Hi, new here 66 Vert.

Hi everyone,

Just bought a 66 Mustang Convertible, décent shape but the previous owner lost the interior.
As I found out so far, front seats,door panels, carpet is easy to come by, back seat for a Vert on the other hand
Can anyone enlighten me as to what I could do ?
Hope to talk to you all in time and your wealth of knowledge.
I am in Canada, 50 miles from ND border, the car started its life in the USA, was registered in NY ten years ago where the previous owner bought it.
I am starting a restoration, hoping to modernize it a bit, long road ahead but I hope to keep you posted.

Phil

Welcome fellow Canuck to the forum. We like pics so post some up when you have time.

Also, it helps to add your location to your user details.

I can't help with the rear seat, but I am sure others will be able too.

How do you lose a complete rear seat? I've lost small trim parts but a rear seat?

Member hughnews1 has had some convertible parts for sale in the For Sale section of this site.

Welcome.
After your done with the restoration be sure to keep it garaged converts have a magnet built in to catch rust water. Which I'm sure you'll do anyway.
