New to me 1965 Mustang

Hey all. My name is Bill, im a correctional nurse at a level 4 prison in northern California. Im married to my beautiful wife and have 3 little brats to keep me company. Anyways an amazing opportunity fell into my lap yesterday. I was picking up some goats my wife had bought, when the husband came up to me and said they were going to be moving and if i liked cars. I said sure, so he walks me back to his barn and says he'll give me a screaming deal. Pulls back a tarp and there is a 1965 Ford Mustang. He said he started to take it apart to restore it 20 years ago. The straight 6 engine is out on an engine stand, and he through in 2 transmissions. Also i get the engine stand and the cherry picker and an extra 5.0 engine he doesnt know much about. The interior is there but in very poor shape. Car is on non-op but registration is up to date.Wanna know what the screaming deal was.....?I tow it and its all mine. Free. Of course i said yes!So know I have a project. I wont be able to start on it until after the 22nd and when i get it home ill start a restore thread and show off some pics. PS: He also through in a 1997 Harley Davidson Sportster for $800, which i also picked up. Registration up to date as well.Look forward to talking to you guys.Bill
