I'm finally getting around to fixing up my wife's 66 convertible after all these years. We bought 2 cars in 1980, this convertible that a lady traded in for a new Honda while we were looking for a new Civic. The kids still remember going to pickup Christmas trees in it since we didn't have a truck. The convertible has been sitting since about 1988, probably shortly after one of our neighbor kids was climbing on the top, splitting it wide open and falling onto the seat. It's a San Jose Candy Apple, red pony interior, PS, AC, A code, Auto, 8-track radio, AC with 142,000 miles on it. Sheet metal wise it's in great condition, with a few areas that need attention.
We also bought a 66 GT-350, VIN SFM6S524. We sold the Shelby in August of 2015 after enjoying for 35 years,
Here is what we are aiming for, but without the roll bar, no side-stripes, just red. And I may use the red luxury interior instead of a color change to black standard.
Now that I'm retired with more spare time on my hands, hopefully progress will be much faster than the last few years. Here it is a few years ago after rolling it out of the corner of the shop before mounting on the rotisserie. The fenders, doors, trunk lid, interior, etc. have been hanging on the walls and in the rafters since who know when.
I'll post a few more pictures of work that's been done since that last picture. Comments and feedback welcome.
