My restoration of an S code

So this is a car that I sold after restoring to Vanguard Motors... Not posting it to try and get people to buy it but more showing you guys my latest project that I just wrapped up. Over the years I have been restoring fastbacks on the side.. Well, I now have a building and a full time painter as a partner and we are restoring mustangs all day long. I have 3 S code projects in line now (I own them) and in the middle of installing a professional paint booth (oh man, lot of work with that one). Anyway, I figure I should follow my passion and do what I love to do. It's taken me about a year to get the building in shape (while restoring a couple of cars along the way). I hope to post more projects as we get settled! Here is a link to the video and a pic of one of the areas of the shop! I know, there is a corvette in the background. Barn find, couldn't resist!

Thanks,

1967 Ford Mustang | eBay

That's awesome, congratulations! Sometimes I wish I could restore cars for a living until I accidentally cut half my arm off while removing a floor pan ...then I figure its probably a good thing I have a desk job! Nice work on the 67... are you considering auctioning them yourself?

Very nice work on the '67. In some respects, my old car and yours are similar. One feature listed for your car that I do not have is the "Extendable Athena". Is that part of the very rare Frederick's of Hollywood package?

Thanks Jeff... Yeah not sure about the "extendable Athena" or the factory "Counsel". I didn't see any lawyers in the trunk when I was working on the car!

Call me with the next floor pan! Yes, I typically do auction them off. These guys paid market value for the last 2 cars I built. Kind of no hassle which is really nice. Next up is a 67 GT390 4spd fastback. Clearwater Aqua!
