Freshly restored Ford Mustang offered by Game of Thrones actor Charles Dance will be sold at CCA’s December sale
A convertible Ford Mustang, driven daily by British actor Charles Dance, is set to be auctioned by the Game of Thrones actor at Classic Car Auctions’ next sale on 8 December. Used regularly by the actor since he bought the car in 2002, it has recently been the subject of a full restoration, and is expected to sell for £25,000-£30,000.
The restoration of the 1967 V8-engined model was carried out by specialist Phil King of Classic American Restoration Services, where the Mustang received a lot of new parts. The car was stripped down to bare metal, with new floorpans and rear wings welded in, before being treated to a full respray. The decision was taken to fit a fully-rebuilt 289ci V8 engine, as well as a fully rebuilt braking system as well as many other new items.
Since the work was completed back in August, the Mustang has barely been used. A trip to the MoT station, where it passed, is the only time that it has been taken out on the road, meaning it is offered in ‘out of the box’ condition.
CCA general manager, Guy Lees-Milne commented: ‘We’re privileged to be able to offer this car and sell it on behalf of Charles. This is a beautiful example of the iconic Ford Mustang, and combined with its celebrity connections we expect a lot of interest. This is the ideal car not just for Mustang fans but for Game of Thrones obsessives around the world. Just imagine driving the car once owned by Tywin Lannister!’
