of 1/4 mile :)

the car soon became tarnished by a massive road toll in the 1950s and 60s
and the designed in faults and dangers that were killing and injuring

70s brought huge changes to the way automakers and governments thought
about car safety and it is now a huge part of automotive engineering
design. This episode also looks at some famous and infamous cars (the Mini,
