While to you and I Frank's Mustang looks every bit show ready, Frank is keen to point out that he's planning on "bringing the car back to full show condition." He's also planning on customizing the interior, re-trimming the trunk and fitting a more modern and extensive audio system.

Whatever the case, this sweet 'Stang has enjoyed a pretty amazing journey already. Luckily for this car, it looks like its future is safe with the Kolarik family, too. No parts hauling or soccer practice runs on the horizon for this classic.

Frank's GT is really a well restored example of a rare roofless 'Stang--not a hugely modified custom. This is evident in the cabin where you'll find a largely factory-style interior; albeit an immaculate factory interior that has been accentuated by a color-matched rollbar and blood red carpets.
