My 1967 mustang coupe restoration project

hello everyone i just joined up and im taking on my 2nd big restoration on a classic car. Ive always wanted a 67 mustang and always prefered the coupes no idea why. I ended up picking up 2 cars for under 1000$ heres the list

2 power steering setups
1 in dash ac setup
1 power disk break setup
2 5 lug axles and spindles
3 sets of good doors and 4 sets of good fenders
1 302
about 100-15 trim pieces basically ever part from the junk yard for a 67
2 new floor board panels ready to install
1 set or original gauges no idiot lights
1 center console
tons of gta parts
a grill with fog lights (factory ones)
etc...................... basically a 32x60 foot shop packed besides tools

the one car i got basically for all the parts that came with body it 100% unsaveable the only good part is the inner rockers and thats about it lol but should have the parts for one amazing car

heres a few pictures let me know that you think





shes really taken apart at the moment but really to see what your project is gonna start like this is a good place to start i believe

not bad. however, if the parts listed here are for sale, you will likely be warned about it. they will need to go in a for sale ad which you are not able to do yet since you do not have enough posts or time on the forum yet.

On a positive note, I too am in that stage as well with the restoration. Mine has a bit of rust in the usual places as well. this big job ahead of me is replacing the passengers side A Pillar from the middle of the windshield post all the way down to the rocker...... what was I thinking

Oh well, this one has sentimental value to me and the fact that it's a factory S Code 4 speed car helps too..

good luck on your build and we would love to see more pics. hopefully a little clearer though

none of it is for sale i just figured i lucked out on so many factory options. The way i figure it most of us guys who buy a car like this do it because of the love of having your own 2 hands be the thing that brings the car back to life im ok with mine having rust because in the end ill appreciative so much more knowing all that went into it. Mine is not bad though floor pans (typical) and fender skirts and drivers quarter. the drivers quarter is not bad but its been covered once with a patch panel and so im gonna cut it off and put a complete new quarter on im just not a fan of skins. but i lucked out all my frame rails are solid and rockers and toe boards i think i might have to patch lower cowl but hey its a project so fun to learn

ill get some better pictures for you as well and lots as i work on it these were just ipod pics ill pull out my good camera as i start to work on it

also cant decide original restoration or resto mod what you guys think?

Looks great. We need to talk more about some of the other parts that you have. Gauges, trim parts etc....

so i am thinking of keeping close to stock with a c4 and a shift kit just put some better highway gears in the rear end vs a whole AOD trans i know people like the extra gear but i have a really nice c4 all rebuilt with less than 600 miles is the AOD really worth it considering this is a weekend and summer car ?

and sure pm me let me know of anything you want and i can see if i can help you out no problem

while over the past few days ive been picking up loads of parts and deals to go with the car including an original 67 mustang 289 engine and c4 trans. i also got a i6 c4 and 3 speed with clutch with all that stuff after a few days i only have $275 into it all gotta love craigslist



the c4 auto im putting in my car i got in all those parts super clean also came with a new B&M chrome trans pan and had a rebuild 600 (documented) miles ago swaped out by last owner for a AOD i wanna go original so i picked this up also has all the brackets and everything to go in lines and cables and shift lever everything





got this engine took a close look at it idk why he sold it for almost nothing it has 0 cylinder wall wear on it all the bearings look great i guess it sat in his shop for the last 25 years and he got it from a guy who pulled it from the original car for a BBF conversion i measured everything its a virgin block never bored and looks almost new top it off both engine and trans are both 67 parts should match well

what u guys think i should do to the 289 for a bit more power before it goes in i was thinking cam and intake ?

Im thinking about soda blasting the car not sure though usually i just hit it all with a da but some spots are harder to get but its a bigger cost to blast it VS just my labor which i dont mind working on it is half the fun.

looks like i lucked out my 289 is a perfect numbers match for my car a 67 with 2bll so i think ill stick close to stock a nice holley 2bll carb and a cam and headers

theres a lot of rust in the front of the frame rail where the bumper brackets go should i just replace the front or go for more strength and replace with a 100% new frame rail ? (i have to do fender aprons to so i gotta take them off anyways)

on another note ...... this is what craigslist and sawp meets do to your garage
