In 2004 it was purchased off of eBay, and subsequently resold a few months later.

Thanks Royce! I don’t get over to MC.net very often anymore.

That is 9F91M578411.

It changed hands a few times in 2015 / 2016, until Ron bought it at the tail end of 2016.

Here is a “before” video from when Mustang Beginnings listed it in Sept 2015.
