My original Introduction Post is here if you want some more background on this car and a bit about me.
My best guess as to how I ended up with this car is the person I bought it from told me he got it on eBay. I suspect when we got it he saw that the eBay seller had lied about the condition. The fresh paint was to hide the rest of the dubious bodywork.
It looks like someone tried to get the car running, there's a rubber fuel line from the tank to the engine bay. I have no idea if they were successful. I may or may not try to start the car. The six will get disposed of and I'm not even sure if I care if I get any money for it.
Here's a video I shot when I first saw the car. Notice that I didn't look underneath, probably because I didn't want to know what I would find.
Currently the car is stashed at my cousin's near by, and I have to get my garage reorganized and I should have the Mustang at my place after Labor Day. Then I can take a look and really see how much will need to be replaced. Floorboards and trunk extensions at the least. Torque boxes for sure. Not sure about the rocker panels. I reckon the cowl has to be gone too.
Yes the quarter panels are wrong.
The care has an Ohio title so we know it's seen some horrible conditions. Horrible.
More in a week or so.
