Thumbup My First Restoration 67' Coupe

I'm Going with a 67' Coupe that has been sitting out in the weather for the last 10 years. It needs all new floor pans and a upper and lower cowl. It has a 302 and the 5 speed trans from a 86' Fox body. I will post more pictures of my progress.

Welcome to the forum, nice 67 you got there.
You've got a fair amount of work ahead of you.
You've found the best place for answers.
The "Search" feature top-center is awesome...like this forum.

Slowly restoring and improving dads '68 289 Coupe...

Thanks everyone I've already had a ton of questions answered just by going through some older posts. I'm already about a month into this, I'll try and post some updated pics later.

After installing long floor pans in my '70, I'd recommend you just install an entire new floor. It's actually easier and looks much nicer when it's done. It's easy to be scared off the price of the floor with shipping. But believe me. It's worth it!

That's what I did. Much easier to do than trying to patch the floorpan.

Looking good! You may have just convinced me to go ahead w/ the full floor replacement on my 68. Doing my teardown now, and have been debating this same thing. Keep up the good work, and thanks for any updates that you're able to give!

Confused Question about which glass to buy

I'm in the process of ordering new front and rear glass being that the car didn't come with either. I'm noticing a big differance in price not just amongst the different parts warehouses but also all the options for the glass itself. Any suggestions and info would be apprieciated. Thanks
