Marc Shiliro's Classic Cars
You're looking at another beautiful classic car listed by MS CLASSIC CARS!
1965 Ford Mustang V8 Coupe - "Samantha"
Hello, I’m Marc Schiliro the owner of MS CLASSIC CARS.  You might recognize my name or my business name from beautiful classic cars, trucks and motorcycles I’ve collected and sold nationally.  I’ve got over 20 years of classic vehicle experience.  I’d like to put that experience to work for you.  I’ve learned a lot and I’m educated in many different makes and models ranging from the early 1900’s to current.  Over the years I’ve collected and sold over 400 classic vehicles which I’m very proud of.  I sell a large percentage of my inventory from networking and from the various websites I advertise on.  I sell a small percentage of my inventory at various auctions such as Barrett Jackson.  I’ve set over 15 world record prices on various makes and models.  I’ve also featured many classic vehicles at different auctions across the United States. I’ve had many vehicles that have been featured in multiple magazines and multiple websites.  I specialize in beautiful classic vehicles that are at a higher level of quality than most being advertised for sale. I collect classic vehicles that are already completed and slightly redesign them, service them and detail them. I have also coordinated restorations from start to finish.
The MS CLASSIC CARS showroom is located in Seekonk, Massachusetts and was established in 2012.  The MS CLASSIC CARS service department and multiple storage facilities are also located in Seekonk, Massachusetts.  The MS CLASSIC CARS operations are closed to the public.  A private viewing of a vehicle can be made scheduled by appointment Monday through Friday.  The MS CLASSIC CARS inventory consists of roughly 40 classic cars and trucks that we own, service and detail.  We’re one of the only dealerships who document the service work we do to every vehicle with an invoice.  Each vehicle is presented with detailed descriptions and multiple photos.  We offer no consignment inventory.  When you call you deal directly with me. I know each vehicle well and will go over the vehicle of your interest in full detail.  I’ll also assist you with any other needs such as trades, financing, insurance or shipping.  I promise to make the process from start to finish easy and enjoyable.  I take a lot of pride in my business and my reputation reflects that.  I appreciate the opportunity to earn your business.  “MS CLASSIC CARS isn’t just another dealer.  MS CLASSIC CARS is a brand.”

I've been collecting classic cars and trucks for over 15 years now and have seen a lot happen. I've seen the hobby continue to grow not only on the internet and auctions but also with the amount of television shows, magazines and websites that are related to classic cars in some form or another. I strongly believe the classic car market is a great place to invest in. When the economy is strong, the classic car market is extremely strong. When the economy isn't so strong the classic car market holds its own. I've sold classic cars and trucks in both economic conditions. The reason classic cars make such a great investment is because people are crazy about cars, especially classic cars.  These people aren’t just one age group but all different ages ranging from very young to very old.  It’s a much diversified market.  I've learned it's not just people in the United States but its people all over the world.  Roughly 20% of my sales are from people who live outside of the United States.  Some examples would be Canada, Australia, Mexico and Europe.  Also from what I’ve learned roughly 20% of bidders at auctions are also  people who live outside the United States. 

  Over the years I've noticed that the higher quality classic cars have always commanded a higher price. Even people who don't have any classic car experience can recognize and appreciate attention to detail. Over the last 10 years the overall market has been very strong and I believe it will continue to grow.  Certain classic cars prices are on the rise and others are on the decline.  It’s all about supply and demand not about a good or bad economy.  The classic cars that are on the rise are the cars that a lot of people want but there aren’t many on the market for sale.  The classic cars that are on the decline are the cars that a lot of people don’t want anymore and there’s many on the market for sale. Of course, if the car is a rare model and spectacular it will command a higher price as I mentioned. Desirable factory correct classic cars that are documented with matching numbers always make solid investments.  Custom cars have remained strong because each car is different from the next one. They each have their own character and there worth what people are willing to pay.

  Prior to this business I was just a blue collar guy who was working full time selling new and used Mercedes Benz.  I was very passionate about classic cars and trucks so I decided to sell them part time.  Although I had my used car dealer’s license I didn’t have my own dealership.  Overall things were going just fine but my dream was to open my own classic car and truck dealership.  I decided to give up my full time job with health insurance and a 401K to open a new classic and truck dealership.  I had to invest a ton of money to make that happen which required using my family’s savings and acquiring loans such as a home equity line of credit.  I also now would have a lot of overhead that I didn’t have before.  The bottom line is I went all in.  Do you think I would’ve done all that if I didn’t think the classic car and truck market wasn’t going to remain strong?  “I’m putting my money where my mouth is”.

1965 Ford Mustang V8 Coupe – “Samantha”


In memory of Bill Lee Lindsay (Born: October 31, 1945   Died: January 27, 2017)

This beautiful 1965 Ford Mustang V8 Coupe “Samantha” is a wonderful example of a first generation Mustang. The car was nick named “Samantha” by MS CLASSIC CARS owner Marc Schiliro because this is the first car his daughter Samantha learned how to drive. This car has been completely restored to show quality standards throughout. It was completed in 2017 and has 1,410 miles since completion. It’s been finished in its original color of Silver Smoke Gray with a Blue and White Pony interior. It’s equipped with Rally Pac, air conditioning and power steering. The car is powered by a 289 V8 engine and C-4 automatic transmission. This Pony is a very special car for so many reasons as listed below. Enjoy!

As the VIN number and trim tag indicate this car was built on April 26th, 1965 in Dearborn, Michigan with a Dallas, Texas (DSO). It was Silver Smoke Gray with a luxury Blue and White interior. It had a V8 289 CID 4V, C-4 Automatic with a 3.00:1 rear axle. The trim tag is a reproduction tag that was replaced because the original was beat up. From the information gathered the reproduction trim tag is a duplicate of the original. The original VIN stamp is still located on the driver’s side inner fender. Two Kansas Highway Patrol VIN verification reports from 1992 and 2007 are included with the sale. This car was purchased by Bill Lee Lindsay from Wichita, Kansas as a restoration project. Bill was a hard working blue collar guy who wanted to bring this car back to its glory but needed to do it as he could afford to. He worked as an electrical drafter which included doing wiring for military projects. As the receipts indicate the restoration started in 1992. He connected with Kansas Klassics located in Wichita, Kansas. Kansas Klassics specialize in new and used Mustang parts, repairs and restorations. Bill wanted to restore the car as correctly as possible. The restoration went on for many years and came to a halt in or around 2008 because Bill had gotten sick and retired. During the time frame after retirement he couldn’t focus on the restoration. Unfortunately Bill passed on January 27th, 2017. After his passing, his wife Wilgean D. Lindsay decided to complete the restoration. As the receipts document she sent the car back to Kansas Klassics in April of 2017. It was finally completed in July of 2017. She drove the car a total of 1,020 miles mostly to car shows. She won some first and second place awards at car shows which are not included. MS CLASSIC CARS purchased the car from Wilgean in December of 2019. MS CLASSIC CARS serviced and detailed the car shortly after the acquisition. Marc Schiliro the owner of MS CLASSIC CARS decided to bring the car home to enjoy for a while. Marc’s first classic car was a 1965 Ford Mustang V8 Coupe so he has a soft spot for this car. Marc also made the decision to teach his daughter how to drive on this car. Over the course of the spring and summer in 2020 Marc and his family created many memories with this car. On the weekend of September 5th, Marc and Samantha drove in the car back to the dealership so it could be listed for sale. Now you can better understand why this Pony is a very special car.

The exterior of this car presents itself beautifully. The first generation Mustang design is timeless and well recognized around the world. From the information gathered most of the sheet metal was replaced during the restoration. A great deal of time was spent aligning all the sheet metal properly. It has excellent body gaps throughout. The hood, doors and trunk lid close very well. The car was finished in its original color of Silver Smoke Gray which is a rare color. This color has multiple different shades depending on the light that include sliver, gray and blue. The paint is show quality and has been detailed to a brilliant shine. A black pin stripe was applied which adds character. All of the glass is original Ford Car Lite and in very nice condition. All of the stainless glass trim is original and has been restored. Everything on the exterior has been restored or replaced such as the wipers, grille, front bumper, headlight bezels, headlights, emblems, antenna, drivers mirror, door handles, lower molding, gas cap, tail light bezels, lenses and rear bumper. The car sits on steel wheels with the correct spinner hubcaps. The wheels are wrapped with B.F. Goodrich Silverstone 6.95-14 double redline 4-ply tires that were replaced in 2017.

The interior of this car also presents beautifully. It sports the original blue and white color which complements the exterior color perfectly. The Pony interior definitely adds character. The headliner, sun visors, dash pad, door panels, rear panels, carpeting and floor mats are blue. The dash fascia, steering column, center of door panels and center of seats are white. The gauge bezel and glove box are simulated wood. Everything in the interior has been restored or replaced such as the headliner, sun visors, rear view mirror, dash, dash hardware, gauges, AM-radio, Rally Pac, wood steering wheel, shifter, door sills, door panels, door hardware, seats, front seat belts, carpeting and floor mats. The car is equipped with factory air conditioning that was converted to R134. The air conditioning works great and blows cold. The car is also equipped with power steering that was installed by MS CLASSIC CARS. The power steering also works great. Everything in the interior is in working order with exception of the Rally Pac clock and AM-radio. The trunk compartment was nicely restored. It has the factory jack instructions sticker on the back side of the trunk lid. It also has the factory style trunk mat and full size spare tire with jack tools.

The engine compartment is highly detailed throughout with many correct parts. The firewall, inner fenders and radiator support was finished in the correct shade of black. The car is powered by a 289 V8 (A-code) engine that was completely gone through. The engine runs and performs great. The engine is dressed with aluminum Cobra valve covers and air cleaner which look great. MS CLASSIC CARS added a brand new Holley Quick Fuel Carburetor for reliability. The factory air conditioning system is correct. It has Ford stamped hoses and an Autolite battery topper. It also has a battery power cut off knob for storage. The engine is cooled by a factory style radiator with no overheating issues. The engine breathes through factory exhaust manifolds and a Hi-Po dual exhaust system that sounds awesome. The engine is coupled to a C-4 Automatic transmission that shifts very smoothly. The transmission was rebuilt by Certified Specialists in Wichita, Kansas. The power is transferred to the pavement through the Ford 8” POSI rear end. MS CLASSIC CARS rebuilt the rear end and added the POSI unit for extra traction. This car definitely has some get up and go!

The undercarriage is also highly detailed throughout with many correct parts. This undercarriage is nice enough to display with mirrors at a car show. The underside was painted the correct red oxide which looks great. Everything underneath has been restored or replaced such as the fuel tank, steering components, suspension components and braking system.

First generation Mustang V8 Coupes are becoming harder and harder to find especially in the condition of this car. This is a very special car that the new owner will be proud to call their own. A new binder with receipts of the restoration are included with the sale.


***MS CLASSIC CARS purchases beautiful classic vehicles that we’ve serviced and detailed unlike most classic vehicles that are currently being advertised for sale.   This is documented with an invoice pictured below.  Please understand every vehicle needs something.  Some vehicles just need a lot more than others.  At MS CLASSIC CARS we take eliminate the surprises.  We’ll let the photos do the rest of the talking. ***

MS CLASSIC CARS invested a total of servicing this vehicle including the parts and labor.  An invoice is pictured below that documents everything.  MS CLASSIC CARS also invested $600.00 in detailing the vehicle from top to bottom.  

Unfortunately most classic vehicles that are being advertised for sale by dealers, private parties and auctions aren't exactly what are being advertised for sale.  This is an industry with no real guidelines and everyone's opinion is completely different.  The average consumer doesn’t realize classic vehicles weren’t restored at the factory and are being restored by people in their garages.  Everyone’s level of restoration experience is different and it shows in the restoration.  An example would be a classic vehicle that's  being advertised as an original model with matching numbers could be a phony with a reproduction trim tag and re stamped numbers on the engine block, etc.  Another example would be a classic vehicle is being advertised as a full restoration when indeed only a few things have been restored.  There are many classic vehicles listed for sale that have cosmetic and mechanical issues with such items as the body, paint, glass, lights, body hinges, gauges, window components, steering components, upholstery, engine leaks and tuning, radiators, transmission, rear end, brake components and suspension components.  The consumers are spending thousands of dollars repairing the classic vehicles they've purchased after the sale.  A bad purchase could turn into the buyer’s worst nightmare and be extremely costly!

MS CLASSIC CARS specializes in beautiful classic cars and trucks that are at a higher level of quality than most being advertised for sale. I personally have selected these vehicles and take pride in what I represent.  I'm not a classic car dealer who is only looking to make a quick buck.  I’ve seen dealers and private parties purchase classic vehicles at auctions and online and immediately list them for sale.  Most of these vehicles aren’t being advertised correctly and haven’t been serviced or detailed.  This business is my career and reputation which means everything to me.  I do the best of my ability to represent quality classic cars and advertise them honestly.  To be clear I’m not in the restoration business.  I represent classic vehicles that have already been restored.

  This vehicle is owned by MS CLASSIC CARS and is located in Seekonk, MA.  I personally have seen, touched and driven this vehicle.  This vehicle has been through a service and detail process which is documented with an MS CLASSIC CARS invoice.  I write the descriptions, take the photos, advertise them for sale and answer all the calls and emails.  I'll personally go over the entire vehicle and tell you everything I know about it.  I'll also give you my opinion if it’s truly the right vehicle for you. I’ll consider all trades and also offer financing if necessary.   Once you've committed to purchase a classic vehicle from MS CLASSIC CARS, I’ll make it a very easy process from start to finish.  Once the funds have cleared I'll immediately mail the paperwork USPS 2-day air.  A CD with the description and photos of the vehicle you purchased will be included in the package.  I’ll also assist in shipping your vehicle to its new home.

         If you've read the introduction tab or visited my website you’ll probably agree I'm a bit of a perfectionist and represent very detailed classic vehicles. MS CLASSIC CARS has a great reputation and we continue to raise the bar in the classic car and truck world.  I sell our classic cars and trucks very quickly because consumers see the value.  I look forward to working with you.  Please read my website testimonials and eBay positive feedback.  Thank you for the opportunity!
