You’ve always wanted a Mustang and finally your dreams have come true. But it needs work and you wonder what was standard equipment for the car and what were options.  You want everything but you have a budget and you want the parts that are the most affordable.  You know that the major Mustang suppliers have every part you could imagine but it would help to know what the original manufacturers suggested retail price was.

I went through this with my 64 1/2 convertible but that was when you could get the original parts which isn’t necessarily the case now days.  So I thought it would be useful to list all the parts that were originally available that I know of.  And when I know the original manufacturers price I list that too. That might help you decide which parts were expensive then that might be out of your range now.
