My Mustang has been stolen! Information requested.
- STOLEN from Benton Arkansas: 1972 Fastback Mustang, VIN #:
Last tags on car: PDP 679. Car is faded red in color with two black
stripes on ram air hood. All 4 wheel wells had been cut out for 10"
wide Cragar SS wheels (the fenders were cut by an air chisel as a
temporary modification until fender flares could be installed. The
stock 9" rear end had been removed to be strengthened and converted
to disc breaks. The car has a white interior, but the seats and
headliner fabric has been removed in preparation for a roll cage.
The interior has factory Mach 1 gage pod with mechanical gages and a
custom tac installed in dash which was made to look factory. The car
has some rust and a small dent on driver's rear quarter where the
bumper was pushed in 1". The Mustang has a good running Cadillac 500
engine and TH400 engine. The front spindles had been upgraded to
Cadillac commercial chassis with 12" rotors and 5 on 5" bolt
pattern. The Mustang has no exhaust system, the standard fastback
grille, and has the Mach 1 honey comb pattern rear trim. It does not
have Mach 1 stripes. It does have the Mach 1 rubber bumper, but also
has chrome trim on the front of the hood and front finders. There is
no front spoiler. The rear deck lid and quarter panel area has a 70s
Camaro tail fin molded into the bodywork. The gas tank had been
removed for replacement.
This Hot Rod (under construction) is no junk car, and has very
little rust. I have been its owner for 20 years. I was told on
Thursday 3-20-08 that the car was still in storage at the same
location it has been in for the past 10 years and that it was still
in the condition that I left it. When I arrived at the location in
Benton, Arkansas on Saturday 3-22-08 the car was gone. From the look
of the ground that used to be covered by the car, it has been gone
at least a year. The Benton city police will NOT list the car as
stolen because of the length of time it has been at the man's house.
Even IF a salvage company or recycler hauled of this car (as was
claimed), it would not have been crushed . It is somewhere waiting
to be restored or turned into a race car . Please email me with any
information about this car to: MissingMustang@...
Any information would be greatly appreciated,
