6 months ago I picked up a 66 Mustang 6cyl, that ran, with a title, for $500
It is rough, but my wife told me we were buying it before I could even look it over.
The deal was made and I trailered it home.
Shortly after I bought an old 55 series one Chevy truck, that was ratchet strapped to a 95 S10 frame, and that moved to the front of the line. Fast forward 5 months and the truck is on the road and driving, so the Mustang moved to the #1 position.
Car before being loaded and taken home
My son who has now claimed the Mustang as his, removing the fender
before he got too far disassembling the car, we pulled it into the garage.
Then we pulled the engine and fenders.
then removed the suspension and undercoating, and it is starting to look better
I was able to find 2 brand new fenders on Craigslist for $125.
Still black EDP coating on the back side, and a coat of primer on the front.
Then I found a set of wheels, regular price $179 each, and I got 4 of them for $69 each with free shipping
So far the only plans are
In the rear, a narrowed Explorer disk brake rear end, possible mini tub to run the new wheels, and I may also link the rear and do away with the leaf springs all together..
For the front, yesterday I ordered a Mustang II crossmember, and spindle/disk brake package as a start to the front end. Not what I originally planned, but I am on a budget, and this seems to be a good way to get some 5 lug disks and rack and pinion steering.
