Paul Prince - Collector Vehicle Appraisals was founded as a service to the old car hobbyists in Southwestern Ontario.
 

I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics and Computer Science from the University of Western Ontario.

I am Certified in Production and Inventory Management (CPIM) by the American Production and Inventory Control Society (APICS), I am a certified 65-66 Mustang and late model judge with the Mustang Club of America (MCA), and the Ontario Ministry of Finance has approved me as an independent appraiser.

My  first 'old car' was a 1968 Mustang convertible my father and I  purchased in 1976.  Even though it was only 8 years old it had always  been a local car and suffered the effects of rust and hard use. But this  was the car that brought me into the hobby.

My  current old car is a 1965 Mustang 2+2 I bought in 1991. It was  originally from North Carolina. It was discovered in a salvage yard and  brought back to life. Even though its early years were hard it survived rust free.  I know what it costs to restore an older vehicle. I know the  amount of work it takes. I do all of my own work except body and paint.  I have replaced engines, transmissions, clutches, rear ends, brakes,  etc. My Mustang has a stroked 289 with roller cam, Cobra intake, Edelbrock aluminum 2.02 o-ringed heads, Cobra oil pan, HiPo underdrive alternator pulley,  dual point hipo distributor, Ford roller rockers. The transmission is a TKO 600 heavy duty 5 speed with overdrive connected to a CenterForce  heavy duty clutch and Lakewood blow proof bell housing. The Ford 9  inch rear end contains 3.50:1 gears in a nodular iron 4 pinion centre  section, an Eaton locker and Versailles slotted and drilled disc brakes.  The front brakes are factory Kelsey-Hayes 4 piston discs. The front  strut rods are Street or Track adjustables. The spring perches  are OpenTracker roller units.  The steering is a fast ratio manual box  with the Shelby quick steer kit. Great quality parts working together  well makes for a fun car.

My  career has been spent at various companies. I spent 5 years working for  General Motors and 4 years at Ford Motor Company headquarters in  Dearborn, Michigan. I had the pleasure of meeting Carroll Shelby at the  Dearborn Assembly Plant (DAP) in 2003.
