Highland Green GT/CS

Location: Spokane, WA
Price: $35,000/offer

This awesome Highland Green GT/CS was restored by franklinair (Neil) and ATMoses (Arlie). Arlie started the car making many improvements and circumstances necessitated he send the car to Neil for finishing. Neil completed the car in 2017 and I purchased it from him in the spring of 2017. My wife and my plans have taken another direction with increased RV travel and we find we are not using our car like it deserves. Thus I’m putting it up for sale today.

The car is a complete turn key cruise and show beauty. All mechanical functions as it should and it is very dependable. Runs cool even with the A/C running. The only issue I know of is a slight coolant leak that I have not been able to track down. Very slight!

Please see the list of features that this beauty has. I only listed this improvements made by Neil and myself not all the work Arlie put into it. I do have a list of Arlie’s work available for review. I didn’t include it as Arlie’s work was 2013 ish and Neil’s was 2016 ish. I’m no mechanic so my work was done by a local professional mechanic who not only owns a quality shop but is a classic Mustang owner himself. His shop is: Freds Automotive, Clayton WA should you want to check him out.

I have a file full of receipts dating back several years.
