First time Mustang Owner !

Hello Everyone! just this last week a 1964.5 Mustang with the 289 came into my possession. The body of the car is in good shape, the interior not so much. the engine runs rough but it runs. I am starting to restore the car into what it looked like when it rolled off the assembly line. If anyone has any tips or tricks they are willing to share i would love to hear it! Glad to be apart of the Forum!

Hello and welcome. You came to the right spot for vintage Mustang info. There a few other owners also from AB on the board. Post some pics of your car, we'd love to have a look.
