I am new to the VMF and look forward to finding all about the opportunities to restore my recently acquired 1968 Mustang fastback. Even though I have always wanted to find a 60's vintage car to restore I wasn't actively looking and hadn't planed on getting something quite so soon. But when I had the chance to pick up this car at a ridiculous price I pulled the trigger. The car was almost a barn find. It had been stored in a warehouse for the past 15 years in a state of disassembly. Front and rear bumpers were removed, front finders and hood taken off and the doors removed as well. The interior was gutted also. The good news is all the parts are still there. It is a "C" code car, with a 289 2 barrel and a 3 speed on the floor. It is a factory AC car. There is very little rust. I haven't decided what exactly I am going to do but I am leaning toward a resto-mod with a Bullitt theme. I plan to do all of the work myself with the exception of the body work and paint. Obviously, I have a lot to learn but I am looking forward to the journey.
