Making a proper intro here. Years back my dad bought the remains of what was once a 67 fastback. The floor, etc was rusted away. The front clip was also gone. No interior, really just the roof is usable. So he bought it with the intention of turning a coupe into a fastback one day.
Iíve been keeping my eye out for a coupe to buy to do the deed. Fast forward to a month or so ago I found a 68 coupe locally, which happens very infrequently. Has some rust, but the price was right and it seems fixable and itís a V8 car. It also seems like the right donor car as apparently a tree fell on it at one point and someone somewhat crudely welded on another roof.
This will be a long term project. Iím 31, with three kids and not a lot of time or money so convinced my dad to buy the car
Time will tell as to who works on it and when.
If you look close, you can see the roof of the fastback hanging up at the ceiling of the last photo.
This is the first mustang for either of us. My dad has older Fords. I have a Model A pickup and a 67 LeMans convertible I bought and fixed up in high school.
