Actress Lisa Bonet and actor Jason Momoa have been together since 2005, but there has always been one old love that Lisa hasn’t been able to let go of since they met: her 1965 Ford Mustang.
Despite how beat up it got over the years, Lisa refused to give up her first car, which she bought at 17 years old. Knowing how much she loved it, Jason teamed up with a custom car builder to restore the Mustang as a surprise for his wife.
The car had to be hosed off, then hosed off again, and probably a third time just to get it cleaned up. It was covered in rust, the engine didn’t run right, and in the interior had definitely seen some better days. Still, Jason and the guys at Divine 1 Customs were up for the challenge.
After a lot of elbow grease and long hours, the car was finally restored. Jason shared a video of the process on YouTube, and when he finally sees the finished product, he is totally amazed. With a smile that stretches across his whole face, he explains how much it means to him and how happy he is to have been able to do this for his wife.
When he brings the car home to show Lisa her surprise, she is stunned. She circles around the car, amazed at how they were able to bring it back to life, looking better than ever.
She continues to be in awe as she looks under the hood, runs her hands along the fresh exterior paint, and wraps her fingers around the new steering wheel.
Jason also shared the story on Instagram, explaining, “I wanted to surprise my wife with her first car she ever bought and bring it back to life and into our family.” He also thanked the team that worked so hard on restoring it, saying, “I could not have done this without the love and support they put into this project.”
