The Grape Ape

The Grape Ape

It’s a 1967 Ford Mustang Hard Top. I’ve had this car since right before I joined the Marine Corps. The Color is the result of another fellow Marine that threatened to shoot me if I painted it Royal Purple. The engine is a 302 with a high volume oil pump, variable lifters, 2 barrel carb and 15 inch rims. The two pictures are in The Grape Ape’s home in La Puente, Ca. The other picture is of me and The Ape is Sept of last year right after a Commanding General’s Service Alpha inspection.
